November news

Upcoming legislation: Ultra Low Emission Vehicles

From 6 April 2020 the car and car fuel benefit calculation is changing with the introduction of 11 new bands for ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) including a separate zero emissions band. This is to support the Government’s commitment to improving air quality in towns and cities. If your client’s company car has a CO2 emission figure of 1-50g/km, they will need to provide the cars zero emission mileage. This is the distance that the car can travel in miles on a single electric charge.

Clients are also simply too busy and are accustomed to viewing documents on-screen and printing only when necessary.

MTD for VAT is here, how are you faring?

Following the introduction of MTD for VAT and the first quarterly submission deadline having just passed on the 7th August, we’ve taken a look through 4 of the common errors encountered with the HMRC MTD portal.

Fine. Or fine?

Fine. or fine?

What can an independent practice learn from the software selection process used by a 200-strong accountancy franchise?

We were recently asked to join two of the directors of the TaxAssist franchise on stage at Accountex. The brief was to share some of the lessons we both learnt during their recent software review, which resulted in TaxCalc being rolled out nationally for core compliance needs.

Whilst outlining the key criteria that turned out to be pivotal in the assessment for the network, it struck us that the very same principles equally apply to an independent practice considering their own needs, and are worth sharing.
