News and events from TaxCalc
It’s our absolute pleasure to announce the roll out of a substantial update to TaxCalc Accounts Production. Many months in the making, this release will introduce new small company accounting standards, such as micro entities, FRSSE 2015 and FRS102 for small companies and a number of improvements in other areas.
TaxCalc customers will know we love listening to customer feedback. We’ve never been afraid of making changes and tweaks to the software and even, in some cases, rewriting the way something is done to make it even better.
In this first of two blog articles, we’ll take a look at what’s in store.Read more
In something of an irony (considering who’s received it), a phishing email beat my spam filter last night and landed in my personal inbox. Purporting to come from HMRC, I apparently have a VAT tax refund waiting for me and need to follow the link to fill out a form to claim it. What excitement for a Thursday evening!
I think that everyone will agree with me that this is really quite a suspicious looking email. However, looking today at the kinds of emails TaxCalc generally receives from HMRC, especially with regard to VAT and VAT MOSS, even official emails from HMRC can appear to be quite generic.
For example, VAT return reminders are addressed to Sir or Madam and VAT MOSS emails to just “VAT MOSS user”. Whilst said emails may quote the name of the company and our VAT number, these can easily be found on our website.
The email prompted me to think about how we can stay safe with phishing scams.

Back in the March Budget, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, announced that the tax return would be replaced by a Digital Tax Account by the end of this parliament. As is often the case with Government policy, such broad statements don’t have any immediate substance to them apart from a few broad concepts.
Over the six months that have followed, HMRC have been beavering away at working out what a Digital Tax Account should look like and how it should work. We have been fortunate to be part of this and have helped to shape this development.
Bit by bit, the picture of how the Digital Tax Account will work has become increasingly more clear and now we can finally begin to explain how some of this will work.
