Last night the Government announced a scheme that assists the self-employed across the country during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Self-Employed Income Support Scheme will provide self-employed individuals a taxable grant worth 80% of trading profits, up to £2,500 a month for the next three months. It will also apply to members of partnerships.
Leaving the EU
The UK is leaving the European Union on 31 January 2020.
Following the General Election on 12 December 2019, the UK Government is implementing the Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement meaning the UK can leave the European Union on 31 January 2020.
Our ‘No Deal’ provisions, including changes to Companies House forms and EC Sales list filing will not be implemented on 31 January 2020; however, they may at a later stage, once government have finalised details. In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the Government's negotiations with the EU and consider potential impacts at the end of the implementation period.
HMRC have provided information confirming they are waiving late filing penalties or interest where the 31 January deadline is missed or payment of the correct tax is less than it should be due to the continuing errors in HMRC’s 2016/17 tax calculation. Read more for the full statement from HMRC...

As you may have heard in recent announcements, such as the one from our CEO Tracy Ebdon Poole Making Tax Digital for Business has been delayed. However, the ability for information to be automatically populated in a Self Assessment tax return is still pressing on.
Having first written about this in early 2016, we thought it was time to update our customers as to the progress of this.
Sounds unlikely? Surely most firms expect to wait a little longer for support from their software suppliers in the run up to the return filing deadline? True, but I’m pleased to say things are different for TaxCalc customers.
Maintaining excellence in Customer Support is as important to us as every other aspect of our business offering. Other providers might identify Support as an easy target for cost-savings. We, on the other hand, invest heavily in our Support team to provide a prompt, and technically-superior service to our customers. For instance, we place great emphasis on answering our Support Line in seconds rather than minutes. I’m exceptionally proud to tell you that our team achieved an average of only 22 seconds to answer our customers during January. Those of you who’ve had the ‘pleasure’ of waiting for 20 minutes and more for other providers to handle your query in the past will appreciate the speediness of this level of response.Read more
