HMRC waive late filing penalties for returns affected by an Exclusion

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...

The TaxCalc guide to filing your Self Assessment return

Let’s be realistic. Filing your Self Assessment return is never going to be something that makes you whoop for joy. But it’s a necessary thing to do. As you probably know, you’ve got to get your tax return in by Jan 31 2018  at the very latest – or you’ll be liable for a £100 fine. No-one wants that, especially after the expense of Christmas.

Pre-population of Self Assessment Tax Returns Using HMRC APIs

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.

January? The best time of year to call TaxCalc Support?

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.

Making Tax Digital - Consultation Documents

HMRC have now published their consultation documents on the Making Tax Digital (MTD) strategy. Covering six separate documents and totalling 243 pages, together they set out HMRC’s vision for the future for the UK’s tax system.

For some time now, we’ve been taking time to inform our customers of the key concepts behind Making Tax Digital: Digital Tax Accounts, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and Quarterly Updates. The consultations not only help explain these plans but introduce some new ideas not previously imagined.

We’ve dissected the first of the six documents and here are our high-level findings…

Due to matters such as the local elections and the EU Referendum, not an awful lot has happened since then. However, there have been a few matters of note arising…

As part of HMRC’s Making Tax Digital strategy, we have been expecting security improvements to be made to taxpayers’ access to their online accounts via the Government Gateway.
