We have no membership fees and no long-term commitments – just good food and good company. We hope you can join us!
Ladies Lunch News June 2017
Making Tax Digital
Many of you may have heard of the intended changes in how taxpayers interact with HM Revenue & Customs known as “Making Tax Digital” (MTD). The intended timetable for introducing MTD has been dropped in view of the announcement of a general election on 8 June. We are fairly certain that this is just a postponement and MTD will be with us in the next few years.
When MTD goes live businesses will have to make quarterly returns to HMRC which will mean their accounting systems will need to be up to date. We are strongly advising clients to review their accounting system to ensure that they are ready for MTD. Using Xero will assist businesses in getting ready for MTD.
Xero cloud-based book keeping system
We are pleased to report that the cloud-based accounting book keeping system Xero is proving extremely popular with our clients.
Everything is run online, there is nothing to install and data is backed up automatically. You can log on to the package from any device and anywhere which allows easy access and update of your records. Bank feeds from your business bank accounts allow data to be recorded directly from the bank account into Xero.
As Platinum Partners of Xero we can:
- move your existing accounting system to Xero
- implement conversions, set up and train
- assist with queries as they arise.
Please contact us if you would like more information or a free demonstration of Xero.
