Rebecca Benneyworth has been an advocate of MTD since the consultation period in 2016 and remains keen to ensure that as many smaller firms and businesses as possible take advantage of these changes.

This session is an essential update for anyone working practice in accounts or tax as Rebecca will give delegates a clear idea of what processes they will need to adopt to serve clients in a completely new reporting environment. It would also be suitable for those working in business, although there is little detail as yet on plans for corporation tax.

  • MTD for VAT requirements – a brief refresher; tricky practical areas
  • April 2021 developments – full digital links in place – how to achieve this
  • April 2022 developments – everyone in for VAT! Dealing with very small businesses. To deregister or not?
