Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

At the heart of northern business since 1882

Making tax digital update

Date: 6 October 2020 09:30 to 12:30

Type: Legal and Regulatory, Tax

Organiser: NorSCA

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.

This session will look at the July 2020 announcements from HMRC in regard to the process not only of the MTD project, but to what might develop with personal and business tax accounts over the next few years. It will cover the current requirements for VAT as a refresher, picking the tricky areas, and then move to the meat of developments to come through to 2023 when we shall see full mandation for income tax.

Content will include:

  • 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?
  • Income tax self assessment – the timeline. 2023 mandation – who will it affect? What will be needed? How will the mechanics work? What about very small businesses? Landlords and holiday lets.
  • Corporation tax plans and proposals
  • Where to with digital tax accounts?
