Making tax digital

Re think his implementation of the "making tax digital" implementation

Why is this important?

First of all the Chancellor needs to realise that most small business owners are not accountants, they are builders, engineers, plumbers, decorators, and that they have been presenting their vat documents via the HMRC gateway for years without any issues, now he wants businesses to go digital by using one of the MTD accounting programs I.e. Sage, QuickBooks, Xero etc etc, they are very complicated one needs to be a book keeper or equivalent to understand them not to mention the added costs to the business.


Reasons for signing

  • Unnecessary cost to business - why should business owners pay extra for new / updated software for the 'privilege' of paying VAT over to HMRC? The Government Gateway system works fine - there is no need for MTDfV.
  • Completely lost my patience with this when my HMRC Agent Accounts still says that I am unable to join due to having more than 200 on Self Assessment!!! What's that got to do with VAT??
  • Totally unnecessary extra cost on business.
