Post Accountex highlights

 

It’s been just over a week since we returned from Accountex, all very tired after such a busy few days

For those of you who don’t recognise the name Accountex, it the leading exhibition for accountants at the London Excel where we have been exhibiting for the last 3 years.

The four hour car journey covered in merchandise and singing our favourite songs meant we arrived in high spirits, only to have our expectations exceeded by the many people we met

Making Tax Digital presentation 

Our CEO John Whelan had the opportunity to talk about Making Tax Digital in the Tax now theatre. He promised to be entertaining and informative, and he did not disappoint, from software based jokes and retro theme songs, to informative advice that would be beneficial to all John attracted a large crowd with standing room only!

John chose Making Tax Digital as his discussion topic as it is only becoming increasingly important with less then a year until it is fully in force. Many in the audience were more resistant to the changes and wanted to know more about it and if it would affect them, John made sure to clear up any queries that anyone may have had whilst keeping it light-hearted and gaining a laugh or two.

If you have any queries about Making Tax Digital and would like to receive John’s presentation, email us at admin@mydigitialaccounts.com

IR35

With the recent news coverage IR35 has become a question on many peoples minds, especially at Accountex, people asking if they are eligible or not? As we specialise in the temporary labour market the IR35 test is included in our software to help workers avoid receiving an-unwelcome call from the tax man due to poor IR35 advce.

Merchandise 

We really stocked up on merchandise this year from cloud stress balls which were the most popular to branded calculators to power banks. We even had people coming over at the end of the show asking for power banks before the journey home. Hopefully this means our name and logo is now a staple feature in accounting offices up and down the country.

 

We had a fantastic time at Accountex this year and cannot wait for the next, only 334 days left!
