Last Thursday, 11th October, My Digital Accounts and FCSA hosted an event at Brabners Headquarters in Manchester. Speakers on the day included Lee Hawksworth of HMRC, Robert Woodward of Saffrey Champness, Emma James from Brabners and our very own John Whelan.

The event opened with Emma and Robert skilfully navigating the guests through recent legislation changes and predicting what October 29th will bring. The afternoons speakers (and dancers!) looked at HMRC’s plans to become world leaders in term of digitalisation of how they monitor

and collect taxes… there was no mention of Brexit at any point!

The big learning from the day was that there is only a short time left before Making Tax Digital goes live for VAT, with only two VAT quarters left before HMRC shut down the old submissions gateway! Can anybody that was in attendance remember the 3 crucial questions that you should be asking your current software supplier?

The event was attended by FCSA Accredited Members, those aiming to achieve the Accreditation, Recruitment Agencies and friends and clients of My Digital Accounts. We are already looking forward to the next joint event with Julia and the FCSA team – please leave song suggestions for Johns next ‘dancing presentation’ in the comments section!
