Making Tax Digital.



Making Tax Digital

At the March 2015 Budget, the government set out the vision for a modernised tax system, replacing tax returns with digital tax accounts for individuals and small businesses, changing the way HMRC obtains and uses information and how customers will interact with them. Since then, HMRC have been developing the vision it set out and how they will deliver it.

In the Autumn Statement and Spending Review the government announced that it will invest £1.3bn in HMRC to transform it into one of the most digitally advanced tax administrations in the world.

HMRC have since followed this up on 14th December with the publication of “Making Tax Digital”, the document sets out the roadmap that was mentioned in March publication “Making tax easier:

The roadmap provides a relatively high level outline of how taxpayers’ experience of dealing with HMRC will develop between now and 2021. The roadmap also sets out the high level journey taxpayers and HMRC will go on over the next few years, including the public consultation will contribute to developing the detail of changes to policy and how it is implemented.

Tax-free childcare.

The new tax-free childcare scheme is being introduced from April 2017 and will provide a top up to employed and self-employed parents whose employer doesn’t provide support for childcare costs. It has now been announced that families will be ineligible if either parent earns more than £100,000 (originally £150,000). Additionally, both parents will be required to work a minimum of 16 hours per week paid at national minimum wage rates – so voluntary work won’t count. Originally this was eight hours.

In 1990 they converted an old mill and moved to Shepley. In May 1996 Philip Lofthouse joined the partnership and after the retirement of Mr Stead in 2003 and Mr Robinson in 2004, Philip became the Practice Manager and in 2012 we relocated to our beautifully restored offices in Honley.
