I watched RB's webinar today on MTD and came away somewhat dismayed by it all. Rebecca is full on board with MTD and due to her dedication and expertise is gearing up her firm to be MTD ready. I too think I am quite good at what I do and provide a good service to my clients. However, I am one man band and many of my clients use spreadsheets and some still keep handwritten records. I am happy and my clients are happy. I do not have the time or inclination to try and train them on software and come MTD and digital records, the workload will increase dramatically. Rebecca's somewhat blunt advice is if your not on board, then find another job. So there may be a trip to Asda or Tesco in the near future to seek out a new career in perhaps shelf stacking. Overall, I found that Rebecca is not really on the side of the small accountancy business such as myself, and does not appear to even care that many of us could potentially lose our livelihood to perhaps bigger firms. And what about our small clients, who in reality will have no interests in changing the habits of a lifetime. Why should they be forced into this?
