MTD/SAGE/ESTIMATOR

MTD sage calculator - interesting results

Didn't find your answer?

I wondered what you guys thought of the recent MTD calculator I received in an email from SAGE.

The number of filings is shocking to say the least and for almost all self-employed. I have worked with my clients who struggle with the MTD mandation even now. Now we have less educated taxpayers being forced to file returns from digital records they struggle to keep. How in all honesty can this work as with my 60 clients many only send records in by constant chasers and even now I have at least 5 clients not returned documents or other information needed to file in January. I just can't imagine what will happen if someone at HMRC dosn't sit up and listen to the Accountants.

I wish I only had 5 stragglers! :-)

Seriously though it's a disaster and in my opinion needs to be halted in its tracks (or else the limit raised to the VAT registration limit if it has to be brought in at all) but we seem to be viewed as whingers who don't know what's good for either ourselves or more importantly our clients!

It's not as if we're working at the 'coal face' is it?!!!

What did the email / results say? Shockingly good, bad or otherwise?

Pleasing to know I cannot read your emails. (-;

Is it another case of online software companies misuse of customers’ data?

HMRC will force it to work by judicious use of penalties (or is that random use??)
