Hello one and all,
Following on from my call-out for tech story ideas, I’m looking to kick off an (as yet untitled) series on sectional articles such as ‘what’s the best software for landlord clients?" or "what's best for taxi drivers?’, as suggested by ireallyshouldknowthisbut.
Am starting with the taxi driver scene - can anyone with taxi clients, ahem, drive me in the right direction? Is accounting for taxi drivers any different than regular self-employed accounting? There seem to be a lot of accountancy sites specialising in services for taxi drivers but what's the difference? Is there a higher risk of enquiry from HMRC? I guess in the past it was quite cash-heavy, but with the likes of Uber and the pandemic has this changed?
And on the software front, do the big players accommodate any kinky nuances the sector has? There seem to be specific tools available like Taxi manager, The drivers tax app, TaxiMATE etc. Are there any people use or have tried, and what should accountants look out for when choosing such tools?
If you have a minute and are feeling kind do let me know below, or if you’d prefer to chat drop me a private message on the site or email [email protected].
All the best,
