I was added to HMRC's beta testing of AOSS this morning. HMRC are pursuing a deliberately slow roll-out and, apparently, very few agents have so far been enrolled in the beta, so I thought I'd use this blog to keep others informed of how HMRC's latest tool is progressing.
At the moment, it's early days and the tool doesn't yet do too much. It only covers PAYE and, for those clients, it only shows the totals due and paid for each tax year. That is, of course, information that is only currently available to clients (or agents who use a client's login credentials) on the existing system, so it is already an improvement. I am told that it will shortly break down the yearly liabilities by month and that other taxes (starting with VAT) will be added later in the year.
I will add to this blog as and when HMRC roll out new features but, if anyone has any suggestions or comments that you'd like fed back to the AOSS team, feel free to let me know.
