July was dominated by the new reverse tax rules and other upcoming tax changes as well as seasonal topics such as holiday pay. Insight Exchange (iX) editor Valme Claro looks back at the biggest headlines on AccountingWEB in the last 30 days.

July’s traffic patterns show a surge in traffic around the new reverse charge rules that will be introduced in October 2019. Neil Warren’s draft letter for clients involved in the construction industry was the most read article on AccountingWEB this month.

Elsewhere and in line with July’s warm weather and holiday spirit, a case involving holiday pay and voluntary overtime and has been one of the hottest issues in the last few weeks.

But even during the holidays, the always-on culture continues being a problem for many accountants. The practitioners’ almost inexistent lunch breaks was the focus of one of the most read stories on the practice section of AccountingWEB this month.

In the accounting tech world, July has also seen the announcement of the Software Excellence Awards 2019, which will culminate with an awards night on 12 September in London. The finalists were revealed in the most read technology article of the month.
