AccountingWEB head of insight John Stokdyk looks back at a month dominated by dramatic tribunal decisions and the next wave of regulatory shocks.

For the first time in nearly two years, AccountingWEB saw a slight drop in MTD traffic in June 2019. The digital record-keeping regime came into force for the first tranche of VAT filers on 1 April, with more registered VAT businesses coming on board on the first of each subsequent month. So far the transition has passed without major alarms, but Mark Purdue’s 25 June contribution, MTD has gone live, now what? was late entrant to our monthly hit parade. His companion 20-page PDF guide was also our top resource of the month, with 1,446 downloads.

As expected, June also saw a raft of Any Answers questions about benefits in kind ahead of the 6 July P11D filing deadline and strong traffic and debate around related articles from our payroll and benefits experts Kate Upcraft and the CIPP’s Samantha Mann, who both clearly understood the value of talking about topical compliance issues.

Here are all the other big hitters on AccountingWEB for June across our different sections:
