Insight Exchange editor Valme Claro talks through the last 30 days for the AccountingWEB audience.
May has left us the first horror story about an MTD for VAT return gone wrong. Neil Warren’s article about a small business that made £19,000 of VAT errors on its first return was the most popular story on the site last month.
