While political commentators are still talking about the scale of victory, here at AccountingWEB we want to know what the Conservative Party’s handsome majority means for the accountancy profession. 

Host Richard Hattersley is joined by two seasoned Westminster watchers in AccountingWEB’s editor Tom Herbert and PracticeWeb’s head of content Ray Newman to flick through the Conservative manifesto and see what tax policy changes may be in store.

We certainly know Boris Johnson wants to “get Brexit done” but could we see a review of the new off-payroll rules? We know from their manifesto that the government has promised to freeze the rates of NIC, VAT and income tax, but our pod team ponders what else the Party may have up their sleeve.

Beyond the political nitty-gritty that accountants need to know, the team also considers what lessons accountants can learn from the election. Yes, there are actually some valuable election-winning lessons that might help you pick up some clients. Yes, really.

So tune in and, in the words of our prime minister, get this podcast done.

If you have a thirst for more election chat, Tom Herbert was up watching until the final count to bring you this overview of the landslide win that sent Boris Johnson back into 10 Downing Street.
