We’re sorry to break the bad news but January is here again which means accountants across the country will be chasing clients and working late into the night.

Here on the No Accounting for Taste podcast, we don’t want to dwell on the negativity of tax return season. Oh no! Surely you, dear listener, don’t need us to remind you of the stress that January brings a number of you. Instead, we’re going to focus on the positives.

Appropriately then, our guest on the podcast is someone who has endured eight self assessment seasons during her time in practice and has survived to tell her tale. Friend of the podcast and former practice owner Della Hudson stops by the pod booth and finds the positives to spin out of every accountant’s annual headache.

Tax return season is not the only New Year ritual. For those not too distracted by tax returns, January is typically a time to set your practice goals for the coming year. With many resolutions and goals faltering before the month draws to a close, meticulous planner Hudson shares some tips to help get your 2020 ambitions on track.

If that wasn’t enough, AccountingWEB’s editor Tom Herbert takes a whistle-stop tour through the headlines coming out of the week in accountancy, including the government’s review of IR35 in the private sector and with a date finally in our diaries for the Budget, what can expect from the annual fiscal event?

All that and more on this week’s No Accounting for Taste. You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts or click play above.
