Welcome to another edition of AccountingWEB’s Making Tax Digital podcast.
Last week was Accountex, the UK’s biggest conference for accounts. HMRC CEO Jon Thompson was due to provide the keynote speech outlining the Revenue’s position on MTD, but the government’s election lockdown on policy announcements meant he had to cancel.
However, there was still plenty of MTD-related news and discussion, including a strong rumour that the project will be delayed, and part one of the podcast addresses some of that news with AccountingWEB’s very own John Stokdyk and Mark Purdue, Product Manager - Tax Products at Thomson Reuters.
In part two Mark Purdue returns for his traditional mailbag slot, this time tackling some of the biggest myths he has come across when answering questions on MTD.
And the pod finishes off with a quick chat with Gary Jacobs, the first practitioner to join HMRC’s Making Tax Digital pilot programme, to get an update on how he’s finding the scheme so far.
The Making Tax Digital podcast is recorded on a monthly basis. If you have any burning questions you can ask them in the comments box below and our panel will do their best to answer them next time around.
