Quite frankly they should ditch the whole stupid idea of MTD.
MTD achieves none of the stated objectives of making tax simpler, reducing errors, raising more money for HMRC and helping small business. All the figures and estimates are made up or plain bogus. Its chaos in the making .. yet again.
I have clients who are keen to embrace the modern online bookkeeping options but still manage to make a pig's ear of things on a fairly regular basis. Goodness knows how clients who don't want to embrace the new technology (the vast majority of my clients) will get on with it if they are given the opportunity!
I continue to email various MPs about this on a regular basis but such is the inertia at MP level that I haven't managed to elicit a single reply (not even from MPs I know personally quite well). Shows how interested they are.
Not sure what Corbyns position is on this but hopefully with the hung Parliament the whole idea will be put out to dry .. good weather for it down here!!
