I spoke last week to one software company to see whether they would be ready for the pilot in April. They referred me to HMRC. No one seem to have a clue what they are doing!

Sadly there is a misconception that being nice equates to being weak.
And i have never heard of a client recommending their nasty accountant to their friends.

Maybe I am old school but I much prefer the format of the written exam than computer based assessments.
Yes you need to bring a suitcase for the Tolley material and the desks are so small and so close together that you end up with books and draft papers all other the place- mainly under your chair.
To be honest time is so tight that if you don't know straight away where to find a specific piece of legislation there is no point wasting time on it!

Thanks for sharing your story Alice, it reminds me of my days working for a small practice. I sometimes miss the office environment, the banter and the support of colleagues. I don't miss office politics though.
Looking forward to reading your next blog.

You can now print invoices - it states
"invoice issued by Uber on behalf of Ahmed"
with Description/Tax point/Net amount/Gross amount
and underneath "VAT not applicable, below the VAT threshold"

I agree with mrme89.
You probably could find an AAT studier (L2 or 3) with 1 year experience who would be competent on the tasks you require. However would you support them in their studies and would the job description grow with them?
Curious to know what PA tasks you would expect from them?
