"All directors and secretaries to have a unique identifying number..." How many numbers do we need? ASA, ASA (MTD), UTR, NINO, PAYE Employer number, PAYE Accounts Office number, VAT number etc. Use NI numbers, and create a special category for overseas directors.

I used to work in a bank in the 60s, and doing 8CBs was a job no-one wanted to do, as it was so boring. The task was therefore generally delegated to junior members of staff, which is why there were so many errors, particularly with those unfortunate customers who had common names or multiple accounts.

I simply cannot be bothered with this, so I am retiring earlier than I would normally retire.

I know of at least one software provider that hasn't even started their MTD preparations, because HMRC wouldn't let them. Crazy!

As a fellow bookkeeper who attended a recent webinar, I whole-heartedly agree. Consulting but not listening. Standard replies to questions. My two questions were not even answered!

Am I alone...
Am I alone in not trusting cloud accounting? What happens if the company behind it goes bust? It has happened to me twice, so I need a system which I can back up on my own systems. Does Xero enable me to do that, or is there another company out there that does cloud accounting with physical back ups - like the very expensive Sage.
