This is about the public sector.
Who is in charge of the public sector? The government.
If they just told public sector bodies that they were not allowed to engage people in this way would that not be a great deal less complex and much cheaper (for the government)?

Using volunteers for the trial would remove any shred of validity from it.
The volunteers will either be the dead-keen who think this is all fun.
Or - and here is a challenge to you all - they will be those who think MTD is a terrible idea and they might just do everything to demonstrate that it is cr*p.
Please for an orderly line.............

I am pretty sure that MPs (along with certain other groups) are dealt with in a special office in Cardiff that is not linked to the internet for "security" reasons. So none of them know anything about doing their tax online - because they don't.

Tim - I think you have totally missed the point.

If I pay for software and it turns out to be a real dog and messes up my tax returns and I get a penalty I will claim from the software provider.
If I use HMRC software and it is a real dog and messes up my tax returns and I get a penalty I will tell HMRC where to stick it.
If I use some free stuff that I found on line and ..ditto... who do I sue?

"tools to support accountants through the transition to the Making Tax Digital regime" Ha ha ha
It will be no good unless it includes a big box of valium and a case or three of gin.

I haven't read the relevant regulations and I do not intend to do so.
But I know a pedant who would question whether the need is to send the letter to "clients who have received advice about offshore assets or income". Would it not be limited to "clients who have been given advice on offshore assets or income by the firm"?

Gabriel vs the Angel
So Angela Knight, Chair of the Office of Tax Simplification loses out again to Gabriel Osborne, Chair of the Office of Tax Complexification.
But I guess she always will

Michael c feltham ..... Excellent
This is not just about SMEs , this is about the EU Referendum. We need to be in there fighting for a properly balanced Europe. Not one where each member is jockeying for its own position. SMEs are the lifeblood of most EU countries and the overpaid and undertaxed and overpensioned EU bureacrats need to have their rrrses kicked to work in the interests of those who pay the taxes that pay their overinflated benefits.
