Just done our own VAT return , and it went ok, just something went wrong on the first attempt, but on the second attempt it went straight through. The confirmatory message ( annoyingly you have to log in to see it ) even has the correct amount of VAT to be deducted next week !

Probably more mileage in making the case to the credit checking agencies - they can probably set up an algorithm to spot the offenders. As with most people busy running their own businesses I have time to moan but no time to lobby !

To my mind it's abuse and should be limited by obliging companies to justify the request. We have a current case of a company we deal with owing money to lots of people ( inlcuding us ! ) and who keep postponing their accounts reporting date. What is more, the Credit checkers, such as Experian, do not seem to notice the abuse. It stinks.

As a user ot TAS, I was worried that they are not supporting MTD. However there is a company ( Infoplex ) who make many add on modules for TAS and their module for MTD seems reasonably priced. We have purchased it, but not run it yet. We have multi warehouse, multi currency, and unlimited assemblies as part of our add on modules, all of which are refinements not offered by Sage, which is why we never migrated. TAS lives on !

Most of the suggestions below torpedo the whole "this is for your increased security" principle !!!

Beware of updates! We installed updates in our server with the result that our laptops can no longer log on remotely. W. Gates has caused more blood, sweat, tears and profane language than any one else on this planet !!

Looks like the acquirer bought a shop lease for £100,000 from Company B , with some sort of agreement that Company A would cease trading, vacate and hand over their trading assets such as stock and fittings, for which Company A got £50,000 from Company B. So Company A's profit on the sale of their goodwill and assets was £50,000 less the cost of those assets and taxed accordingly. Company B's profit for selling the lease was £50,000 ( £100,000 less 50,000 ) less any costs for originally acquiring the lease and they should be taxed accordingly. Arrangements between Co A and B prior to the sale are irrelevant.

I agree with the first and last responses. The employee had no benefit and probably incurred additional personal costs in booking of a new holiday ( or suffered the loss of a holiday for which they receiv ed no compensation - which would have been taxable ). A payment received from a travel insurance company in parallel circumstances would not be taxed as income.

3 year grace period to dispose of Principal Property
This may have been changed in recent budgets, but I believe there is a grace period between moving out of a property and its disposal before CGT becomes applicable. I thought the period was 3 years, however others who are more up to date may well correct me ?
The OP states the property wasn't his client's PP for the last 2-3 years of ownership.
There also was additional relief if the property was rented after moving out. Is this still also the case ?
