Very useful indeed.
Seems to me that.......
..... Very little has changed at all.
I hope that the author got a fat fee for this article: good work if you can get it! ☺
I like the blatant advert Niall!!!!!!!!

You can't be too careful..........
Then there's the threat from mind reading aliens...
Or we can put it all in perspective, and that recommend common sense and proportionality kicks in.
Well yes........ you CAN be too careful. You just need to evaluate the risks yourself and not just rely on what someone else believes.
It would seem to me that the risk of the Royal Mail postman delivering a set of accounts and a tax return to the wrong address and it then being opened by the wrong recipient are far, far greater than someone intercepting and opening an email containing the same documents as attachments.
Good post Angus - thanks - the voice of reason speaks!
It brings to mind...........

(without the humour of course)
One wonders if this was ever tested on.......... on whom???????????????/
"In my opinion the days are numbered for desktop based software"
That has been said of desktop PCs for years and years now and they are still around. This idea of everything being "in the cloud" has been around for years too and it still hasn't happened.
Some will work one way and some another - fanatics will insist only one way is best and the rest of us will just continue to do what we have always done - use what is most efficient for us at the present but remain open to change.
4G is around the corner and will provide broadband-like speeds to most of the country,
Some of us can't even get 3G.
"Most of the country" appears to be a misnomer for "most of the population", but the two certainly are NOT synonymous.

I am just curious since I have never heard of anybody doing that before.
Most of you have families who hardly see you in Dec-Jan.
This seems to be the case but for the life of me, I cannot see why. Educating one's clients is the key to a quiet and productive life.
OK if you are going to charge double or triple fees for busting a gut to file on time, then it might be worth it, but to do it for the same fee is simply insane. Akin to running your practice with all D clients!
My way is to tell anyone who brings in their books that late that it is highly unlikely that I will file on time and they will get fined but that there is a sporting chance I might get it in on time! When and if I do file on time, it means lots of brownie points and they usually improve next year.
I have only lost two clients because of this, both who brought in their stuff two weeks before the end of January and just assumed I would do it (when they had ten months and couldn't be arsed!!!) - very worthwhile, considering it removes all pressure.
