Paul Lewis on Money Box said that it was going to be based on February pay, but he did not mention anything about commission.

The problem is that if you read their Ts and Cs, they accept no responsiblity if the backup fails or is lost.
At least with Sage Instant, you could keep your own backup in several places so that if one was lost, you had other copies.
I don't understand why they can't just let us do our own backup if we want.
Thanks, I will look at backupmybooks.

I am an accountant for a small company. We have just started using Xero after using Sage Instant for decades.
The main issue I have with Xero is that there is no easy way to back up all our data like there was with Sage.
What do other Xero users do about this?

I use Moneysoft and had this a couple of years ago (HMRC said I had underpaid PAYE/NI). I rang HMRC and they agreed to look into it. I have not heard from them since so I assume they have written it off.

Yes, we had a VAT inspection at a previous company and they told us that we had issue deposit invoices for all deposits.
HMRC would be interested to know that they are not paying over the VAT when they receive the deposit.

Of course not.
You need to ask for a VAT invoice, which they must provide on request.
Your till receipt is not necessarily a "less detailed tax invoice", though some are.
However, I've never had a VAT officer query VAT claims on supermarket till receipts, largely because the VAT content is a few quid at most.
Thanks. I've asked the employees to ask for a VAT receipt at M&S and they said that they were told that they couldn't have one.

So are supermarkets exempt from having to indicate which of their products have VAT or not?
I know some have an asterisk against the item to show that it is vatable, but others such as M&S just have a VAT number and no indication. Does that mean that I can claim VAT on everything on the receipt?

I get my employees to text the pw to me so I have a record.

I would export the VAT return to Excel and use Vitaltax as it is free:
and then see if you can grant it authority. I don't know if you will be able to if you have already granted authority but it is worth trying as it is free. Someone said that their support is good so they might be able to help.
