Wasn't this also the early promise of iXRBL that it would be extended to give researchers and investors "instant" comparability across performance indicators such as those quoted in the article? In these days of constant "AI" and "Big data" buzzwords, am surprised that we do not hear more about this?

Good article thanks.
Under the first example where a £50k loan is made to a Director and is recorded as Dr DCA £44,923. What are the accounting entries please when on 31 Dec 2020 the Director repays £50k?

May have been "low key" from the sellers' point of view. But have been going for many years (6? I lost count) and can truly say that this was the best year so far for speakers. For the first time I had set in my calendar a full day's program of theatres and still turned some down. From the motivational speaker kicking off first thing, data visualisation, blockchain, ICO's and practice success stories from Oz, it was a real high quality line up this time. And not just speaking about the next big compliance thing (RTI, MTD, GDPR etc) as in prior years. Well done Zoe and team and a big thank you from me! The only thing now is to work out a way of de-stressing the leaping up from chair in an overrunning Q&A session, to have time to transfer and find a seat in the next small theatre in program line.

A very good guide but it still does not seem clear to me what happens when an employer submits invalid data on employees especially regarding casual workers i.e. is the employer obligated to go back and submit corrected information and what are the potential penalties if they do not.
The practical aspects apply particularly to casual workers. A farm for example can hire a casual worker for one day for cash. The farm manager collects the employee details and using the HMRC relaxations, the office / payroll bureau submits those details later either on the earlier of the next regular return or 7 days after payment (it seems for 2013/14 that the details can be submitted up to 19 May 2014 without penalty).
But on submission it is found that a false name and/or incorrect/not-valid NINO has been given. Meanwhile the casual worker has long since disappeared into the sunset..........
Can anyone help?

Accounts staff working from home
"Agree an amount for a particular task"
I am also a schizophrenic being both a sufferer of the last century lord and master disease and also a horizon scanner for seeing where the trend for "employing" accounting staff is heading.
Is there any consensus on what percentage of the Accounts fee is being agreed with work-at-home/subcontracor staff? Also, does there tend to be a financial penalty built in for if the draft accounts are not delivered by a set deadline day?

Missing line on the graph
The graph is missing the line of the number of unqualified accountants acting as "sole practitioner" bookkeepers.
Their numbers have probably increased by at least 7,000 between 1998 and 2008

Left hand and right hand
The left hand of the government wants us to be interested in pensions and providing for our own retirement
I have never before experienced such interest (at least 1 enquiry per week)in pensions as when everyone thought they can buy a property and/or a classic car via a pension scheme
If I read the article correctly, the right hand of the government has taken all such interest away
Well done imbeciles!

Blue Sky thinking
Use public sector to lead pvte sector into 7-day opening. Employees are required to work any 35/49 hours - alleviates rush hour and the equally problematic weekend shopping traffic.
Free of charge 'yellow' school bus based gas/hydrogen fuel cell technology. Use compulsory.
GENUINE investment in train and (fuel cell) bus services, joined up thinking to deliver door to door service as the home to regular-workplace transport mode of choice.
Let the roads gridlock as encourages public transport use - for every 1 person with real car-use case (eg sales rep) there on average are 3 people with weaker reasons.
Make air-fare taxes comparable with road + rail fare taxes.
Force Prescott to lead by example by taking that Prius and walking from hotel to party conference.

Public Sector Votes
It would be interesting to know what % of the 26% of AWEB labour voters work in the public sector (my guess is quite high)
