Is this just MTD for VAT, or MTD for other taxes too?

I can type 8 numbers onto a spreadsheet and upload that as MTDfV.
Surely no-one really thinks MTDfV in it's current form is anything other than a waste of everyone's time?

Is example 2.1 the nearest thing for an employee on a monthly salary?
None of the examples ever seem to deal with this, which is of course not that uncommon, surely..

February is the benchmark for salary.
No hours are being 'worked' on furlough, so NMW does not apply.

Interesting column - however, outside of practice, emails can often BE the work (ie invoices, statements, purchase orders etc). They have replaced the sacks of prime documents that used to arrive in the post.
SME businesses are not generally large enough to use a workflow type program instead.

Wasn't it Huntingdon Life Sciences that needed to be audited by the national audit office?

So, every time an employee takes a day off, (say in the middle of a month I am about to pay) I have to have a mechanism for showing their previous 13 weeks pay?
What about if they take a day off in the first and third weeks of the month?
I get the idea, but just no idea how the mechanics of it could be done?

On the face of it, sounds good, and of course a lot of the institutes love the idea that accountants don't really do any of the numbers.
In reality, though, how many finance folk don't fill the majority of their time doing the numbers?
Most businesses have sales as the limiting factor, and working capital following close behind.
Is there demand from operational people to get this 'business partnering'?
My previous employer used the title, but if I recall most of our work was mechanistic.
