I'm inclined to agree with your quiet Budget assessment.
The other factor I didn't have space to include in my piece was Parliamentary time. With bucketloads of Brexit legislation to get through in the next year and a half, any major tax/business legislation overhaul just isn't going to get the necessary oversight.
However, I do have a sneaking suspicious Mr Hammond has a surprise or two waiting for us, particularly as very little has leaked out of Downing Street.
The timing of the OTS VAT report was convenient as a quasi-policy kite to test public reaction - what the government has made of the feedback will be interesting.
Or perhaps it'll finally be the year for income tax and NI?? Or maybe not...
Hi NH, thanks for your comment.
This one isn't really about causing offence, it's just that we literally can't include it in articles, comments or posts without it being picked up and replaced with [***] by our profanity filter, so it would look a bit bizarre.
I tried to style it out with a literary gag, but unfortunately that seems to have fallen a bit flat...
Thanks for flagging this - can you see the video now?
Many happy returns Glenn.
Sorry to hear about your Dad, hope he's on the mend.
Glad business is going well and thanks for the blog :-)
It's an interesting point you make about the mundane tasks in practice and industry.
The AWeb inboxes are always buzzing with news about the latest labour-saving software tools available, and (depending on the workplace) progress has been made in getting rid of the worst of the donkey work, but there's still plenty around.
Thanks for posting and keep them coming :-)
Thanks for the comment. Can you see the video now? It should be at the bottom of the page.
Ha ha! Thanks FirstTab - I'm glad you enjoyed the first half of the blog :-D
*edit* On your blog you've discussed plenty of aspects of building your practice - is there one particular measure or benchmark you look at more than any other (that you're comfortable sharing?)
I can report there were no outbreaks of Dad dancing from the AWeb team (this time).
Glenn, great to see you as always :-)
Thanks for that Tim, that grammatical snafu has been updated now.
Fear not Mark - there is plenty of non-audit AI content in the pipeline.
