Even accountancy is not safe from the complete chaos over in Westminster. The Loan Charge, MTD and Big Four audits have all felt the wrath of MPs this week.
On this week’s pod the AccountingWEB team will be asking: is the curtain coming down on HMRC’s loan charge, or will the pantomime continue for another season? Also, after a group of MPs recommended a Big Four audit break-up, is anything actually going to happen?
Also, John Stokdyk gives us the latest from the House of Lords’ Making Tax Digital debate, which – you guessed it – erupted into yet another Brexit debate.
Also joining host Tom Herbert at AccountingWEB towers this week is practice editor Richard Hattersley, who runs us through the institutes' latest disciplinary proceedings. Tom also dials in Rebecca Cave to talk all things loan charge, and business editor Francois Badenhorst beams in from the big NetSuite shindig over in Nevada and talks NetSuite, American accountancy conferences and Shaquille O'Neal.
