• Simple Guides to Making tax Digital, Cloud Accounting, Data, and APIs
From April 2019 the government legislation of Making Tax Digital for Business systems will be mandatory to meet VAT obligations.
This means that any entity, whether a sole trader, partnership, company, charity or landlord that makes VAT-able supplies above the VAT threshold (currently £85,000 turnover), will be required to submit their VAT return using functional compatible software that is compliant with HMRC’s new MTD reporting system.
The government’s main objective of MTD is to plug the £3.5bn gap that is generated by mistakes made on VAT returns whilst also saving time for both HMRC & taxpayers.
This informative talk held on January 25 from 9.15am to 12.15pm will unfog the legislation for business owners.
The event will take place at South Green Park Enterprise Centre in Dereham.
• Our Region: Post Brexit
The UK’s impending departure from the EU will bring change for businesses of every size and sector. In partnership with both Great Yarmouth Borough Council and New Anglia LEP, the chamber will be hosting a free Post-Brexit Business Workshop.
It will be held in the Great Yarmouth Town Hall on January 31 from 3pm to 5pm.
The event will also look at how the business community can ‘own’ the Industrial Strategy and improve their productivity whilst taking advantage of opportunities in the post-Brexit landscape.
