Just a reminder that HMRC are implementing Making Tax Digital (MTD) from April 2019. This means that people who keep records on paper or spreadsheets and submit their VAT return manually will no longer be able to do so. From April 2019 all Vat Returns will have to be submitted electronically through a certified accounts package. There are plenty of packages available, these include our own software (FCG Accounting Software), Xero, Quickbooks, Farmplan and many more.
We, at The Farm Consultancy Group provide an on farm secretarial service as well as a bureau accounts service using the FCG Accounting Software and other software packages. Our secretarial services are prompt and accurate but will be up to date with the latest HMRC requirements. Moving from paper to a software package will be an opportunity to access more detailed reports and analysis about your business to make up to date management decisions based on fact not gut feel.
If you have any questions, either about the services we provide or need help choosing which software is right for you and how to set the software up, please contact Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org or your local FCG Office.
