Established in 1991, Christchurch based MAAP Accountants deliver a complete book-keeping, accounting and tax service for small to medium sized businesses in Bournemouth, Ringwood and the New Forest region.
The introduction of intelligent software and the relaxation of reporting standards for small businesses have made it much easier, and certainly less expensive, for everyone concerned to produce year end accounts and tax returns.
The HMRC recently took the next step in their Making Tax Digital (MTD) campaign. VAT-registered businesses must now submit detailed transactional records that support the figures they report in their VAT return. Although there is the usual rhetoric about the reporting shift the HMRC are driving forward, we prefer to focus on helping our clients minimise the time they have to spend on creating the records they need to submit. Changing to the new reporting regime has proven to be a non-event for most of our clients, which proves the point that planning and preparation are the key to an easy life.
The HMRC continue their campaign to eliminate disguised employment even though they have suffered some setbacks in court going against them over the taxation of personal service companies. Another area of employment status conflict exists in the construction sector. The HMRC´s hallmarks that define a self-employed worker´s status for tax purposes, directly conflict with the definition of a labour-only worker for essential insurance cover. Engagers run the risk of falling foul of at least one side of that conflict because they cannot satisfy both at the same time.
