Last minute self assessment issues, latest on Making Tax Digital and challenges facing the tax profession this year: TAXtalk January 2019

The January edition of TAXtalk will be available at 12:30 on Wednesday 16 January. Anita Monteith will be joined by Caroline Miskin, Tax Practitioner Manager and Frank Haskew, Head of the Tax Faculty for some count down discussions. TAXtalk is free to watch and each broadcast is 30 minutes.

By mid January, we will have just 2 weeks before the self assessment deadline and just over 11 weeks before Making Tax Digital for VAT begins and, of course, Brexit.

The team will be giving their thoughts on prioritisation, some tips for navigating the challenges, and avoiding panic.

Earlier editions of TAXtalk are still available to watch for free.

The December 2018 edition of TAXtalk, featured Anita Monteith, Azhar Baig, ICAEW Head of Technical Advisory and Enquiry Services and Peter Bickley, Technical Manager, ICAEW Tax Faculty.
