In case you missed them…

Last week Anita Monteith and Sarah Ghaffari presented a round-up of the latest employment and business tax matters for ICAEW’s Business and Management Faculty. In this one hour talk they touched on Making Tax Digital, the new trivial benefits rule, reforms to the rules for carried-forward losses and more. A recording of the webinar is now available and can be accessed free of charge by Tax Faculty members.

Frank Haskew and Caroline Miskin presented a webinar on HMRC’s Agent Strategy and Services on 5 September and a recording is available. This webinar included an update on the rollout of HMRC digital services, including for Making Tax Digital for Business, to tax agents and also covered the latest developments on the HMRC initiative to collect data which will give it a comprehensive and consistent view of each agent's interactions with HMRC and allow it to segment the agent population and tailor its approach.
