Making tax digital means that from 1 April 2019 VAT registered businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold of £85,000 will need to maintain digital records, and submit their VAT return information to HMRC via digital software.

If you are preparing your VAT return manually or using a computerised spreadsheet you will have to change to submitting your VAT return digitally to comply with Making Tax Digital legislation. Businesses submitting their VAT returns via recognised accounting software will have to verify if their version of the product will comply with this new requirement.

We work closely with digital software providers such as Xero and SAGE and we will be able to assist you to put in place accounting software that is suitable for your business, and that will enable you to meet the requirements of Making Tax Digital.

Get in touch with us for a free consultation if you would like to discuss Making Tax Digital in more detail and what it means for your business.

“Defining dyslexia is simple – difficulty in reading, writing and spelling correctly, according to the dictionary – but it is a complex condition that is likely to have a lifelong impact on anyone that it affects. For thousands of children diagnosed with dyslexia, the innovative work of Xavier Educational Software, based in the School of Pyschology at the University of Wales, Bangor, has played an important part in their education.”

“Everything I want from an accountant”: that’s the verdict on Gareth Hughes & Co from Phil Arundale. Phil is the latest of several generations of his family to supply local shoppers with fruit, vegetables, fresh fish and game at the long-established Colwyn Bay business Arundales. Arundales was founded in 1887 and originally started life selling fish and game, adding fruit and vegetables some 50 years ago. Today Phil and wife Wende have branched out to offer fresh produce boxes, with a focus on seasonal availability, and a delivery service for customer orders.”

“When you’re running a business, working with people you like and respect makes life much easier. That applies as much to professional advisers as to immediate colleagues. Martin Bastable, who has run Bastable Upholstery Llandudno Limited in Colwyn Bay since 2005, is no exception to that rule. He decided very quickly that Gareth Hughes was someone he could work with successfully – “within the first 30 seconds of meeting him”, he says – and several years later, that first impression has been proved right. Martin says: “He’s effortlessly professional. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.”.”
