In my first blog I highlighted our recent survey about agents’ use of HMRC’s agent toolkits. This has now finished and I’m pleased to say we had a really good response rate. We’re analysing the results and I’ll let you know what we find.
Today I’d like to highlight a different type of help HMRC provides. One of the things we’ve been looking at recently is how to give agents and businesses a more interactive way of using our guidance so we’ve produced a range of webinars (online seminars) covering topics that you might find useful to suggest to your clients.
They are suitable for smaller businesses and cover basic topics such as record keeping as well as specialist areas like the Construction Industry Scheme.
For example the “Self Employment and HMRC – what you need to know” webinar gives information for a new start up to find out how they can tell HMRC they are self-employed, what National Insurance they will have to pay, the benefits and importance of good record keeping and how to budget for their first tax bill.
Find out more about how to access and view webinars and find a list of the topics covered.
There are pre-recorded webinars that can be viewed at any time to suit you and we also produce live webinars that are available at pre-set times. These need to be booked in advance and have the benefit of enabling you to ask the webinar hosts questions and receive answers on the subject but you can also use our recorded webinars which can be viewed at a time to suit you.
Webinars are run on a continuous rolling programme – with dates for live sessions refreshed on a weekly basis/regularly. If you or your clients use one of our webinars we’d be delighted to have some feedback on how useful you found them and what we could do to improve them.
