Brilliant, and spot on :)

It's part of their Making Tax Digital initiative and Sage is running an MTD campaign to get subscribers to upgrade, although if your are paying them £ 900 a year I would very much hope this module is already included in your package !

Last year it took 3 months of haggling and me threatening to switch to another accounting package before they discounted my package to a more reasonable cost.

I would have more confidence in retaining the Union through a No Deal Brexit if we were prepared for No Deal.

Raab needs to get on with publishing the rest of the No Deal plans.

HMRC plan to have all VAT reported digitally using proprietary software by next April is my current bugbear.

I received a call from Sage last week to say that the software they sold me last year is not compatible with the new VAT reporting requirements from HMRC and that I would have to upgrade my software at 10x the cost I paid last year.

I do not understand why we cannot continue to use the HMRC portal to input our VAT returns, as that is a digital format.
I do not understand why HMRC are insisting that this is implemented at the same time as Brexit.
I do not understand why HMRC are insisting on a restricted number of software suppliers, thereby creating a closed market for accountancy software.

Kelly Tolhurst, Minister for Small Business, said that small businesses must prepare for the changes and she told them not to expect a further hiatus, despite the risk that they could be dealing with a “no-deal” Brexit at the same time.

LGBT+ Conservatives yesterday published a news post "The importance of reforming the Gender Recognition Act and trans rights" https://www.lgbtconservatives.org.uk/news/importa...

I've written to them expressing my disappointment that they are endorsing Stonewall's recommendation for self-determination without first surveying LGBT+ Conservative members.

I also commented that I have not met any Conservative who supports gender self-determination and there have been a number of articles on this website critical of the policies advocated by Stonewall in this regard.

For IDS plan to work it needed adequate funding to get it off the ground and running. Osbourne was wrong to remove that funding and undermines the whole principle of ensuring that it always pays to work.

Hammond needs to reverse Osbourne's cuts and task McVey with bringing IDS plan to fruition. We will all reap the benefits if she is successful.

Hub and spoke is way more efficient than direct links.

There is an argument to say that road pricing does not accurately reflect the environmental cost of the road, but that is a transport economics issue rather than a JIT system issue.

Indeed, although not knowing what we are going to be making next month is stressful.

Manufacturing is much more competitive now that it was before JIT and the beneficiary has been the consumer.

It's been a standard part of every CoE service for as long as I can remember that we pray for our leaders, may god grant them wisdom.

We have never prayed for the EU.
