HMRC have asked us to draw attention to their following notice about forthcoming Talking Points meetings
"HMRC's regular Talking Points provide ongoing information, guidance and tips to help you to understand tax issues.
We have more Talking Points webinars coming up. There are a limited number of spaces, so save your place now.
Expenses & Benefits – Social functions & parties
This webinar covers the tax and National Insurance treatment of providing employees with annual social functions such as a Christmas party or summer barbecue. It does NOT cover reimbursing staff for the costs of entertaining or providing hospitality to customers or clients.
Making Tax Digital – your Agent Services Account
This webinar will provide the latest information, including the new Agent Services Account and signing clients up to Making Tax Digital.
PAYE Expenses & Benefits (P11D)
This webinar has been designed to provide examples of the most common entries on the end-of-year expenses and benefits return. HMRC subject matter experts will be online during the webinar to take your questions.
An overview of the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)
This webinar will focus on the SEIS application procedure for companies, key aspects of legislation to be aware of, how investors claim SEIS relief and common errors made by companies and investors.
During the webinar we will focus on basis periods. In particular we look at the different rules that apply to commencement years, the effect on a basis period when there is a change of accounting date and overlapping periods. We also look at some pointers when dealing with a change from sole trader to partnership and vice versa.
If you have any questions for our subject experts, please send them to team.agentengagement [at] hmrc.gsi.gov.uk prior to the webinars, including the title of the meeting in the ‘Subject’ line of your email.
These interactive webinars will be run on the ‘GoToWebinar’ platform. The organiser will run through how to ask questions on the day.
Feedback received from a recent Talking Points webinar indicates that many agents would recommend them to colleagues.
