ACCA and HMRC talk tax
by Leonie Wilson


ACCA and HMRC have joined forces to produce a vodcast, a video version of a podcast, introducing practitioners to the new self-assessment toolkits from HMRC.

The vodcast Sharing of information: new ways of working is presented by Glenn Collins, ACCA UK's head of advisory services and Brian Redford, deputy director in HMRC who is responsible for working with agents and employers.

The vodcast gives an overview of HMRC's new self-assessment toolkits, the timetable for their introduction and highlights some of the benefits to clients, agents and HMRC.

The toolkits are designed to:

  • increase your understanding of risk and highlight areas where errors occur
  • help to reduce the need for HMRC to carry out compliance checks
  • link you directly to the latest guidance notes so that you can be confident that your work is focused to the high tax error areas
  • help demonstrate to your clients that you have taken reasonable care.

The vodcast, accompanying PowerPoint presentation and full transcript are available on ACCA's website.
