Freelancers and micro business owners need more

by FreeAgent. The research found that 43% of
micro business owners do not know what the Making

will be for their firm. The research also revealed
that of the respondents who knew about the Making
Tax Digital reforms, 86% believe they have not
been provided with enough information about
the plans. However, 45% of business owners who
knew about the reforms said they believe the
plans would make running a business easier,

consumer protection enforcement guidance.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)
has published new guidance on its consumer protection
enforcement powers. 'Consumer Protection: Enforcement
Guidance' (CMA58) consolidates and replaces
'Consumer Protection: Guidance on the CMA's
Approach to Use of its Consumer Powers' (CMA7)
and 'Enforcement of Consumer Protection Legislation'
(OFT512). It explains the CMA's consumer powers
and functions, approach to compliance and enforcement,
and use of civil and criminal enforcement powers.
A summary of responses to the CMA consultation
on a draft version of CMA58, which closed in
July 2016, has also been released. The CMA is
advising business owners to familiarise themselves
with the new enforcement guidance to ensure
that they are compliant with consumer law.

will become a central feature of the Making
Tax Digital reforms, which were announced by
the Government in December 2015. To support
the changes, underlying tax rules will be simplified
and free software and advice will be provided
to small firms. HMRC is now consulting on how
this digital tax system will work, and one particular
consultation is aimed at the self-employed,
landlords, and all businesses that are not limited
companies. A separate consultation for companies
will be announced later this year.
is also proposing that unincorporated businesses
will be exempt from the obligation to keep digital
records and report regularly to HMRC if their
annual turnover is less than £10,000.
It is seeking views as to whether or not this
figure is an appropriate threshold and how the
exemption should operate. The deadline for submitting
responses to the consultation is 7 November

judgments fall due to rising court fees.
A fall in the number of debt rulings against
firms in England and Wales has been attributed
to the soaring cost of court fees, according
to the Registry Trust, which compiles statistics
about court judgments. In the first half of
2016 there were 42,091 County Court judgments
recorded against businesses, a fall of 19% year-on-year.
number of High Court judgments in the first
half of 2016 has also fallen by 50% in comparison
with the same period in 2015. Wide-ranging changes
to court fees were introduced in 2015 leading
to increases in some fees of up to 620%. Registry
Trust Chairman, Malcolm Hurlston, said that
solicitors who had reported the introduction
of significantly higher court fees as a reason
for the drop in the number of judgments were
correct. The Master of the Rolls, Lord Dyson,
has also indicated that the changes have deterred
smaller firms in particular from seeking justice.

million fund to attract international business
VisitBritain has launched a £4 million
programme to attract more international business
events to the UK. The four-year Event Support
Programme is open to Destination Management
Organisations (DMOs), as well as venues and
event organisers who are collaborating with
DMOs. Applicants can apply for a share of £1
million every year from 2016 to 2020. Funding
is available for projects that attract international
business events, grow the economic value of
events or create new international business
events. Organisations can also apply for non-financial
support in the form of endorsements, such as
letters of support and video messages from advocates
including government ministers and UKTI. The
programme is accepting applications and will
close on 31 March 2020. (EnterpriseQuest)

may abandon public sector due to IR35 reforms.
A survey by ContractorCalculator has revealed
that 80% of contractors would refuse to accept
public sector contracts in future if proposed
reforms to IR35 rules are introduced. Under
the proposals, liability for payment of the
correct taxes will be transferred from contractors
to the public sector organisations that engage
them. As a result, many contractors will be
obliged to become employees, and HMRC has estimated
that the change to IR35 rules will lead to a
£400 million increase in tax revenues.
However, according to the results of the survey,
forcing contractors to become employees could
instead cost HMRC £115 million. Also,
if contractors remain within IR35, they might
have to raise their fees by around 30% to allow
for the extra tax charges they would face, which
could increase the cost of government contracts
by more than £600 million.

a significant percentage of the public have
forgotten that old saying - 'never believe what
you read in the 'papers.' A view which couldn't
be more true in this day and age; to which could
be added - 'and what you see online.'

trash is to simply boycott ANY advertiser who
appears in the hate-preaching media. For as

users to key in a code that HMRC has sent to
their mobile phone or landline via an automated
message. The service is similar to that used
by many online banking services and is free

in winding-up petitions in 2015. http://economia.icaew.com/news/august-2016/hmrc-filed-13-per-cent-more-winding-up-petitions-last-year
HMRC filed almost 3,500 winding-up petitions
in 2015, an increase of 13% on 2014, according
to new research by Funding Options. Winding-up
petitions involve HMRC closing firms in order
to liquidate their assets to cover unpaid tax
bills. Funding Options believes the sharp increase
in the number of winding-up petitions filed
is due to the difficulties small business owners
have in managing their cash flow to pay tax
bills throughout the year. Conrad Ford, Chief
Executive at Funding Options, said: "A
petition to wind up a business is often one
of the last tools in HMRC's arsenal, but the
increasing numbers of petitions filed is evidence
that growing numbers of small businesses are
unable to resolve their issue with HMRC."
service to help compare business bank accounts.
HM Treasury has announced that the new and improved
Business Banking Insight (BBI) website has been
launched to help business owners identify which
bank is best for them. The BBI service compiles
the results of a survey of 10,000 business current
account customers who were asked to rate their
bank on a variety of factors, as well as indicate
how likely they would be to recommend their
business bank account. Business owners can use
the BBI service to assess how their bank and
the services it provides compares to its competitors.
The service also enables business owners to
search for the best business bank account according
to location, turnover, number of employees,
sector, and whether it trades domestically or

Companies House is encouraging firms to register
for its e-mail reminder service to help them
file their accounts and confirmation statement
(annual return) on time, and so avoid penalties.
According to Companies House analysis, paper
reminders (which will be phased out in future)
are less effective than e-mails in prompting
firms to file their documents. The e-mail reminder
service is free and quick, and messages can
be sent to up to four recipients including an
agent such as a company's accountant. Documents
can also be filed directly from a link within
the message, enabling an immediate response
to be made to a reminder.
