Xero Roadshow

Author, Stuart Moody (Tait Walker) I've just returned from the Xero roadshow in Leeds and I'm totally convinced this is the right product for so many of our clients. I've never been anywhere where I felt so much positivity in one room, clear testimony to the company's recent accolade as the "Worlds most innovative growth company" awarded by Forbes. The story of Xero is one of hyper growth and the company are now attracting high calibre internal staff who can obviously see the potential of cloud based accounting packages. Currently there are 3800 certified Xero users of which I am but one. Clearly the growth potential of Xero who now have 50k customers in the SME market is a mere fraction of the UK's total SME market place which I am led to believe stands at a staggering  5 million entities. What sets this company apart from the others is that we, as business partners are treated as part of the innovation cycle. We are listened to at just such events as today's roadshow and … [Read More...]

VAT Alert – NOVA is here to stay!

Introduced in April last year the Notification of Vehicle Arrivals (NOVA) on line system was introduced to tackle VAT evasion on vehicles brought permanently into the UK. Whilst HMRC had good intentions the measures have proved onerous and the penalty regime is draconian, a number of vehicle importers have innocently fallen foul of the measures. The problem lies in what is caught by the term “vehicle” and a number of businesses have overlooked NOVA in the belief that their product will not require a DVLA registration. The reporting requirements are a lot broader than first envisaged. Tait Walker has successfully mediated between HMRC and a “sit on lawnmower” importer who had a potential six figure penalty withdrawn. Not only were we successful in having the penalty quashed but we also agreed that the historical catch up exercise could wait until the “bulk notification” process had been finalised. The link to these spreadsheets and the “vehicle” categories can be found … [Read More...]
