With the objective to bring individual and business tax systems onto a digital setup, the Chancellor proposed a Digital Tax System in March 2015, which would make it easier for individuals and businesses to register, pay, update and resolve all their tax issues using an online platform. This Digital Tax plan needs your information at least quarterly. Whenever you log in, you will be able to get up-to-date tax calculation. It is estimated that, by 2020, more businesses will be moving towards digital records than ever before. Businesses will be extra conscious to plan on their payables with this system in place, but this slightly controversial system will ease many HMRC services on tax issues. At Shrikish & Co. our team understands the complexity this new digital taxation system might bring along. With our tested cloud storage tools and servers, we are ready to help businesses safely migrate to the Digital Tax platform and provide comprehensive services to manage your business tax dashboard for you.
