HMRC update on improving services for small business

10 December 2014

 

HMRC have issued a report summarising their efforts to improve services for small businesses.

They have structured the document around a number of themes, in the hope that businesses will dip in and out of the sections that most interest them, including:

· delivering new and enhanced digital services: for example the new digital service, Your Tax Account, allowing businesses to manage their services via a personalised homepage

· delivering better help, support and guidance: setting out what is available to small businesses, such as live seminars, mobile apps and payment support

· supporting business to grow: information on the new Employment Allowance of £2,000, as well as other tax reliefs and incentives

· modernising our processes and services: how we’re transforming our services to be simpler and more straightforward.
