HMRC’s regular Talking Points webinars provide information, guidance and tips to help you understand tax issues. Forthcoming ones include:
Expenses & benefits – Trivial benefits: This webinar is part of a series covering expenses and benefits. It has been designed to provide an overview of trivial benefits including what is a trivial benefit, what conditions have to be met to be exempt from reporting to HMRC and examples of trivial benefit scenarios. Subject matter experts will be available to answer questions.
Expenses & Benefits – Social functions & parties: This webinar covers the tax and National Insurance treatment of providing employees with annual social functions such as a Christmas party or summer barbecue. It does NOT cover reimbursing staff for the costs of entertaining or providing hospitality to customers or clients.
Making Tax Digital – your Agent Services Account: This webinar will provide the latest information, including the new Agent Services Account and signing clients up to Making Tax Digital.
If you have any questions for HMRC subject experts send them to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the webinars, including the title of the meeting in the ‘Subject’ line of your email.
These interactive webinars will be run on the ‘GoToWebinar’ platform. The organiser will run through how to ask questions on the day.
Feedback received from a recent Talking Points webinar indicates that many agents would recommend them to colleagues.
