Description

Making Tax Digital Update with HMRC


Hear directly from HMRC!


This joint event from Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise and ICAEW Lancashire and South Lakeland will be looking at the topic ‘Making Tax Digital’, almost 6 months on from when the transformation started.


Our HMRC speaker will walk through the MTD changes that have taken place and the common queries to date. They will cover the changes being introduced in 2020, providing context in terms of what HMRC want MTD to deliver in the longer term and how the legislation might evolve.


This HMRC presentation on MTD will cover what businesses need to do to comply with any Making Tax Digital updates, offering face to face advice from the experts themselves. There will, of course, be plenty of time for Q&As.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Unfortunately, there is no reserved parking available on site. Please see the university Pay & Display car parks (shown as no. 12 and no. 24) and the public car parking options (shown in grey) on the UCLan campus map here.

The cost of our Pay and Display car parks is £1 per hour up to four hours and once £4 has been paid, the ticket will be valid for all day use. https://www.uclan.ac.uk/students/campus-life/car_parking.php

The former “B&Q” superstore on North Road which is nearby, is currently a Pay & Display car park with a charge of £1.90 per 12 hours or 90p for 3 hours, located at PR1 1NR.

There are a number of non-University car parks available across Preston. Information on location and current charges can be found at : http://www.preston.gov.uk/yourservices/transport-and-parking/parking/city-centre-car-parks/
