HMRC launch online video series
A series of ten online videos have been launched by HMRC. The videos are aimed at helping small businesses understand their obligations and how to interact with HMRC.
The ten videos cover the following wide range of topics, setting up in business, income tax for the self employed, National Insurance, record keeping, employing other people, corporation tax, VAT, importing and exporting, business allowances, and the Construction Industry Scheme. The videos have been professionally produced and are fronted by a well known TV presenter.
There is also a separate video diary series entitled “The Start-up Diaries “which looks specifically at three people who are starting up in business and the issues they face. The first episode alongside an introduction explaining the series is available online.
There is also a guide available entitled "Giving your business the best start with tax". The videos and guide are available to download at http://www.businesslink.gov.uk/taxhelp
