The apparent disappointment over MTD and in particular HMRC communication is widespread. In addition, there is a growing question on the role of accountants in this new digital, largely mobile world - what will the future look like?
Some firms we've spoken with are alarmed, even worried, about these changes and how they should respond. That's one of the reasons we continue to run these popular MTD update webinars. Last year, over 10,000 firms registered and the feedback we received was highly responsive.
What was once considered ‘safe’, dare I say ‘bread and butter’ work, is now at risk (perhaps high risk) from the big 4. It’s been on the cards for a few years now, but recently they have intensified activity and are now deliberately targeting smaller fee paying clients, using repetitive, clever marketing. I am personally receiving multiple promotional emails each month from KPMG alone - and on the webinar, i'll show you them and others.
