Accountancy Age today launches its 2000 Awards for Excellence - with many categories open to IT providers. Will droves of IT experts be leaving the country as the notorious IR35 tax laws take effect this morning?

A special feature on IR35 will appear on AccountancyAge.com later today. A new story today reveals that the Treasury changed the numbering system on the Budget press releases as a PR sop apparently to prevent any of the new releases giving rise to the sort of notoriety that IR35 has earned.

Meanwhile, there are fears that some accountants may not be able to advise their clients on the IR35 measures as the Inland Revenue has been posting most of the detailed information about it on the internet – and a large number of accountants still don’t have desktop access to the worldwide web.

Accountancy Age is calling for entries for the 2000 Awards for Excellence. More details about the awards and how to enter can be found in our special awards mini-site at www.accountancyage.com/Awards, which can be accessed via the AccountancyAge.com home page. The awards recogniseexcellence across the industry.

IT problems yesterday caused chaos at the Stock Exchange, which was brought to a standstill on the last day of the tax year, threatening those who had left their tax planning to the last minute with unexpected bills from the Inland Revenue. Luckily, the problems were resolved at the last minute.
