AccountancyAge.com weekly tax focus: Tax

AccountancyAge.com last week broke news that the Revenue was churning out penalty notices to people who had submitted their tax returns on time. Two new online services have been launched; a Web Directory and Software Buyers Guides.

The phantom penalty notices were caused by a technical glitch at local tax offices, according to the Revenue. Some practitioners are calling for compensation or at least an apology.

This story, uncovered by AccountancyAge.com last Wednesday, was followed up by national newspapers and the BBC.

The taxman’s problems with technology may increase scepticism among practitioners and tax managers about ambitious plans to allow people to pay tax online by the end of the year, although the Revenue should be applauded for undertaking such a project.

AccountancyAge.com has now launched its Web Directory, which provides links to hundreds of useful websites. It can be accessed by clicking on the button under the ‘Essentials’ button on the left-hand side of page.

The new Software Buyers Guides provide a searchable service for financial professionals to find services, products and suppliers that suit their needs.

It can be accessed by clicking on the yellow icon at the top of AccountancyAge.com pages.
