AAnswers Podcast: Breakfast or Brexit?

AAnswers Podcast: Breakfast or Brexit?

With our new podcast series, AAnswers, we respond to the big questions of our time, future-proofing the knowledge you need to succeed moving forwards in the accounting industry. We are joined by our first special guest, AAT's tax policy expert, Brian Palmer.

For our third AAnswers podcast, we have finally decided to focus specifically on two of the biggest changes that will be undertaken in 2019: Brexit and Making Tax Digital (MTD).

If you haven’t already, have a listen to our AAnswers podcasts on the Budget and financial scandals.
