ICAEW’s Small Practitioners Community reimagines Tax Talk
17 February: Respected tax expert Rebecca Benneyworth has joined forces with ICAEW’s Small Practitioners Community to host regular live discussions of the key issues in tax, with the support of the Tax Faculty.
On 10 February, Rebecca Benneyworth was joined by Anita Monteith, Technical Lead and Senior Policy Adviser in the Tax Faculty, for the first broadcast of the Small Practitioners Community’s Tax Talk.
The session covered Making Tax Digital, off-payroll working, what to expect in the Budget on 3 March and a recent report from the Institute of Fiscal Studies which touched on incorporation.
The informal 45-minute discussions aim to help small practitioners stay up to date with the latest developments in tax policy with Benneyworth and the Tax Faculty drawing on their experience and insight to provide practical context.
A key part of the format is that audience questions help to drive the discussion. In the first broadcast the audience was looking for support on the impact of coronavirus with questions on the implications for normally UK resident employees who have spent long periods of time working overseas due to the pandemic and questions on the VAT deferment.
There are three further Tax Talks planned this year, with the next session set to take place on 12 May, and in the meantime the community is has opened the recording of its first Tax Talk to everyone.
The future Tax Talks and their recordings will be freely available to members of the Small Practitioners Community, which is itself free to join. For further practical help and support on tax, find out more about joining the Tax Faculty.
