Tax help is at hand for businesses during April when HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) continues its programme of free workshops.
The workshops are going to be held in Northern Ireland. They are aimed at employers, sole traders and those in partnerships. They will range from how to complete the Self Assessment return to how to pay Statutory Sick Pay.
Janet Timmins, Business Advice Team Manager for HMRC, says: “These are challenging times but our attitude has always been to assist businesses during good times and bad. These events allow us to bring our advice directly to the local business community and offer practical assistance where it is needed.
“It’s inevitable that some people will find tax issues daunting, especially those who are just setting out. HMRC runs a number of schemes to make tax as hassle free as possible, and at these events we will be happy to talk about our services, including on-line filing which is convenient and easy to use.”
