Cowgills and CHW, in conjunction with the cyber security team at Barclays Bank, held a Making Tax Digital (MTD) breakfast seminar at the University of Bolton Stadium last week.

The event was well attended by over 70 delegates from local companies who came along to find out what impact the new regulations will have on businesses when they come into force this April.

CHW director, Ian Orgill, addressed the delegates to explain how the Making Tax Digital regulations will impact business and explained some of the leading software and solutions which are available.

Commenting on the event Ian said: “Making Tax Digital comes into effect on 1st April and all businesses will have to assess their compliance with the new regulations otherwise they will face the risk of penalties and fines from HMRC. It was great to see so many local companies turn out for the event.

We are grateful to Barclays who joined us to explain how companies can also keep their business safe in the cyber world as they move onto digital platforms to comply with the new laws.”
