Make the Switch

Changing your accountant is simple. You can switch accountants at any time and there are no tax implications. Our team will help guide you through the process.


Making Tax Digital (MTD) VAT has changed the way UK businesses, accountants and bookkeepers report VAT. MTD VAT is an HMRC initiative designed to make sure the UK tax system is effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers. It is mandatory for VAT-registered businesses above the threshold to keep records and submit VAT returns digitally using HMRC-recognised software like Xero and Sage.

Speak to a qualified adviser at Joseph Lawrence to find out what this means for you and learn how we can help you become MTD-compliant whether you’re a new start-up exploring digital software options or a long standing business looking to transition to fully digital bookkeeping systems.

The prize for MTD is about much more than just ensuring everyone pays the right amount of tax. It’s about placing UK businesses on a more digital footing, preparing them for the future and giving them the tools they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive and international marketplace. Is your business ready to move on? Talk to us about using popular software brands Xero and Sage and let us help you seize the opportunities of digital technology.
