“Making Tax Digital” Business Planning Seminar Coming to Loughry Campus

A number of Farm Family Key Skills (FFKS) seminars focusing on areas impacting on farm businesses have been organised by CAFRE in partnership with Rural Support. These will be delivered throughout Northern Ireland over the coming months starting on Tuesday 13 November at Loughry Campus, CAFRE. Seminars will be delivered by industry professionals from local Accountancy firm PKF/FPM.

Topics covered include an overview and awareness of the new HMRC “Making Tax Digital” system including issues surrounding the submission of records, choice of appropriate software and the cost implications for the farm business.

Jude McCann of Rural Support pictured discussing the importance of “Making Tax Digital” Business Planning seminars with Callum McAleese from Limavady and Jayne Kyle from Coleraine . Also included is John Hamilton of CAFRE who in partnership are offering a number of “Making Tax Digital” seminars throughout Northern Ireland starting in November 2018.

Callum McAleese from Limavady commented “I attended the Farm Family Key Skills taxation and succession planning seminar last autumn and found it very useful.   I am hoping to attend one of the “Making Tax Digital” seminars coming up soon. It is a great opportunity to find out what it is all about as the change comes into effect in April 2019. Therefore I would encourage farmers, farm family members and farm employees to attend one of these seminars where they will get a chance to hear from industry professionals on key issues related to the new “Making Tax Digital system”.”
