HMRC begins online advice seminars

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has begun a series of online presentations or webinars giving help on tax to businesses and the self employed.

The presentations last approximately 30 minutes. There are two types – live webinars on set dates, which allow a further 30 minutes for live Q&A; and pre-recorded webinars, available round the clock.

The webinars will cover many different topics, including:

  • Business expenses and capital allowances
  • First steps as an employer
  • The Construction Industry Scheme
  • Self Assessment online
  • Limited companies, an overview
  • How VAT works

The webinars allow businesses and the self-employed to participate in the live seminars and ask questions. These will then be available on the HMRC website to view. The pre-recorded series of webinars will be accessible to watch at any time of day or night.
