Small businesses should make use of a new set of guides uploaded to video sharing website YouTube in order to get straight on tax issues, Parcel2Go has said.
The parcel delivery specialist has urged SMEs to check out the suite of new videos produced by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) if they feel they need help understanding complicated tax matters, whether they’re trading on a domestic or international level. Courier Services from Parcel2Go.com are used by companies and individuals to ship more than two million parcels to addresses in the UK and around the world each year.
HMRC first began imparting advice via online videos in 2011, but the latest set of films offer more focused advice to businesses. A total of 21 videos have been posted on HMRC’s YouTube page in recent weeks, covering a huge range of topics including payroll systems, PAYE, VAT, corporation tax, registering as an employer and record keeping.
One video offers an introduction to the issues that small businesses can face when trading with other countries via the internet – something that Parcel2Go helps an increasingly large number of small companies to do using Parcel2Go international parcel delivery services.
Data from HMRC shows that around four out of five new businesses already register online for VAT. Around 850,000 taxpayers missed this year’s January 31 deadline for filing their self-assessment tax returns, and were hit with a £100 fine as a result.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: “Tax issues are seen by many small business owners as one of the most daunting parts of the job, and it’s easy to see why.
“The importance of getting your tax straight can’t be underestimated though and we’re calling on firms to make use of these new videos in order to get up to speed on any areas of the tax system they’re unclear about.”
