HERE TO HELP
Meet Dexter the Digital Tax Advisor. The cartoon character has been introduced by accounting software platform Xero to help small businesses and their accountants prepare for new Making Tax Digital (MTD) VAT rules. Its research shows that one in four SMBs are still unaware that from April 2019, every VAT-registered business above the £85k threshold will be required by law to go digital and file their tax through MTD compatible cloud software. The Dexter the Digital Tax Advisor series of short animated films has been created by the Oscar nominated creative duo of Alison Snowden and David Fine and will be released in the lead-up to the MTD for VAT kick-off date.
