Orpington prize winner donates cheque to RNLI

Kathy Cordery from Orpington, who was the winner of a competition held by top-20 accountancy firm, Wilkins Kennedy, has donated her prize money to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). Wilkins Kennedy ran a competition from 1st – 24th December, inviting entrants to guess the number of tax returns they think will be filed on Christmas Day 2015.

Prompt Payment Discounts

From 1st April 2015 VAT law in connection with prompt payment discounts is changing. The changes will not only affect those businesses that offer prompt payment discounts to customers but also those who receive invoices offering a prompt payment discount.

The current VAT legislation is relatively simple with the amount of VAT declared on the invoice as well as the amount of VAT the recipient of the supply can treat as input tax being calculated on the discounted price.
