Making Tax Digital is a key part of the governments plans to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs. The initiative sets out a vision for the ‘end of the tax return’ and a transformed tax system by 2020.

Protech has undertaken the changes to the sales ledger functionality ensure ProConnect complies with the new regulations. The Chartered Management Institute have been the first client to take advantage of the software release.

The new functionality within ProConnect will enable our clients to not only comply with the initiative but also reduce time required to submit their tax returns.”
