We Take Your Data Security Seriously.

We encrypt all data transferred between you, us and HMRC.

When you upload your spreadsheet, we only read the nine-box VAT Return figures. We do not use or store any of your underlying financial data.

We do not see or store any of your credit card details. For your annual licence payment, you are re-directed to Payment Express, a banking facility that partners with World Pay. Once payment is made, you are re-directed back to our website. World Pay is a FTSE 100 listed company.

We store very limited information about you. All VAT return historic data, payments and liability information shown on our website come from HMRC's server each time, we do not store these. We store: contact name, business name, e-mail address and phone number. We also store and encrypt: HMRC Gateway IDs & passwords, passwords to our website and VAT Numbers.

The servers we use are kept in a secure UK-based data centre, controlled by the largest web hosting company in Europe. Our servers use enterprise level microsoft operating systems and database software, as well as the latest anti-virus and anti-intrusion blocking software. The database is backed up daily. Remote server access is restricted to administrators having unique hand-held security devices. Remote server access security is provided by Cisco Systems, a company listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

So we take very, very seriously your data security concerns.

What is Making Tax Digital (MTD)?

HM Revenue & Customs wants to cut its costs and get paid taxes quicker. This is the bottom line.

HM Revenue & Customs is able to cut its costs, if it no longer has to offer free software and software support to businesses. Therefore, HM Revenue & Customs are now telling businesses that they must use third party software to file quarterly Returns (for VAT, Income Tax and Corporation Tax). VAT is the first tax to start, with quarterly Income Tax and Corporation Tax Returns to follow over the next few of years.

HM Revenue and Customs orginally intended for quarterly payment of income tax and corporation tax along with the quarterly returns. However, after a back-lash they relented, and now say that businesses can voluntarily pay the taxes filed quarterly (except VAT) if they so wish. In addition, HMRC believes that if businesses see what tax they have to pay every quarter, even if they don't pay it, they are more likely to keep aside money for that tax and not spend it, so businesses that have a history of paying late, do not do so in future.

We are one of those third party software providers, ensuring you keep compliant with the new HMRC rules. We provide what is known as Bridging Software, creating a "bridge" between your bookkeeping data and HMRC, without the need for other expensive software to be purchased, without learning new complicated systems and without losing the flexibility of keeping your business data in Microsoft Excel or another spreadsheet.
