HMRC guidance on senior accounting officers

Newsletter issue - July 2016.

HMRC have published Brief 12(2016), which contains information on changes to their senior accounting officer guidance (SAOG). The Brief aims to clarify HMRC practice and reflects administrative changes to their operational procedures. These include:

  • A change of practice allowing submission of certificates by electronic means in addition to the currently accepted methods;
  • Extensive updates to reflect organisational change within HMRC and the role of Wealthy and Mid-Size Business Compliance (WMBC);
  • New examples of how groups and aggregation should be applied;
  • Clarification of HMRC's view on the inability to delegate the SAO role and their view of time limits for short or long accounting periods;
  • Clarification about when requests for extensions to time limits for SAO notification or certificates will be considered;
  • Clarification of the SAO role where a company is struck off; and
  • Various updates throughout the guidance to reflect the changes to how HMRC are organising their compliance work.

I have worked with Beauchamp Charles as our management accountants for over 20 years and have never received anything less than exceptional service. Their approach is both professional and personal.

They pay very close attention to our business activities and have provided financial strategies that have helped our company develop.

Fredrick Thomas Electrical and Maintenance

We have used Beauchamp Charles since company formation back in 1998. Beauchamp Charles offers us a one to one service as they are small enough to offer this dedicated service and large enough to do the work and offer best advice. They get to know us as individuals and a business, always giving sound advice. Frederick Thomas Electrical are in a stronger place thanks to the service we get from them.

Barnes Walker Landscapes Limited

We are a small business and had employed the same accountancy firm for many years. Two years ago we took the decision to switch to Beauchamp Charles after several othe local businesses recommended them very highly to us. We have not been disappointed with the service they have provided to us over these last two years.
