How to get ready for MTD for ITSA with Stuart Miller of Xero

On this episode of The Bookkeepers’ Podcast, we loved speaking to Stuart Miller of Xero.

In his role, Stuart makes sure all Xero products are aligned and compliant with current and proposed legislation in the UK. A key part of this is regularly engaging with regulatory bodies like HMRC. Here’s here to talk to us about how we can prepare and get our clients ready for MTD for ITSA.

MTD for ITSA is a topic we need to keep talking about and keep talking to our clients about so it was great to have the opportunity to speak to Stuart who is so knowledgeable. We discussed everything from how the challenge of single agency, to how bookkeepers need to see the value to their clients of quality of their bookkeeping.
