Darlington South Park Foundation is looking for a new volunteer treasurer.
This is an exciting time for the Foundation as we have just received some lottery funding and we are trying to strengthen our team to take the project forward. Our aim is to increase engagement with hard to reach groups and to ensure the park is around for hundreds of years to come.
We are looking for a treasurer who will be able to maintain our accounting records and prepare our annual accounts. We meet every 2 months for around 1-2 hours but there is also an opportunity to get involved further to help on the subcommittee working on the lottery project if this is of interest.
If you’d be interested in the role, or just want to know more about what we are doing, please let me know.
Back in February, I provided you with a link to advice HMRC had released for those businesses waiting for a group registration/deregistration/amendment to be processed. At that time, the advice was to file the returns as if the application had not been submitted.
Upon reflection, HMRC has decided that this is not the correct treatment after all and has published a brief confirming that you should actually file the returns as if the application had been accepted on the date you submitted it.
Following an EU case in 2017, where a customer believed they had been wrongly charged VAT by a supplier, and it would be “impossible or excessively difficult” to recover it from the supplier, they could make a claim to HMRC. This would be the case where, for example, the supplier had become insolvent and been liquidated.
HMRC has now published a brief advising that, as a result of Brexit, claims such as these are no longer possible and instead this is a commercial matter between the two parties.
