Emma Rawson of the Association of Taxation Technicians has been taking to Radio 5 Live's Wake Up to Money about the new "making tax digital" rules which begin next month. This is about ending paper-based record-keeping to comply with the new VAT rules.

She says it should mark the end of "cutting and pasting" and sending off papers in shoe boxes to accountants.

"It has been driven by attempts to close the tax gap, a lot of that is due to errors being made," she said.

There has been "a little bit of a problem" about companies aware of the changes, she said.
