Companies below this threshold will continue to pay at the current rate.
Annual Investment Allowances
Annual Investment Allowance will remain at the £1m from April 2023.
‘Full Expensing’ Deduction

Further support is available for R&D intensive SMEs (companies who’s qualifying expenditure is worth 40%+ of total expenditure) as the repayable tax credit will remain at 14.5% rather than the reduced 10%

Personal allowances (£12,570), basic rate tax bands (20%) and higher rate tax bands (40%) bands are maintained until April 2028.

Please get in touch if you would like further information, or for full details, read the Spring Budget 2023 on GOV.UK.
NATIONAL INSURANCE & PENALTIES UPDATE
On 7th March 2023, the government announced that taxpayers have until 31st July 2023 to make voluntary national insurance (NI) contributions to top up missing or partial years since April 2006. The retrospective contributions made in this window will be at the 2022/23 voluntary NI rates.
In normal circumstances, it’s possible to make voluntary NI contributions retrospectively for the previous six tax years only.
A new fines and penalties regime was introduced by HM Revenue & Customs from 1st January 2023, to bring VAT in line with Self Assessments. VAT registered businesses receive a penalty point for each late VAT return submission.
A total of four penalty points leads to an automatic £200 fine. A further £200 fine will be imposed for each subsequent late return. This applies to nil and repayment returns.
HMRC will remove points, if both of the following conditions are met:
Condition A – ‘A period of compliance’ – a business submits returns on time for a period of twelve months (for quarterly VAT filing).
Condition B – All VAT returns for a period of 24 months have been received by HMRC (for quarterly VAT filing).
In addition, as long as a business has not received the maximum number of penalty points, a point will be removed 24 months after it was received, if there have been no further late submissions in the period.
Late Payment Penalties
Further to this, there is also a late payment penalty which is dependent upon the day the liability was finally received. If the liability has not been paid by day 15 the late filing penalty interest will start to be charged if the amount is not settled by 30 days. After 30 days, interest is charged on a daily rate until the payment is received.
The amount decreases significantly if a ‘time to pay’ agreement is put in place with HMRC, particularly in the first 15-day period. Payments on account will obviously reduce the fines and penalties, pro-rata to the amount owed.
These late submission penalty rules do not apply for any of the three reasons below:
1) First VAT return if the business is newly VAT registered.
2) Final VAT return after a business cancels their VAT registration.
3) One off return that covers a period other than a month, quarter or year.
A ‘period of familiarisation’ applies until 31st December 2023, with no fines being made if the business pays their outstanding liability within 30 days after the due date. However, late payment interest will be charged on the outstanding balance from day one.
Interest will continue to be charged on outstanding VAT amounts at the Bank of England base rate plus 2.5%, In January 2023 this equated to 6%.
HMRC are also replacing the old ‘repayment supplement’ with repayment interest, which is calculated at the Bank of England Base Rate less 1%, with a minimum percentage of 0.5%.
LISHMANS COLLABORATES WITH AAG IT SERVICES AND THE LITTLE SURVEY COMPANY TO OPTIMISE TECHNOLOGY
Lishmans’ IT services partner AAG listened to feedback from our entire team to provide us with the best possible IT solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
The Little Survey Company worked with AAG to design a bespoke survey: “You and Your Technology”, to explore how people feel about the technology they use at work. This included insights on their everyday experiences, training needs, cyber security and perceptions of the IT strategy.
Alexa Greaves, CEO, AAG IT Services, said:
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with both Lishmans and The Little Survey Company to create this unique survey. Through this process, we have all gained an incredible insight into the how the team feel about the technology they use, their understanding of the IT strategy, and key areas where support is required.
Lishmans have demonstrated to their team how keen they are to listen to their feedback and create a positive working environment of collaboration and continuous improvement. We look forward to working together to mould the IT strategy.”
Margaret Kilner, Practice Director, Lishmans LLP, said:
“AAG and The Little Survey Company combined their expert knowledge of their subject areas to create and run a survey that gave a massive boost to our understanding of the key issues facing our team and how we might best support them.
Digital transformation is rapid in our industry, which is really exciting, but we need to ensure no one is left behind. The results will inform our IT and Innovation Strategy and act as a benchmark to measure progress.”
The Little Survey Company worked closely with Margaret to communicate the survey’s aims, practicalities and benefits, leading to a high response rate and yielding a wealth of valuable feedback.
Having this information enabled AAG to put in place systems and strategies which work effectively in practice to meet the needs of Lishmans’ team and clients.
With support in place to ensure people have the necessary knowledge and skills to benefit from the full potential of technology, we can maintain the highest standards of data protection, efficiency and accuracy.
The survey findings identified specific areas for people-focused actions and investment in the IT Strategy. AAG and Lishmans now have evidence to better understand how technology is perceived in the business; where training or improvements should be implemented; and how to empower employees to get the most from their technology solutions.
With this survey and our shared commitment to adopt the right technology for the people involved, we’re ensuring a positive benefit for everyone’s day to day work.
MAKING TAX DIGITAL – DELAYED TO 2026
On Monday 19th December 2022 the UK Government announced that the biggest shake up of Self Assessment – the introduction of MTD ITSA (Making Tax Digital Income Tax Self-Assessment) – would be deferred from April 2024 to April 2026.
We updated you with the timescale for those changes previously, and many of the changes are still taking place, such as filing VAT returns through Making Tax Digital which recently became mandatory.
The Government has delayed the ITSA plans, citing that businesses and the self-employed are currently facing a challenging economic environment, and that transition to MTD for ITSA represents a significant change for taxpayers, agents and HMRC. Therefore, it’s been decided that more time is needed to implement the change to maximise the benefits of the change.
The rules for implementation have also been amended, as follows:
1) From April 2026, self-employed individuals and landlords with an income of more than £50,000 will be required to keep digital records and provide quarterly updates on their income and expenditure to HMRC through MTD-compatible software.
2) Those with an income of between £30,000 and up to £50,000 will need to do this from April 2027.
3) MTD ITSA will not be introduced for Partnerships in 2025, with an expected date yet to be announced by HMRC.
4) For individuals and businesses under the £30,000 threshold, HMRC has not announced any mandatory dates and are currently looking into the best way to move forward.
As always, we’ll keep clients updated with any further changes and look forward to helping you adapt to MTD ITSA in the future, either voluntarily (ahead of time) or when mandated to do so by HMRC
This November we extend our thanks to loyal clients, colleagues, family and friends on the first anniversary of the merger of Lishmans and Turner Beaumont & Co. Ltd. accountancy practices.
This has been our second merger under the Lishmans name, bringing together both firms into one team has enhanced the services available to clients; with a dedicated Payroll team, a greater depth of knowledge and experience in the staff team and a wider network of both Taxation and VAT Specialists.
Partner Emily Kirk recognises the achievements over the year: “Enacting this merger at the right time and in the most seamless way for staff and clients was a key focus for us at the start of this process.
Now, a year on, having had the pleasure of meeting the vast majority of clients new to Lishmans, I can confidently say that we have well established relationships and have been able to bring additional value through our commitment to getting to know and understand each and every client.
A great example of this is the introduction of cloud-based software packages such as Sage, Quickbooks and Xero – although these programs are designed with non-accountants in mind, getting the set up right is crucial, and a one size fits all approach has never been our approach. I’m proud of the way the Lishmans team has supported clients to introduce these new ways of working, saving precious time and improving accuracy.”
Partner Gerard Price said: “After a successful transition of all former Turner Beaumont & Co. Ltd. on 8th November 2021, the hard work started!
The year has been gratifying in the stable and new relations we have made while consolidating and ensuring the high level of service to all clients, new and old.
During the year we have been troubled by global disruption, economic instability, resultant new tax regimes and a need support clients in prudent and careful strategies, to maintain solid tax and cash positions for all clients.
We are well prepared for the future challenges and we on hand to advise and help- communication is the key. These changes and challenges will affect us all, however as always, we are well placed to continue the quality work and advice that each and every client deserves.
We are always on hand to help.”

Stamp Duty Land Tax
SDLT cuts for England and Northern Ireland remain in place until 31st March 2025.

Please get in touch if you would like any further information, or for full details, read the Autumn Statement on GOV.UK.
MAKING TAX DIGITAL – THE NEXT PHASE
Bringing You Up To Date
Over the last three years, the UK Government has introduced measures to digitalise the UK tax system, beginning with the introduction of Making Tax Digital (MTD) in April 2019. This meant all VAT registered businesses, above the registration threshold, had to file their VAT Returns digitally.
In April 2022, this rule was extended to all VAT registered businesses and from November 2022, it’s mandatory for all VAT Returns to be filed through MTD, via third party software, such as Xero, Quick Books or SAGE. We’re working with all clients who meet the criteria regarding the filing requirements and hopefully you’re getting used to the new regime with a smooth transition from manual to digital records.
Whilst these measures have so far only related to VAT registered businesses, a significant change for all self-employed individuals will soon be introduced, which is the biggest shake up of the UK tax system since the introduction of Self-Assessment over twenty years ago.
The implementation of MTD ITSA (Making Tax Digital Income Tax Self-Assessment) was due to take place in April 2023 but was postponed to April 2024 for various reasons, with the pandemic a significant contributory factor.
For any sole trader or partnership your financial year will now align with the tax year (6th April – 5th April) and how we as accountants prepare your financial statements will also change. As always, we’ll be on touch to help you prepare for this this specific change.
The new rules will affect all self-employed individuals, regardless of whether they are VAT registered or not, whose total income, from business or property rental, exceeds £10,000.
This new HMRC system will require income and expenditure information to be filed quarterly, with a period end ‘finalising statement’ also submitted (a summary of the previous four returns plus the various accountancy adjustments which you would normally see in a standard set of sole trader/partnership accounts).
If an individual has both trade and rental income then returns have to be filed for both elements of that self-employment, meaning ten submissions will be needed – all quarterly returns will have to be filed by the end of the following month, in June, September, December and March intervals.
It’s worth noting that the current Self-Assessment Tax Return will no longer be required by HMRC as your tax liability will be calculated from the information received on the quarterly returns, plus any accounting adjustments detailed on the final declaration submission. Every quarter you’ll be informed by HMRC of your estimated tax liability for the year, which should help you budget. Details of how this system will work in practice have not yet been confirmed, but we know it will be introduced in less than 18 months.
We recommend all clients be on the front foot, fully informed about the impending changes and reassured that we’re here to help, with the software to digitize your records and file with HMRC when the new rules become mandatory.
HMRC also encourage early adaption of the new system so please contact us if you’re interested in this option or anything related to MTD. The change will no doubt have challenges but we will work with you to give the best professional support and advice to help you adapt.
WE’RE MAKING IT EASIER TO PAY INVOICES
In our drive to maintain the best possible experience for our clients, we’re launching a new payment method for our invoices on 31st October 2022. All existing clients will have heard about this directly by email in advance of the changes, so you know you can trust the communications are from us.
We’ve partnered with Xero to provide an online ‘Pay now’ function to invoices which allows all clients to pay directly using debit or credit cards, or even Apple Pay. This option is available alongside our current payment options, on all invoices below £5,000.
If you want to give us a call to further confirm the legitimacy of any invoice on receipt of the email, please don’t hesitate to do so on 01142 465 348. Any changes to future billing will always be communicated directly with your security being our priority.
We hope you’ll enjoy the convenience of this innovation. If this change has got you thinking about improving your invoicing process, contacts us to find out about how we can help you provide the same service for your business.
We are delighted to announce that as of Monday 8th November 2021, Lishmans LLP has merged with another long-established accountancy practice based in Chapeltown, Sheffield, Turner Beaumont & Co. Ltd., as we seek to strengthen the depth and breadth of services we’re able to offer.

With our offices now safely re-opened and our team providing a full range of services in a hybrid model (remote and office based), we’re pleased to be able to take a moment to look back on our achievements during the pandemic and let you know what you can expect from Lishmans in the future.
Several news outlets have covered the £250,000 funding package Lishmans secured to support the future of the business and drive forward expansion plans.
The funding, part of the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme, was secured having helped clients secure more than £20 million from the same pot.
The finance, secured through NatWest, enabled the business to continue servicing clients and also to remain on track to meet its expansion ambitions in 2021, with plans to purchase a second practice in South Yorkshire, creating up to 25 jobs.
Gerard said: “In the last four years we have supported a wide range of clients and consistently grown year on year. We were keen to keep this momentum going during the tricky lockdown period so that we would be in a strong position going forward.
“The support from NatWest has allowed us to continue to support our roster of clients, as well as maintain our brilliant team that are working so hard to service them. By going through the application process for CBILS funding ourselves, we were able to accurately support businesses with their own applications, something that was invaluable to our clients.”
Optimum Commercial Solutions Ltd introduced Lishmans to NatWest broker development manager, Simon Steer and NatWest relationship manager, Ray Booth.
Ray said: “Lishmans is a successful business with strong reserves and a great reputation in the local area. We were happy to secure a CBILS loan to strengthen the firm as it looks towards 2021. We are confident that the business will continue to grow organically, and we look forward to working together again n the future as the business opens its second office”.

IT’S OUR ANNIVERSARY!
Lishmans LLP extend their thanks to loyal clients, colleagues, family and friends on the first anniversary of the merger of Lishmans and Westons accountancy practices.
The merger brought together the two firms under the Lishmans name and the subsequent year has been one of growth and consolidation.
Senior Partner Gerard Price said: “It’s been an incredibly fruitful year, bringing the two firms together; getting to know our new team members as well as our new clients. We’re known for building strong relationships with every client we work for and with the hard work and dedication of our team, we’ve carried that ethos forward as our client base has grown.
As we hoped, our increased size and the range of skills and experience we have to draw from, has enhanced the service we’re able to offer to clients. The growth of Lishmans this year has enabled us to realise some of our ambitions for the company, but there is still so much more to come”.
Associate Emily Humphreys said: “As anyone who has led a similar business change will know, bringing together two well established, strong businesses requires a great deal of careful consideration and commitment.
Critically, both businesses shared the same goal, in being equally committed to providing first class client services. I’m extremely proud of the way that staff from both companies came together to make the merger an unquestionable success and I look forward to what we will achieve together in the years to come”.
