If you’re an online seller and have any tax questions then log on to Twitter between 7pm and 8pm this evening. HM Revenue and Customs are hosting a live Twitter Question and Answer session today and there will be a tax expert on hand to answer your questions.
This is especially an important opportunity for anyone who recently received a letter from HMRC regarding your online trading. It gives you the chance to get some additional anonymous help free of charge from the people best positioned to assist you.
If you think you may owe any outstanding taxes then HMRC have an ebusiness campaign running and you have until the 14th of June to notify them that you want to put your tax affairs in order. By contacting HMRC before the 14th of June you’ll avoid heavy penalties if they then catch you later down the line (and the chances are high that they will).
