The doors of Mattison & Co were first opened by John Mattison on 6 April 1970 to offer friendly and professional accountancy services with help and advice at a reasonable cost.
During the last 50 years many things have changed in compliance rules and regulations starting with the decimalisation of currency in 1971 and then the introduction of VAT in 1973, which was the same year Great Britain joined the European Community.
The internet exploded into our lives in 1995 bringing many changes over the next 5 years in our social and working environment with HMRC being no exception. Gone are the days of filing by post and being on hold for many hours on the telephone or communicating by letter.
With the introduction of Making Tax Digital for VAT (MTD) at the end of this last decade, the need for up to date accountancy software has become a must to meet the requirements of HMRC and we all anticipate the arrival of Making Tax Digital for Income Tax to be the next big change.
For the modern day accountant it is essential that they keep abreast of these changes in compliance to ensure their clients are getting the best advice and service possible. It is a very different world to the one that existed 50 years ago but Mattison & Co still offer friendly, professional accountancy advice and service to assist small businesses with their accountancy, employment law and taxation matters.
