Brief Case.

TAXPAYERS who still need to make self assessment payments to the Inland Revenue before the January 31 deadline can do so right up until midnight on the day itself by using Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank's BillPay web site at www.billpayment.co.uk Almost pounds 5m was paid to the Inland Revenue on January 31 last year via the service. Internet users do not need an on line bank account to make a payment,just a debit card. THE number of small and medium-sized businesses with broad band internet access has more than doubled, from 16% to 34%, in the past six months.

It is believed to be due to increased awareness and appreciation of the benefits that this technology can deliver to business.

ABOUT 75,000 small firms with an annual taxable turnover of up to pounds 150,000 can now benefit by signing up to the VAT Flat Rate Scheme after changes in the Chancellor's pre-budget report.

New rates mean that a total of 400,000 businesses in all trade sectors will make savings and there is an extra 1% off the new lower rates for any business in their first year of VAT registration. Further details are available from the Customs National Advice Service on 0845 010 9000 or by logging on to the Customs and Excise website, www.hmce.gov.ukBUILDING surveyor Andrew Ward has joined Warrington-based APE Project Management.
