Accountex event director Zoe Lacey-Cooper says: ‘HMRC has released a guide to the MTD software that’s on the market, but with over 250 options to choose from it can be difficult to decide which is right for your business.

‘Anyone who is not yet MTD-ready should head to Accountex. The show offers visitors the opportunity to experience live product demonstrations from the leading MTD software providers and meet the teams behind the brands. We’ve got all the big names and latest technology when it comes to digital VAT software – MTD products are present across the show floor.

‘Plus, we’ve got almost 30 MTD-related seminars taking place in the theatres, including exclusive updates direct from HMRC, to bring you up-to-date with everything you need to know.’
