BREAKING FINANCIAL NEWS:
HMRC announced that 1st April 2013 is the target date for the introduction of Phase 1 of EU Directive F-00-1.
This directive requires accounts and corporation tax returns to be submitted monthly instead of annually and is part of a series of emergency measures introduced to ease the European debt crisis through a reduction in outstanding debt and an improvement in tax collection rates.
Lobby groups have labelled the new scheme as an ‘onerous burden on accountants’ but the EU spokeswoman for Fiscal Planning , April Thurst, defended the decision saying ‘this will ease the year end burden on accountants and take us a step closer to signing up to the Fiscal Operator Obligation Limits’ that suggest accountants should not work more than 45 hours a week.

Tesco acquires Google
Tesco CEO Philip Clarke said “This is great news for Tesco, we are absolutely delighted. We will be putting our own mark on the search engine and changing the name from Google to Toogle. We plan to integrate the way we do things with our supermarkets into this new venture. For example, every search made through Toogle will earn visitors club card points. Site visitors will also be able to c0nduct their grocery shopping through Toogle, which will enable us to create more hi-tech jobs in the UK such as virtual shelf stackers and virtual cashiers.”
Tesco closing all superstores by 2013 to go purely virtual
CEO Philip Clarke continued: “We hope that this will pave the way for other retailers in the industry, and also for all members of our supply chain so that eventually we can close all of our existing superstores to go purely virtual. Working in partnership with existing Google staff and the merger and acquisitions team at Accenture we are planning to fully integrate our existing websites and online assets over the next 12 months. The project is expected to be completed by 1st April 2013 at the very latest.”
