Tips for the VAT changes in January 2011

Superfast broadband to be launched in the UK

New government plans released this week mean that every community in the UK will gain access to super-fast broadband by 2015. The private sector is to deliver broadband to two thirds of the UK, whilst other, mainly rural areas will receive public funding to create a 'digital hub' with a fibre optic internet connection. "In order to determine what constitutes 'the best' network in Europe, we will adopt a scorecard which will focus on four headline indicators: speed, coverage, price and choice," the strategy says. "These will be made up of a number of composite measures rather than a single factor such as headline download speed." Matt Holmes, MD of cloud accounting market-leader, Liquid Accounts, Chair of the Cloud Computing Special Interest Group for ...
