1 in 5 pensioners face tax return ‘misery’

We all know that filling out a tax return can be painful, but while you might have thought that retirement would release you from HM Revenue & Customs’ clutches, that no longer seems to be the case.
The number of pensioners who filed a tax return last year hit 1.7m, a figure that has jumped significantly in the last two decades.
Figures obtained from HMRC by insurance company Royal London show that in the 2015-16 tax year, 1.7m of the 10m who completed an individual tax return were aged 65 or older.
More than 250,000 of these tax return pensioners were aged 80 or over.

FreeAgent: Just 51% of invoices paid on time

Research showing that almost 50% of invoices are not paid on time has strengthened calls for the government to tackle the late payment crisis affecting freelancers and other microbusinesses.
Conducted by cloud accountancy software company FreeAgent, the research analysed 50,000 businesses and hundreds of thousands of invoices from the last year.
Last year, the government pledged to tackle the late payment of invoices. In part this was to be done through a Small Business Commissioner, who would act as a champion for Britain’s busy small businesses. But this post has yet to be filled.
