HMRC Webinars – Help For Driving Instructors

hmrc-webinars

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has produced a great set of webinars to help customers to understand a variety of tax systems and learn what obligations they need to meet. Both live and pre-recorded options are available.

Live HMRC Webinars

Live HMRC webinars last for an hour and are interactive, giving you the valuable opportunity to ask questions directly to the webinar host.  The webinars are available on set dates at set times – we have listed them all below for you, and will update this post regularly with the latest webinar schedules.

You will need to register in advance for a live webinar by clicking the relevant link below.  The session is then recorded and made available to view after the event.

Registering for a webinar is really quick and easy – simply provide your name and email address. You will then receive an email with a link to view the webinar at the date and time you have chosen.

Tip: make sure you log in at least 5 minutes before the start time to ensure you have time to download the Citrix GoToMeeting software needed for the HMRC webinars.

Pre-Recorded HMRC Webinars

You don’t need to register for the pre-recorded HMRC webinars.  Although they are available to view instantly, they are not interactive, so you cannot ask questions. We have posted links to the pre-recorded HMRC webinars below.  Some of them are shorter YouTube videos and therefore don’t necessarily contain all of the content that is presented in the 1 hour live webinars.

We have chosen to only list HMRC webinars specifically related to the Driving Instruction industry.  Webinars for the self-employed are listed first, and webinars for Limited companies (including those that are VAT registered) are listed towards the bottom of the page.  There are also many other HMRC webinars available through their website: http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/webinars/topics.htm
