FOR the first time, businesses are being offered interactive support with their tax affairs by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

HMRC will be on hand to offer help and support on a wide range of issues, including keeping records, VAT registration, National Insurance, starting up a limited company and PAYE Real Time Information.

The Starting in Business Week takes place from next Monday until Friday.
