Making Tax Digital (23/01/19)

Making Tax Digital is the UK Government’s plan to modernise and digitalise the tax system.

The Government’s ultimate intention is that:

  • HMRC will collect and process information affecting tax liabilities as close to real time as possible;
  • All taxpayers will have digital tax accounts, where they will be able to see all the information that HMRC holds, and keep abreast of their tax position throughout the year.

Integrated Card Payments (15/01/19)


Card payments can now be processed within the 'point of sale', 'sales order entry' and 'receipt of payment' screens. Transaction identifiers are recorded in the database for reporting purposes, and can be printed on the invoice if required.

The processing service is provided by Paymentsense, one of Europe's fastest growing fintech businesses. The company processes over 250 million card payments per year from its 70,000 customers, using its size to negotiate better rates so savings can be passed on.

New Autocat Report (11/01/19)

MAM Software has continued to expand its range of catalogue data services with the addition of new analysis reports that measure and compare the performance of suppliers and their products in its Autocat catalogue.

One of the KPIs that has been developed as part of the new service is an Expected Performance (xP) rating. It analyses items passed to Autopart point of sale (POS) over the past 12 months by its 11,000 system users, and compares them to an average.

The data measures the performance of individual brands and categories against vehicles in MAM's Make Model Index (MMI). Products are designated a best, good, poor or worst Expected Performance (xP) rating, which indicates whether they are performing above or below par.
