New HMRC guidance regarding the flat rate scheme

On 4 May 2016 HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) issued an updated edition of VAT Notice 733 regarding the flat rate scheme for small businesses:

This notice cancels and replaces Notice 733 (May 2013).

Details of the changes to the previous version can be found in paragraph 1.2 of the above notice.
