LOCAL businesses are being invited to 'do it online' at an Internet workshop being hosted by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The free session in Lancaster is one of a series across the region designed to help employers gain tax-free savings by using online systems for their tax returns.

Tax office business support team manager Pauline Rylatt says: "Online filing is a quicker, convenient way for employers to send their annual return. Employers with fewer than 50 employees can get up to £575 tax-free if they file online.

"Our presentations will explain how they can qualify, and also answer questions they may have about any aspect of their returns. These sessions will also offer the opportunity to register online,"

Workshops run throughout October, November and December. For details and to book a place at the Lancaster event, call 0151-242-8380.
