Making Tax Digital

For your V.A.T returns for periods starting on or after 1st April 2019, the Making Tax Digital system is being introduced for V.A.T. returns. Catalyst are pleased to announce that we have demonstrated our compliance with the new system to HMRC and we are now on the list of software suppliers who conform to the requirements of the new system.

Making Tax Digital

You will need a programme update (free to those of you with live software maintenance) that will be available shortly to download from the website. There is an authorisation process which is documented on the Platinum Knowledge Base that needs to be done as part of your first submission under the new system, but this is quick and simple to carry out. For those customers who are not submitting electronically now, it will depend on individual circumstances as to what is involved in complying with the new system, but for the majority, it should be quite straightforward.

Jeff Kingsbury-Smith, managing director, says “Whilst this change has involved a considerable amount of work behind the scenes, we have been able to keep the V.A.T. submission process nearly identical to that which customers have been using up to this point if they were submitting electronically under the old system. As ever, we have made every effort to minimise the impact of the change on our customers.”

Platinum Online v2

Platinum Online version 2 has been rewritten from the ground up to combine the best features of Platinum Online and Platinum Mobile into a single progressive web app.

The old Platinum Online and Platinum Online v2 currently live side-by-side but eventually v2 will take over.

You can try Platinum Online v2 by following the links and "v2" menu options in the old Platinum Online or by adding a bookmark or favourite direct to https://online.catalyst-uk.com/app

  • Platinum Online v2 has a refreshed look and feel although we have tried hard to keep things familiar for existing users.
  • The Workshop and Logistics activity managers have incorporated extra features from Platinum Mobile including the ability to work without a permanent Wi-Fi or mobile data signal.
  • You can now move around and/or collapse sections of the page to suit your requirements.
  • Various places now allow you to scan barcodes using your device's camera.

2018 Service Dealer Conference & Awards

Our sales team were in attendance last week to a very busy and highly successful Service Dealer Conference and Awards ceremony, held at The Oxford Belfry Hotel on 15th November.

The Conference theme was based around the most commonly expressed concerns and issues identified by dealers and continues to grow in popularity. It gives an opportunity to network, share stories, discuss business challenges and most of all share experience and knowledge.

Our team were busy from the outset. Dealers, manufacturers/distributors, industry experts and trade bodies were all keen to meet with us and discuss how Catalyst Platinum DMS is rapidly becoming the solution of choice for the Agricultural, Groundscare & Forestry sectors.

We were delighted to hear one consultant commenting “Any dealer is mad if they don’t use Catalyst”, whilst a leading web / SEO specialist told dealers, “Catalyst is the only DMS that works every time, anytime”.
