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.”

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”.

As a ‘Gold sponsor’ of the event Mike Cameron, Systems Sales Manager, took to the stage discussing the “Aftersales Powerhouse” before presenting the “Star of the dealership” award to Jess Parks of A F Wiltshire, who has made tremendous efforts in learning about and helping to grow the Aftersales business at Wiltshire’s. Well done Jess!

Multi-brand agricultural parts platform support - agroparts

agroparts - World’s largest multi-brand agricultural parts platform

Catalyst Platinum DMS now links with the world’s largest multi-brand agricultural parts platform, 'agroparts'.

  • Dealers using Catalyst Platinum DMS can now upload and download their parts basket / orders directly into 'agroparts'.

The agroparts basket upload / download tool is a new feature of Catalyst’s powerful and flexible DMS, helping dealers save time, become even more efficient and drive success.

The news of this new feature has generated much interest amongst dealers and the brands represented on the agroparts site. All parties can see the benefits of using Catalyst’s Platinum DMS.

More and more agricultural dealers are using Catalyst Platinum DMS to move their business operations forward. Dealers are reassured by Catalyst’s proven solution, continuous development program and the back-up provided by full-time, dedicated and experienced support teams.

Platinum and Windows XP

Along with today's release of the 'Media Preview' update, Platinum will no longer run on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 and 2003 R2 machines. We haven't supported Windows XP since January 2017 but Platinum did still function (albeit without support) on this platform.

All other machines running Windows Vista or later (Win7, Win8 and Win10) are unaffected.

Microsoft themselves long ago abandoned support for this version of Windows.

Windows XP is very vunerable to attack!
