This was another positive and constructive event for us. The stand layout is working very well giving a pleasant and relaxed experience for the visitors.

We have had a lot of positive feedback from the existing customers which is always good to hear. Whilst there is always room for improvement, it is always helpful to hear that we are providing an excellent product and good service.

The prospects that we have seen have also been positive about what we can offer, and we look forward to working with them so that they can derive the benefits that we can offer.

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”.

The evening awards ceremony recognised and celebrated the achievements of dealers. 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!
