HMRC research opportunity – users of assistive or adaptive technologies

As part of the ongoing development of Making Tax Digital for Business (MTDfB), HMRC is running user research sessions to help them understand how software choices are made.

They are looking for taxpayers who match the following criteria:

  1. Business owners who are users of assistive or adaptive technologies or who use specialised computer access software or hardware due to disability or impairment. For example, technologies such as screen readers, voice input, alternative keyboards or pointing devices.
  2. Volunteers must be comfortable using a computer, the internet and other common software such as Microsoft packages.
  3. Volunteers can either be accounting software users or have no previous experience of using accounting software.
  4. The business can be under or over the VAT threshold.

Sessions will be held either in person in London (Dorset House, 27-45 Stamford Street, London, SE1 9PY), on the phone or via online software - whatever is the most suitable and convenient method for the volunteer.

Each session will last around 60 minutes and will involve a conversation and an activity.

Please email Annicia Dariah at annicia.dariah@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk by 30 April if you are interested in participating.
