The Genius of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Acupuncture without the needles
EFT, for me, is, quite simply, an amazing and highly successful therapy, now used extensively throughout the world, either alone, or in conjunction with other psychological and mind-body therapies.
I believe it should be taught in all schools.
A combination of ancient Chinese
acupressure and modern psychology, it involves tapping on various meridian points on the body, while talking about the issue/s and associated emotions.
EFT in its current form was developed by its founder, Gary Craig, who describes the cause of all negative emotion as stemming from a disruption in the body's energy system. Emotions from particular events in your life become trapped in the cells of your body and continue to live there until released. Nearly everybody can identify exactly where a particular ‘stuck’ emotion is living in their body - often in their chest, stomach, or throat.
Worldwide, rigorous clinical research, on the physical and mental changes and benefits EFT creates, is now extensive. Apart from more ‘normal’ everyday uses, EFT has been used
psychologists and practitioners world- wide to:
School in the US.
• help treat war veterans and others with significant levels of PTSD to recover.
• help significantly improve the health and wellbeing of child cancer patients.

• restoring confidence, calm, positive feelings, energy and optimism;
The genius of EFT is that you can pull up what is bothering you or holding you back and turn it off on purpose:
• enabling you to release fear, anger, anxiety, sadness, guilt and negative
• easing pain, often reducing and alleviating the symptoms of ailments

MESSING UP TAX DIGITALLY
As I write this, we are 10 days away from the first VAT submission deadline for Making Tax Digital (MTD). This is HMRC’s half-baked and badly implemented scheme to get everyone to file VAT digitally, in the process adding hassle and cost to many small business owners’ lives.
Despite numerous requests from the main accountancy bodies and others, HMRC refused to set up a separate helpline for MTD. So, any problems with MTD require a call to the standard VAT helpline, to speak – if you are lucky – with someone who will know very little about the technical aspects of MTD. As a result, the waiting times on this helpline are ridiculous and can only get worse over the summer leave- taking season.
The errors are numerous and various. They include the HMRC database failing to recognise
CONSIDERED WORDS BY OAKTREE ACCOUNTANCY
a business in their system, being unable to process direct debits in the new system, not being able to cope with different number formats in source files, problems in getting HMRC to process changes of business address in the new system and so on.
Many accountants are spending up to an hour on the telephone lines to HMRC trying to sort out this mess but not me. So far, I’ve filed 12 VAT returns successfully and had problems with 2. I am more than 95% confident these problems are down to HMRC. So, I have successfully filed those VAT returns in the old system and followed them up with a standard
letter to HMRC explaining what I have done and why.
This standard letter pulls no punches. It explains that the cause of the problem is: “The way MTD was rushed in so incompetently”, and concludes that “My client accepts no legal liability for any problemsarising out of HMRC’s failure to properly implement the new system.”
It takes five minutes to send this letter off to HMRC. If you are a small business owner who has made a decent attempt to file your VAT return but hit technical problems, you can have a copy of this letter for free.
Put the time and work in fixing these problems back with the blunderers who created them – HMRC!
