How to use the segmentation spreadsheet for Making Tax Digital
Step one: collate a list of all the client names that you want to categorise.
Step two: identify who they bank with.
Step three: on the 'Segmentation Tool' tab, copy the list into column B, starting at cell 8.
Step four: on the 'Segmentation Tool' tab, work through each client, selecting the appropriate response from the drop down in each of the columns E to I. If you are unsure, leave it as a yes.
