at a first approach, I think you must always operate coordinates as latitude/longitude and then apply conversion to UTM

When you say Northing & Easting, do you mean Lat/Lon or in some kind of projection?

The following page is one I've gotten a lot of information from. To project a point a given distance & bearing from a given coordinate, you could use the equations to determine destination using Rhumb lines.

Hi sorry for such a late response to your posts,

The data is on OSGB70 projection, it would be sitting within a variety of GIS applications. Ideally i would like to be able to export it to a xls, csv or  dxf then specify a bearing and a distance to update specific points.

Many Thanks
