From 13th January 2018 HMRC will no longer accept payment of taxes by personal credit card and prior to that, from 15th December 2017, payments will not be able to be made through the Post Office. Payments can be made to HMRC by:…
Its that time of year when we may be thinking about how to reward our employees for their support during the year.  Perhaps you are thinking about giving them a Christmas bonus or perhaps a bottle of wine and some chocolates.  Or maybe you are planning to take them out for a Christmas meal or having a party.…
If you want to expand your business you need people to support you as there is no way you can do everything yourself.  But it seems that business owners are reluctant to employ anyone and would rather use an associate or a consultant than commit to someone joining their business.  Even if they need someone to do the day to day administration it has become more common to use someone who is self-employed.  Why is this?…
Before you start your business you need to decide whether you will be a Sole Trader or a Limited Company.  Or you may choose to be a Partnership rather than a Limited Company if there are two or more business owners.  It can be confusing and many business owners opt for Limited Company status without really understanding what is involved.  …
I have been providing bookkeeping services to individuals and businesses for more than 14 years now and one of the biggest surprises to me in the first few years was to be told that I was a good bookkeeper.  I was surprised because shouldn't all bookkeepers be good?  Keeping accurate records and understanding the financial aspects of a business is what bookkeepers do and whilst we learn different areas of bookkeeping for different businesses the foundations of our learning are still the same.…

That can be daunting if you really don't know where to start and what you should include.…
There are lots of things to remember about VAT when you are VAT registered.  Here are ten things about VAT which you may not know. …
You may think that you have done all your need to once you have reached your Staging Date for Auto Enrolment. You have set up your pension scheme and sent out communications to your employees.  You have auto enrolled your workers and deducted contributions from their pay.  You have even remembered to do your Declaration of Compliance.  So what else is there to do?…
Making Tax Digital (MTD) is HMRC's term for submission of tax information online.  The revised implementation date was announced in July 2017 and now we have a little more information about what will be expected. From April 2019 VAT registered businesses over the VAT registration threshold (£85,000 for 2017-18) will have to submit their monthly or quarterly VAT returns online through their accounts software.  VAT registered businesses below the VAT registration threshold will not be required to but can submit in this way voluntarily.  If you submit annual VAT returns you will be able to continue to do this.  …
