At least once a year every business owner should review the cost of running their business - the overheads.  Whilst you might spend time finding the best and most cost effective supplier for the goods that you sell or for the materials that are used to provide your service, do you consider the other costs that your business incurs?  Costs such as insurance, telephone & broadband, stationery, subscriptions and marketing.  Are you aware of these overhead costs or do you just accept they are what they are?…
I have written a few blogs over the years about the differences between an accountant and a bookkeeper and why I recommend that you use both a bookkeeper and an accountant for your business.  That may be yourself as the bookkeeper, an employed bookkeeper or a bookkeeper external to your business - whatever works best for your business.  During the last 12 months…
The recent ruling against Pimlico Plumbers in favour of one of its workers highlights the need for every business owner to understand the rules around employment and self-employment. The worker in question was self-employed but wanted to be paid sick pay when he fell ill and also to be paid holiday pay.…
Having spent several weeks being bombarded by emails relating to GDPR I am beginning to wonder whether anything has actually changed. I received emails telling me I had to opt in, emails telling me I had to opt out and privacy policies from businesses I don't have anything to do with.  I know I am not the only one who has had enough of GDPR.  Of course we all want to do the right thing for our business and I am sure most small businesses were already protecting sensitive data anyway.…
Last week I spent the day in London at the annual accountancy exhibition, Accountex, held at the ExCel. I first went to the exhibition two years ago and was amazed by the number of stands and variety of speakers.  Having skipped a year to attend the Sage conference, Sarah and I decided we would go to Accountex again to find out more about developments in the accounting industry.  We planned in advance what we wanted to get out of the day and went to different talks and visited different software stands so we could get the most out of it.…
Did you know you can choose which VAT Scheme you use to report VAT? There are several to choose from and it is worth considering which one is best for your business and for your cash flow. …
Not all bookkeepers and accountants are good at their job.  Each has a different sets of skills.  Bookkeepers do the day to day record keeping for your business, whilst accountants are better qualified to look at the overall picture of the business and advise on tax savings and planning.…
There is more to being in business than having a 9 to 5 job.  Being your own boss seems idyllic when you are employed, have regular hours and a regular income.  Being able to work as and when you want, where you want and how you want is the flexibility you crave when you are employed.  Being able to be choosy about the people you work with and the work you do is an exciting prospect.…
Making Tax Digital for Business, now known as MTDfB, will begin in April 2019 but that doesn't mean you can forget it until then.  Now is the time to start thinking about what you need to do in your business to meet the new reporting requirements. MTDfB starts with businesses which are…
