Last week was a time of celebration.  A wedding has been the discussion of our office for the last few months and Saturday was the day.…
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.…
Xero Drop In is our new one-to-one Xero training service.  Xero is very popular for maintaining business accounts but how well is it working for you? The information you get out of Xero is only as good as the information you put in and if you are struggling to understand how to make a particular accounting aspect of your business work then the information you get out won't be of any real value.…
Our recent seminar, New Year, New Business - A Guide for Startups, was very successful despite the unplanned power cut across our area that morning!  The presentation without electricity became a very relaxed informal discussion around the table.  Candles would have been good but the emergency light and a small window gave everyone just about enough light to make notes!  …
We are already one week into 2018 but what did 2017 bring us that we can celebrate and learn from?…
Back in the summer we began discussing what we might do for our team building event this year.  For the past two years we have been to the Escape Rooms in Salisbury after our annual training and development day which has been really good fun.  But this year we wondered what we could do that was different.…
For the last week our team have enjoyed the company of a sixth form student on work experience. Rosie is considering accountancy as a career and wanted to experience the type of work involved.  Whilst we are not accountants we are responsible for keeping the accounts records before they are passed to an accountant so our work was a good insight to the foundations of accountancy.  This was a completely new experience for us so our bookkeepers planned carefully the things that they thought would be useful for her to see and do.…
The Christmas and New Year break is a time to reflect on our achievements in 2016 and plan what we can do differently or better in 2017. 2016 for Sandra Silk Bookkeeping was a year of good memories of our achievements, our growth and our team. One outstanding memory for me was being invited by John Glen MP to Westminster …
Why is training so valuable? We learn all the time while we go about our daily work and for us in particular we are constantly working with clients who have different types of business and different needs. Our responsibility to our clients is to know, as far as we can, the HMRC rules which could affect each of our clients. From knowing what expenses can be claimed to whether employees are receiving a benefit from the expenses they claim. We need to understand VAT rules not only in relation to the UK but also overseas sales and purchases and the VAT implications of those.…
We are always looking for efficient and cost effective ways of helping small local businesses. Whether it’s by completing timely and accurate VAT returns, taking the headache out of your payroll, getting your Auto-Enrolment sorted by your staging date or even just a chat about how the business is going over a cup of tea and a biscuit! We are here to help your business grow, which is why we have partnered with QuickBooks to bring you faster, easier accounts that you can access at your fingertips and won’t cost you the earth.…
