As qualified bookkeepers and not qualified accountants we don't offer accountancy compliance services such as tax returns, partnership or limited company accounts.  This is because, whilst we may have covered the foundation of these in our bookkeeping  qualifications, we don't have the knowledge or experience to give our clients the advice they need on tax matters. Of course we know what can be claimed for both VAT and tax purposes but when it comes down to knowing how best to use the tax rules for your personal and business circumstances we leave that to accountants who work with tax matters frequently and for more clients and therefore have the knowledge and experience that we don't.   Because we choose not to do this work…
How does your response to new enquiries reflect on you and your business? Do you pay for advertising but don't bother to follow up when someone makes an enquiry?

As an employee you will be taxed on your earnings by your employer but you may also receive income from other sources.  There are lots of opportunities these days to sell items online or at car boot sales whether that is from turning out unwanted items to selling items that you have made yourself to earn a bit of "pin money". You therefore need to know whether this extra income needs to be declared to HMRC.  HMRC have an interactive checker that will help you decide whether you need to declare your additional income.  …

The Chancellor has announced new support for employers from 1st November after the current Job Retention Scheme ends on 31st October.  Yet another challenge for payroll providers just when we thought we might get a couple of months breather before the Job Retention Bonus after the end of January and the end of the tax year in March! The Job Support Scheme will run for six months and is designed to…
Seventeen years ago this week I began providing bookkeeping and payroll support to a few local businesses.  Three and a half years later I needed to move out of home to an office because work had increased, the files were taking over what little space we had and I needed someone to help.  I started looking for a small office for 3 but ended up with…
