From April 2023 individuals who have income of more than £10,000 per year, including from property, and who complete a Self Assessment Tax Return will have to submit their accounts digitally to HMRC on a quarterly basis.  Whilst this seems a long way ahead now is the time to start thinking how you will manage this.…
In November 2020 the Chancellor announced the new rates for the National Minimum Wage which will take effect from April 2021.…
Many businesses have been formed over the last 9 months whilst we have been in this never before experienced situation.  Employees have been furloughed and some businesses have not been able to continue trading, or not in the way they have done previously. This has given people time to think and assess their work future…
The Christmas and New Year break is a good time to reflect on all that is good and not so good with your business. Business owners have chance to step back and take time to look at what works, what doesn't and what could be better as well as planning for the coming year.…

Whilst this has been a tough year for many businesses there are some people who decided that this year was as good a time as any to set up a business.  Some people will have found the time to think and plan what they really want to do whilst they had more time on their hands.  Some people will have always had an idea in the back of their mind and this year has given them the opportunity to explore the opportunities and take their idea forward.  Others may have a hobby which they have been able to spend more time on and have found there is a market for their product.

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? The way my enquiry is dealt with, whatever the type of business, will, in most cases, will make my decision for me.  If I contact two or three companies with the same enquiry the one that is responsive, interested and helpful will be my choice.  First impressions really count.
