Sting in the tail in the Autumn Statement!

December 9th, 2013
Comments Off

Chancellor George Osborne delivered his Autumn Statement on 5 December 2013. Most articles summarising the changes have missed a key point which may affect you. When you sell a house which has previously been your principal private residence, the gain attributable to the final 36 months has been exempt from tax. From 6 April 2014, this is being reduced to just 18 months. This also affects residential lettings relief given when the property concerned has been let out during the period of ownership. If you are planning on selling a property which was once your home, you may wish to contact us so that we can advise you on whether it may be worth selling the property prior to this change if possible.

We now accept card payments!

June 7th, 2013
Comments Off

We have been asked by clients to start accepting card payments. I am therefore pleased to announce that we can now accept payment of our fees by debit or credit card. Each transaction is subject to a 2% fee over and above the invoice value being paid, but we hope that this will be more than compensated for by the additional flexibility and ease of payment. If you wish to settle an invoice, please call us and we will collect the necessary card details from you over the phone and process the transaction whilst you are on the phone.

March 2012 Budget Summary

March 22nd, 2012
Comments Off

Well, there goes another Budget where the stimulus for smaller businesses was once again lacking. Why do they insist on reducing the corporation tax rate for larger businesses when it is smaller businesses who really need the help?

The one upside is that a lot of families who thought they were going to lose Child Benefit will still get it as long as neither party earns more than £50,000. If either party earns more than £60,000, it is lost completely and there is a sliding scale between the two figures where it is gradually withdrawn.

Please do e-mail us with your comments or questions on the Budget!

The Red Envelope

July 5th, 2011
Comments Off

We have launched our “Red Envelope“. If you utilise our book keeping and VAT preparation services, we will shortly be sending you a Red Envelope. This is for you to return your monthly or quarterly book keeping information to us. Once we receive a Red Envelope from you, we will send you another one ready for the next batch of information.

We hope that you find this useful. We believe that putting your information into the Red Envelope as soon as you’ve dealt with it will help you keep your relevant paperwork together and once it is in there, you can forget about it (other than posting the envelope to us of course!).

Please do provide us with feedback as to whether you like the idea and whether the envelopes are of a suitable quality to safely convey your information to us. We will use this feedback to drive any future improvements to the design.
