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more than £60,000, it is lost completely and there is a sliding scale between the two figures where it is gradually withdrawn.

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.
