Our Exceptional Clients

We are all about relationships. We have some truly great clients who inspire us constantly with their enthusiasm and business drive. We work with companies from all kinds of industries but our clients tend to have a one thing in common – they want to grow their business and be as successful as possible. They have the attitude and energy to look forward and strive for what they want from their business and for themselves.  It has been a privilege to work with so many successful companies, where we have acted as trusted advisors covering all of their strategic and operational accounting requirements.

Our Exceptional Tech

More and more, we are seeing the benefits technology can bring to our clients. But tech on its own is not good enough, we always make sure our clients understand how it works so they can use it and trust it. This means proper training and proper help and support making it work day in and day out. Our technology gives you the freedom to do your accounting on the move – you are no longer tied to your desk, you can raise invoices and submit your receipts all through an app on your phone or tablet.

Making Tax Digital – are you ready?

  Making Tax Digital or MTD is one of the furthest reaching HMRC initiatives of the past 20 years, which makes it all the more surprising that a recent British Chamber of Commerce survey discovered that nearly a quarter of British businesses surveyed had no knowledge of the impending arrival of MTD whilst a further 66% had only heard the phrase with no idea of its implications for their organisation. What is Making Tax Digital? An initiative designed to make the entire UK tax system more efficient (and HMRC claim, easier for taxpayer). In the first phase, all VAT registered businesses above the £85,000 threshold will be required to keep digital records and to submit their VAT returns using compatible software. In the second phase, income tax and corporation tax will also be make digital. HMRC says that the new digital system will: Create more accurate tax records and reduce the scope for errors, miscalculations and deliberate fraud Allow automation for businesses, accountants and HMRC, saving time at every stage in the taxation system Reduce the burden of taxation on small businesses by given them the opportunity to record and file tax returns online   Making Tax Digital timeline April 2019 – first phase, the new MTD regime for VAT reporting, will be implemented April 2020 – second phase of MTD relating to income tax for self employed person and those receiving an income from property is expected to roll out, along with an MTD plan for corporation tax.

Late Filing Penalties – A Move to Points System Proposed

A move from fines to points system A move to a points system rather than fines from 2019 is being proposed. This is in an attempt to focus Treasury attention on serious tax avoidance offences. Rather than on punishing small taxpayers who’ve made mistakes. The present system has been to impose a £100 fine on all self-assessment tax payers when they miss the 31 January deadline. This sum increases as further deadlines are passed without payment. The second deadline is the end of April. In the 2016/17 tax year 840,000 individuals failed to meet the deadline, many of whom appealed against the fine for reasons including illness and hardship. From 2019 The proposed new points system, which would come into effect in 2019, would have a sliding scale based on the number of times an individual or business needs to report to HMRC. For example, individuals paying annually via the self-assessment system would incur a fine after just two points. While those paying quarterly can accrue four points. A benefit of this system is that sustained compliance with the tax regime after a failure will return the points accumulated back to nil. So if you miss filing, but then comply with deadlines for the next annual filing period, your ‘earned’ points will be wiped off your record.
