Our approach is to be friendly, honest and approachable. We listen to your needs and tailor your service package to suit you. We offer simple yet effective practical advice on a fixed fee basis.

Are all accountants the same?

Not at all. The word accountant is not protected in the UK, so anyone can call themselves an accountant. We are proud to be a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales, which means we are subject to strict rules and ethics.

Whether it be personal or corporate taxation, we have the knowledge to ensure you are as tax efficient as possible. This is an area many people feel out of their depth with and we want to ensure you, you are in safe hands with us.

    As our 6PM lockdown curfew approaches. There seems one obvious choice for our follow Friday this week. This account has helped me so much over the last few months and I am sure will for the next couple of weeks. I've bought masks from people they have recommended, eaten where they have suggested and even got clients due to them. So a massive thank you and huge....go follow them to ... See MoreSee Less

    Hi all. I know you wait for Thursdays, well here is my weekly hints and tips. Today’s hint relates to client entertainment and gifts. I am often asked what is and isn't allowable for tax purposes. Well normally any client or supplier entertaining is not allowable. You can put through the business accounts but for tax purposes it is disallowed. However, this is not always the case both of these are allowable..........

    1) If you give a business gift worth up to £50 to a person, it can be tax deductible. This happens where the gift carries a conspicuous advert and is not food, drink, tobacco or vouchers.

    2) If refreshments are normally provided for an office meeting, and there is no alternative than to hold a meeting outside the office, then the purchase of similar items will be allowed. Items bought after the meeting and alcohol (shame!!) are not allowable.

    So my finding funding post is a little later than normal and this is due to the ever changing grants at the minute. I was hoping more information would be released today but as I type this there is nothing. So... I will use the wording from Business Wales' website:

    Following the First Minister’s announcement of a short firebreak, the Economic Resilience Fund is being enhanced to almost £300m, which includes an extra £150m to support to businesses affected by the firebreak. It also includes an additional £20m to the £80m fund already announced to help businesses develop in the longer term, of which £20m has been ring-fenced for tourism and hospitality.

    The third phase of ERF also includes a Lockdown Business Fund which will be delivered by local authorities to eligible businesses of:

    - Every business occupying a property with a rateable value of £12,001 or less will be eligible for a £1,000 payment.

    - Retail, leisure and hospitality businesses forced to close during the firebreak lockdown period occupying a property with a rateable value between £12,001 and £51,000 will be eligible for a £5,000 payment.

    - A discretionary £2,000 top-up grant will be made available on an application basis for those businesses with a rateable value of £12,000 or less who are forced to close by the firebreak lockdown.

    - A further discretionary £1,000 grant will be made available to businesses on the same basis where they are materially affected by local lockdown measures for 21 days or more prior to the start of the firebreak lockdown period.

    The eligibilty checker for the ERF Phase 3 Business Development Grant on the Business Wales website and the Freelancer grant checker can be found in the comments below.

    There is also an eligibility checker for the Freelancer Grant which is to provide financial assistance to freelancers in the cultural and creative sectors. This is now open for applications.
