A progressive, South West based accountancy practice

Marketing

We have been active members of Plymouth Business Network for over 18 months now, and picked up a lot of work (Over £18K) with more in the pipeline. This one is much more informal (and therefore more fun and focussed) than others I have visited. Have a look at www.plymouthbusinessnetwork.co.uk and see for yourself.

We have also been developing strategic alliances with providers of high quality tax planning solutions. Contact us and I’ll come and chat through the ideas to see if any can be applied to your particular tax issues.

News about HMRC

HMRC are keeping us busy, as always. We have seen the usual diet of incorrect demands, and irritating enquiries over the summer. They seem to churn out demands by computer, and never stop to check them first. We are now challenging a demand issued after we filed a return using the figures they provided over the phone three months ago!

The lesson is “check every piece of HMRC correspondence and ask us to look at it if you think it’s incorrect (because it probably is!)

They have launched a task force aimed at the motor trade in the south west, so if you have any friends or colleagues who may be at risk, let them know, and ask them to come and see us. We might be able to save them a whole heap of stress.

Client news

A number of my clients have found themselves with spare cash in their business, and we have developed tax efficient ways to extract it for them. Contact us if you are in a similar position; there is no charge for the initial consultation.
