On review of the work prepared for a client by their bookkeeper, we uncovered missing interest claims over the past 3 years which enabled us to save in excess of £3,000 in corporation tax.
A client has estimated that by using Xero they have saved themselves over 20 hours per month by streamlining their accounting processes. If you could use some extra time (and who couldn’t!) come and have a chat.
Over the last month Rachael has been trialling a brand new way of communicating our great ideas to a wider audience.
A brand new ’app’ called Periscope, released just three months ago, enables live recording and broadcasting via mobile phone. The app was bought by twitter prior to release, since they could see its enormous potential. Their confidence was well founded – Periscope has gone wild!
On Budget Day we ‘scoped’ a ground-breaking first broadcast to viewers worldwide. As the chancellor spoke, Andy relayed relevant parts of the speech to Steve, who commented on the relevance to business owners, and non-business owners alike. Via periscope they were able to ask questions to Rachael (behind camera most of the time!) who relayed them to Steve. Simultaneously, Beth – our social media manager – was tweeting the questions and answers. It worked brilliantly, and we had a great response!
As a result of this, The Evening Herald, BBC Spotlight, and Radio Devon were all in contact with us here at Numbers. We think it might have been a UK first, and we are pleased to show that – once again – we are at the cutting edge of our profession in many ways.
We plan to use Periscope to broadcast live regularly. Watch this space, and our social media platforms, for more news on our upcoming scopes!
By reorganising the share structure in a family business Andy enabled our clients to draw a further £15,000 per year tax free
By reviewing the capital allowances available for a new company we have managed to change their tax position so that they received a refund in excess of £900 rather than paying anything to the tax man. That’s always good news!
After discussing a client’s goals for 2015, and considering the financial & tax positions associated with those goals, we have helped to find a manageable way for the family to buy a new tractor for their farm!
