I was asked by a reader to give details of something really useful I'd seen at Accountex - and what did come out was the number of tools for doing "financial things" online.
The Financial Controller's Diary
A Financial Controller in a hi-tech small business writes about the trials of running a finance department...
I decided (with CP's permission) to take a day out of the office last week and go to Accountex at the ExCEL.
HR seems to be taking over my role these days.
CP said to me last week, “It’s time to think about recruiting again. We need to look at finding one or two new programmers. But a lot of the good programmers out there have their own businesses already.”
That’s a conundrum.
The comments to my post last week got me thinking.
The HR documents provider came up trumps last month and produced a set of templates in plain English. That was a relief.
My column here has been a bit quiet for the past two weeks. It feels like I’ve spent most of that two weeks on the phone to HMRC.
If you're not a Harry Potter fan then apologies. Professor Trelawney is the Divination teacher who tries to predict the future but actually only manages to get it right twice.
I've taken the very helpful advice posted here and pushed back to the HR documents provider to ask them to re-write the contracts etc in plain English. I need to be able to understand them and so does everyone else here, present and future.
Having sat and listened to the budget on Wednesday, at first I thought we were on to a good thing with the Employment Allowance.
So thanks to Klandrews' warning on last week's posting, I decided to make sure that not only did I have all the information I needed to operate RTI for our incoming business development director, we had all the right paperwork in place for HR.
