Along with a fair proportion of the country at the moment, we watch Poldark. My wife is a particular fan, no idea why..
A CIMA veteran shares his perspective on what the profession holds for those working in industry.
For the first time since RTI came in, I seemed to manage not to submit the FPS from Sage in February. I only have one payroll (ie our company).
All my life I have known about things being 'offshore' and tax havens - for about as long as I could reliably separate the Isle of Man from the Isle of Wight. I never (as a child /young adult) really thought what that meant - just knew it was a 'thing'.
Just a quick post today - I had been putting off getting new reading glasses for ages. My previous pair were the first I had ever needed, and were quite a low strength. It is only now I have got the new glasses I discover how bad my eyes had got.

The show takes up the entire NEC, and is for retail buyers.
I often find myself, during holiday times, fixing up all the 'home' IT. I am not, by any means, an early adopter - much more of a make do and mend person. Hence, whilst I possess (at the last count) three desktop computers and one laptop they all actually run windows vista.
