Self Assessment

I was just doing some agent housekeeping and I noticed a couple of clients (married to each other) who were not on my client list although they have been on the list for the past 18 months.


One of my clients who pays personal tax in the US and the UK wants to appoint a UK-based firm to deal with his US personal tax affairs.


I wonder if anyone can help regarding claimable expenses for an unusual self employed prospective client I have just spoken with. He appears to be turning a hobby into a business.



Auto enrolment, online payroll and the new UK GAAP are adding to accountants’ stress levels as they look forward to 2015.

Husband & wife jointly claimed tax credits. In 2003/04, they were overpaid approx. £4K.


Can anyone suggest a suitable bonus scheme to reward a senior manager within an accountancy practice?

Thoughts and advice welcome


I had prepared some accounts for a new client - he waited until accounts were due before getting an accountant - and he had a few questions.


A and B trade in partnership.  A owns the property from which the partnership trades.  Market rent is paid to A in respect of the occupation of the property.
