John- can you clarify your last sentence - are you saying even though reserves at the cessation date are below £25000 becuase of the final dividnd the OP will still need to appoint a liquidator because the final dividend wasnt declared prior to the cessation date [even though it might be on the same date] therefore it cant be seen to bring reserves below £25000?

It seems to be between Sage cloud and Xero. I havent actually used Sage cloud so dont know how different it is compared to sage 50 for example, but I do know the helpline for Sage is never accessible.....

Previous bookkeeper was a trainee and left a while ago. I do the accounts so agreed to pick up the slack.

Yes its sage. I have never used Sage for my own payroll clients..i use Moneysoft and find it much more intuitive. I am now aware of why sage payroll is never recommended on here. Its so convoluted. The weekly amounts vary and the net has been paid already so having to do the net to gross estimation to take account of pension contributions. Very time consuming.

Are you working for an airline? I have done a few tax returns for airline employees [they have other income too..usually rental hence the requirement to file] and their tax codes do indeed reflect an annual allowance for say uniform cleaning expenses which is why their coding is higher. Its usually a set amount. So its not that much of a coincidence if it is £250. Sounds about right to me. And yes you put the £250 in employment expenses. Boxes 17-20 i think

Yes client has confirmed it has been declared in the US return. Just wasnt sure if the DTA will enable a tax refund on the UK tax paid
