I use Chrome and the authorisation screen appeared OK. Sorry I can't explain why it worked for me though. Normally I am unlucky on these things.
I am also using Sage50Cloud, v25, and I had to go through authorisation again in May even though I had already done it in April. I didn't feel like calling Sage to find out why - the helpline wait is usually around 50 minutes to an hour!
There are definitely career counsellors out there, but as I starting point I recommend an excellent resource called careershifters dot org. Their website is full of really inspiring stories from people who have changed careers, including where they went wrong and how they decided what to change to. Lots of advice from career change advisors too.
I am nearly ready to begin. I'm going to cut my hours as soon as I am clear of the hive-down I'm working on so I can work on my own project while still paying the bills. Good luck, I hope you find something that feels right for you. Just don't wait 20 years like I did
Absolutely Paul, and we are going to honour the agreement made between the employee and the hiring manager. I can look into the taxable car option although (wearing 2 hats and rushed off my feet - typical small business) I may just take the easy route and explain that his mileage payments will be taxed!
Yes, I had been by some of the examples in 490, in which the length of time *was* indefinite, but the key difference was (in the examples) this was not the intention from the outset. I've got my head round it now and I agree, he has 3 permanent workplaces so the payments are taxable.
Sorry I meant the contract is silent on the payment of expenses.... but I see what you mean, and I think you are right.
Re-reading HMRC 490 I can see that all the examples use the words "Edward is SENT....", "Fred is SENT...." indicating that the situation changed after the engagement commenced. And that is the key. Thank you. I will pay him as agreed between him and his hiring manager, but it will be taxable.
Yes, I understand and agree. However they are very good at charging large amounts and telling us nothing, and the director has asked me to use them as little as possible, so I thought I'd try here first. We do have some very experienced people on here who can point out the one thing you missed that makes it all clear. But we do need to change accountants, in my opinion. I am qualified, but everyone needs help sometimes, and I can't get it, at least not at a price we can afford. (They are London specialists who are quick to rack up the costs)
Thanks Landscaper, that's really useful. Particularly your description of the payslip and the fact that it was approved. Last time I was told that acknowledging the pre-sacrifice salary on the payslip would invalidate the sacrifice!
Thanks Manchester_man. I guess things have moved on. I'd be most grateful for your templates - thank you
