Thank you for highlighting Acombi Limited - somehow it makes the pointless accounting we do worthwhile. Do have a read if you haven't done so already!
Given that you are paying Sage a lot of money for their software, I would moan long and hard at Sage Support.
I use PDFMate PDF Converter. Not very intuitive (you have to make a PDF of a PDF(!)), but it works and is free...
I agree password protected files aren't very secure, but they're better than nowt
Given the problems with the 737 Max's, will we be seeing write-downs in the fixed assets? Somehow I doubt it.
A lot of solicitors will provide the first meeting for free so you can see if your old employer has a case. I did this when I wanted some advice on being made compulsorily redundant.
Do you know something we don't? Is Brexit Day now 05/04/2020?
Yes it is dynamic, April AND November :)
Is company B paying company A for the tax losses? If so, you need to account for the debtor & creditor.
Same for me. Looks ugly but works.
I also deal with deposits.
1) Deposit received in bank
Cr Accrued Income (B/S)
2) When holiday letting completed
Dr Accrued Income
Cr Sales (P&L)
You can only take the income once the holiday let has been satisfactorily fulfilled. If a deposit has to be repaid before then, it's Dr Accrued Income, Cr Cash with the repayment
My understanding of the HMRC rules, is that when your client becomes subject to VAT, the Output VAT has to be accounted for when the deposit is received (i.e. stage 1 above)
