I’d send our clients a letter but they won’t read them and will just ring to ask what it’s all about anyway so easier to just explain on the telephone!

Good - given that someone who has worked all their life, paid taxes and contributed to society is then hounded for further taxes while six foot under I'd delighted Doddy had the last laugh. I live approx 400 yards from his house so I may even walk past with the dog this evening and give him a final thumbs up from a local accountant!

Your response absolutely sums up our practice also!

Exactly - I'd love some of these idiots to spend a week in my practice dealing with real world clients. They'd soon stop implementing these daft changes when seeing how real business works

When we 'dared' to recommend using our own Umbrella company instead of the agency one they became a tad hostile toward our locum client and us. To settle it we had complete a questionnaire which would be reviewed - surely if an agency (like all of them) isn't willing to pay a PSC they should allow the locum to choose any umbrella company? Must be some backhanders being made this month!

Nightmare this for us - we'll be losing around 15 clients. We even tried to start up a subsidary to the practise to trade only as an Umbrella so we can keep these locums - basically the agencies only want them to use the Umbrellas they recommend however.
Hate these changes!!

Our practise ensures that clients receive a prompt reply either by phone or e-mail therefore live chat isn't a) necessary or b) practical. Possibly for bigger firms were clients have to wait hours for a reply!

See your point

Implying that anyone who chose to work on Christmas day (because of knowing they could work undisturbed, because they don't observe Christmas or whatever) has a serious problem does not come across as funny. That's the problem with working with just text. We can only go by the words posted, and to me they read as judgemental and condescending. If you want to indicate you are just joking, there are ways of doing that (smileys for example). If you don't, then later protestations that you were "only joking" don't really help. Your response still makes it look like you consider those who chose to work on Christmas have a problem so it really doesn't seem likely you were joking in the first place.bigmuggsy wrote:Ha it was just a joke, come on don't be taking the comment too serious.
Yep see your point. Those who work Christmas Day don't have a problem.

Don't take it too serious....
Ha it was just a joke, come on don't be taking the comment too serious. And there's a bit of a difference between putting one post on accounting web over the Christmas period and filing tax returns. You never know they're might be accountants out there who read my reply, turned their laptop off and had a tax free Christmas!

Any one who has been very active and filing tax returns over the festive period need to have a good look at themselves and try and get a life. Our practice is back open 5th Jan not one tax return will even be remotely observed before this date
