Why does this profession never stop bleating? Anything that puts cash in client's bank accounts is positive and helps them to pay our fees. Without furlough and the SEISS in particular I fear many clients would not have been able to pay their accountant.

Do the self-employed earning less than their personal allowances qulaify for the grant? I have a cleaner earning circa £9,000 per annum, no other incoem so pays no tax

Do we know whether the calculation of SE profits will be net of any CAs/AIA? I assume HMRC will work on the taxable SE incoem for each year, but just wondered

mall Business Grant Fund (SBGF) – £10,000 available to those eligible for the small business rate relief scheme or rural rate relief scheme– essentially firms occupying properties with a rateable value of less than £15,000.
Should this read £51,000?

We have an equal number of male and female chartered accountants paid at the same hourly rate. We also have a female administrator paid at a lower rate, hence we have a gender pay gap. Are we pay administrators the same as chartered accountants to close the gap?
The female administrator is due to retire, if her replacement is male we will have a gender pay gap in favour of women.
The gender pay gap conclusions, based on current calculation methods, is of no more use that inaccurate bookkeeping.

I agree with Rebecca that VAT registered business are in the best position to submit quarterly figures, but must be able to use their VAT quarters, not quarters run form their year-end date. The latter would require accountants and bookkeepers to work twice per quarter rather than once or
re-stagger clients VAT quarters to fall in line with quarterly filing. Changing the VAT quarters would lead to a very large number of businesses being required to file for the June Sept, Dec and March quarters.
I would make the VAT threshold the threshold for quarterly filing with smaller concerns being required to file quarterly later, when the system has settled down.
One concern with the proposes £10,000 threshold. If a business is marginally under the threshold at 5 April 2017, they may well exceed it early in 2017/18. Will they be exempt from quarterly filing in the year they breach the threshold? And the reverse once in quarterly filing can they leave if turnover falls below the proposed £10,000
