I did a search before posting. The most recent discussion was back in September 2016 but there was no mention of Pandle Partners.

Before doing anything get as much good professional advice as possible. Consider joining the NCVO https://www.ncvo.org.uk/ or you may have a local association of voluntary organisations that can help. They can advise on the best way forward and how to get there after considering ALL the facts. Using the wrong structure could prove very costly.

I agree that it doesn’t deliver value to anyone. My original post posed the question “Am I wrong to be bothered” and you obviously believe I am. I, on the other hand, believe that if I’ve been engaged to prepare and submit accounts that conform to the requirements of the Companies Act that is what I should be doing. If we are to be free to determine what laws we do need to conform to and which ones we can ignore because we don’t feel that they “deliver value” then the result is anarchy. If the law requires that the balance sheet contains a particular statement then that is the requirement.

Thank you for this information. The Companies House web site filing system does, in fact, include the words "and delivered" in the statement about preparing the accounts in accordance with the small companies regime. Taxfiler doesn't do this yet but I assume their developers will make this amendment if any accounts are rejected in the future.
Another problem with Taxfiler is that there is no way to remove the Accountants Report from the filleted accounts. Surely this isn't required by the small companies regime.

What a time waster
Filled a few of these in for new companies opening bank accounts but just had to complete one for a Bowls & Social club with a turnover less than £1k, incorporated in the 1940s and with the same bank account for over 20 years!! Obviously posing a great threat to the USA.

I understand this is part of the United States Excessive Legislative Economic State Security.

Thanks for all the advice. I was only considering the case where the client is a single director company with no other employees, the DLA more than covers the annual drawings and the director prefers to make one salary payment in March and one PAYE payment. It appears then that the only way is to call the helpline, I was just hoping that there was an online option

Agent or principle
Are you sure you are acting as principle and not as agent.
Quote "I will act as a principle as I will deal with the clients before departure and ensure the accommodation is to a certain standard."
This alone does not mean you are a principle. If you are selling the accommodation on behalf of the owner then the TOMS scheme will not apply.

You have to understand farming and produce accounts that mean something to farmers. That includes preparing accounts with gross margins for livestock ( cattle, sheep, etc) crops (wheat, barley, potatoes etc) with related input costs of feed, fertiliser, seeds, vets, haulage etc as well as usual overheads etc.
You will have to know related costs to compare to an owned farm or a rented farm, work out average costs per hectare, average yields per hectare, average prices per crop per tonne, kilos per animal. Work out subsidies due, advise on claims to be made. For tax you must know farmers averaging calculations, capital allowances on silage pits, temperature controlled potato stores etc
And don't forget livestock records for animal movement licences, fallen stock, electronic tagging, use of veterinary medicines, withdrawal periods, soil management, application of herbicides and pesticides, feed conversion rates for breeding programmes, single farm payment, basic farm payment scheme, cross compliance - the list goes on. Oh and also different systems for England, Scotland and Wales!
As Howlin Wolf said, good luck.

Yes, having re-read your post it is, thank you. What puzzles me is why Sage help doesn't suggest doing this instead of the complicated procedure that they advocate.
