We've seen similar things. Furlough should be limited to hospitality and entertainment sectors now.
I sincerely hope that any company whose turnover increased during the pandemic is made (either legally or shamed into it) to repay CJRS monies.

Emails can be easily misinterpreted, I agree. But everyone is under pressure; some people are just chancers. The client has never paid the OP on time, which speaks volumes. And his follow-up email is laughable - "tell me how to do your job myself"?

I use Moneysoft as it is cheaper than Brightpay, but i like better Brightpay.
What I struggle with on Moneysoft is uploading monthly CIS payments.
Interested to know what exactly you are struggling with? We use Moneysoft and have 50+ CIS clients.

I was an Icesave saver. Thanks to the FSCS I got all my money back when they went bust. Their problems were entirely unrelated to being online only - after all, bricks-and-mortar Northern Rock almost went the same way.

HMRC has announced:
"that Self Assessment customers will not receive a penalty for filing their 2019-20 tax return late, as long as they file online by 28 February. We are still encouraging customers who have not yet filed to do so by 31 January, if possible.
Customers still need to pay their Self Assessment tax bill by 31 January. Interest will be charged from 1 February on any outstanding liabilities. "

We won't take on PP clients cos we had so many issues with it.
I charge a one-off £150 for setting up a NEST scheme and completing the Declaration of Compliance.
Our monthly payroll fee includes a small amount to cover pension processing.

Today we can't download PAYE notices through payroll, and agent online was running like treacle.

Totally agree. I'm sick of CJRS being seen as free money by greedy [email protected]. Too many of our clients have the other half on payroll solely to use their personal tax allowance AND claim the Employment Allowance. That's bad enough, but to then furlough them for a year?
It's just taking the p!ss.

We unfortunately have several variable weekly payrolls, including our largest client which is pubs/restaurants.
We always process them over the festive period. Some of them shut down and so we get the payroll in advance, but the pub/restaurant one is always done as normal.
Estimates may be ok in some sectors, but it's important to remember that many people - probably now more than ever - are receiving Universal Credit. The RTI data we send to HMRC is linked to DWP systems and directly affects Universal Credit calculations and payments.

Yep, we've had a couple of those. We effectively told the client, "you are the boss, not them; get a grip on your staff!"
