Well said Marlinman!
Been there, done that, sold the business, looking after 20 ish small jobs now. Life is wonderful! Hope you reach that stage too!
I hope that you don't actually run your practice like that, Philip. I certainly don't run mine that way. Invoice with the work.
Disappointing attitude but typical of this sad country. Treat the workers like dirt. Only provide for them when forced. When oh when will we learn, understand and apply good working relationships? As a nation we are a disgrace.
Who wrote that headline? What does"snuck" mean. Who demeaned this excellent professional service in such a manner? Hang your head in shame accountingweb!
Thanks, Janet, huge, huge help! Much appreciated!
I remember the tax case very well especially because of the "beneficial" effect that it had for one of my firm's clients. At the time I was a partner in a small practice in south Manchester. Some time previously we had been approached by an acquaintance of one of my partners because he was having problems with his tax office over a claim to PPR relief. Eventually the Inspector agreed that relief was due.
When one of this client's friends found himself on the wrong side of the tax man he ended up with us to deal with matters. It was a classic case of the Inspector having obtained a piece of information and jumped to totally the wrong conclusion and not prepared to accept evidence to the contrary.
The same partner as before had been to at least one Commissioners meeting and was geared up for what was to be the final hearing where The Revenue would ram home there conclusions and demands. On the Wednesday the previously bumptious and stubborn Inspector telephoned most sheepishly almost begging to settle. We were happy to do so as it was clear that there was nothing in the case. It transpired that the Inspector found himself double booked. He was due in court on the same day, the Friday, to give evidence in Doddy's case and couldn't wriggle out. Justice? We certainly thought so and we enjoyed the irony.
