I agree with Neil, going on to fortinghtly pay won't increase the total tax NI and pension due.
It may be worth considering when you start on fortnightly pay as it will determine which tax month the payment comes in and therefore how much is due to HMRC in each tax month - how does this relate to the company's cashflow. This will depend on how large the weekly payroll is relative to the size of the business.
The other consideration is how are the employees going to cope with the change - not getting paid this week and receiving double next week could cause issues.
Why would you want to take on the legal responsibility of being an officer of the company?
Does the client in question actually need a company secretary?
Why doesn't the client want to be company secretary themselves?
There is no problem with you completing the statutory filings on behalf of the directors.
This is a forum for accounting and finance profesionals.
I suggest you talk to your accountant as you need a lesson in capital allowances to answer the first part of your question and there are tax implications that go with the second part of your question.
I agre with Paul
As the rebate is a refund of the photocopier expense, the rebate should be treated like a purchase credit note reducing the input tax rather than increasing the output tax.
The reduced input tax then goes into the partial exemption calculation.
Q1 The ageements between retailers and online advertisers that I have seen all had the advertiser as agent, so £20 unless what you have is different.
Q2 This obviously depends on what is being sold - for example are all the supplies hot food?
Q3 The flat rates are designed to give the same answer as the standard method, you'll have do do your own calculations to get an answer relevant to your client.
So you don't think John the Plumber with his smartphone is the worlds best bookkeeper?
Just remember, prepopulating 2017 tax returns with interest received was going to increase the tax take - until HMRC received less tax.
HMRC have sold MTD to the politicians on the basis that it will reduce the tax gap (at the same time telling Joe Public that it is being made compulsory because it is good for you), presumably they are expecting the errors to be in their favour.
My guess is this is overkill because someone failed to notice VAT/Net = rate
Isn't the issue that in the past you could record the VAT rate on the invoice only, it didn't have to be recorded in the sales day book, now it appears the invoices do not need to be kept as part of the digital records but the rate does.
Given HMRC's history of accurate record keeping is the problem with the latest returns filed or with the information already held by HMRC?
Is this a case of HMRC finding out the recent return does not match the existing data and assuming the problem is the latest submission? Having been told a while back by HMRC that I had my son's date of birth wrong when I was at the birth and registered his arrival to get the birth certificate issued, I am not convinced their historic data is totally accurate, I am fairly sure in his case information on a hand written form was misread when it went into the computer.
You should probably refer to Companies Act 2006 section 1200 onwards then talk to a solicitor as it sounds as though the rules may have been breached.
