I use Moneysoft PM and have done for years. I like the dated look, as a simple GUI usually means the software works quicker. PM is also less than half the price of BrightPay for our requirements.
The directors of the company brought him to a meeting regarding the potential investment and I stated to all three that he should not just lend the money but ask for more. It was mutually agreed regarding directorship and shareholding.
Done the 'Biff and Kipper' explanation to no avail, maybe I need to go 'Janet and John'.
With regards the deal, I actually helped him. I ensured that he was made a director and shareholder and recommended the 6 months notice for repayment to protect him. I also informed him that on all decisions the other two can outvote him making him little more than a 'sleeping partner' but he still signed and paid the money over.
Point 1. Did this over the weekend. I doubt if I get a response, he calls them his solicitors but I get the impression that he has only met them once or twice to put a letter together to the other directors which I was copied into.
Point 2. Agreed. The latest I heard is that the other two directors have offered in writing to repay the £50,000 over 3 years with no personal guarantees. If this is rejected I don't think they will have any option but to go into administration, then the fun will really start.
Point 3. The money came from a 6 figure medical insurance claim so no problem with money laundering.
It will depend on a few things regarding the tax year 19/20. I advise he sees a tax consultant and pay for professional advice.
I'm with you Richard. I'm wearing shorts (tailored not beach shorts) and deck shoes. Client feedback is that it is more than acceptable as I still look professional (no I didn't shave my legs!). All the staff have been told the same, polo shirts and tailored/chino shorts are acceptable in this weather. Denim, ripped or outlandish shorts aren't.
As the dental nurse is not legally contracted to your self employed dentist, I can't see how the payment for travel to employed work when employed by a third party can ever by allowable. Travel costs to and from one place of work isn't allowed. The only solution would be if the employer of the nurse increases her wage to cover the additional travel costs with your client invoicing less so the employer isn't out of pocket. But what makes you think the dental nurse will use this money to get the train? If the employer isn't censuring the nurse for her continual tardiness now why should she change?
If I remember correctly, a recipient of carers allowance cannot be a director of a company and salary should be under £110 per week. Dividends are taken into consideration. Remember the National Living Wage or the National Minimum Wage will apply to your wife.
