Nothing in this profile is actualy true. Or is it? Who knows, who cares.
I cant see there being any value in it myself unless you are putting a huge effort into your linked in/fb/twitter etc.
I think you either do a lot of it and do it well, or have a simple static site selling your backside.
I dont think anyone cares so long as the VAT is right.
All this "digitial link" stuff is about transferring the quarterly totals from your bookkeeping system to HMRC is the bit you currently type in.
How you get to the totals is up to you, so long as its all 'digital' which in essence is "anything other than paper". O, and you can keep all the back up in paper form.
read the notice that came out on Friday.
I should point out I eat meat. I cooked a huge amount at our BBQ last weekend.
However, we do a big range of veggie options and guess what was left this year? Mainly the meat.
We started 1 deliberate veggie meal a week a couple of years ago and are up to 2 a week now, and sometimes 3.
They are well ahead of you.
About 30% in India are vegetarian or vegan, and many more are "low meat" (albeit often out of poverty)
Why do you think the veggie and side menu is so good in a decent indian restaurant?
Diets in China, India and other such countries tend to be much less meat heavy than Europe and North America.
Re "carbon dioxide is less than 1 part in 3000 of our atmosphere"
it might have been when you were a lad but its well over 400 parts per million now,one part per 2,500 and rising fast.
Its "cowboy" but pragmatic.
TBQH given the Visa issues I would just declare the lot on the 17/18 return. Tax office wont care or notice, if you had an enquiry opened into 16/17 (as if) then you could simply say tax paid in 17/18 and they should close it down for this sort of a sum.
That way there can be no "red flag" to the Mrs May's 'hostile environment' to anyone without 2 generations of UK births behind them.
The reality is if your client is paying a sum each month they will leave them alone. Suggest to your client to put (say) £1-2k down right now and put in £500 a month and whilst you wont have an official agreement, no court in the land is going to enforce seizures etc if its being paid off.
What they cant do is muck about and pay a £100 here and there and barely hit the interest.
The trouble with "muddling through" friends figures is they tend to do neither your or your friend any favours if you don't know what you are doing and your friend is relying on your for cheap/free help.
I am baffled for one why you are submitting accounts to HMRC for a period two month prior to trading commenced.
HMRC are in the business of collecting taxes. If your friend has a ridiculously small loss making small business (I assume its loss making if its App dev) which isn't going to carry on, then filing accounts is about the last thing you want to do.
There are load os people out there "exam qualified" but fit for little.
If you are going to do that route, at least go somewhere credible and not some tin-pot place, or you will be bottom of a not particularly employer friendly pile of exam qualified, no practical experience candidates.
Exams are important
Experience is important
But one without the other is no help to anyone.
