Nothing in this profile is actualy true. Or is it? Who knows, who cares.
So I can pilot 2 VAT returns then?
once I have paid for some extra software.
pfft big 4 audit is highly profitable. I got charged out at over £60-£80/hour in the late 90's in the 2nd/3rd year. I earned less than £15/hour, even after allowing for study leave. I think after overtime is was not much over £10/hour.
The thing is consultancy is even more profitable. Ie write a report to confirm the opinion of the person asking you to write the report. See HS2.
Why do you suppose sensible legislation to reduce domestic appliance power use will be reversed?
And even it it is, why do you suppose anyone will manufacture appliances that can only be sold in the UK and waste electricity/are extra noisy?
its bizarre quite frankly that people give a stuff about the power output of their vacuum cleaners. Its such a petty thing to worry about.
I think you are going to be bitterly disappointed John about this glorious new dawn.
In other news, bears still pooping in woods
Pope in the religion business.
And we have no chance in hell of implementing major structural changes to imports in less than 6 months.
@tom, I used to work in the industrial estate down the road in my industry days. And there was always folks going up to the viewing area to watch.
Now I know who it was!
I prefered walking along the beach at lunchtime myself, especially on a windy day when the sea was up.
@Mark you are conflating two key issues
1. Are some business better off with better software?
YES. We have many clients using good software and saving heaps of time vs older methods.
2. Should ALL business (and landlords for some reason) be forced to use software whether they see any benefit from it?
The only answer to that is no.
Business should be left to make their own rational decisions. By and large all my clients who SHOULD be on cloud/other software products are on them. A couple could do with a firm kick, but most of 'em use appropriate kit.
Forcing all the ones who DONT use cloud software for good commercial reasons, to use it due to a dogmatic insistence its good for them is at best naive, but I find it quite rude and unworldly. It basically implies you think our clients who don't use cloud are imbeciles and deliberately wasting their time using efficient methods of compiling their bookkeeping. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Must admit I read it as he got off with no fine at all, that was just costs (and those halved) due to being such a jolly spiffing sort of chap who is on the council.
Dark day for the ICAEW to not clobber him.
To drive over the limit strikes of delusions of entitlement
To hit someone and not stop is a incredibly poor judgement
To try and cover it up and repeat the offence by driving 100+ miles to hide is simply unforgivable.
At the very least having got to the ex-wifes you calm down, get a taxi back to the scene of the cime and face the music having made the initial two poor decisions.
Its just a lack of basic integrity.
Its only people selling software on the back of it that seem to be keen.
And most of that vastly exaggerates the reality.
My gut reaction is they will get to the VAT a year late in April 2020, and then call it a day as all the original people have long moved on and there is just no credible justification for the project proper (ie populating tax returns quarterly) other than shifting units for the software co's.
On the other hand if you are an environmental protester you get 16 months for sitting on a lorry for a couple of days, in full knowledge of the police who basically stood there and watched them!
Its not hard to do.
Its just not profitable.
If 4 became 8 by mutual consent of the cartel, ie jumped before being pushed it would reduce the main metric partners judge themselves on. ie how many millions they have made from writing the reports they are asked to write by big business and government.
Eg EY's laughable justification for HS2, who's nose is also massively in the trough for fees on........HS2. It just seems to entrenched now they don't even try and hide it.
