Contract vs permanent role. As a contractor you were happy and achieving targets. As a permanent you are less than happy and been given more work than you can achieve in the working day. I think you have answered your own question. Get your priorities right - work is important but family life is just as important. The world of Accountancy has peaks and troughs but your peaks seem to be overwhelming at the moment and needs to be addressed. Contracting is different to being a permanent employee, have a conversation with your boss and gently point out that you are working x hours extra at the moment to keep up with workload but it cannot continue, can you bank this time to have off at a later date etc or come to some other compromise.. good luck

Thank you everyone, I just thought I had read somewhere that the business had to show it had decreased it's prices by 20% when it de-registered for VAT.
But then could find no reference to it, I had a niggle that I might be missing something.

Time & patience! Re-do your CV focusing on your achievements and show progression within your current role. Have a good Linkedin profile and then phone up recruiters and actually speak to them, build up a relationship, so you're the prime candidate for something that comes up in your area in your desired salary bracket. It's easy to become disheartened but refocus all your energies and priorities into this job search ...

Interesting topic, hopefully more employers will open up the possibility of flexible hours and part time hours. Speaking as one who has run their own Accountancy practice for many years and worked flexibly, there are so many advantages. Dentist appointments, or going to see your kids in the school play etc.. but you make up those hours by working early or late another time as ong as the job gets done and deadlines are met. But flexible working in a larger organisation needs to be visibly seen as fair to all, I think a lot of it is done on trust... but just because you are in the office from 9am to 5pm every week doesn't necessarily you are being productive for all of those hours .. Accountancy is a world of peaks and troughs and speaking as one who is looking for a part-time role but being blocked by the mindset that full time hours are essential, I am hoping that times will change! more flexible part time working please!

I think payments made to the Director should be disclosed in section 3, Directors remuneration on the CIC34 form as it would not be showing on the accounts ...

Interesting question, It really depends on what they are offering and if this is the direction you want to be taking. But don't sell yourself short, 50/50 partnership - make good money from whatever you do!

I'm finding the CT600 very difficult to navigate, I have put the mortgage interest in box 260 which feeds into box 295 and 795. The UK property loss is in box 805.
Can anyone please advise if this is correct?

Could you explain the difference between cost of the property and non trading loan relationship? I've only dealt with people owning rental properties before, this is the first time I've prepared accounts for one owned by a limited company.
I use BTC software to prepare the CT600 returns and they have a property page, actually looking at it now, it is a property worksheet and doesn't form part of the CT600 return although the figures are pulled from it to go on the CT600. Hence the question about mortgage interest ..

Ditto, I would pay proportional.
I would think the clause is in place so that if she left on 31st August you couldn't make an adjustment to reclaim her pay for the summer holidays but that is not the case here, her leaving date is mid-month .. in fact you may owe her holiday pay?
