Why would Ernst&Young be rummaging around the bins doing this work?

"TaxScouts, which started catering for the self-employed last summer, assigns a qualified accountant from its network to prepare the client’s tax return and offer advice about their personal income for a flat rate of £99."
Either they will be out of business in 2020 or I will be.

"Duane Jackson, the creator of KashFlow,"
In my opinion the worst software I have ever come across.
I will avoid Staffology like the plague.
The reason that we do not need 'better' payroll software is that there are lots out there that already do a great job.
APIs to our Pension providers and accounts packages have already been done.
I'm avoiding 'Payroll in the cloud' as I'm waiting for news of someone being hacked and all payment details changed.

Don't chase up Hippos until February. They get fined not you. It will teach them a valuable lesson.

Currently there is no benefit for electric cars as it is not "Fuel"
Is this the HMRC way of introducing a charge for private use of Electric Vehicles?

Thanks Tornado-so putting figures to your theory:
I work out my total known overhead & other costs for the year £10,000
The number of hours 6hrs* 5 days * 40weeks= 1200
The amount to charge to make no profit £8.33 per hour
I want to earn 200,000 so 200k/1.2k= 166.66
So I charge 175 per hour.
Possibly a problem for Payroll and Basic Book-keeping?

I'll join Xero to be a Pacesetter and earn Average Advisory Revenue for "Pacesetters" £382,700
That should give a nice boost to my average £152,689 revenue being a sole practitioner.
