NOt according to the small print, if the same business has more than one premises they are still only getting one grant.

The situation is slightly different in Scotland.
The grants have to be applied for, and the claim forms went live 2 days ago.
The promise is that the grants will be paid in 10 days.
Most of my clients have been quick off the mark and have already applied!

The issue I have with the whole employment allowance, not able to reclaim SSP from HMRC any more is that very small businesses like myself and a couple of my clients who only have 1 or 2 employees do not have the amount of Employers NIC to cover the full Allowance.
However we still have to pay out SSP, so if an employee is off for up to the full SSP entitlement period we are out a lot of money with no payback.

I signed up for QBOA but am finding the customer service abysmal. I have been in touch with so many individuals trying to find out about migrating clients' data from Sage 50 version 24 with no success.

Trialing it, not too happy
I undertook the demo on Tuesday, it looked great, I only want it for the practice management module including staff time tracking and calculating client invoices.
I only have 11 clients and 3 part time members of staff so I thought the setup would be easy.
So far I have spent 5 hours setting up clients, import only took over basic details and I still do not have the deadlines imported as there is not enough information in the help screen as to the data settings. For example I have entered the client names, the last submission date for VAT Return and accounts, saved the downloaded template and when I try to import it into Capium the file is rejected as the dates are not valid. How can dates be invalid, I checked the setting in the excel sheet and the date field is set as date.
In the demo I was shown you could enter your client's name and registration number and all the data was imported from Companies House, in the live system - not possible.
I would hate to be trying to set up any more clients. I have been desperate for this style of system but I do not know if I can live with it. We currently use Toggl Desktop for tracking the time everyone spends on tasks for each client and I use the reports for the payroll and the client invoicing and a whiteboard on the office wall for VAT Return reminders and year end reminders. This may remain the default setting.
