We use 22" widescreen from lyama Prolite
Dont go for cheap get good screens with at least 1920 x 1080 pixels. Also if your machine does not have it you will need a dual screen display card.
Windows 10 allows you to split the view on one screen so if you prefer you could get a single much larger screen and split it.
Lastly dont forget that you will have to lift the screens off the desk to eye height or may get back and other problems

An interesting dilemma. Not withstanding what the esteemed David Winch has advised you may want to consider your position. There has been critism that accountants are not sending in enough SARs. This apperas to based on pure numbers not on the contents.
So I always submit a SAR in cases where there is a failure to pay the tax on time and a correct tax retrurn has not been submitted

Do it the amazon way. Up front every time.
We have monthly billing we used Practice Ignition. The changeover was the most stressing for cashflow.
However we still have one-off projects that are billed in arrear.
We tell every client it is a 12 month minimum period thereafter a months notice

Just asked HMRC this question and spoke with a knowledgeable lady. It can all be done on line but you will need the UTR. Ours is for a newly formed company so we await hearing from HMRC with this info
The lady said register the client as for PAYE and an option should appear asking about CIS follow this and the registration for CIS will followthis.

Yep but this guy/girl wants to keep his job. And this may be the reason that his boss can cause him to look the other way. The advice about an audit trail and copy to private email account not connected to the business is essentail.
I dont think you have much of a choice if you carry on you could be assisting with a fraud. If you leave you have to find a new post.
I feel that you will have to go down the second option eventually. Are you in a position to get a transfer to the parent company? If it were me I would be looking to get out asap.

RE Paul Benny comment that you cant roll up please see working examples at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/calculating-holiday-pay-for-w...
This working example brings in the 12.07% back into play. Indeed I cant see any other way of dealing withit. The other examples expect some sort of regularity but if you have a person who works only when you need them or only when they want to work the examples excluding the 12.07% dont work.
My example above may cover a married women with children and may be a second job. If the children are sick or off school for another reson inc holidays and training days the Mum cant work other days to catch up.
Well done policitians both in the UK and EU for not thinking the problem thoroughly.

Is this not how money laundering starts? Paying money into an account that does not belong to the owner....

My concern would be that as he was a builder and thus building this dwelling whether he could show he was building a house for himself. Did any of the parts of the part build show in his businesss records, did he use the company account to buy the materials. Hopefully none of the build costs had a business vat reclaim.
I susupect in the end it will be how the records stack up and whether HMRC will look into the transation further.
From my perspective the continue building although for another adds weight to the "trading" argument.
