We pay for Lasspass enterprise and we have had none of the issues mentioned about the server.
Like all companies, they probably take more care of paid clients. There is no such thing as a free lunch

Firstly what a great article, so glad to see you and accounting web have covered the circular economy.
I have a huge interest in this as my husband is part owner of Weee Solutions Ltd by Glasgow Airport. They are currently working to change processes to help circular economy with the help of The Institute of Re Manufacture and Zero waste Scotland . As you will know
you will know Glasgow and Edinburgh are working extremely hard to push the circular economy as our other cities.
How ever I feel a lot of business do not understand the circular economy. If people would like to read more about it can I recommend the following as a useful resource or they would like to help the clients look into the circular economy. I would like to recommend the following.
Zero Waste 18 million https://circularglasgow.com/investment fund
The Institute of Remanufacture Scotland
Business should take good expertise advice for their R&as claim as well.
Any business can sign up to the newsletter extremely helpful.

There is nothing wrong with working from home for those who love it, however, there are plenty of people who benefit from going to work and meeting people. My clients can pop into the office whenever they want if we are not having a meeting and this has brought us lots of work over the years and good conversations.
I was always brought up the better you dress and look the better you feel and work. It is so easy not to bother when you work from home and having done both I need my office for discipline.
I don,t get the argument that you cannot do other things. I, for example, go to the local pool behind the office for a swim for a few hours and start early. I need to do this for my back. Some of my colleagues come in later 11.30.
We always have a meeting Lunch or good chat at lunchtime. My company policy is no one ever misses a school event for their kids. Also working at an office has not stopped any of us going to the dentist that is about health. If you can,t go the dentist or doctor then that says more about the company you work for.
I love interaction every day with my business centre and my colleagues. I think you can become a hermit over time and lack social skills. Personally, unless you are hermit, working from home is okay but I personally do not think it is good for your wellbeing long term. I believe you are isolating herself from the everyday world.
We all see people less as we get older. I appreciate it is a personal view but I don,t think that is a good thing.
There a lot of things company directors could do in the office workplace to make it a nice place to work.

Can you please leave accountancy manager alone. I used to use workflow max till Xero IT guys who did not seem to grasp day to day needs. They got their hands on it and in my view destroyed it. I lost so many hours have spent time on Workflow then to find it unusable.
Xero payroll is nowhere as good as MYPAYE Ltd for payroll and whilst I think Xero is excellent at some things. My clients go absolutely nuts about how insufficient the purchase ledger is. The purchase ledger is the reason I cannot convert more clients.
I am not knocking Xero in particular as other software all have their issues. I am just not prepared to worship Xero or any of them when they all have a lot of work too.
No competition is not healthy nor is worshipping a company.

Liveplan is not a software to advise you how to have a successful practice. It is a great piece of forecasting and sales pitch software that can bring in funding to a business.
It is a very useful piece of software and I have had clients use it well on our recommendation for tenders or pitches.

I have used Liveplan for quite a few clients and Kathy Gregory supplies good advice when you sign up.
The software is excellent for pitching and tendering and making your client focus on the pitch as well as the figures. In fact, the pitching side is where I feel Liveplan excel and make the business think.
It is an excellent piece of software and I advise you just sign up directly and just get on with using it. All my clients who are fairly tech found it easy to use.
I had them sign up but you can be a partner which I am not writing off in the future.

So many things wrong with this. So they automatically pull invoices from suppliers . The likes of BT , Heat and Light companies , mobile extra. Never overcharge not.
So it just blindly puts Credits cards in no checking and no checking of bill. This month I have 5 bills sent to my company incorrectly out of 10. All find errors in company credit cards.

I received a email from James Reeves last night responding to my concern on Iris. So firstly I appreciate that James.
It was a good email and I felt genuine. I really do hope James I am proved wrong that Taxfiler was not purchased to kill competition.
As others have said the minute I think Iris is doing a Iris on Taxfiler unfortunately we will have no choice but to leave.
Perhaps Iris should learn from this how low their now customers think of them.
