Gosh, you must have been on a legacy price. I’ve been paying £18 per month since signing up, but sincerely hope that this price does not double - not had any notification of an increase yet.
It is possible to switch between practice and commerce, but it may take you longer to qualify.
I started in practice, moved to a small business, then went back into practice for the final set of exams.
Whilst working in the business, I was only paid for a 4-day week, although they did pay for the ACCA course at my local college. I had no mentor there either, so had to do a lot of extra reading and work on my own.
So don’t suffer where you are working now, and also take a look at some smaller practices as they can be less stuffy.
What about telling her that you have developed an allergy to dogs? And that the antihistamine you need to control it prevents you from driving as it makes you sleepy.
HMRC are only contacting the clients now, not the agents. After a couple of stressful unannounced VAT visits to our restaurant clients, we sent round a checklist to all clients advising them of what to do if this happened to them, and the rights they have.
HMRC seem to be bypassing agents wherever possible now, and to date we have received no information or feedback on either of their client premises visits.
You do realise that MOD reimburse for any travel to assessment and training facilities? And that all food is supplied? And kit?
I’m not sure what you can claim for for any one going through forces training as almost everything is supplied. And I’m pretty sure that getting a tax refund comes very low on a junior recruit’s priorities.
Why can’t you just do manual entries based on the prior year accounts? Yes, you won’t have all the information you would get from a full TB, but it would give you a starting point.
The club could indeed have records that HMRC could use as a basis to estimate income as they often charge the dancers a nightly fee. It’s usually a fixed fee, supposedly to cover use of dressing room, stage, security, music etc.
She could end up out of pocket if her takings are low on a quiet session. Some dancers work 2 or 3 clubs a day/night in the hope of always finding the busiest one.
I would emphasis how the expenses she can claim for can bring down her taxable income. That might encourage her to keep some receipts at least.
Sigh. If you ask for free advice please have the good grace to acknowledge that you might be doing something wrong.
You are acting as though you are a sole trader, rather than a company. Different, and much tighter, rules apply to companies.
You may regret not paying the £100 pm in the long run.
Should be square footage surely? If the bedrooms and kitchen will not be used at all for the business, then those rooms must therefore be solely for private use.
Are they not allowing the staff to make a cuppa though?
But who would want to sit around for the rest of the day with oily hair? I don’t think the Brylcreem look has resurfaced again just yet.
