Oh dear, did someone get caught out by this scam?
Is Eric Pickles still shown.
I suppose you would just call it advertising.
This was in Royal Lytham St Annes - maybe they have caught onto something :)
Thanks - I can see this turning into similar to Amazon, where the paperwork is never quite right - and the provider says "well, we don't offer a service to businesses".
I will check with the department that books the hotels and report back!
I can't recall seeing VAT totals on any of the supplier statements we get?
(standard manufacturing setup)
Depends on context. With 300+ employees (as in a previous employment) I would always work the same way, deducting days if required.
If I just had one employee at once, then I can imagine paying a full month in a lot of cases.
I always use 260 for part months worked.
There are some weird times of the year, (I had someone leave on 30th May one year, and (because of weekends etc) the days worked would have equated to more than a standard 1/12 of the year. In that case I deducted one day instead.
I agree with the others, I don't do any working back calculations to see the total number of days worked in a period.
After all, when does everyone's years start and end.
Would you need to base it on a calculation relating to the date the employee started working for you?
What about leap years?
At least by always using 260 I don't have to try and remember too much if someone asks a question down the line.
Don't forget, if you are deducting it via payroll, it comes from net pay not gross.
Yes, to a point, but more applicable where vat is charged that should not have been - rather than it's omission.
I have had several small suppliers do this, as "there is no VAT on stamps"..
Just put the invoice through to match what you are given.
I expect the employee felt just as aggrieved at the accusation as you have when it came back to you.
A difficult situation all round, but probably best to leave it.
