As my business grew, CRASL supported me. Taking on an employee for the first time, having to setup payroll and a pension through NEST appeared daunting, but CRASL made it really easy and handled pretty much everything for me.

Each month, I just send through my payroll information by email and in no time at all, I get back all the information I need, how much to pay HMRC and a digital payslip to provide to my employees.

Being a local company, I can just pop round whenever I need to, to sign my accounts or get any help or advice I need.

I just wanted to say how very pleased I am to have had the opportunity to change my accounting affairs to CRASL.

You have made it all suddenly seem so very simple; with your friendly assistance, my Self Assessment has been submitted without hassle and your account I settled with the greatest of pleasure!

It was particularly helpful that you visited me in my home, where everything was at hand, rather than previously having to put everything in the post.

I shall look forward to our meeting again next year.

I’ve been lucky enough that Martin and his team have been doing my accounts for nearly 15 years now. They’ve taken me from a new sole trader, through vat registration, limited company status and all the legal and financial stuff that comes with running a growing business. I like dealing with the CRASL team, I’ve always found them to be fair, true and very responsive. They take the stuffiness out of accounting, I love it!

⚠️⚠️ Beware of this FAKE PayPal text message ⚠️⚠️

⁣At first glance, it may look like a PayPal link, but on closer inspection, it clearly directs to a different domain. ⁣
⁣The text alerts you to an important unread message, and that you have an issue that you need to resolve with your PayPal account. ⁣
⁣If you click the link as requested, a fake PayPal webpage opens in your smartphone's browser. The website then asks you to log on to your account, giving the scammers access to your username and password.

⁣If you have any doubts, always go directly to a company’s website, not the link included in the text message. ⁣
⁣If you receive what you think is a fake message, forward the text message, including phone number or company name, to 7726. ⁣
⁣It won’t cost you anything and it means your phone provider can investigate the sender.

⭐⭐If you are required to work remotely during the coronavirus lockdown, you may be able to claim tax relief for office equipment under HMRC’s rules.

Office desks, chairs and stationary such as printer ink, are among the essential work items home workers can claim money back on.

The entitlement is not new – under HMRC's rules, workers can claim tax relief if their employer has asked them to work from home.

What items can I get tax relief on?

You can claim for tax relief on any necessary purchases made to help you work from home.

This includes technology, stationary, and printer ink, among other items.

You can also claim tax relief on the cost of furnishing your home office with items such as a desk, a bookcase and an office chair.

What items are not covered for tax relief?

HMRC will reject claims for items you use in your private life, as well as for work, such as clothing, broadband or rent.

How can I claim?

To claim, you will need to fill in a P87 form, which can be downloaded on the government website and sent to HMRC.

⭐⭐FURLOUGH SCHEME UPDATE⭐⭐ The UK scheme to pay wages of workers on leave because of coronavirus will be extended to October, Chancellor Rishi Sunak said.

He said the government backed workers and companies going into the lockdown, and would support them coming out.

Mr Sunak confirmed that employees will continue to receive 80% of their monthly wages up to £2,500.

But he said the government will ask companies to "start sharing" the cost of the scheme from August.

Mr Sunak rejected suggestions some people might get "addicted" to furlough if it was extended.

Some 7.5 million workers are now covered by the scheme, up from 6.3 million last week, he said.

The chancellor told the Commons that from August, the scheme would continue for all sectors and regions of the country but with greater flexibility to support the transition back to work, he said.

Employers currently using the scheme would be able to bring furloughed employees back part-time.⭐⭐ #accounting #business #finance #accountant #tax #bookkeeping #taxes #payroll #accountingservices #accountants #accountinglife #money #furlough #news

⭐⭐Whether you’re starting out or your business is growing, there are many different things to consider and one of the most asked questions is usually why should I get an accountant for my business?
