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.

Owner of Web Design company

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.

Self Assessment Client

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!

Why complete your tax return early? ⏰

In these uncertain times, while you have more time at home, it’s the perfect chance to get all your paperwork together for your 19/20 tax return (06/04/2019 – 05/04/2020). 📦

By doing your tax return early, you know what your tax liability for the year is, and with it not having to be paid until January 2021, it will give you plenty of time to budget 📈

Alternatively, if you have paid too much tax and are due a refund, you can get this back quicker from HMRC 💰

At CRASL we want to lighten your load, take the hassle out of admin and let you get back to running your business!

We have measures in place where we can safely collect your paperwork and do the tax return online 💻 Contact our friendly team today on 01728 687000⭐⭐

⭐⭐ How is the cut to 5% VAT in the hospitality sector going for you?

The INTENTION behind the government announcement was to….

🌞 Get customers back to restaurants, hotels, camp sites and attractions

🌞 Give discounts to customers to get them spending again

Did you know? Such businesses are NOT obliged to pass on the reduction in VAT to you?

Why? Well they may choose to use the VAT reduction to get much needed pennies back of their own.

For example, the price of a coffee is £2.00 before the VAT cut, and they pay £0.33p in VAT for every one they sell.

Now? The price is still £2.00 and they will pay £0.10p in VAT for every one they sell.

Benefit to them? £0.23p clawed back for their piggy bank and business ticking over.

The VAT reduction does not mean an AUTOMATIC reduction in your end bill but the custom you are bringing, may just be get a business back on their feet again.
