Seven steps to plan positively for the next recession
Everyone seems to agree that we are on the verge of a worldwide recession. Whether or not this is the case, the economy is facing difficult times and this will affect many businesses. However, as a business owner, there’s no need to despair; a recession can be an incredible opportunity for your business. This is the time to really think about how world economics will affect you: what are you going to do, twist or bust? Whilst it’s true that…

Can you claim the employment allowance?
What is the employment allowance? The employment allowance is a recruitment incentive aimed at smaller employers. It’s worth up to £3,000 per year to set against your employer’s Class 1 NIC bill, making it a valuable allowance that many employers don’t realise they can claim. This allowance is set to change slightly from April 2020, so this is a good time to review whether you are eligible to claim. Who can claim? As long as you employ staff, you’re eligible to…

Do you qualify for a Research and Development tax claim?
Don’t immediately say no because you’re not a rocket scientist.  Business owners often miss this valuable Research and Development (R&D) tax break when they are actually entitled to it for their business activities, simply because they’re not aware of it or they think they won’t qualify for this specific tax relief. In fact, you may be able to get an enhanced deduction of 130% of your R&D qualifying expenditure. Even loss-making companies can, in certain circumstances, surrender their losses in…

How Status Determination Statements will impact contractors and “end clients”
Working with many contractors across a wide range of industries, it’s important that we make sure everyone is aware of changes – and the rules for IR35 are changing. Are you a contractor thinking about how these changes will affect you? Or are you the “end client” – the business that’s contracted out the work – and therefore the one who may soon be liable for paying the IR35 tax? The new rules coming into place from 2020/21 mean that…

Sole traders often struggle to achieve success – we can help!
Taking the leap into self-employment is a popular step for many entrepreneurial people, but the realities of running your own business can be hard. The Institute for Fiscal Studies, an economic research organisation specialising in UK taxation, ran a study that has discovered: “most people who try self-employment fail quickly and very few go on to employ others or create significant ventures.” Despite the gloomy statistics, between 2000 and 2015, the number of self-employed sole traders rose by 1.4 million…

VAT: reverse charge for construction services
Are you CIS and VAT registered? If so, read on… From 1st October, the government is introducing the “VAT Domestic Reverse Charge” (also known simply as “Reverse Charge”) for businesses involved in building and construction services. What is the Reverse Charge?  The Reverse Charge is a way of passing responsibility for the reporting and paying of a VAT transaction from the seller to the buyer of goods or services. So, instead of the seller paying the VAT, the buyer takes responsibility for it. Why…

Why you need to protect yourself from an HMRC investigation
A tax investgation is a nasty business. It’s stressful, time consuming and usually very expensive. And it could easily happen to you. It happened to one of our clients, but luckily, he’d taken out our Tax Investigation Protection. 18 months of stress and a £20k tax bill?? In a nutshell, our client received what seemed at first a simple enquiry from HMRC, beginning with just a few questions.  This enquiry then turned into the tax inspector looking at the IR35…

Liable Not Liable: The HMRC concession that not a lot of people know about
As Michael Caine famously said, “Not a lot of people know that.”  As it turns out, he didn’t say that at all – comedian Peter Sellers actually coined the phrase. With regard to this interesting tax concession, what a lot of people don’t know is that if you are penalised for registering late for VAT, you could benefit from an undocumented VAT concession which may reduce your penalty. For example, you may be aiming to stay below the VAT threshold,…

Are you too busy to be cool?
We have always promoted the concept of helping our clients to work fewer hours yet gain higher profits; our strategic business department specialises in doing exactly that. So when Emma Gannon wrote such a superb article in the Sunday Times about productivity, perceptions of 'busy-ness' and flexible working, we thought we'd share it with you...   Once upon a time, overloading yourself with busyness, by choice, was the ultimate status symbol. Working 24/7 and losing hair over your start-up’s accelerated…

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier, the difficult part was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
