IR35 Preparation
The Government’s decision to delay changes to IR35 to April 2021 will be welcomed by contractors up and down the country. But the legislation still requires contractors to check their status and convince risk-averse clients that they fall outside it. With the run-up to implementation, recruiters and end users that use contractors will have to ensure that they have determined the contract status for each contract and put the appropriate systems in place to ensure that they are ready.  …
What Is My Business Worth? Valuing Your Business
When it comes to buying or selling a business, the most important question you need to ask is – how much is it worth? Sure, there are other motivations behind a valuation, but business owners tend to follow this path when waving goodbye to their latest business venture.   There is no single formula that can be used to precisely value every private business. The seller will want to drive the price up, and potential buyers will want the opposite.…

Ways To Make Your Business Thrive During Tough Economic Times

Businesses have already closed doors, employees have lost their jobs, and entrepreneurs have been forced to adapt.

CBILS Extension
The government have approved for accredited lenders to be given an extra two months to consider applications for finance under the coronavirus business interruption loans scheme (CBILS). When the government set up the schemes, it said that it was temporary and would last six months. The British Business Bank said it continues to review applications from a wide range of lender types – from PRA-regulated banks, to platform lenders, debt funds, invoice finance lenders, asset finance lenders and responsible finance…

  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, for me, 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.
