New trading allowance: some things you need to know
A new £1,000 tax-free trading allowance became available in April 2017. If this allowance is relevant to your business, there are certain complexities linked to it that you should know about. The trading allowance aims to provide simplicity and certainty regarding your obligations for income tax on small amounts of trading and miscellaneous income from providing goods, services or other assets. Income, not profits Basically, the trading allowance provides for a complete exemption from income tax if your total trading…

Are you affected by the new Simple Assessment process?
HMRC has now introduced Simple Assessment, a process designed to make the tax system easier. It eliminates the need for some people to file a Self-Assessment Return if the information is available to HMRC through the Digital Tax Account and 3rd party data. This new system came into force in September, and currently applies to you if: You are a PAYE taxpayer who has underpayments that cannot be collected through your tax code. Your state pension is more than the…
Sleep loss affects our health and our ability to stay sharp
We are all increasingly aware of the importance of a good night’s sleep, but sleep loss affects our health and our ability to stay sharp. It also costs the UK £30bn a year in lost revenue. On 2nd October the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine to three scientists: Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young for their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm, or the biological clock. Their work…
Married couples and civil partners may be missing out on a tax break
A recent press report showed that TWO MILLION married couples and civil partners have not taken advantage of a £662 marriage tax break. This means that people are missing out on total of £1.3billion. When the ‘marriage allowance’ was introduced in 2015, the Government was criticised for not publicising this scheme properly. Its aim was to help people where one partner earns less than the other by allowing the lower earner to transfer up £1,150 of any unused £11,500 tax-free…
Nordens Wacky Racers help raise funds for charity
We were proud to include a team in a go karting event organised to raise money for the Harley Street Skin Clinic’s Back on Track charity. ‘Nordens Wacky Racers’ took to the track to support the charity, which helps British soldiers disfigured in battle. Dr Aamer Khan and wife Lesley Reynolds run Harley Street Skin Clinic, and we've had the privilege of working with, and supporting them for several years. They set up the ‘Back on Track’ charity to raise…
VAT, Brexit and where you’ll stand
The government's approach to VAT, customs and excise in the post-Brexit landscape is set out in a new white paper, along with a contingency scenario for those who 'like their Brexit a little harder!' In this publication, ‘Future customs arrangements: a future partnership paper’, proposals are laid out for an ambitious new customs relationship with the EU. Regardless of the outcome of negotiations, the UK will need new customs legislation in place by March 2019. Later this year, the government will…
Don’t get struck off by Companies House
Did you know that if you are late in filing your company accounts, and you don’t reply to warnings from Companies House, your company could be struck-off the Companies House register and cease to exist within just a few short months? Creditsafe reports indicate that Companies House is giving only two months after the year end filing date before putting in an active proposal for the company to be struck off.  This short amount of time doesn’t leave much leeway…
A proposal to slash the VAT threshold scares many small businesses
One million small businesses face being brought into VAT if the government accepts VAT reform recommendations laid out by the Office of Tax Simplification (OTS). The OTS report claims that our current VAT system is “awash with layers of complexity” and recommends drastically lowering the VAT threshold from its current level of £85,000 (one of the highest in the world). While it doesn’t make an outright recommendation, it does look at the consequences of lowering the threshold to a level…
Business by Design
Most businesses are built by default – not by design. Very few businesses start ‘with the end in mind’ and design it from the ground up. Most businesses grow by default with people, systems, culture, clients, numbers, habits and attitudes. If you take a good hard look at your business today, is it exactly what you want it to be? If you are motivated you can make changes. But you have to be motivated. We suggest that you focus on…

  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.
