Welcome to the JustAccounts blogs!
We blog about a variety of things, including:
Hints and tips on how to face the changes a new legislation can bring, to HMRC, tax, compliance and other relevant news.
Explaining the JustAccounts software more in detail, which features can help you more and which new modules you can expect in future.
Special blogs in which you get to know the JustAccounts team outside their office role. Did you know we have a serial board-gamer who is also a pizza chef, a fire breather, a jazz singer, several rugby players, marathon runners and many more surprising people amongst our staff?
Some insight on the JustAccounts life, so you get to see what we do as a team when we go on our team building or brainstorming days and the events we organise for our clients.
If you are new to running your own business, you’ve surely noticed that, aside of providing your products or services to your clients, there are many tasks to keep up with, from admin to accounting.
In order to never fall behind, and be compliant with the new MTD rules (link to MTD blog), it is of vital importance to keep your documents and records up-to-date.
Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a government initiative which will simplify the way businesses report their income, expenditure and taxes, and marks the end of the traditional way in which we have submitted information to HMRC.
We know that keeping track of tax dates and deadlines can be difficult when you are focused on running your business.
There are not many dates to remember, but some of them are absolutely crucial.
If you operate your business through a Limited Company, then your earnings are treated differently than they are if you are self employed or in a partnership.
Firstly, you are an employee of the Limited Company and as such are usually paid a regular salary which may be subject to tax and national insurance depending on how much this is. Your tax advisor should be able to let you know the most efficient way of doing this.
If this is your first year as self-employed, and you are working through your tax return, you want to considerate your expenses, as they can make a big difference on your final tax bill.
Just Accounts have teamed up with Pay Me Today to offer a new service. Pay Me Today is a value-added wage advance service that gives contractors instant access to up to 90% of their earned wages before pay day. The good news for Umbrella providers is that it is free and carries no risk; if the advance is not repaid, Pay Me Today takes the hit.
Kilian Fitzsimmons-Wilson, Commercial Director of Just Accounts says “This is just another example of how we are continually striving to offer the services that our customers want. In a matter of minutes our clients can be offering a new cutting-edge service which focuses on the contractors financial wellness; a particular hot topic at the moment.”
On the 25th May 2018 the EU’s General Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) will come in to effect, these infographics will help you to prepare for the changes and make sure you keep up with the new legislation.
