Tax is changing in Wales next year

From next April, Wales will join Scotland in becoming responsible for some of the taxes paid locally.

These changes will mark the first time that the Welsh have...

What is reasonable care from a tax point of view?
12/12/2017 - More...
The tax penalty system is intended to make penalties simpler to understand and more consistent across many taxes. The penalties can range from 0% where reasonable care is taken, but nonetheless an incorrect return is submitted up to 100% of the tax where an error is deliberate, and the taxpayer attempts to conceal it. HMRC has the power to significantly reduce the amount of...

Selling your business – 10% tax may apply to sale
12/12/2017 - More...
Entrepreneurs' relief applies to the sale of a business, shares in a trading company or an individual’s interest in a trading partnership. Where entrepreneurs' relief is available CGT of 10% is payable rather than the normal main rate of 20%. This can significantly reduce the amount of CGT due and there is a £10 million lifetime limit.

Outsourcing our bookkeeping and accounting was a good decision, but even better was outsourcing it to EJBC. They have been efficient, cost effective and flexible from day one, and we are very happy with the service that we receive.

Simon Nutbrown

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how pleased we are that you deal with our company accounts, pay roll and VAT.
We had used a Qualified Accountant before but felt that our business was not that important to them and that we didn’t get
help we needed to keep our business records and returns up to date.

You were recommended to us by another business who could not sing your praises enough and they were right. We feel totally happy that you now deal with our accounts and really appreciate the hard work you and Richard put into keeping our accounts
in order and the advice that you have given us in the last few years.

We would recommend you to any business wanting to get their accounts completed in a timely and professional manner and especially SMB’s that don’t have time to worry about their accounting.

Thank you again for everything you do for us, we feel that you are as much a part of our business as we are.

I was introduced to EJBC by recommendation from a friend and have been with them two years now. I have always found them thorough, helpful and easy to deal with. They always respond quickly when I have a question, and the detail and clarity of the paperwork they have produced for me is a refreshing and welcome improvement on my previous experience.

Jeremy Porter

Starting a new business can feel a bit daunting but working with EJBC has been pain free from the beginning, enabling us to get on with building our business and delivering the work. In the beginning, as we got to grips with the practicalities of running the business we regularly rang Emma for advice. When there was more than one option, Emma would explain each and work with us to take the right decision for us. We have just celebrated our first five years’ trading and have no hesitation in recommending EJBC as a valued business partner.
