Year 9 - issue 9 - 09.06.2017


Spend more on IT security?

Following the NHS cyber attack, there’s pressure on you to free up more cash for data security. But is it really necessary?


Is your company missing out on R&D tax relief?

The latest figures from HMRC show that although the number of R&D tax relief claims is increasing year on year, many SMEs still don’t realise they are eligible. What are the main misconceptions?


2016/17 P11D changes

It’s that time of year again when you need to prepare your company’s returns of employee benefits and expenses (Forms P11D). What do you need to watch out for this year?


Rebalancing resources

Project heads are requesting additional staff to cope with the amount of work in the business. Having looked at the staff utilisation numbers, this does not ring true. How can you help alleviate time pressures and avoid adding to costs?


Save on home broadband

While most of a director’s working time is spent at the office, they also need to work at home. This means going online, but HMRC refuses to allow a tax deduction for broadband costs. What steps can you take to save money?


Scared to switch? Don’t be

Energy prices are up almost across the board again, so you’re probably thinking there’s no point in switching supplier as they’re all expensive and it’s a hassle. But could it pay you to think again?


Ban the bin?

Removing waste bins from under employees’ desks has been shown to improve recycling rates. But could the idea also save you some money - and if so what sort of numbers are involved?


Cut the office cleaning cost

You’ve heard of businesses that have cut their office cleaning costs by insourcing - in other words by asking staff to do the chores. Could this be a viable option for you too?


PowerPoint tips

You’ve decided to use PowerPoint at the next board meeting. What lessons can you learn about good and bad PowerPoint practice and how can these enhance your overall presentation?


Being part of decision making

As you have gained more experience as a financial controller and the board has come to trust you, you are being increasingly involved in strategic decision making. How can you make sure your input continues to be valued?


Frequency analysis

You want to analyse the company’s sales invoices into different size categories. Having exported the data into Excel, what is the best way to find out how many invoices fall into each value range?


Look out for PAYE coding changes


Changes to PSC rules already?
