August – Summing It Up

A new month means it’s high time for a fresh blog.

As the weather sways from tropical heat to biblical rainfall and back again (usually on the same day), here at Advanced Accountancy we’ve also been keeping ourselves busy.

Most excitingly, we’ve recently featured in the Stourbridge News who wrote a wonderful piece about our new corporate sponsorship arrangement with the famous Bonded Warehouse community group. It was a real joy to see our hard work celebrated in the local press and we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with one of the most esteemed volunteer-led projects in the region. We’ve given the Bonded Warehouse team a cool £1,000 which will allow them to keep the iconic 18th Century building ship shape and Bristol fashion for years to come. We’re as thrilled as ever to support an organisation which has spent so many decades improving their local area. Read more about how the money will be put to good use here. 

In the news!

However, it’s not only the Bonded Warehouse who have benefited from our good fortune; we’re also delighted to provide the shirt sponsorship for Wolverhampton-based football team Claregate Park Rangers FC. We wish them all the best for the forthcoming season and look forward to cheering on the boys from the sideline. If they continue working as hard for each other as we do for our customers, we’re sure they’ll enjoy a successful season. We’re also pleased to have assisted The Duncan Edwards Foundation (DEF), who help children from all walks of life achieve their sporting ambitions, achieve their long-awaited charity status after a great deal of hard work by Advanced Accountancy company director and valued DEF trustee DEF and the their lovely founder Rose Cook-Monk.

In accountancy news, the first VAT quarter (1 April-30 June) following the Making Tax Digital changeover is due for submission next week. The VAT return and payment due date for this return is 7 August 2019, so we’ve been working hard integrating all our VAT registered clients into the new system of late. If you are a VAT registered business with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold (£85,000) you are required to keep digital VAT records and send returns using ‘Making Tax Digital’ compatible software from 1 April 2019 or risk running foul of the law – does this sound like it affects you? Are you baffled by the whole process? Have a query? Why not get in touch with our friendly team today so they can run through your options and put your mind at ease.

In other news, we’ve enjoyed a few celebrations in the office as bookkeeper Jake and payroll manager Maddison both had their birthdays in the last few weeks. It was also Advanced Accountancy’s company director Marina Parry’s birthday recently which we all enjoyed celebrating.

We’re also delighted to announce Advanced Accountancy’s youngest fan, courtesy of our lovely staff member Stacey-Leigh who gave birth to her beautiful little girl Alannah back in May. We can’t wait to see her in the office again soon, she’s breath-taking!

So that brings you pretty much up-to-date with what we’ve been busying ourselves with over this Great British Summer. Naturally, we’ve also been occupied keeping our clients as happy as they’ve ever been and ensuring we always go the extra mile to help out you and your business interests. As ever, here at Advanced Accountancy we’re open to any questions you may have – big or small, daft or serious – and also are always looking for new businesses to bring into our little family. Why not call by for a quick chat and a coffee? There might even be a little bit of birthday cake left over… Until next time!
