Just as your thoughts may be turning to a kindly old man in red with a long white beard, don't forget that not far behind him is is a less kindly fellow who wants your money - The Taxman.
The deadline for tax returns is at the end of January and it'll be here sooner than you think. I met with Leon Stephens at Brookes Stephens Accountants this week and his advice was to start getting organised now. It's no use turning up on your accountant's doorstep on 28th January with 5 boxes of paperwork - it'll be too late by then.
Brookes Stephens have recently increased the size of their team of chartered accountants and are happy to accept new clients over the next few weeks who want to hit the tax return deadline. To ease the pain of your tax return they have come up with a generous offer, exclusive to members of thebestof Lichfield, of £50 off the cost of preparing your accounts. Once they get hold of your books you will probably find that they will save you a whole lot more by getting your accounts and tax liabilities in order. You can call Brookes Stephens on 01543 401027
I can also recommend Culley Lifford Hall, who again can help you with your 2009 accounts, particularly if you have concerns about the amount of tax you are paying. Culley Lifford Hall specialise in the more complex side of tax planning and make it their priority to ensure that you are not paying our friends over at HMRC a penny more than necessary. You can call Culley Lifford Hall on 01543 421841
If it's simply a bookkeeper you need, to take over the day to day management of your books then you should give Margaret at SMDR a call on 01543 305644. She has a long experience of bookkeeping for all sizes of firms and is a safe pair of hands.
Well, I hope this is helpful to you and it hasn't spoiled your Christmas preparations. The smart answer is to hand it over to the accountants and let them spend Christmas worrying about it for you!
