Agency checks prior to starting a contract Recently Published
spearmain [Ask-Legal-Accounting] 12:25 26/01/15
I have been contracting via my own personal services company since 2009. I have been on maternity leave since June 2013 (fully salaried by my company except for the period I received Statutory Maternity Pay). I have just been offered an 8 week contract by a City institution, but am having no end of hassle with the agency they are using to complete all the relevant security/credit checks as they seem to fail to understand the difference between contractors working via a limited company and PAYE employees.
HMRC sends money after 7 years
Hamilton [Ask-Legal-Accounting] 12:21 05/01/15 | Comments: 3
I am now retired. When I retired I closed my company with the aid of my accountant, with HMRC approval and of course paid all the necessary taxes etc. I left a previous accountant because he failed to submit my PAYE P35 etc. on time and the company received a penalty of 400. The fine was in respect of the year end April 2007. The company was dissolved officially in November 2008 as per records at Companies House.

sanaullap [Ask-Legal-Accounting] 10:32 01/08/14
1. Is it mandatory to have comparative figures for the previous accounting period in the limited company's annual accounts?
Retained profit
exbrm [Ask-Legal-Accounting] 12:12 21/07/14 | Comments: 1
MyCo has been doing well over the last few years so it is accruing monies which I don't need to spend just yet. As I see it MyCo pays the CT on the profit but I don't take the dosh - why pay 40% income tax on it to put it in an ISA @1.8% interest? Are there any rules or limits on doing this?

I started a contract in December 2012 and had my contract reviewed at that time. It was passed and I also have a confirmation of working agreements signed by the end client. I have extended my contract a couple of times and have just been asked again.
