Find out how you can take home at least an extra £6,000 a year

The Umbrella model is under attack from HMRC as the Government tightens its grip on expenses and National Insurance payment. In 12 months’ time, under the current Umbrella model, tax relief for expenses will only be given via a personal tax return claim. It’s also the case that Employer’s National Insurance will then be payable on reimbursement expenses putting margin pressure on Umbrellas, unless they pass it on. A wider debate about the complete removal of relief for T&S still goes on and Umbrella workers could see it removed in whole or part during 2016. Umbrella workers will have to do a personal tax return to claim tax relief on expenses: Ouch!

I was ignorant of my accounts for too long and didn’t give them the respect they deserved. I’ve been with a few accounting firms over the years and previous accountants I’d been with didn’t have the time or interest to help me out of my mess.
