Protected: Making Tax Digital

 An introduction to Making Tax Digital for VAT Tax affairs management is changing for the UK’s businesses, accountants and bookkeepers and the deadline is fast-approaching. Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative designed to make sure the UK tax system more effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers. It is a good idea to be prepared so that you are ready before the deadline. What do HMRC’s updates mean for you? From 1 April 2019 VAT-registered businesses above the threshold of £85k will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns using compatible cloud accounting software. HMRC lists Xero as software that will be compatible with MTD for VAT which is the software we use at Indigo Green. If you are below the threshold you won’t be immediately impacted but this is a great opportunity to switch to online accounting. You will not need to use Government Gateway anymore as your new cloud-based software will do this for you. For a more in-depth understanding, read this article about Making Tax Digital for VAT by Sage. When does all this happen? Use this neat timeline created by Xero to be in the know. So how do you go about changing over? Utilise this Making Tax Digital checklist to aid your preparations and keep on top of everything. Check out this handy infographic guide to making tax digital made by Sage, which should also help you on your way. Of course, we have been cloud-based for years and all of our client’s accounts are already digital. It is fair to say we are experts in this field, so if you would like us to take care of everything for you, get in... read more

12 Apps of Christmas

12 Apps of Christmas. In a twist on the traditional 12 Days of Christmas, over the next 12 days we’re going to share 12 great apps that you can use within your business. All of these apps link into Xero, maximising their value. We actually use 7 out of the 12 apps within Indigo Green, so we speak from experience! Day 1 – GoCardless (www.gocardless.com) GoCardless is an amazing payments service. Get your clients to sign up to pay you via Direct Debit. Whenever you create an invoice for a client that is signed up to pay via DD the payment will automatically be called on the due date that you put on the invoice. You also have the option of setting up a monthly recurring payment, which isn’t linked to an invoice. Fees on GC are capped at 1% of the payment amount, up to a maximum of £2 per transaction. Payout times are generally 2 days. Day 2 – TripCatcher (www.tripcatcherapp.com) TripCatcher takes the headache out of mileage claims. Whilst there are other apps that deal with employee expenses (one of which features in our 12 Apps…) TripCatcher looks after those pesky mileage expenses. Use the GPS feature to track where you go, save favourite journeys to add again with a couple of taps, and then export over to Xero at the end of the month to an expense claim. One of the 2 best bits – tell TC what car you drive, and it’ll work out the VAT element you can reclaim so you don’t have to constantly check the advisory rates, or worse still just don’t... read more

Spring Budget 2017: Conservatives, the party of small business?

In the final Spring Budget before the shift to an Autumn Budget / Spring Statement, the Chancellor Philip Hammond today announced various changes that will impact on businesses. Mr Hammond teased a rather thin looking budget document on Twitter in the hours before he got to his feet in the House of Commons, and this transpired in what was a relatively thin on the ground budget. Here we pick out the salient points.

Services

Let’s see what services you require …

  • Startup

    For some setting up in business is a step into the unknown itself, without the added headache of making sure you are compliant with everything that is needed from a tax or accounting point of view. At Indigo Green we specialise in helping new startup enterprises, whether it's adopting the correct form of business, setting up your systems or doing everything that the taxman needs you to do, we're here to help.

    Bookkeeping

    In the early days most business owners like to do the books themselves, and that’s a great way to save money early on. But there comes a time where you seem to spend more time doing the books than running the business! Here is where we can help. We can help with your bookkeeping, however often you need it, weekly, monthly, quarterly or even annually! We use powerful online accounting software like Xero and Sage One to help give you the insight you need. We're Xero certified too!

    Finance Manager

    It’s all well and good making sure the accounts are up to date, but as a business owner you need to make sense of it all, and understand what those figures are telling you. At Indigo Green, we’re great at providing that insight, whether we’ve done the bookkeeping or not! We can pull the figures together into a sensible and readable report so you can see what makes or costs you money. And we can do that however often you need. Need someone for a day a week? Not a problem. Only once a month? Not a problem. This service can be complemented by Indigo Green preparing your end of year accounts, however we can also work alongside your current accountant to provide this service with no change to who prepares your annual accounts.

    Internal Control

    The vast majority of internal control systems have been borne out of tinkering. Changing a little something here, adding a little step there. But sometimes it can seem like you’re just following a long paper trail. Now is the time to have a fresh look at the systems in place, and extract the maximum efficiencies that you can. And Indigo Green can help. We’ve got experience of all manner of internal control systems and can help you put in place the best one for your business.

    Business Support

    Got staff? Payroll needs to be done and reported to HMRC correctly each pay run. And with the looming auto-enrolment deadlines, there’s more to do on payroll. We can help. VAT registered? Making sure that VAT return is filed every quarter or month can cause headaches. We can help. Involved in the construction industry? You’ll need to be making the right CIS returns to HMRC. We can help.

    Accounts & Tax

    Every accountant under the sun does this. Most of the time preparing accounts is just a compliance thing, doing what you have to do to keep the taxman and Companies House happy. But why not make something of it, and use the opportunity to make sure you understand your business and what makes you money and doesn’t? And you’ll need the necessary tax returns to go with those accounts, and here at Indigo Green we’ll get the best deal for you as a taxpayer.

    Personal Taxation

    We can complete tax returns, calculate any tax liability and advise you on exactly when to make payments and how much to pay.
