Spread The Love This Festive Season
The mince pies are sitting nicely in their half-opened sleeves, and fairy lights are probably looping around your office. Christmas is almost upon us! Hopefully, with the help of Bright Ideas Accountancy, you’ve managed to reign your finances in order, leaving you free to enjoy the festive season in peace.
Yet spare a thought for those less fortunate – as in, the freelancers and contractors who are still struggling with their books and accounts. As an early present, consider sending them our way. After all, Scrooge was buried in his end-of-year finance, and look how he turned out…
Lightening the monetary load
Christmas is a time when we’re appreciating the simpler things in life, those that don’t necessarily make us want to think of cash flow problems and invoice collection. The reality is, however, that tens of thousands of freelancers can’t switch off when everyone else seems to be enjoying themselves.
You may have encountered a friend, family member or contact who’s bemoaning their books, and in desperate need of someone who can save them from the abyss. Added to this are the pressures of present buying, and finalising everything before clients shut up shop. It’s a lot to handle for what can already be a stress-inducing period.
Deadlines on the horizon…
In addition, the January deadline for Self Assessment tax returns is swinging around very soon. So if you know a freelancer or contractor who’s yet to submit theirs, make sure they don’t leave it too late.
Finding, sorting and going over receipts and statements is no-one’s idea of a fun Christmas. The later they leave it, the tougher it’ll be to maintain a level head. HMRC are incredibly vigilant when tax assessment comes into play, so the stress of checking everything two or three times can certainly get to the freelancer worried about financial penalties for poor submissions.
Surely, you must’ve overheard an off-the-cuff comment from someone about their guilt at putting it off? If so, we have a treat for you, and for them, that’ll make both of your lives that little bit easier…
Your Christmas bonus
We’ve dug deep into our sack of treats, and come out with a jolly good deal for anyone who introduces us to a friend or family member. Bright Ideas Accountancy is offering £150 for existing customers who refer us successfully to a new client.
As soon as they sign up to one of our packages, the cash is yours, and you’ll also be entered into a monthly prize draw (one entry for each referral) with a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
