Director / Landlord, English Village Homes Limited

I have been using the services of Phillips & Co Accountants Chester for a number of years for three businesses that I own, one as a sole trader, one as a partnership and the other as a limited company. I have found them to be extremely reliable, efficient and most importantly, easy to communicate with. I have recommended Phillips & Co Accountants Chester to others and have had very positive feedback with a number of them engaging them as their accountants.

The latest tax news from Phillips & Co Accountants Chester

SEISS third grant open to applications until 29 January 2021

19 January 2021  The third of four taxable Government grants for self-employed individuals is now open. It covers the period from 1 November 2020 to the end of January 2021 with a deadline to apply of 29 January 2021. This is to ensure HMRC’s systems can cope with the volume of traffic – as the deadline for filing self-assessment income tax returns is 31 January 2021. You can get as much as £7,500. This is made up of 80% of three months’ worth of average monthly trading profits capped at £2,500 per month. HMRC looks at your tax returns from 2018/19, 2017/18 and 2016/17.

Taxpayers using Time to Pay to spread cost of tax payments

14 January 2021  Tax payments worth over £69 million are being spread through HMRC’s Time to Pay facility, according to the tax authority. HMRC said that nearly 25,000 self assessment taxpayers have set up an online payment plan to manage their tax liabilities in up to 12 monthly instalments. Last October HMRC increased the threshold for self-serve Time to Pay arrangements from £10,000 to £30,000. Once self assessors have completed their 2019/20 tax return and know how much tax they owe, they can use the self-serve facility to set up monthly direct debits.

Chancellor unveils £4.6 billion lockdown grant package

06 January 2021  Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced a new £4.6 billion package of grants to support businesses through the latest national lockdown. UK businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors are to be given one-off grants worth up to £9,000. The payments are expected to support 600,000 business properties across the UK. A further £594 million will be made available to councils and devolved nations to support businesses not covered by the new grants. The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, said: ‘The new strain of the virus presents us all with a huge challenge.
