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 ltd 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.

08 April 2021  The 6 April start of the 2021/22 tax year sees important fiscal and business changes come into effect, including the introduction of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS). The scheme provides financial support to businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The scheme gives lenders a guarantee of 80% on eligible loans between £25,000 and £10 million to give them confidence in continuing to provide finance to UK businesses. The RLS is open to all businesses, including those who have already received support under the existing COVID-19 loan schemes.

Payment deadline looming for self assessment taxpayerss

31 March 2021  Self assessment taxpayers must pay any outstanding tax liabilities in full or set up an online payment plan for the 2019/20 financial year by 1 April to avoid incurring penalty charges, HMRC has stated. Normally a 5% late payment penalty is also charged on any unpaid tax that is still outstanding on 3 March. But this year, because of the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, HMRC is giving taxpayers more time to pay or set up a payment plan. Taxpayers can pay their tax or set up a monthly payment plan online by midnight on 1 April 2021 in order to prevent being penalised.

Second home owners dealt blow after tax crackdown on holiday lets

24 March 2021  Tens of thousands of second-home owners who falsely register their properties as holiday lets in order to claim tax breaks face a clampdown by the taxman, the treasury said yesterday. At present owners can declare they are renting out second properties – meaning they are charged business rates rather than council tax, which is higher. A total of 60,000 properties are registered in this way. But the Treasury is concerned that many owners are getting away with paying business rates while making little or no effort to rent their properties. Officials believe some owners may have claimed Covid support grants.
