Why Should You Choose A Qualified Accountant?

Anyone can set up an accountancy practice, regardless of their experience and qualifications. If you choose an unqualified person you could be trusting your finances with an accountant who doesn’t have the experience to handle your affairs professionally and doesn’t have to abide by standards of conduct or comply with a code of ethics if something goes wrong.

The benefits of choosing a qualified accountant (registered with one of the UK Accounting Bodies such as AAT, ICAEW or ACCA ) include having an accountant who is regulated, licensed, insured, kept up to date with continued professional development and following a code of ethics to maintain professional standards.

Watch out for HMRC Scams

It could be a scam if it:   

1.     is unexpected,    2.   offers a refund, tax rebate or grant,   3.   asks for personal information like bank details,   4.    is threatening,   5.  tells you to transfer money

You can be sure that HMRC will:

1.   only ever call you asking about a claim or payment on a debt that you already know about,   2. never leave a voicemail threatening legal action,   3.  never give the reason for a call on a voice message

If you receive any communication through WhatsApp claiming to be from HMRC it’s a scam.

SEISS 4th Grant

The online claims service for the fourth grant will be available from late April 2021 until 31 May 2021.
