Macmillan Mighty Hike 2020



As most of you know we are big supporters of Macmillan Cancer Support and our Coffee Mornings are now renowned in the local area.

 This year, alongside the annual coffee and cake fest, we are embarking on something a little more energetic, The Dedham Vale Mighty Hike. We will be walking 26 miles from Kentwell Hall to Flatford on August 1 and would be very grateful for your support.

 Andy, Dan, Clare, Kerry, Lisa B, Ian T, Maureen, Charlotte and Wendy will be in training from now until then, you may even see them pounding a street near you!

 We would really like to raise a very large sum of money to support the amazing work that Macmillan do each and every day and a link to our just giving page is attached to this article for your ease and generosity.

 For each and every donation…Thank You.


Making Tax Digital

MTD Logo

April 2019 sees the start of HMRC's Making Tax Digital initiative for VAT (MTDfV) for most businesses. The new rules will impact VAT registered businesses with taxable turnover above the £85,000 registration threshold, taking effect for VAT return periods starting on or after 1 April 2019.

There have been several recent developments, including the publication of a new VAT Notice covering MTDfV requirements, and the announcement of deferrals for some 'more complex' businesses. Please see attached a pdf copy of our recent newsletter to help guide you through the jargon and answer many of your questions in a concise manner.

Making Tax Digital will affect how we currently service your bookkeeping, and we'd like to talk through your options for how we can get you ready ahead of April 2019.

If you are currently using Excel or manual records to record your financial activity and VAT liability you will need to find a suitable, MTD compliant, alternative and we recommend Sage accounting cloud software to manage your accounts and keep digital records of transactions.
