Tax and Self Assessment Doesn't Have to be Taxing

The nights are drawing in and that can mean only one thing: the taxman is lurking and waiting for your self assessment form!

Self-assessment can seem a little daunting, especially for the many of you dealing with it for the first time. For the most part it’s straightforward but that’s not necessarily a comfort and there are always quirks that don’t seem to quite fit the form, and working out what you can and can't claim for can seem confusing

To make completing your return as simple as possible, we’ve arranged for Jill Hindmarsh, from Allen Sykes Accountancy , who is a very friendly accountant and one who speaks plain English, to take you through the return and answer any questions you might have.

Meryl and Dave will also be on hand to offer their support.  

Although there’s still plenty of time to complete your return why not get it painlessly out of the way now rather than chase your tail as the deadline approaches?
