Arnold Ayton is qualified as a Chartered Accountant under the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA), although I currently hold a practicing license under the Institute of Financial Accountants (IFA). Arnie was a delight to get started with, seeing as we had a very messy backlog of transactions and incorrect payroll when we were doing it in house. He and his team helped us straighten out our accounting basics last year, and this year he has helped us apply for significant VAT rebates and R&D tax credits. He has helped our team explore new financial opportunities and has connected us with advisors who have proven to be very helpful. He’s a very straight-talking and friendly individual who is easy to get along with, and is clearly committed to his business and clients.
Spondoo accounting advices in 2021: How much can you claim for food expenses? HMRC do not state a specific limit on the amount you can spend on food and drink and then claim as an expense. However, they do state that all subsistence costs should be reasonable. Don’t expect the taxpayer to cover a three-course meal at the local Michelin restaurant! There is another rule to be aware of, if you eat with people not employed by the company, including clients and partners. The food and drink in these scenarios are classed as entertainment and no longer solely for subsistence. Thus, in these situations, all of the food and drink is no longer an allowable expense. You cannot divide the receipt into allowable and disqualified expenses.
The IR35 legislation has been introduced to ensure that these workers pay broadly the same tax and National Insurance contributions (NICs) as an employee. IR35 has been in force for over 10 years but the key change from April 2020, is the change in ‘who is liable’ for non-compliance from the individual or contractor to the organisation engaging the worker.? Before April 2020, a contractor/worker not currently on PAYE (i.e. a maintenance person) working for your business/organisation, is deemed to fall under this legislation and is challenged by HMRC, the individual / contractor would be liable for all the underpaid tax and a Class 1 National Insurance (Employer as well as Employee NIC) liabilities. After April 2020, a contractor/worker not currently on PAYE (i.e. a maintenance person) working for your business/organisation, is deemed to fall under this legislation the underpaid tax and associated penalties will fall on the business, not the contractor.
