Pension auto enrolment – what is it and how does it affect my business?

The Government has amended pension law and every employer has new legal duties to enable their employees to save for retirement.  This legal requirement has already commenced for some businesses.  In essence, employers have an obligation to enrol employees into a qualifying workplace pension scheme where the employer, together with the employee must make contributions.

These legislative changes are being phased in over a period of time with the phasing depending on the number of employees in the business.

A lot of preparation is needed for automatic enrolment, however, you can contact our team on 01665 710547 or info@nickalls.co.uk for further guidance and assistance to ensure you are fully compliant with this new legislation.

Nickalls arranged systems for us and piloted us carefully into them starting with the payroll. It was surprising how simple this transition became and how the workload was removed from our staff without any problems as Nickalls had done their preparation and preliminary work very thoroughly prior to the event……….. They are proactive and forward thinking and are working both with us and for us. Not only are we satisfied clients but we appreciate an excellent system customised to our own business at a fraction of the cost of employing our own financial staff. - Vyvian Wetherell, MD Durham Render Centre Ltd
Research and development tax credits – what are these and does my business qualify?

The Government has set up a scheme for Research & Development Tax Credits with the sole intention of driving UK productivity through the encouragement of innovation.  This scheme is only available to businesses liable to Corporation Tax.

Many businesses in the UK are unknowingly involved in Research & Development, which once identified can produce significant financial benefits.

For example, if you are a small or medium sized enterprise you could receive 225% tax relief on qualifying Research & Development costs.  This means for every £1 of qualifying cost, the business will be able to write off £2.25 against the business Corporation Tax profits.

If you think this may apply to your business, feel free to contact our team on 01665 710547 or info@nickalls.co.uk for further guidance and assistance.

Professional, personable, supportive, forward thinking ……. that, for us, is Nickalls!! - Sue Packard, Director, Packard Leisure Ltd
Could your business benefit from a financial systems upgrade?

At Nickalls we are keen to find the best accounting systems for your business. This could be a fairly basic system for the small owner managed business that allows you to concentrate on your job and your customers without getting bogged down in time consuming bookkeeping chores. Our systems reviews aim to achieve that but also provide the information that all businesses need on their finances in real time and to ensure that you are fully compliant with current rules.

We also offer a financial systems review as many businesses may now benefit from “cloud accounting” technology which allows you to keep on top of your financial responsibilities on the move and to fit in with a hectic schedule.

Whatever your particular business requirements are  Nickalls can tailor a system that fits the bill.  If this is of interest contact our team on 01665 710547 or info@nickalls.co.uk for further discussion.

Nickalls have provided accountancy and payroll services to Amble Development Trust for 13 years. Throughout that time their level of service, efficiency and cost effectiveness and has been exemplary. Senior members have made themselves available at all times and are approachable to discuss matters beyond the retained contract level.
