Tax Payment Deadline Today!

By | Blog | No Comments

Drummond Laurie Chartered Accountantspayment dueIt’s that time of year again when some of you will owe money to HMRC in relation to your 2nd payment on account for 2016/17.

‘Payments on account’ are advance payments towards your self-assessment tax liability (including Class 4 National insurance) and have to be paid twice a year, unless:

  • Your self-assessment tax liability was less than £1,000 in the prior year, or
  • You pay more than 80% of your tax liability at source.

Each payment is half your previous year’s tax liability (excluding Class 2 National Insurance) and has to be paid no later than the 31st January and 31st July.payment

As the 31st July 2017 deadline is today you need to ensure that if you have a payment on account to make that this is paid as soon as possible to avoid interest being applied for late payment.

If you are unsure if you owe anything to HMRC, please speak to your tax adviser who will be able to assist.

An Insight from our Intern

By | Blog | No Comments

Drummond Laurie Chartered AccountantsAfter my fifth week of ten I’m halfway through my summer student time already!

So far, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Drummond Laurie and the overall experience has surpassed my expectations in so many ways.

In terms of the day to day work, I’ve had the chance to work for all departments from business services to payroll and outsourcing. I’ve loved the variety of tasks I’ve been set and enjoy seeing the accounts production from start to finish. Getting to work on and make my contribution to real clients’ accounts is something I wasn’t expecting! Generally, I expected administrative tasks to be the bulk of my work, which is not the case, and I like coming to work in the morning knowing I’m going to learn something new. Working on reception and managing the phones has allowed me to meet real Drummond Laurie clients and be part of their experience, which I’ve really enjoyed. My experience so far has confirmed that becoming a chartered accountant is what I’d like to do.emma1

Everyone here has been so friendly and welcoming. Settling into a busy office environment is alien to me and so I appreciate how approachable all staff members are. There’s a great social atmosphere within the office, which instantly made me less nervous on day one. I enjoy how the pods are arranged around mixed experience, so there is always someone knowledgeable and willing to help close by. All the students have been so lovely as well, they’re always happy to help when I need a hand. I look forward to going out on a Friday for lunch and they’ve given me a fab insight into what my life could be like after I graduate next year.No-pressure

I’m looking forward to the next five weeks, I’m going to take over Twitter for Drummond Laurie and tell you something new every day. This will help me get to know the team and what everyone does bit more, I’d love to see this famous cake day and they’ve promised that to me if I increase the followers! #NoPressure
