Business Record Checks

Newsletter issue - December 2012.

The Taxman apparently believes that anyone who does business in cash must be a potential 'tax cheat'. This is ridiculous of course, but his latest business record checks campaign is based on this fallacy.

If you receive a call from the Taxman asking questions about your business records, please refer the caller to us before agreeing to answer his questions. You should not be penalised for doing this. The Taxman is required to deal with the taxpayer's agent if asked to do so.

The telephone questionnaire is a computer generated script, which only accepts a limited range of answers. For example: How many purchases are in cash? Answers accepted: none, a third, half or more.

The answers given determine whether the Taxman sends you guidance on how to keep better business records, or an Inspector to check what you may be doing wrong. Where the Taxman wants to inspect your business records, please ask us to be present when they come. The potential penalties for flying solo are not worth it.

We have used Beauchamp Charles since company formation back in 1998. Beauchamp Charles offers us a one to one service as they are small enough to offer this dedicated service and large enough to do the work and offer best advice. They get to know us as individuals and a business, always giving sound advice. Frederick Thomas Electrical are in a stronger place thanks to the service we get from them.

Barnes Walker Landscapes Limited

We are a small business and had employed the same accountancy firm for many years. Two years ago we took the decision to switch to Beauchamp Charles after several othe local businesses recommended them very highly to us. We have not been disappointed with the service they have provided to us over these last two years.
