The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme is a temporary scheme open to all UK employers for at least three months starting from 1 March 2020. HMRC expect the scheme to be up and running by the end of April.
Helping our clients sleep at night
How do we do that? In a number of ways:
- Working with our clients to help them do what they do best
- Ensuring that they meet all tax and Companies House compliance deadlines in plenty of time.
- Promptly preparing accounts and tax returns so that our clients have plenty of notice of forthcoming tax bills giving them time to budget rather than having a nasty shock a short while before the amount is payable.
- Promptly submitting accounts, returns and declarations so that our clients don't have to pay penalties.
COVID-19 Self-employment Income Support Scheme
The income support scheme will cover the three months to May. Grants will be paid in a single lump sum instalment covering all 3 months, and will start to be paid at the beginning of June.

The political message the Chancellor attempted to convey was that this is a budget that shows ‘the government gets things done.’ However, he sounded more like Viv Nicholson, the famous pools winner from 1961 who announced that she was going to “spend, spend, spend”. That did not end well for her.

Working for and with You, Not the Taxman
You pay our bills not the taxman so it is only right that we look after you. We care about our clients, their business, their future.
We’re here to make tax and financial planning easy. We’re here to help ease your financial burden and to find you the most tax efficient way to run your business. We don’t want the taxman to take what’s not his, so we work with you to find out what’s important to you.
A Different Kind of Accountant
We are approachable and easy to talk to. Every client benefits from a dedicated partner and member of staff either of whom they can contact and both of whom they will know and recognise. We get to know our clients, understand how they work and constantly help them to improve and grow their businesses.
We’re business advisers and planners as well as tax experts, and we work tirelessly helping businesses like yours save tax, and become more efficient and financially stronger. And we’re very nice people too.
When did your Accountant last give you £50?
At Handley, Evans & Co we will deduct £50 from our fees for your tax return if you provide to us everything we need to complete your tax return before the 31st July after the end of the tax year.
It gets better! If you are not VAT registered, the VAT saved will make the total saving £60!
Now isn't that a worthwhile reward for being prompt?
