Small Buisnesses Mid-Year Payroll Tax Solution

ezPaycheck 2010 payroll software, from Halfpricesoft.com, makes it simple and easy to change payroll software or begin using payroll software for the first time – even for companies in the middle of their fiscal year. Traditionally, small businesses have had two choices for automating their payroll. Either purchase expensive, complicated software with more functions than they need or hire an accountant. Designed specifically to be run by business owners or managers without training as an accountant, ezPaycheck provides all the features a small business needs without a hefty price tag, complicated interfaces or features they won’t use.

But one thing often stands in the way of making this change for improvement…

“We’ve heard from many customers that they held off changing to ezPaycheck for too long because they feared the momentous task of transferring data mid-year, and the window for such a change between fiscal years is very small,” said Halfpricesoft.com founder Dr. Ge. “But when they finally did it, they found it was incredibly easy to make the change, even in mid year. We want to get this information out to other business owners and managers before they wait longer than they need to.”

Forms for entering year-to-date data on ezPaycheck’s intuitive interface has always been simple, but the 2010 edition includes enhancements that makes the software even more user friendly. The easy-to-use interface enables businesses to convert over to ezPaycheck in just a few hours — not days. Smaller companies will spend even less time on the conversion.

At only $89 per installation, ezPaycheck 2010 is affordable for any business—no matter how large or how small. Business owners and payroll managers can try ezPaycheck 2010 totally risk free by downloading it from www.halfpricesoft.com. This fully functional version is free to try without obligation for 30 days. A sample database is included with the download package to make sampling ezPaycheck 2010 payroll software even easier, so no time is wasted entering test data. After the trial period, a license key must be purchased for continued use. All the data user entered will stay there.

Brookson’s umbrella company customers work with a wide range of recruitment businesses. The Experian partnership enables Brookson to continue to be a compliant service provider while meeting the speed of set up required by both its contractor customers and the recruitment businesses.

Where a ‘fail’ or ‘refer’ is signalled, a supporting tool called Validate Plus performs a remote check on information contained in official documents, such as a passport number, without the customer having to part with these.

Andrew Sloan, Head of New Business at Brookson, explained: “Introducing new and innovative solutions is something Brookson continue to demonstrate across both its limited company and umbrella company service lines. This latest addition will further streamline our joining process, in many cases allowing customers to join on the same day, provided relevant checks are passed.”

It’s great that Brookson is integrating our product range so effectively, combining Validate Plus and Authenticate Pro to offer efficient and rapid validation of customer details and make the customer acquisition process less of a headache.”

Brookson Launches New Healthcare Initiative For Customers

Brookson, a leading tax accountant and support services provider, has negotiated an exclusive discount with the leader in health and wellness care, Bupa, for private medical insurance.

The 25 per cent discount is applicable to Brookson customers and their immediate family to provide peace of mind now and in the future. This initiative is available across all Brookson’s service lines which include self employed customers working through their own limited company, or as a sole trader, as well as customers working through Brookson’sumbrella company as employees.

Andy Linaker, strategic business manager of Bupa, added: “Self-employed individuals are some of the most vulnerable workers in the marketplace when it comes to illness or accidents. With their focus often around securing contracts and ensuring a regular flow of work, arranging private healthcare typically falls to the bottom of the priority list. While the UK is fortunate enough to have the NHS, it is important not to underestimate the impact that prolonged waiting lists or extended treatment can have on the income of a self-employed individual.”

Bupa’s private medical insurance provides flexibility and swift access to treatments, with the minimum amount of fuss. By working closely together Brookson and Bupa plan to enhance the Bupa offering and create a variety of bespoke benefits for Brookson customers.

Brookson’s approach is to provide additional benefits to customers on top of accountancy advice and support services. Brookson want to provide their self employed and sole trader customers with the ability to plan ahead and minimise the impact on income as much as possible, should illness occur. Bupa recognise the challenges that self employed professionals face during periods of illness making them an ideal partner.

Wisteria are now offering a high quality Self Assessment Tax Return service, alongside their existing services which include accountancy services, tax compliance and planning, company secretarial services and business plans.

Nick Tagg, Wisteria’s new Head of Taxation Services brings with him a wealth of experience from his time working for a large accountancy firm in the City of London, in addition to working for the Inland Revenue (now HM Revenue and Customs).

As a result, Wisteria will be better placed to continue offering corporation tax advice and compliance services, VAT registration and VAT returns, inheritance tax planning and capital gains tax planning as well as an expert self assessment tax return service.

Andrew Millet, principal of Wisteria explains: “The skills that Nick Tagg brings with him means that Wisteria can now offer a wider range of tax compliance and tax advisory services, not widely available outside the larger accountancy practices. The increasing complexity of self assessment, corporation tax and inheritance tax means that a higher standard of advice is required. Nick’s arrival means that Wisteria now has the opportunity to work with clients that have very complex tax requirements.”

Wisteria’s tax services (including personal tax advice) are comprehensive and provide not only a full compliance service but also a thorough review of the client’s personal tax exposure with tax planning in mind. In addition, clients will receive an ongoing review of their affairs to ensure that all tax saving opportunities are exploited.
