Bookkeeping Is My Thing

Aedin our excellent bookkeeper

My sister is a nurse – our very own on-call 24-hour health adviser, whether she likes it or not! There’s a reassurance in knowing that she’s always at the end of the phone if there’s even a slight medical emergency. Her husband is self-employed and funnily enough she feels the same way about me. I’m

Capital Gains Tax Tips

I am off to Tayto Park. Not being the bravest I will do the roller coasters and will love them when I am getting off. Between theme parks and the start of the hurling it is a very exciting weekend. You’d have to fancy Waterford against Tipp on Sunday given recent form and the home

Tax Return Season – A Whistle Stop Tour

The cat is missing me a lot. He’s not as friendly as he used to be, and he feels all the love and affection he shared with me is a one-way street. I have explained to him that this is a very busy time of year. I must dedicate my time to our clients who

Things Not to Do in Business or You’re Dead

I went out for a run yesterday morning. My last hard training run before the Belfast marathon on Sunday week. The plan was a 1 mile warm up and a 1 mile cool down but 10 fast miles between the easy ones. The 10 fast weren’t as fast as I wanted them to be. During

Loan From My Company – Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey

Tropical conditions here in Tramore today, wet and warm. All we are missing are the palm trees and colourful birds. The seagulls are not as noticeable. The blur of cars and the chatter of school children are more prevalent sounds as we get back to normality. We have an exciting weekend ahead with the All-Ireland

Company Director Tax Returns – Danger!

Hello from Sunny Tramore. It’s only delightful to see the sun shining through the window when I extract myself from the bed. The small slivers of bright sunshine make that difficult task a bit easier. After a bowl of Flahavan’s finest, it’s on to the laptop for my Friday morning routine of writing this blog.

10 Top Tax Tips – Renting Out Property – Part 1

Greetings from Tramore. Another very promising day here. The washing is on the line, the Super League is dead in the water. Jose Mourinho is gone from Spurs. Another big payoff! I only found out about that on Tuesday night given the furore over the Super League. Greed and avarice took hold of the 12
