Last year's budget brought with it news that more change was ahead for the contracting sector when it was announced that the Government is due to begin a consultation on whether to extend the off-payroll rules into the Private Sector. Given this, in this month's edition we look at the changes over the last couple of years and whether such changes have had their desired effect.

Unless you've been living in a cave you'll have noticed that the Personal Tax Return deadline is now upon us! You have until the 31st January to file your personal tax return. Last year 840,000 people missed the deadline and unless you have a 'reasonable excuse' you could be looking at an immediate £100 penalty, so if you haven't already done so, now is the time to get that return filed.

And finally, we have some great news! For the second year in a row we have been voted the Best Umbrella Company of 2017 and also the Runner Up for Best Contractor Accountant (Large) of 2017. This is the fourth time we've won the Best Umbrella Company award and the sixth time we've been voted runner up in the Best Contractor Accountant category. Given that these awards are voted for by contractors makes the win feel even more special as it proves once again how much you value the great customer service we deliver.
