Brexit – A Brave New World (part one)

16th Dec 2020

As I write the UK and EU are in the final throws of trying to bash out a post-Brexit trade deal. The atmosphere is fraught with issues of fishing, state aid and the future governance of whatever arrangements they can hammer out (or otherwise).   Whatever happens, things are going to change.

7th Dec 2020

Don’t know about you but it seems that the Coronavirus has now permeated everything.  Our every thought and action seems to be dominated by the bug. It’s changed our behaviours and the way we work.

Simplify With Expensify

16th Aug 2019

Regular readers cannot fail to note that I’m a huge advocate of technology. Whether you realise it or not, accounting in the future will be transformed by a range of automated software products.  Mobile apps, cloud computing and purpose-built software solutions will take the grind out of managing corporate finances. Bring it on, I say! […]

Accounting and Fitness, can the two really be alike?

12th Feb 2019

Accounting and Fitness, can the two really be alike? I know what you are probably thinking, accounting and fitness couldn’t possibly have any similarities. Well, that’s where you are incorrect. Accountancy must be a well-oiled machine, just like the way fitness helps you run smoothly. Working with Alistair Mills has really opened up my eyes […]
