questioniconThanks to Chris for this question asked at a workshop we ran this week for Southwark Council.      It is illegal to pay any child who is aged less than 13 years of age. If the child is aged 13 and over, you will need to apply to your local education authority for a work permit.   Do not pay a child if you do not have a permit - you can be fined up to £1,000 for not having a permit.    The permit will detail what hours the child can do, which will be dependent on their age.

questioniconIt is common for a coach at a club to do two specific types of work - coaching for the club where the club pay the coach, and coaching for individual members where the member pays the coach directly. A coach providing individual tuition directly to members does NOT have any impact on whether a coach is truly self-employed for the work they do for a club where the club pays the coach directly - HMRC (tax authorities) would treat the two types of work as being completely separate.

thumbsupiconThere are still a significant number of clubs, coaches and representative associations who believe that a coach must be employed by a club if the club tells the coach where and when they must work, and if the coach has to work as part of a team. This is not correct - a self-employed coach CAN be told where and when they will coach, work as part of a team, be required to wear a uniform, etc., so long as the coach fulfils one of the two other criteria HMRC (tax authorities) impose on a self-employment relationship - substitution or financial risk.

With another self-assessment deadline gone, now is a good time for coaches to review their bookkeeping records to ensure they won't have any problems if they are chosen for a tax inspection by HMRC. Here are our top five bookkeeping tips for coaches to get the new financial year off to a good start.
Club, Coach, Latest, Web Design / 20.01.2015

We were recently asked to review a new website for a club which had been designed by one of the club's members.    They were very pleased with the design and the content and wanted us to review it from an IT perspective. Our first impressions were also very positive.  Written in Wordpress, the site ticked all the boxes for content - lots of pictures of club members, great examples of the benefits the club offers (get fit, have fun, meet like-minded people), simple navigation, integration with social media, BUT...   the site was not 'responsive'.

questioniconWe are asked this question frequently and it is important to make sure receipts are correctly recorded and stored. Scanned receipts ARE accepted by HMRC for both self-employed persons and limited companies, contrary to the advice given by some high street accountants and also by the HMRC helpline when we rang them to see what advice they would give (moral of the story - don't rely on the HMRC helpline, it's rubbish!).
