Join Us At The Liverpool Business Fair

If you are looking for a new accountant then perhaps this would be more easily done in an informal setting rather than an arranged meeting.

Jan McDermott & Co are exhibiting at the Liverpool Business Fair and are keen to meet the region’s new and growing businesses. 

The Liverpool Business Fair will take place at Liverpool Football Club on 25th March and is expected to attract over 700 visitors. A couple of the team will be representing the company and will be ready to answer any accountancy questions you have.


An Accountants View On Ed Balls' Recent Comment...

What is an accountant’s view of Ed Ball’s recent comment that people should get a written receipt for all work done even if it's just £10 for having a hedge cut?

Rachel Wood responds;

"It's always good business practice to keep accurate and up-to-date records of all transactions, no matter what your business size. We advise our clients to record all expenses and transactions accurately, regardless of how they are paid. For all businesses, keeping a receipt or invoice of the transaction is the best way to stay on top of their taxes and make sure they don't get caught out further down the line."
