The good news is that you don't need to register with the ICO (although the ICO haven't confirmed this that I know of). That's because this is information required to tax purposes in the normal course of business. Of course you still are holding sensitive information and still have the security headache, but at least that's a fee and multiple forms that aren't added.

Apologies Carla, I just saw this. The notification must have got lost. You pay National Insurance on the salary, so no, you don't :)

I love your point about having an overbooked waiting system.

In my local high street, it's the chain who has the brilliant service and the indie who doesn't. Once I even walked out of the indie as I had been there an hour and still hadn't got my tea and flapjack.

So it's a way to find new content to share?

Cake is the path to tax return sanity!

I help one man bands master their money management and do their own accounts and tax returns (to clarify what Mark said).

It works for me as I am slightly obsessed with cake and it works for my brand and client base. 

I'm launching a one-man-band-accountant-in-practice version of my famous Tax Return Toolkit at Accountex this year. It's written to reduce the amount of time you spend chasing clients for paperwork and explain the basics of what's needed in a self assessment. Less emphasis on cake, same emphasis on rewards for the client,, lots of emphasis on when your client needs to contact you for further services (CGT and IHT anyone?).

Thanks for the mention, Mark :)

When I'm in Mental Pajamas mode, I diary 'A Rest' after each chunk. Works wonders.

I stopped myself from being organised. Organised is what I AM (it's the lazy option ladies) and having systems and lists got me too scared to DO.

So the Editorial Calendar went out of the window and now I blog the day before, not committing to anything. Of course I still have a system as that's who I am, but by my standards it's wildly chaotic ;)

I get it as well, and it's me that is being budgeted out, and money spent on creative. It's down to there is always a budget and where you fit. I've lost work to people who were really cheap without much value because they were cheap and the person wanted to spend their hundreds and a few thousand on the people with creative skills.

I divide it up into 'takers', 'givers' and 'givers who can't afford my price but can make up the difference in non-monetary terms'.

I can't pay the full value for some people I want to hire but I do huge promotion instead if they are a great fit for my audience. being so frustrated at not being able to hire who I want is a major factor in driving my business forward at the moment.

I am a stepmum of one and I fortunately experience no guilt. Then again, his dad is very grounded. On the other hand, I do experience non consensual guilt about not having my own children. That's the kind that is in your head and you didn't give it permission to be there!

It's definitely on my list once we get to February and I have time to explore again.
