As Christmas draws closer, many contractors will be finalising their plans for the festive season.

You know who is in charge of wrapping presents, what time you’re going to travel to the in-laws and who’s cooking the turkey. But you shouldn’t forget about the tax return deadline in amongst all the merriment.

After all, you only have until 31 January to complete and pay your Self-Assessment.

Billy Barnett Wins Umbrella.co.uk February Employee of the Month

“Congratulations to Billy Barnett, a hard-working member of the Customer Services Team and the February Employee of the Month. Billy is extremely customer focussed and certainly a character within the office. We often have to discuss his work attire! Currently he’s soldiering on wearing one work shoe, one trainer and is blaming this on a ‘dodgy ankle’.  Well done Billy.” – Sarah Postlethwaite, Customer Services Manager

If you’ve tried it before and not got on with it or never installed it then now is a great time to pick it up for your smartphone and see the powerful list of features that you can control from a simple touchscreen.

With banking, tax notifications, time tracking and a slick new interface all added over the last two years since it’s launch the mobile app really does cram a lot of functionality into the App.

FreeAgent on the Go

FreeAgent continues to update its mobile app to bring the functionality more in line with the browser edition.

December brought some new features to the Mobile App, many of which may be of use to our clients;

The ever-popular Tax Timeline has been included within the App with the option to turn on notifications. This can help you to make sure you don’t miss any important VAT or Corporation Tax payments. Umbrella Accountants will continue to confirm how much is due and when but it acts as a good aide memoire in today’s busy work environment.
