There’s every opportunity for productive networking at meetings as well as great respect for individual enterprise; members offer one another unlimited encouragement

If you want to get ahead in business join this friendly, proactive Group which is focused on promoting you - and your success

and support while every effort is made to promote one another’s interests.

Welcome to Bolsover Voice Welcome to the first edition of Bolsover Voice.

Check out our ‘out and about section on pages 10 & 11 if you don’t believe me!!

Your April accounting questions answered This month our friendly neighbourhood accountant, James, has a couple of FAQ’s for you to consider…...

Q. I have put my business up for sale. I am self-employed and not VAT registered, but the proceeds from the business sale will take me over the VAT threshold. Do I have to register for VAT and charge VAT on the sale of the business? A. If you sell the business assets and goodwill together, so that the purchaser can pick up where you stop and carry on the business, it will be treated as being a transfer of a going concern and outside the scope of VAT. So you don't have to charge VAT on the business sale or register for VAT. More information about transferring a business as a 'going concern' is given in the VAT leaflet no. 700/9: Transfer of a business as a going concern.
