2014/2015 Tax Year We made it !!! Not only to the end of the winter and into Spring but also nearly to the end of the tax year. All too quickly we are at 5 April 2014 and we are hurtling into the 2014/2015 tax year. There is always lots to do at the end of the tax year and this year there are even a few changes. Don’t forget if you run a payroll that it is now the first anniversary of the Real Time Information (RTI) system – now of course I haven’t reminded you about this because I expect you to buy a birthday cake and sing Happy birthday – although you can if you like! The real reason is that now the gloves are off. Over the last 12 months if you were late filing your real time submissions there were no fines – just a letter advising you. From 6 April 2014 the fines start so make sure that you don’t file your submissions late. If you don’t want the added pressure then why not talk to us about our payroll service. Here at KBA we try to provide the best value for money that we can and prices start from as little

as £10 plus VAT per week. The other “big” news for payroll users is the new employment allowance which could cut your National Insurance bill by £2,000. There are some businesses which can’t claim this allowance and if you are not sure if you are affected, then why not call us and let us help you find out. The important fact to remember is that you must specifically claim this Employment Allowance and this has to be done after you have filed your employment summary to 5 April 2014. For more information on how to claim this allowance or for help with your payroll – why not come and talk to us. After all if we can help you save £2000 over the year then surely our low fees will be a bargain and you will be quids in! Of course 5 April 2014 not only marks the end of the tax year it also marks the date upon which a lot of individuals particularly self employed persons

and company directors need to start thinking about their tax returns. On 6 April as regular as clockwork HMRC will issue notices to complete tax returns and these will be sent out to all those tax payers that need to complete a return. Of course the deadline for submission is 31 January 2015 but it is important not to get caught out. Here at KBA we had a lot of new clients contacting us because they didn’t realise they needed to complete a tax return until either a notice arrived – or one of the follow on letters arrived chasing the return. The fine starts at £100 but quickly escalates and there are a lot of better things to spend your money on than tax penalties.

time. Hopefully this will help to work out what you need to do and give you time to get all your books and records ready so there are no nasty surprises. Here at KBA we don’t just help with tax returns – our list is endless – from accounts through company formations to VAT registrations, cash flows through to self assessment there is lots than we can help with so why not give us a call. We can even help you with your tax credit claims (authority is required).

Headache Relief With Indian Head Massage Tension headaches are caused by the tightening of muscles over the scalp, forehead, back of head, upper part of the neck and around the jaw. They may be brief or last several days. Severity of pain will vary and it is commonly described as a feeling of a tight band around the head and the feeling that the head is being squeezed in a vice.

sufficiently to cope with the stress. Tension headaches can then occur as a result of a process of the muscles knotting in the shoulder and neck which leads to the tightening of the muscles described above.

An overload of stress can make a person extremely tired yet unable to sleep or relax

This type of headache can often be relieved immediately by Indian head massage, which is a combination of neck, shoulder and head massage techniques. Friction applied across the tight muscles in the neck and across the base of the skull will begin to ease the pain. Massage also encourages relaxation and helps to lower stress so therefore treats the cause of the headache as well as the pain symptoms. Most headaches are tension headaches, but sometimes the origin can be traced to another cause such as flu, menstruation, high blood pressure, hunger or simply a noisy environment. If a headache is accompanied by nausea, fever, vomiting or disturbed vision professional medical advice should be sought.
