Covid-19 2 months in

May 29, 2020
Here we are at the end of May and we are seeing a glimpse of what the "new normal" is going to be like. So many restrictions  to keep ourselves and others safe. For many people it has been, and will continue to be, hard to keep going. Hard to keep positive despite all the inspirational stories we hear. You may feel you can't compete with these wonderful people! All the success stories, all the winners. 

Just remember those people are like you - they worry and cry about the future for themselves, their families and if they run a business, large or small, they worry about their employees and the future of the business. Just keep going one day at a time, do your best, and we will get to where we want to be. We can all help each other in any way that we can, and if we can just hold on, and keep ourselves and those around us safe, we will all have a future where we can hug each other, kiss our families and go out and enjoy life again without worrying about what we are doing. 

Stay safe and take care.

 A lot is made these days in adverts and social media etc about the joys of doing your own accounts and running your whole business from your mobile phone or tablet including VAT returns and Payrolls. If you can do that then good on you if you are confident enough to do it then that’s fin...
