The wind stole my box
It was very windy today.
I woke up this morning to the sound of my recycling bin being blown down the road. Inside it was a bag for papers. Both are nowhere to be seen now, so maybe this is someone telling me to stop recycling. They wouldn't have been stolen - it's not that sort of area. I don't want £200 fines for someone finding an envelope in the wrong box!
On Tuesday a visit to the accountant, a day early (oops) to chat about VAT. I thought I had it clear in my mind, but what I didn't realise was having to work through 160+ prices for what I sell, plus adding caveats all over the place about prices excluding VAT, and then there's the online shopping cart. I hope it doesn't put overseas buyers off - it was a lot simpler when VAT wasn't an issue, but only time will tell if people are really more keen to buy from a VAT registered company or not.
There's a lot of tidying up to do with regard to sending out invoices before the VAT date (1st Dec). I hate doing invoices and receipts because I have to do them manually and it takes me ages to do each one. Next week I am having Sage accounting software installed which will hopefully simplify the whole process into a few clicks.
