It’s Back To Work Now – The Holidays Are Over!!

Ray Stewart Business, General Leave a Comment

Yes.  The holiday season is officially over today.  Our youngest went back to school this morning with a lot of very blue air around his head!  Our daughter starts College next week and our eldest son returns soon to uni to do his final year.

Having just updated this blog to WordPress 2.6 a couple of weeks ago, I found to my horror that it needed updating again when I came back to work on Tuesday.  So, with fingers crossed and tongue very much in cheek, I went through the upgrade proceedure manually once again.  It didn’t seem so bad this time and all went smoothly – so far at least!

Over the holiday season I have been asked to write a short post about business records – will the same set of records cover VAT requirements and corporation tax needs.  So I will get on with that hopefully later today.  I have a number of other topics I want to talk about as well.  I have found there is nothing more stimulating to the creative juices than sitting on a lakeside with a fishing rod in hand with my mind just drifting – well it works for me anyway.  I always have my little notebook with me and the number of ideas that have been jotted down in there this summer has truly surprised me.

So lots of information to look out for over the next few weeks.

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
