JIM LYONS ACCOUNTING HAVE NEW OFFICES!
I have moved premises from Dalton Mill. Having spent over 2 years in an office in the Dalton Mill complex I have now relocated to
SPEARHEAD WAY, LAWKHOLME LANE, KEIGHLEY BD21 3LA.
This is a newer office situated within the Armour Glass annex
(see exterior picture showing the Mont Ventoux entrance below) and provides a nicer environment for working and seeing Clients.I look forward to welcoming Clients old and new to the new office.
So glad 2015 is almost behind us!
Wishing friends, family and Clients a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Right! I’m back in the saddle after an enforced absence and am raring to go!
If you need your 2014/15 #Self-Assessment doing you need to contact me URGENTLY. The #deadline is 31st January 2016 so time is tight but you CAN avoid a #penalty by contacting me now.
As always, I aim to provide a first-class service for a very reasonable price.
CALL TODAY OR USE THE CONTACT PAGE TO GET IN TOUCH
It’s January again and, of the 11 million UK Self Assessment returns due only 6 million have been completed and submitted. Many of my Clients have either submitted already or, after gentle prompting, have at last supplied their documentation to give me a chance of completion by the 31st January deadline. Some have still to do so and they know who they are!
I hate HMRC penalties, a voluntary tax that far too many small businesses seem happy (or resigned) to pay each year. The self-employed are particularly prone to this. There is absolutely no need to find yourself in a penalty situation, but you have to give your Accountant or Bookkeeper a fighting chance to do the necessary work, to an acceptable standard, in a reasonable time-scale.
We generally provide a high-standard service but, if you give us a Tesco bag full of receipts on 31st January, we are unlikely to be able to submit a quality, optimised, tax return for you.
A worrying trend I have noticed this year, and I am attempting to sort one case out today, is where the Client tries to give his annual pack to the Bookkeeper or Accountant only to find they have “given up” or are “too busy”, leaving the client with a huge problem. Now the vast majority of my colleagues are totally professional and do their absolute best, especially in January but where the problem arises it certainly is a challenge for Client and Accountant. The timescale involved in simply obtaining HMRC authorisation, let alone compiling the Accounts, leaves little room for manoeuvre.
So, if you have not already contacted your Accountant or Bookkeeper I strongly urge you to do so now, without further delay, to at least see if they can accommodate you. Of course, if you experience any difficulty, give me a call and I will sort you out. But you need to do it NOW to give me a chance.
Interesting article in the Keighley News about Dalton Mills.
As the article says, I was doing @Keighleypeople, a local Twitter blog where people from Keighley and surrounds basically talk to “Keighley People” in weekly rotation.
The outside of the Mill was improving visually, so I used a picture as a theme for discussion.
It was quite a popular post and the Keighley News picked it up and made a feature of it.
I have been based in Dalton Mills for a year or so now and am delighted to have several other tenants as clients. With more space becoming available, and a natural “churn” of tenants, this is a very vibrant location and, for a small business like mine, presents many opportunities.
Perhaps, as described in the article, my “Accountancy Business” may be a little grand I believe there is a market for local, convenient and competitive businesses to trade with each other to the benefit of all.
KEEP IT LOCAL!
I have just refreshed my Homepage, and added some pictures.
I would appreciate any comments, positive or otherwise.
My telephones and Internet services are now connected in the office and phone number is 01535 605247.
No excuses now, need to get down to some real work.
I am in the process of opening a new office in Keighley.
I have an office in the Dalton Mills complex on Dalton Lane in Keighley, which I hope to get up and running week commencing 2ns September.
The Address is
I will have a new telephone number in due course but please use my mobile for the time being
I will also post some pictures shortly. It’s not very grand but I am expecting to be spending quite a lot of time there developing my business for existing and, hopefully, new clients.
Hi. Welcome to my new website.
I intend to use this page to communicate in an informal way with existing clients, and hopefully to attract new ones!
I have been running my own Business for a few years now and feel quite encouraged at the number and quality of Clients who trust their Accounts and Tax affairs to me. It is also nice when clients seek more general business advice and my background in Business, Accounting and Administration give me a very wide overview.
It is especially gratifying when an existing Client recommends my services to a colleague or friend, so if you know of anyone or any business that needs Accounting, Bookkeeping VAT and Tax services please feel free to tell them about me, or tell ME about THEM!
Thanks and best regards,
