Marlow News - September 2019

Back to school and full steam ahead!... 

With the little darlings back at school and the summer a distant memory, it’s now time for all businesses to plan ahead for the next 90 days.  

I’ve heard some of our team saying they’re looking forward to getting back into a routine after shaking off the post-holiday blues and setting testing but achievable targets to motivate for this next quarter leading up to the next great diversion - Christmas!  

We’re no different to most businesses, in missing team members over the school holidays whilst the free childcare provider (known as school) has been out. On the flip side of that particular (workflow) coin, if you haven't already furnished us with you’re your accounts and tax return information you’ll probably have been sent our automated chaser emails.  

We trust you appreciate the regular reminders but please let us know if you are receiving these when they’re not due, as glitches in the system are not unknown!   

We’re recruiting again … 

This time we’re looking for an additional Client Manager to help us manage the growth we’ve experienced over the past 12 months. 

So, if you know of anyone with at least 2 years accountancy practice experience (and the related tax knowledge) please let us know, and we’ll make it worth your while. After all, we’d rather pay you a finders fee than pay a recruitment agency!    

Does anyone need a History Graduate?

Yes, it’s true that Isaac, our director of first impressions (Receptionist come Marketing Assistant) is staying on for a bit longer but not forever!... and is, in fact, looking for a proper job!  

So if you desperately have the ideal opening for an expert on Henry VIII, Napolean, Hitler et al,  please let us know as we have just the man—to pass on!.

It’s just like waiting for a bus… 

You wouldn't believe it but 30% of our team all have birthdays in a 1-week window. And as you’d expect we always get them a nice birthday card to tell them how great they are, but don’t tell the taxman as he’d probably want to tax them on the benefit in kind! (only joking - a card is fine but not a present!)    

We are part of the Xeinadin Group. The firm of the future!
