Victoria Scally News

Get a head start on your 2019 plans, with our handy guide for all of the key accounting dates to pop in your diary. The first deadline of 2019 is the looming Self Assessment Tax Return deadline on the 31st January. A date we know is pretty much the first date every self-employed business owner has looming over them at the start of the new year.

Whether you’re starting out or have been running a business for years, it’s always helpful to have the rest of these to hand.

If you’re a Heelan Associate client, don’t worry, we will remind you with plenty of notice (and frequently) to make sure you can manage your priorities and workload.
