Cardens Accountants open their doors for #BDFOpenStudios

Published on 27 August 2013, by in Blog, News.


After the success of Cardens throwing open our doors for last year’s Open Studios week – every session sold out – we are back bigger and better this year.  Each day we are running a different topic that we think you will find useful.

There are one to one sessions with our team of qualified accountants during the day if you want to discuss your own circumstances in private.

This year we will be also running lunch time group sessions and have managed to secure some great speakers


Day 1 – Stress-free record keeping? How about Zero Stress!

Bookkeeping is a pain but it has to be done. It stops you from running your business and it keeps you from your family and friends. What if however, it could be easier?

We are pleased to have Xero (pronounced “zero” – a leading cloud based accounting package) come in to give you a personal introduction to their software.

If that wasn’t enough we have two guest speakers

  • Receipt Bank an automated system for inputting your purchase invoices which works seamlessly with Xero
  • E-advantage Solutions a local business who has a great gamified Customer relationship management (CRM) that you must see.


Day 2 – More great options for stress-free record keeping with our friends from FreeAgent –

Variety is the spice of life and we understand that one package does not fit all.

Therefore, we are very proud to present Freeagent as an alternative cloud based accounting software. We will also tell you how this integrates with Receipt Bank as well as numerous other software add-ons to make your life easier.

Please come along to hear how Freeagent can change your world.


Day 3 – How using a Limited Company can save you money

Is your net profit more than £30,000 per year? Are you a sole trader or in a partnership?

We could reduce your tax bill by using a limited company – sounds good right? Well come and join us to find out how.


Day 4 – How to win at the VAT game

Registered for VAT or nearing the £79,000 registration threshold? It isn’t all bad news; you could be a VAT winner.

Let us help you take the pain out of being vat registered by telling you about the various schemes available to you to make your life easier and more profitable!


Day 5 – Making a claim for Research & Development tax credits in the digital world

Are you in the development game, always pushing the boundaries of what is possible?  The tax system can work for you!

Come see Keith Hall FCA for information on possible tax credits you might be missing out on.
