As an accountant I am inherently not a creative person and lack any sort of creative vision or flair, I thrive on balance and certainty. Despite this, or maybe because of it, I have huge admiration for those people that have a talent and flair for being creative and can turn a hobby into a business.
Following up on last weeks blog posting, I wanted to address the key dates and deadlines for Private Limited Companies as there is a greater reporting burden placed upon these businesses that is governed by the Companies Act and enforced by Companies House.
