5 Areas Of The Construction Industry To Improve
The construction industry is one of the most well-established and growing sectors on earth, with employment rising 2.6% per year on average between 2015 and 2020.

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) – All You Need To Know
The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) is a scheme set up by HMRC which considers how much tax a subcontractor, not an employee, should pay. Due to the vast amounts of contracted work within the construction sector, the scheme was set up to decrease the loss of revenue which isn’t properly accounted for and therefore incorrectly taxed resulting in the taxpayer suffering. The CIS is basically a set of rules which regulate how contractors should make payments to sub-contractors. Contractors must register for the scheme, who…

The Future Of SMEs – We Want To Know!
To say that the past 18 months has been difficult for businesses, particularly SMEs, is an understatement. From the pandemic to Brexit issues, to the current climate change emergency, more and more issues are facing SME businesses rather than the regular running of a business such as cashflow forecasting, service improvements and day to day operations. The world is a very different place to what it was and with change a constant inevitability, we wanted to hear from SMEs about…

This means it is decentralized and exists free from government control or…

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
