Helping employers with the Kickstart Scheme
There is now a link to the online application for adding more jobs or employers to your grant agreement.
The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. Employers of all sizes can apply for funding which covers 100% of the National Minimum Wage or the National Living Wage depending on the age of the participant.
Employers can spread the job start dates to 31 December 2021.

Back to school: Remind employees about support with childcare costs
With children now back at school and more employees going back to work full time due to the withdrawal of CJRS support, they may need to start thinking about childcare.
Setting up a “Tax-Free” Childcare Account will help pay towards the cost of childminders, breakfast and after school clubs, nursery fees and approved play schemes.
For every £8 an eligible family pay into the special account the government adds £2, up to £2,000 a year, or up to £4,000 a year if a child is disabled.
Please see here for more information. 

Business entertaining and tax relief 
Expenditure on business entertainment is not allowable as a deduction against profits. Nor may a deduction be made for any expenditure which is incidental to business entertainment. The meaning of ‘incidental’ is not defined by HMRC but should be interpreted to mean any expenditure that is incurred directly or indirectly in connection with the provision of entertainment.
This might include payments to a third party for the organisation of entertainment or the costs of issuing invitations to customers.

Could you benefit from additional tax relief?
Couples may be eligible to reduce their Income Tax by up to £252 a year by sharing their Personal Allowances.
HMRC has announced that nearly 1.8 million married couples and those in civil partnership are using Marriage Allowance to save up to £252 a year in Income Tax.
Marriage Allowance allows married couples, or those in civil partnerships, to share their Personal Tax Allowances if one partner earns below £12,570 a year, and the other is a basic rate taxpayer.
Couples can transfer 10% of their tax-free allowance to their partner (£1,260 for 2021 – 2022 tax year), significantly reducing the amount of annual tax they pay.

Farewell to furlough
The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) winds down this month. Initially the government paid 80% of the wages of people who couldn't work, or whose employers could no longer afford to pay them - up to a monthly limit of £2,500. There’s been a sliding scale since.
Now CJRS will close on September 30. Calculating 'flexible furlough' can become very complicated so if you're unsure in the meantime let Barringtons Payroll take the headache away.
