"Jack Ross and Company in accountancy terms have assisted me in understanding what's required, achieving what is required and putting that together in such a way that they interface between me and the Revenue."
They were the best set of accountants for me
I have very good relationship with my account manager at Jack Ross, he's very good at reminding me to fill my forms in and get them back and also advising you if I've missed something. It's extremely useful to have that back up.
Excellent advice and an understandable explanation of a very complex area of tax and corporate law which other (so called) advisors managed to totally confuse me. Thank you.
We have enjoyed a solid and constructive relationship with JackRoss and Can highly recommend them for accountancy services.

MTD for ITSA delay
Making Tax Digital for income tax self-assessment (MTD for ITSA) was originally set to roll out in 2018, but the road to personal tax digitalisation has been relatively rocky to date. While the Government successfully introduced MTD for VAT for returns starting on or after 1 April 2022, MTD for ITSA has been postponed five[…]
Spring Budget 2023 Overview: A Comprehensive Guide to Key Measures | Jack Ross Chartered Accountants
The Spring Budget 2023 is finally here, and it brings with it a plethora of measures aimed at boosting economic growth and improving the financial outlook for businesses and households alike. In this blog post, we provide a comprehensive overview of the key measures announced in the Budget Statement.
Firstly, we examine the impact of falling natural gas prices on inflation, which is projected to drop to below 3% by the end of the year. This decrease in inflation will help businesses avoid steep increases in payroll and borrowing costs, as well as ease the squeeze on households facing a decline in living standards.
Next, we discuss the Bank of England’s base rate, which is projected to peak significantly lower than the 5% assumed in the Autumn Statement. This change is good news for homeowners and businesses, indicating a more stable financial environment.
We then delve into the critical tax measures highlighted in the Budget Statement under the Chancellor’s focus on Enterprise and Employment. While there was no change to the decision to increase the primary Corporation Tax rate to 25%, the Chancellor announced a Full Expensing approach for qualifying plant and machinery, which aims to incentivize business investment.
The Spring Budget also brings better news for SMEs, with increased R&D relief granted for R&D-intensive businesses. Although this improvement doesn’t reach the levels of relief previously available, it is a positive step forward.
The proposed abolition of the Lifetime Allowance charge, which removes the cap on the amount of pension savings someone can have, is a significant surprise in employment policies. This major shift in government policy will result in a rethink for employees regarding their approach to pension savings.
The Chancellor structured his plans around the four Es, which he believes are critical in unlocking the UK’s national potential: Enterprise, Education, Employment, and Everywhere. However, measures like increased childcare support will take time to materialize and affect growth numbers.
The budget also includes measures supporting R&D and investment in fast-growth sectors. However, it lacks a grand strategy for boosting productivity and overall economic resilience, similar to the US Inflation Reduction Act or the EU’s Green Deal Industrial Plan.
In summary, the Spring Budget 2023 brings relatively better news on the short-term economic outlook and includes several commendable measures. While it doesn’t represent a game-changing budget, it sets the stage for future growth and development.
