Dear <<First Name>>,
Well, we've made it to the end of the first month of 2016. How has it been so far for you?
As per New Year tradition we're sure you have been planning how to do things differently this year or repeat the great work you did last year. We'd love to hear from you if you have growth on the agenda for 2016, as we have been supporting a number of clients with this goal in mind.
This month is Self Assessment month for us - so we have been very busy getting all our SA clients sorted for the 31st Jan. We have got some date reminders for you at the bottom of the email with regards to when things need to be in by and when you have to make payments by - so be sure to have a look.
In our client spotlight this month - we introduce you to the lovely Susan Rose of Susan Rose China.
If you have any questions or would like to speak to Simon Towers or one of our other accountants about your business, please do call us on 01788 577 613 (Rugby) or 01908 564 701 (Stony Stratford) or just reply to this email to set-up a time to chat.
Business Spotlight: Susan Rose China
Susan Rose has a busy, thriving business based in the village of Newnham, Northamptonshire. She was recently spotlighted in the Northampton Chronicle as well (you can read the article here: "Hobby Business into a business for Northampton-based fin bone china designer".)
Susan is a Graphic designer, trained at an art school in London, including a year at Chelsea School of Art. She is passionate about the work she does and about providing the best product possible. She only uses British made fine bone china from Stoke-on-Trent (the heart of English of bone china industry) as its the strongest china to work with (see her standing on bone china cups pictured left).
She makes bespoke gifts, and has worked with some amazing clients (including royalty) - creating trophies or memorable cups and plates for horse racing, yachting, you name it! (See picture below of Ben Ainslie presenting one of her plates to lucky winners Jamie Matheson and John Caulcutt who are co owners of a particularly stunning and beautiful classic yacht, Mariquita).
You can find more of Susan's work (including her very popular "Mug of History") on her website or you can follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
We work with Susan to support her with her annual accounts, Corporation Tax and of course any challenges and opportunities that arise with her rapid growth.
