Anyone on here an accountant or know one that can do some ‘creative’ accounting?
I’m a sole trader about to go limited and need an accountant to sort all my expenses, tax write offs etc.

Buying a car off my friend and trying to agree on a fair price based off online valuations, it's in great condition as I've been in it loads and I've put the mileage into the online quotes.

Any advice on how to get a suitable price based on the varying quotes?

confused - 7.4k
autotrader - 6.6k
whatcar - 5.8k

Thanks!

I can check the cap and glasses valuations for you if you want, they are what most traders use for pricing. PM me the reg and mileage and I can check tomorrow for you at work.

where abouts are you?

my recommendation would be use a specialist loft conversion firm…also pin them down on time. Lofts should not take that long, 4-6 weeks. They now all should come through the back straight into the loft. The break through from upstairs should come near the end before the 2nd fix guys come in.

East London - going with an architect for the design (he's also doing other designs for other floors of the house that need work), then taking it to a loft specialist to build.

does anyone have any experience with webinar platforms?

we are going to be facilitating a 1hr webinar where 6 experts dial in to discuss x y z in a few months. we expect to have around ~100 people viewing it live (with the ability to submit questions to experts). we have up to £10k to spend (lol) but don't see it costing that much. however it is vital we have the best performing and reliable platform there is. it has to look extremely professional. not some shonky webex

@swede check zoom out, I think they do everything you need and the cost is well below your budget.
