Maximise your earning potential by valuing your worth and managing projects the way you work best. Yet, as you’ll be aware, it comes with obligations, not least of which is the Self-Assessment tax return that rolls around annually. The end of any financial year is a stark reminder that it’s time to start collating your accounts, and it’s never too early to start preparing for your tax return.

You don’t need an accountant to help you do this. Taking the DIY approach is easier than you might think, and you can save on average £250 by doing it yourself. …


We’ve been hard at work here at CircleLoop HQ during the summer months and today I’m delighted to announce a number of exciting new features and improvements to CircleLoop, which are available now!

CircleLoop, the phone system for modern-day businesses, welcomed Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and MP for Rossendale and Darwen, Jake Berry, to mark the opening of our brand new HQ in Rossendale.

If you’re in business, the chances are that at some point you’ll need to arrange a Conference Call, where a number of different people can be bridged into the same telephone call.

But generally your traditional phone service isn’t set up to handle these sort of calls, so you need to sign-up to a separate conferencing system to arrange this. And unfortunately this generates additional cost, hassle, more passwords to remember and software to install.

But we just accept it, because this is the way we’ve always done it, right?

Not any more!
