Welcome to Lambert Roper & Horsfield Limited Accountants in Calderdale


Updated LRH Response to Coronavirus

At LRH the health and wellbeing of our clients and employees is our number one priority.  That is why, following the government’s advice issued on 16th March in respect of social distancing, we have implemented a policy whereby the majority of employees work remotely.

We will endeavour to continue providing all our clients with full support in what is a challenging time for UK businesses.

In order to achieve this we will require the cooperation of our clients in certain areas.

Telephone and email communications

The plans we have put in place should allow us to divert calls to employees at home and they will have full access to emails.

There may be some instances where routing of phone calls does not go to plan.  If this is the case please be patient with us and if the person you are trying to contact is not available send them an email and they will respond when they are able to do so.

Office Access

The office will still be open during the normal working hours so accounting records and other information can still be posted to us and dropped off where necessary.

If you have any symptoms, have come into contact with an infected person or have been told to self-isolate please do not visit our office.

If you do visit our office we would ask that you remember to follow the guidelines issued by the government including keeping a safe distance, washing your hands and please use the hand sanitiser located on reception.

Client meetings

We usually hold the majority of meetings face to face at our office or at our client’s premises.  Following the government’s advice we will be offering telephone meetings and we are looking into other options.  We will contact you to discuss the best solution if we are due to see you.

Work Timescales

Whilst we hope to work as efficiently as before there may be some logistical issues with the review of work and going forward there may be staff absence due to illness.  Therefore we ask that you are patient with us and that you send us your information in as soon as possible, especially when there are deadlines for submission.

We hope that with your help and with the measures we have implemented we will be able to assist you in the coming weeks and months through this challenge.

Make sure to include SEISS grants on your next tax returns

People who enrolled in the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) have been reminded that they must include income from their grants on tax returns to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), as it is subject to Income Tax and National Insurance.

They should liaise with their accountants so an accurate return can be sent to HMRC, covering the various periods of the scheme to avoid any penalties.

This scheme was set up by the Government to provide support during the Coronavirus pandemic for those who are self-employed, either as a sole trader or a partner in a partnership.

It was originally announced on 26 March 2020 and provided an initial grant for self-employed individuals whose businesses were adversely affected on or before 13 July 2020.

A second grant was then made available for individuals who were ‘adversely affected’ on or after 14 July 2020.

Subsequently, on 1 July 2020, the scheme was extended to provide payments to certain self-employed individuals (or partners in partnerships) who did not originally qualify.

On 24 September 2020, a further extension to the SEISS scheme was announced under which a third and fourth grant would be provided.

The third grant notionally covered the three months from 1 November 2020 to 29 January 2021.

On 3 March 2021, it was announced that the fourth grant would take account of 2019/20 trading profits on tax returns submitted by midnight at the end of 2 March 2021.

A fifth grant was also announced when Chancellor Rishi Sunak presented his 2021 Budget on 3 March, he announced a further extension which will now run until the end of September this year. It was welcome news for many self-employed people throughout the UK.

The fifth and final SEISS grant will cover lost earnings from May onwards, and self-employed individuals and partners can claim it from late July 2021 (the exact date is to be confirmed).

It covers 80 per cent of average self-employed profits if your turnover has fallen by more than 30 per cent; those who haven’t been as badly affected can still get a 30 per cent SEISS grant.

You don’t need to repay a SEISS grant – it is not a loan. However, SEISS grant awards are subject to Income Tax and Class 4 National Insurance contributions and your accountant can advise on this.

The SEISS grants are taxable in the tax year in which they are received. So, the first three SEISS grants are taxable in the 2020/21 tax year and they should be reported in full in your 2020/21 Self-Assessment tax return.

If you’re self-employed and your sole trader business receives a SEISS grant in the fourth or fifth rounds, they’re taxable in the 2021/22 tax year and should be reported on your 2021/22 Self-Assessment return.

To make it easier for self-employed people to enter money received from SEISS grants, HMRC will include a box on the 2020/21 and 2021/22 Self-Assessment tax return forms.
