Welcome to Lambert Roper & Horsfield Limited Accountants in Calderdale


Updated LRH Response to Coronavirus

Following the government’s Plan B advice issued on 8th December in respect of working from home if you can from Monday 13th December 2021, at LRH some of the team will be working from home while the others will continue to work in the office.

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.

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 wearing a face mask, keeping a safe distance, washing your hands and please use the hand sanitiser located on reception.

Client meetings

Face to face meetings at our office or at our client’s premises will continue as long as each client is happy to do so. If clients would prefer, then we can offer telephone meetings or zoom / teams meetings.

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.

Revenue updates guidance on tipping apps

When HM Revenue & Customs’ (HMRC’s) current guidance on the tax treatment of tips and troncs was first published back in 2014, tips and troncs were paid almost exclusively in cash or through card transactions.

Of course, in the eight years since, things have changed dramatically and payments are frequently made via app-based platforms, whether for delivery drivers or waiting staff.

Now, HMRC has updated its guidance to take account of these changes and clarify the tax position that applies to different arrangements.

Importantly, the new guidance does not change the tax status of payments made through app-based platforms. Instead, it offers further clarification of the position and its application in various circumstances.

The two key takeaways are:

  • Tips and troncs passed from an app to an employer without an independent troncmaster are subject to National Insurance and PAYE, even if they are intended by the customer to be passed to a specific member of staff.
  • Tips paid directly by third-party apps to employees are not subject to National Insurance and PAYE. The onus is on employees to notify HMRC of this income.

App-based tipping arrangements can be set up in many different ways, with seemingly small variations in how they’re operated having sometimes significant impacts on the tax positions of employers and employees alike.

It is crucial not to make assumptions about the tax status of any app-based set-up you are using as errors can lead to HMRC inquiries and potentially hefty penalties.
