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.

The New LRH Client Portal


We are delighted to announce that the LRH client portal (powered by Onvio, a Thomson Reuters company) is now fully operational… Continue reading →

Furlough scheme update – Publication of claims and employees serving notice

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has confirmed that employees serving notice cannot be claimed for from the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) from 1 December 2020 onwards.

It has also confirmed further details of plans to disclose details of claims made by employers from December onwards.

Notice periods

The change means employers cannot claim furlough grants in respect of employees serving any contractual or statutory notice periods from 1 December onwards. This includes employees serving notice of redundancy, as well as those who are serving notice of resignation or retirement.

In circumstances from 1 December onwards where you have already submitted a claim and an employee subsequently begins a notice period, you must make an adjustment.

For claims relating to November, you can still claim for employees serving statutory notice periods. However, CJRS grants cannot be used to substitute redundancy payments.

Redundancies must be made in accordance with employment law, while statutory redundancy and statutory notice pay must be calculated based on an employee’s usual wages.

Publications of claims

HMRC has also published further details of plans to publish information about claims for periods from December onwards.

HMRC previously confirmed plans to publish the names and registration number of limited companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) claiming CJRS grants.

It has now clarified that this applies to all employers claiming from the scheme, including individuals, ordinary partnerships and trusts, unless they can demonstrate doing so would lead to a “serious risk of violence or intimidation”.

HMRC will require evidence of this threat, which could include:

  • A police incident number;
  • Documentary evidence of a threat or attack; or
  • Evidence of possible disruption or targeting.

At the same time, HMRC has also said that, in addition to employer names and reference numbers, it will also publish “an indication of the value of the claim”.

Further information about what this will mean in practice and how to request that claim information is not published is expected by the end of November.

For advice on furlough and the CJRS, please contact us today.
