Update from Overdene House

My car tax is due on 30 September, and apparently the benefits of a paper tax disc have now become redundant, as the DVLA and police now rely on the electronic vehicle register to check if a vehicle is taxed or not.  From 1 October motorists will no longer need to display a tax disc in their vehicle but they will still need to tax it, they just won’t get a tax disc.   I understand this will save around £10 million every year, but I must say I will miss not having a tax disc on my car – must remember to get it on line though!  Here’s a link with full details: car tax changes

I have lots of K&H personnel news for you this month.

Jackie retirement
You will recall that Jackie French retired last month and we popped a cork or two and gave her a good send-off on her recent retirement.

Jackie’s replacement is Laverne Fugeti who is settling in nicely in her role of Payroll Manager and has already met a number of our payroll clients.

I’m also delighted to introduce you to Teresa Simmons who has joined us as a Bookkeeper and you can read more about Laverne and Teresa on the Our Team section of our website >> here

We are looking to expand and strengthen the team further and we are currently recruiting for an Accounts and Audit Senior – full details >> here
If you know of anyone who would fit the bill do ask them to get in touch.

Congratulations are extended to Account Managers, Chris Maffey, Stacey Delve and Poppy Ling who have all recently passed exams bringing them all that little bit closer to being fully qualified.

In other K&H news, if you are visiting Overdene House, I hope you like our new outside signage which has recently been installed >>

Finally, here is some hot off the press newsAndrew Gray has been busy putting his literary skills to the test and has written a book about succession planning.  I’ve had a sneak preview and can recommend it – watch this space for news of the release date and for a series of blog posts over the coming months which will feature the key messages of Andrew’s book.
