News update from Overdene House

Over the last few days it has been so light in the mornings that when I’ve woken up I thought I’d overslept; so happily Spring must be just around the corner.

I think everyone here heaved a big sigh of relief following the 31 January tax return deadline. It was a busy month and we can all relax a little again for a short time and catch up on a lot of jobs that get left in January.

I have quite a bit of Personnel news to share with you. We are continuing to expand as a company (and some of us around the waistband!) and I’m delighted to introduce three new team members to you. Lisa Brown, Rita Saini and Robert Dunn. They have all settled well and are enjoying life at K&H.  Incidentally, we are looking for an additional Trainee Accountant, so if you know of someone who might be interested ask them to get in touch.


Cupid’s arrow was working overtime, not just on Valentine’s day, as Poppy and her beau Russell, and Jennifer and her beau Thomas, have recently got engaged.

We wish them all the best for their future together.

Read any good books recently? Been to the cinema recently?  Well, move over Fifty Shades because we have our own Mr Gray here in the office! Andrew’s book Do More of What You Love is available to buy through Amazon or directly on our website.   I can recommend it and  you should check it out. It is about helping the people who run owner-managed businesses, to do more of what they love – in life generally and in their business. Andrew’s book explains exactly how we do this and sets out all the long term planning options you have for your business and for yourself.

Interestingly our Guest Writer this month is Claire Ruston, an editor and writer, who helped Andrew through the final stages of producing his book. You can read her blog here.

Did you know that we also have our own company App which is full of interesting blogs, calculators and news – you can download it completely FREE here.

You can also find us on Twitter: @kandhAccountant – I will keep a look-out for you!

Let’s catch up again soon, in the meantime if you have any feedback on our newsletter – or anything else – do let me know.
