MOJO Memo July 2022

Full-service financial support

Update From Our Founder - Claire Flinders

Claire Flinders

During June and July, the team have been taking some of their well-earned holidays! When team members are away it has been great to see how the rest of the team pulls together to cover each other’s roles. It’s part of the Mojo ethos that we can all work together to help to deliver a good service to our customers. Each person has their own defined roles and responsibilities and their own clients who they are the dedicated account manager for but it is also great that we are able to step in to provide cover. I will be taking time off in August but I know I can rely on the team while I am away!

Team News

We have a growing base of clients based in Cornwall now and to provide better and more localised support we now have a couple of new team members who have joined the Mojo family who are based in Cornwall. Dani is our bookkeeper there providing bookkeeping services on Xero or Sage.

Paige is our admin assistant who is helping with calendar management, emails and team coordination.

Work Updates

This month we have been working with a few businesses who we have come to us to help with implementing new systems and processes. One is a letting agent who needs to link his booking software into Quickbooks and access regular management accounts and cashflow reports. Another one is involved in organic food and we helped them to set up Xero and link in eCommerce apps to ensure they can view their sales information correctly. We are also using a tool called Float which gives a detailed cashflow forecast. The world of accounting and bookkeeping is constantly involved and we are always keeping up to date with the latest changes in software to give the best result and value for money for our clients.


5 Ways SMEs can get financial support for their business

1. Claim up to £5,000 with the Employment Allowance

Employment Allowance is a tax relief which allows eligible businesses to reduce their National Insurance contributions (NICs) bills each year. Your clients can claim this if they’re a business, and their employer Class 1 National Insurance liabilities were less than £100,000 in the previous tax year. Last month we increased the Employment Allowance from £4,000 to £5,000 to further benefit SMEs. That’s a new tax cut worth up to £1,000 for nearly half a million SMEs (30% of all businesses). This includes around 50,000 businesses which will be taken out of paying NICs and the Health and Social Care Levy entirely. Find out more on GOV.UK.
