The Women's Organisations 'Business Club' were treated to 'Tax Tips and Finance Facts' this month with RMC Accountancy and ExcelAce.
It was a lovely evening at the organisation's new home at 54 St James Street. Thanks to a lucky turn in the weather and the fabulous speakers the business women attending enjoyed fantastic views across the Mersey from the buildings roof terrace while networking as well as two interesting talks on a topic daunting to most new business starts. Local business A2Z cafe based in Liverpool ONE kindly supplied free platters of sandwiches and fruit for the evening which went down a treat with the networkers.
Helen and Emma from RMC Accountancy kicked off the evening showing us "the good, the bad and the ugly" of record keeping, encouraging the women to 'keep organised book keeping records' and to set aside your taxable part of your income and not even consider it yours. Business club members then took full advantage of having a couple of accounting experts in the room and grilled the girls on all kinds of tax and accounting issues getting some really useful advice.
Then after some more networking it was the turn of ExcelAce Traci Williams. Traci managed to perform a small miracle making spread sheets come to life showing some simple tricks for helping to keep your records neat and easy to access.
Feedback left by the women at the end of the night included:
"Friendly, informative, supportive"
