So we're heavy into GDPR things at the moment, but I've had to deal with the Office for National Statistics this week on behalf of clients.

They have a small family partnership, not big, <£100k sales. Yet the ONS want information from them about trade. Ok, many businesses get data requests, maybe once in a blue moon. Rarely anyway.

But ONS want monthly sale...

We all love a bargain. Especially the "buy nine coffees, get your tenth one free" type cards.

Used in the correct way, they work fabulously. I am a sucker for it. It works on me. If I have a choice between BP and Esso, I'll choose BP because I can add my Nectar points. The loyalty programme has worked. It's drawn me to BP instead of Esso.

Coffee shops often...

In 1750, old Mr. Lowndes, the famous Secretary of the Treasury, used to say; "Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves..."

Does that mean you have to be super-tight?

Well, no, but think of this, as your business gets bigger, the little things add up.

When you're a new small business, giving away the odd thing here and there, or doi...

Had contact with a client last week who had an issue with a virus called zepto.

I've heard of the ransomware viruses but not had any experience of them. 

So, basically what happened was someone had their email account hacked and the baddies used this hacked account to send out this zepto virus to all the contacts. Usually you'd spot it, but they had even lo...

I've always get swamped with email. My idea is, or was, that if an email came in with something to do, like information about someones accounts, or a bill to pay, I'd leave it in the inbox to remind me to do it. A bit like a "to do" list. 


I want a Zero Inbox. Nothing there. When I think of it, I hear a little 'ding' and some sparkly music like you'd get...

Good day to you. We're busy considering the implications and impacts of auto enrollment. I recently attended a conference all about it and the speaker stated "the cost of doing business in the UK just went up". 


I thought this was a little OTT. But the more we look into it, the more I am tending to agree with him. 


It's the compliance costs which wi...

On a recent visit to London, I was stirred by the wonderful architecture and the grandeur of the historical buildings in Westminster. I was amazed to learn that the Houses of Parliament or more aptly named the Palace of Westminster contain 1000 rooms linked by two miles of corridors. There is a post office, a police station, a hairdressing salon, a trave...
