Welcome to Jemma Jones, Accountant
Jemma has joined us in October 2016 following a move to Yorkshire, and is studying towards her ACCA qualification.
Prior to joining the team Jemma has over 5 years of accounting experience supporting a range of businesses on areas including VAT, payroll, book keeping, taxation and year end accounts.
We are so pleased with the updated and refreshed newsletter for the Clifton Moor Business Association (CMBA), that we thought we’d share with you the great good news stories from businesses in YO30. There is also an article featuring Martin who is part of the CMBA board, and some interesting facts about him which you may not know! Click here to view
The winner of the draw was James Wellock (pictured) of Your Creative Sauce, who are “a single sauce for all creative, print & digital brand solutions”. Congratulations to James and thank you to everyone else who visited our stand and took part.
This year has seen Tom (Craddock) complete his Association of Accounting Technician (AAT) exams, which he has been working towards for 3 years since joining our team in 2012. This gives Tom a recognised and respected qualification to back up his practical experience. In 2016 he will be starting work towards his Association of Chartered Certified Accountants exams.
Xero Silver Partner accreditation
During 2015 we have been awarded Silver Partner status with online accounting software provider Xero. As part of this 5 members of our team (Steve, Martin, Chris, Nicci & Tom) have studied for and been awarded Xero Certified Advisor status. We already have over 20 businesses using Xero.
Alongside our increased online work through Xero, we have invested in improved internet connectivity and are now “Superfast”, to ensure that we can upload and download information effectively and efficiently.
This year has seen us recruit 2 apprentices as part of our development as a business. In September we welcomed Beth (Parkin) and in November we were joined by Joe (Sykes). – Both are studying towards their AAT exams on day release at York College, alongside working in our office 4 days a week.
We have been joined by Ilianna on reception during 2015.
We have been sad to wave farewell this year to:
– Beena who has decided not to return following the birth of her second child
– Sarah who was providing maternity cover for Beena who decided to move to Lancashire to be with her boyfriend
Happy new year from all the team at Morrell Middleton and we look forward to working with you in 2016.
Happy Christmas Everyone!
All of us at Morrell Middleton, Brodericks and YorSolution want to say a big thank you for the year and wish you a great festive season!
That is unless you haven’t got your books and tax return in to us . . . . . then you may be working like this poor chap!

Morrell Middleton have teamed up with Ardent Financial advisers to discuss the in’s and out’s of implementing the Governments solution to the pensions crisis – Auto Enrolment.
The rules will apply even to individuals who employ just one person, such as a nanny or gardener. Employers will have to enrol workers who are classified into 3 areas, Entitled Worker, Non-Eligible Jobholder and a Jobholder. Who is which and what you have to do for them is all in our notes!
We are delighted to announce that Martin Poole from our team has been appointed to the board of directors of the Clifton Moor Business Association, of which Morrell Middleton are long standing members.
Clifton Moor Business Association has been established over 15 years with the vision of creating a forum where the views of businesses on Clifton Moor could be represented and to encourage mutual business between companies based on the estate.
We are delighted to be associated with the Langer hole, the 17th at Fulford Golf Club. Earlier this year we sponsored the whole in conjunction with The Wholein1golf Flyover app featuring Fulford Golf Club.
Being an amateur golfer myself I would invite you to mail me if you would like to join us for a round at some point in the near future. We have limited tickets so this may end up being a draw situation if I get a rush of requests – or we may try and get more.
Xero is the UK’s best Online accounting solution so for those people who operate on the move, have different locations for staff or just want less hassle in their book keeping lives then this may be a solution for you.
Many businesses like to be able to work with staff in many different places and the goal of seeking an online accounting package that was reliable and sophisticated enough to be more than a mere cash book has proven difficult for existing accounting software providers to deliver. Just look at Sage One and Quick book online. Not a patch on their desk top products.
– the amount of finance needed?
– where funding could come from?
– where do I start?
If the answer to any or all of these questions is “yes”, we are pleased to announce that our team at Morrell Middleton are able to work with you, with our costs subsidised by up to as much as 60% to answer these questions. You need to act quickly though, as some funding ends 31 March 2015
Now the dust has settled we have produced a 4 page guide to the relatively quiet 2014 Chancellors Autumn Statement for you to download here!
From the 31 January 2015 our old FREEPOST address will not work as the Royal Mail have upgraded and improved (?) our service. We will be sending you fresh supplies of envelopes over Christmas so please destroy your old ones showing the address of FREEPOST YO 186 as we are not sure what happens to them after the 1 February 2015 if used!
