  1. I don’t have enough time to source my own stock let alone run around for other people.
  2. I think it’s just a game of numbers didn’t buy a single thing today, Myself however tomorrow is a different day thank god for on line bidding. yes you end up with the odd lemon but factor in all the time you save it’s still well worth it, driving around the country for me is just no longer viable.
  3. I am still here.....holly crap how sad does that sound, not a lot changed still a daily struggle to source stock to source decent customers. One thing that has changed i think is the advertising landscape, what ever your old flavour i can bet you a cup of hot chocolate it would have changed and not for the better.
  4. I dont see that being the crux of the issue, for me the issue is dealer auction will allow almost anyone sign up with homemade vat number and purchase cars, there is no way on this earth i could compete with the guy who doesnt declare a single thing offers no services other than a burner phone and a picture of his backside heading off into the sunset with the customers money never to be seen again, they know it we know it everyone knows it but it gets them sales and keep the dealers listing cars with them so it will never change.
  5. A lot of dealers have no idea what info there sending off to the vat office with there mtd return, the revenue's ability to be able to drill down into any entry now is as clear as glass, going to be a lot of surcharges issued this year thats for sure.
  6. Depends on your level of input required most accountants will offer an entry system and charge a nominal fee just picture snap the invoices wing them over and they do all the entry work, you may be surprised with the cost v work required. Back in our car audio days we had close onto 30 staff and the accountant used to charge £50 a month to do payroll wasnt worth our effort or headache just emailed him hours last day of the month and payslips turned up within an hour job done.
  7. If only that was true I see it as the decent buyers leave the pond life that shouldn’t be in there in the first place will remain and continue to feed the main dealers goal to offload crap at any price.
  8. I am part of that gang as well its a mini adventure the add says there not far bloody wrong, PS as a keen rugby fan i have to ask, your not related to Lee Halfpenny by any chance, true welsh rugby legend.
  9. I am convinced I am going to get some nasty disease at some point due to dust that stuff and mdf used to make, H&S I used to think that was some fancy clothes shop up London way.
  10. I agree, that would be classed as a major win in my book. and certainly not worth the hours on the phone following a claim.
  11. I think your barking up the wrong tree here most will happen is some measly fine from the dvla which no doubt will be put in some dormant company name and never paid, back to the drawing board.
  12. shall we all hire a mini bus and come around sort him out for you....or you could grow a pair and go have a chat with the guy.
  13. Sounds like you have a plan, I Suggest you have a look at how the second hand car margin scheme works and what your entitled to claim and what your not and go from there.
  14. Totally agree one of those rare occasions where the old website was ten times better with what they replaced it with.
  15. I will answer you vat question the rest I cringed as I don’t BMW’s or the customers they bring, anyway there is no real way of reducing your vat if one business claims it the other company incurs it if you own both businesses it’s six of one and half a dozen of another. finally what starts of as a passion for most of us very quickly turns into ground hog day, I know prefer to walk as much as I can as I am fed up with cars.
