We Are Running for Charity – Please Support Us!


If you know us here at SRK Accounting, you’ll know that the majority of us aren’t exactly the embodiment of health. However, that is about to change as the entire SRK Accounting Team will be running 13.1 miles in the Milton Keynes Winter Half Marathon on the 10th of December on behalf of Railway Children.

Railway Children is a charity that helps protect lost and vulnerable children from exploitation and abuse. It is estimated that 112,000 children arrive on platforms at 35 stations in India every year. These children are highly vulnerable and an easy target for abusers. Railway Children prevent this horrific outcome by reaching them first. We want to support their tremendous work because like Railway Children, we believe in a world where no child ever has to live on the streets. Please join us in helping to raise £5000 to make this vision a reality!

Pension Auto Enrolment

You may or may not know that pension auto enrolment is compulsory for all companies with employees on the payroll. Please find your staging date by clicking here.


If you do not employ anyone and maybe are the sole director on the payroll, you must inform the pensions regulator that you do not meet the criteria for auto enrolment. Please follow the link by clicking here.


If you are registered for a PAYE scheme, you should have been sent a letter from the pensions regulator informing you of the auto enrolment process.


If you do need to enroll but have no idea where to start, please contact us and we can help!


Self Assessment Nudge

For you directors out there, the personal tax return deadline is looming. We only have until the 31st January 2018 to file and submit your tax return to declare all income received between the 6th April 2016 and 5th April 2017.


Emails have been sent out to all directors containing all the information we require if you would like SRK to complete your return. If you have not submitted the online form or have not received the email, please contact your associate as soon as possible.
