Re: Gails to SW12

Gail's is vastly overrated and very expensive for the service... And now I see how much they pay their staff, I found that shocking.

Re: wimbledon Centre Court School violence

Presumably the parents are at work, for most if them at least. I think schools have to be involved as they are wearing their uniforms. No solutions will be found if it is not joint effort between schools, parents and council. The article says exactly that. The problem is if the child is not involved...

Re: If your were on Wandsworth common yesterday and left your litter there, your a disgrace

I once asked a man in his 50s i think to pick up a blue plastic he had just thrown on the ground 1m away from a public bin to be told “no i pay my taxes do it if it snnoys you so much”.

Re: Honeywell School or local private prep?

What you end up paying at a private school are never the fees advertised it is always at least 10% more per child: fees, uniforms, school trips and extra curricular activities to name but a few.

Re: Paying for childcare cash in hand - what's the view?

“And I'd love to know from AbbevilleMummy why on earth she thinks I as a taxpayer should contribute to the cost of her nanny by making it tax deductible.” It is a very simplistic way to look at it. Another approach is to think that if employing someone in your house can be deductible then less peopl...

Re: Au pair’s food costs

I completely agree with Abbeville Mummy - very sensible approach. Alternatively, calculate your weekly food budget for your family, calculate the amount per adults and kids snd give her the same amount as what you spend on an adult. In my eyes 25/30 pounds seem very low to my but thats because the f...

Seed Salon - St John Hill

Anyone been there? “Children” are banned from getting a haircut from Thursday to Sunday inclusive and I am shocked. Charging £15+ isnot enough togeant them a chair in their fancy salon at the week end. I m not talking about preschoolers by the way, but about children who are at school while we are a...

Tax advisor recommendation

Hello

Could you please recommend a tax advisor who will also be able to advise in tax due abroad ie. euro zone?

It doesn't have to be locally as long as the tax advisor is based in London.

Many thanks.
