Only 8% of people can work it out…

Friday, October 19th, 2012

It’s unbelievable… but a recent study of UK adults, who were given various options, using 2100 units… only 8% could calculate the cheapest deal !!!

I’m not sure if this was supposed to be ‘basic’ maths, or ‘higher level’ maths… but it is rather shocking that generally, most people, can’t manage it.

We recognised that this starts from a young age, and so made a maths game which si free to play on facebook, so that you can practice maths: http://apps.facebook.com/booglesmathsgame/

See the article Only 8% can work out a saving.

And for everyone else… if you want a FREE COST SAVINGS REVIEW … we will work out what you pay now, and what you could pay if you switched… just contact us here – it can be done by phone, by emai, by fax. Only takes about 10 minutes when you have the right information to hand. Your usage.

Payroll Costs on the Rise

Monday, October 1st, 2012

Be aware that Minimum Wage Regulations have increased in the UK. See here for the new levels. https://www.gov.uk/national-minimum-wage-rates

Also, make sure you brace yourself, for the Pensions changes set to come into affect – big firms first, and then the medium, and then the small… employers are going to have to start paying into the pension fund for staff. Its starts in 2012 and carries on into 2016 by which point everyone will be effected. See: http://www.thepensionsregulator.gov.uk/docs/intro-to-work-based-pension-changes-2011.pdf

Lots of SMEs owner-managers  are grumbling about not even having a pension themselves… let alone having to find money to pay into someone elses !! Tough! …. the country is broke, and the government are putting the onus back onto the people to save for their own retirement. If you are working full time, flat out and still don’t have enough money to set aside for your future pension… by the time you retire, do you honestly think your situation will have got any better? Or will you still be scrimping along?

A lot of people are just going to wind up and close their doors at this rate because these expenses seem to be on the rise…

But you can’t complain… we’ve been given ample warning… get your financial house in order right now. If you need help – contact us, and we can help you with your financial planning: admin@boogleslt.com
