Diabetes UK Cymru is looking for people from across Wales to take on the swimming challenge of the year, Swim22, between 22 February and 22 May. Swim22 participants will cover an incredible 22 miles – the equivalent of crossing the English Channel. People taking on the challenge can swim in their local pool alone or, better still, with family, friends or colleagues. The distance can even be split between a team to make it easier for everyone. Joseph Cuff , Fundraising Manager at Diabetes UK Cymru, said: “Swimming is a fantastic way to stay fi t and healthy and have fun, so why not set yourself a challenge? Whether you’re an absolute beginner or a seasoned swimmer, our team will be on hand to off er swimming tips and fundraising advice.” “When diabetes is not well managed it can lead to serious complications including heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and amputations. Every length you complete and every pound you raise will bring us closer to our vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm. So sign up and make a splash!” To register, visit There is no registration fee and no minimum sponsorship.

Make a New Year resolution to tick off your tax return

Local small businesses are being urged not to miss the 31st January deadline to complete their online tax returns, or they could face hefty fi nes. Russell Charles who owns TaxAssist Accountants in Cardiff said: “January can be one of the busiest periods for businesses, particularly in the leisure and retail industries, so we’re urging local employers not to get distracted and miss the 31st January deadline for fi ling their online tax returns. “Some 840,000 UK businesses

missed the

deadline on 31st January last year, netting HMRC £84 million in fi nes. Even if they were only one day late fi ling their tax return online and even if they did not owe any tax, an immediate £100 penalty applied. “The Government has said it plans to change to a driving licence-style points system for late fi ling of tax returns, but currently, in addition to the immediate fi ne, the fi gure will spiral, depending on how late the payment is, and could reach as much as £1,600. “There are enough calls on local business owners’

hard-earned cash, without facing

penalties for missed tax return deadlines. We’re urging them to make one of their New Year’s resolutions to tick off their tax return and avoid hefty fi nes.” TaxAssist Accountants Cardiff is a local business, operating across Cardiff , providing tax and accountancy advice and services purely to small businesses.
