So you think petrol is expensive! The average cost of printer ink per gallon is £3,500!

Some simple things can help ensure that you are not spending more then you need to:

  • it's important that printer ink and toner isn't wasted so make sure that the cartridge is completely empty before you replace it - take it out and give it a shake!  Don't just automatically replace it because the printer says so!
  • set printing preferences to print in black rather than in colour
  • always run a spelling and grammar check to correct any mistakes you might have made.…

What is the simplest, least disruptive and most cost effective measure you can take to reduce your energy bills?


The quality and performance of LED replacement lamps has come a long way in the last few years. Their hugely improved light quality and low energy consumption means that businesses can save up to 80% on their energy bills by installing LED lamps in place of their existing halogen or incandescent bulbs.

ENERGY SAVING - In the face of ever-increasing energy costs, organisations are searching for ways to save energy. Increasing insulation, upgrading boilers and…

Tax Refund For Smartphones. Act now

For Info:

HMRC recently revised their definition of mobile phones. Previously classed as a benefit in kind (since 2007), the change means that employees and employers may be entitled to refunds of tax or NIC for smartphones.

The changes are limited to smartphones and do not apply to devices such as iPads, tablets or PCs.

Although strict conditions must be met, I would urge anyone – individuals or companies – who has a 'smartphone' to act now.  Contact your employer, tax…

Getting a Bespoke Sign For Your Business

Your sign says a lot more about your business than most people think. Not only does it help the customer locate your building, but it should also create a credible brand image. A good sign should be eye-catching, but not too busy. Too much text, or using lettering that is too small, makes a sign hard to read and ineffective. A sign should be bold and stand out enough…
