It was my worst tax season in terms of stress level. No, won’t do this again. No way. Why you may ask.
We had completed a fair amount of work pre January. Of the tax returns left a large percentage of these were okay. We were left with two clients, both of them had a high tax liability. One of them (new client) proved to be such a nightmare. Fees and stress level with this client do not tie up. A real PITA client. There is no way I am keeping him.
In addition to tax returns there was also unexpected work that came up. This ranged from Accountant’s Certificate to how do I do this on Xero. Further, there were more than normal unexpected events in my personal life. 2 bicycle punctures did not help.
I am totally exhausted now. I asked my staff to leave early so I can get some time on my own in the office. I am taking a long weekend off. Well I will try. I do not think I will be able to work even if I tried. My brain is saying no so far. Even if I come to the office, I will be dealing with personal stuff and only urgent client emails. My staff are not in the office till Tuesday.
