ANNOUNCEMENTS:

We are looking for someone qualified to help with accounts, part time, familiar with Sage.

Anyone out there who got the COBET NON free cassette item with one of the Quarterlies, please get in touch. Thanks

EU customers, we are working on solving the delay and tax the EU now imposes on UK imports. We have a slightly complicated way, for anyone keen enough (email us), and we hope a simple way early next year.
