Legal eagle so that they

Legal eagle so that they can care for your child in the event of the death of all people previously holding parental responsibility – or in the case of the person who has died having a residence order (custody). Advertorial Dealing with nappies and night feeds is hard enough, but what about the legal aspects of having a baby, writes Emma Baillie Returning to work Nothing is probably further from your mind, but for many of us the time to return to work eventually arrives. Generally you are entitled to return to the same job on the same pay. Your holidays have built up whilst you have been on leave and can be added to the period of maternity leave or taken at another time. Many returning mums want to work flexible hours. There is no entitlement to flexible working, but employees who have been in post for at least 26 weeks (including maternity leave) have the right to request it. Having a child is one of the biggest events of your life. While you're pregnant there is no shortage of people telling you how your soon-to-arrive bundle of joy will change your life – but what about the legal stuff? Here are some tips on what you need to do once the baby comes. Register the birth This has to be done within 42 days of the birth. If you’re unmarried make sure both parents register the birth. An unmarried father (or other second parent) does not automatically have “parental responsibility” – which is the right to be consulted about important decisions on the child, such as schooling, religion, 36 LOVEEAST etc, unless they are named on the birth certificate. Providing the parents are still together this will not usually present a practical problem, but this does also cover the right to give consent, perhaps for medical treatment, and in an emergency that could be really important if Dad is the one on the scene. Make a will This is an opportunity to provide financially and practically for your child. Financially, you are likely to want any assets (including perhaps a life insurance payout) to be held on trust for when your child is an adult. Practically, you will need to appoint a guardian. This will give parental responsibility to another adult Emma Baillie Emma Baillie is a solicitor and head of family finance at TV Edwards.

Money matters with ​many different​​types of people and business sectors. It basically helps keep you in the loop and informed of what’s new ​and ​what’s trending, both at home and abroad. Facebook U​sing ​Facebook gives us the freedom to express​​ourselves without space limitations​,​so it’s ideal for uploading pictures, videos and sharing content.​​ We have been recommended through Facebook​, and this has led to more clients coming on​​ board –​a​great result. The power of social media cannot be underestimated, says Alan Patient W​hether you’re a start-up or an established business, learning to use social media effectively will bring great rewards. I’m sure there are many thousands of East London businesses already using Twitter, LinkedIn, etc, to great effect. But if you’re not one of those people, you may find our experience helpful. ​Two years ago​we took ​our​first steps into the ​world of social media. Along​with ​our ​shiny new website​, we have seen great​ benefi​ts​​from ​using ​LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.​​So how does ​it work for us and what have we gained? LinkedIn As ​Chartered ​Accountant​s​ ​we​ really enjoy LinkedIn​. It’​s mainly set-up for ​p​rofessional​s to use as a networking tool,​but it’s ​also useful for giving out advice and gathering​​information on certain topics such as tax and VAT. Some of the team: Chris James, Svitlana Matviychuk and Alan Patient (right) We have gained many clients and business connections​as a result of using it regularly by posting advice, and commenting on posts written by other businesses and individuals​. Twitter We have found Twitter helps us communicate ​with ​and follow ​ people ​on all level​s. We connect ​Social media has played an important part in the growth of our practice. I would highly recommend that you use it regularly but make sure that your posts are meaningful to the sort of people you want to attract. Use it as a tool to give advice, join in discussions and generally build up relationships with existing and potential clients. If you want to talk in more detail about this, or any other accountancy matter, please do get in touch. Our first consultation is free (as is our tea and cake).
