We also got trademark November 14th 2017 and we got publish on 1st December 2017 in the trademark journal under our brand name Girlfriday, Girlfridayz this a major milestone for us as he took us ten years to achieve this goals.
As people maybe slightly confuse but our brand name always been Girlfriday, Girlfridayz but when we registered at the HMRC in 2007 they did not take into account our full brand name but just asked us to choose and we decided to use the last part of our brand name Girlfridayz.
However when we got limited on the 2nd September 2016 we had the same issue with the Company House they've refuse to take our full brand name Girlfriday, Girlfridayz once again we got to decide which part to use and we used Girlfridayz limited.
We are pleased that the IPO accept our trademark as one mark and trademark our brand name in full Girlfriday, Girlfridayz™ we now fully registered including our services.
We developed 4 calculators Mark is an element add-on calculator and Phobee is an extra pages selectors both are on our website pages and are there to make easier the ordering of add-on for our website packages once you chooses an add-on it will tell you how much to pay and an email will be send to us with confirmation of your add-on order.
As well as the latter we developed Lucky A wages calculator and Lucy a Yearly Tax calculator they are both useful for small business and self-employed individual or for a new employer who wish to calculate weekly wages to an employee or an employee who want to found out if they get paid the right amount and the right deduction of taxes.
Lucky our weekly wage calculator is located on our start-up business page and to use it you just need to put your number of hours, your rate of pay, expenses for that week and number of days work. It will calculate your weekly pay any deductible taxes such as NI and Income tax and give your net amount.
Lucy our Yearly Calculator is easy to use and handy for tax return purpose, as you enter your yearly income and expenses and it will calculate your profits or loss. If it a profit and your amount of income is over £11500 personal allowance it will calculate taxes due that include NI and income tax due for the year if any and give your remaining profit after deducting taxes and it's located in our grow your business page.
If you did not go over your personal allowance it will give your profit made for the years which will automatically be a number under £11500 or £11500 as the government will tax you on £11501 up to £45 000 20% and £45 001 to £150 000 40% but at £123 000 you losing your personal allowance and tax at 40% until you reach £150 000 if you are 150 001 you pay taxes at 45%.

Our calculator Lucy is also good for calculating your yearly profit and loss account in your business plan and with the data gathered you can do a neat summary on your finances for years 2017 bear in mind you cannot enter monthly amount the data will not be correct we maybe developing a monthly one.
On the other hand Lucky can also helps you do your profit maximiser and helps calculate weekly sales of an item or a service the weekly data you get you record it you add it up for monthly amount of sales for that items. It will also deduct your weekly expenses so you get your true profit on that sale after expenses are taken out.
We purchased Girlfriday.info domain for three year which is redirected to our domain Girlfridayz.com we did that due to customers mistake not putting the “Z” at end of Girlfridayz.com so if they innocently forgot they can use Girlfriday.info we are in talk to get Girlfriday.com which will be perfect for us.
We have achieved our goals for last years and set new one for this years, we achieved a major milestone for us our trademarking of our brand name which took 10 years to achieves including our services.
A business take time to nature and grow steadily at a small pace, only a few businesses experienced an exponential growth such Facebook, Twitter and Netflix but most businesses even the large one such as Amazon the mighty giant now took a certain number of year to achieves this huge notoriety and the same applied for Virgin brand and other big major brand outhere
Hence running a business take patience, determination, persistence, consistency, passion and positiveness also a good attitude as when the fund are low and debt are high one still have to smile and try harder to flip the situation around.
A business needs lots of customers to survive including funding and good marketing we at girlfridayz supports you with the start-up and growth of your business plus your marketing as well as traditional marketing and digital marketing too notwithstanding your online presence which is vital these days so we design your website and optimise your social media too.
