Tax submission for business owner

This would  be the 1st time that I submit my tax return as a business owner. The date line is on 30 June. 

I have been organizing the bills, banking documents and other accounts  related documents a week ago in order for me to update them into the accounting system.  I am using the UBS accounting  system at home which is similar to the system  I am using in my employer's office, so I am quite familiar  with it and that's  make  it a lot easier for me.

I have one more week to finalise my business  account and do the submission online for the Assessment Year 2012.  Previous years, I only have to report my income as an employee which is very much straight forward.

My shop assistant

Before I started my business,  I never took note of people talking about how frustrating it is to employ a reliable shop assistant.
After operating a shop for exactly 5 months as of today,  I have started to realise employing a good employee is not as easy as I first thought. 
We have to ask my staff to leave because she has becoming dishonest and taking advantage of our kindness.  She has been coming late to work and taking leaves with only giving me one hour notice with all sort of reasons she can think of.  We have given her warnings repeatedly for such a behaviour.

We have to finally laid her off on last Saturday when she turned in to work 3 hours late. 

Without an assistant,  we have to temporary closed our shop while looking for a new one, luckily not for long. Thank God that we managed to get a replacement after spreading words around.  Hopefully the new shop assistant will be better than the previous one.  She will be commencing her duties tomorrow.   I am relieve at the same time worry whether she can handle the job alone as she is very young and inexperienced.   I am unable to be in my shop because I am still under employment with a boss.   Just hope that I can becoming my own boss very soon on a full time basis.
Here are very cute singlet and pants set selling at my shopping for 2 to 7 years old.

Online food ordering and home delivery service

After a long and tiring day at work, we are basically out of idea of what to serve for dinner each day.  I can only come out with only 1 -2 simple dishes in less than half and hour.  My kids have started to complain about the similar food that I serve them each time.  My cooking is always prepared in the shortest time possible just to fill up our hungry stomach and allow time for me to do the cleaning up after meals, and thereafter do the laundry, check on my girls homework and other house chaos within 2-3 hours time before rushing my girls to bed.  

I told my friend that she is lucky to have her dinner readily served by their parents or house helper, and have time to put up their legs to enjoy a good series of drama after dinner.  

Eating out could be an alternative but it is costly to dine out nowadays not to mention the queue.  I am very much prefer to enjoy a nice dinner at home.  

Recently I came across a brilliant website which offer online food delivery service to homes, Foodpanda, orders can be made online or by phone for food to be delivered in and around Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Penang and many more areas.  I am very disappointed that their services have not extended to Kota Kinabalu.  We would definitely be their regular customers if their delivery service is available here.

After further check on their website here you could find more than 300 restaurants offering international cuisines, besides our local Malaysian food.  All can be conveniently ordered through online and delivered to your home or office.  This kind of food delivery service will help to cease the burden of working class mum a great deal.
