Business News – Spring 2018

Martin Jones, February 18th, 2018 Martin Jones

Our latest newsletter is now available and we hope that you will find our Spring 2018 Business News an informative and useful read.  Our lead article is of particular relevance to corporate clients and covers the correct procedure to be followed when making dividend payments. Highlighting some common errors, the article offers guidance on best practice, and how best to avoid challenge from HMRC. Other items include the latest on the timetable for the abolition of Class 2 National Insurance, forthcoming income tax rates and bonds, the latest rates for the National Minimum Wage and an update on Inheritance Tax. We also look at news outside the world of work and business and if you are involved with an amateur sports club you may be interested in the article on Community Amateur Sports Club status. This is a scheme which can allow local clubs to access a variety of tax advantages. Finally, our Essential Employer Update examines the latest developments and new rules that affect all companies and businesses.

Please do get in contact with us at any time if you wish to discuss any of the features in the Newsletter or any other business matter.
