Happy New Year and welcome to the latest edition of our quarterly newsletter.
2019 is going to be quite a year for UK businesses. Brexit has caused much uncertainty. Before Christmas, from speaking to our clients, it did appear that some SMEs were holding off investing until the impact of Brexit was clear. Whether this continues into the first quarter of the year, we will have to wait and see.
We also have Making Tax Digital less than three months away, affecting VAT registered businesses with a turnover above £85,000. Both of these changes, amongst others, are discussed in this quarter’s Special Feature on page 4.
This quarter we are also pleased to bring you the first in our Business Insights series, where we catch up with our clients to reveal the secret behind their success and advice they would offer to other businesses. This quarter we catch up with Coleman Douglas Pearls – see page 6.
We also bring you the latest news and advice to ensure you get the most out of your personal finances (page 8) and business (page 12) this year.
We are always looking at ways to improve our newsletters and increase the advice we deliver to you. If you do have any specific questions that need answered or advice you would like to see, please get in touch with us.
