According to the ICAEW businesses may need to take a greater ‘leap of faith’ and invest for the future despite the current uncertainty. In its latest Economic Forecast, it predicts GDP growth of 1.6% in both 2017 and 2018, 0.8% slower than the average for the past three years. Despite the lack of certainty on Brexit, the economic conditions for capital investment remain positive and would help drive growth. We are here to help you with advice on how to drive the growth in your business. Please contact us for more information.
There is currently a consultation process underway into the HMRC proposal to move the self-assessment system into the digital age. We will be providing our opinion and experiences to the Government as part of this process and will of course keep our clients informed of any changes and the effect this will have on them in due course.
Following the UK’s decision to leave the EU, it is possible that this could affect many areas of tax including income and corporate taxes, business reliefs and VAT. The first indication of the impact of this decision on taxation will come as part of the Autumn Statement later this year and further changes may arise as the exit negotiations unfold. We will continue to monitor this and will inform our clients should any changes which may affect them arise.
