As the Budget looms there is speculation about tax rises in the press at the moment, as the government attempts to find ways to fill the gap made by extra borrowing due to Coronavirus. There is talk about introducing new taxes, such as a wealth tax, or perhaps raising existing taxes such as capital gains tax and corporation tax. Will any such changes apply immediately or later when we are out of the current restrictions? Whatever changes are announced, they are sure to be relevant to all UK businesses and their owners. Join our webinar to get an easy-to-digest summary to get a clearer understanding on how these tax changes might affect your business.
Mike Hayes, Tax Partner, will present and explain the main points addressed in the Chancellor’s 2021 budget and what these mean to you.

But his special emphasis is on property and media and marketing services.
Much of Mike’s time is spent advising UK and US businesses on setting up in the ‘other’ country. Mike presents in the US on ‘Doing business in the UK’ and works closely with associated firms in major US cities.
