Newsletter 21 – Winter 2016

Newsletter 21 – Winter 2016 Issued: 16 December 2016   We’ve great pleasure in publishing the Winter 2016 issue of our newsletter which we hope will help keep you up to date with financially-related matters. Read Newsletter 21 here.   It’s been a momentous year with, seemingly, never a dull moment. But turmoil and excitement can lead to nervousness in the commercial world – if ever there was a moment to ‘keep calm and carry on’, perhaps now is the time. ‘Retirement’ is a hot topic and never seems far from the headlines. Auto enrolment has been an apparent success and, as it rolls into its fifth year, can boast an impressive result: it’s pushed an additional 6.5 million people into saving into some form of pension scheme. But, with an aging population and greater life expectancy, it’s not just the Government that should be ‘thinking pension’ – all of […]

Read the Spring 2017 newsletter here.   There’s certainly a lot happening in the economy at the moment. Budget 2017 was met with a chorus of disapproval over the hike in National Insurance contributions for the self-employed; ‘Mrs M’ should get approval to trigger Article 50 within the next few days and the end of the current tax year is just round the corner. Interesting times, but uncertain ones too. What lies ahead? Are the markets settling? Can we expect stability? Who knows, but if we learnt anything last year it was, probably, to be wary of poll predictions and economic experts! With the end of the tax year only a few weeks away […]

Read the Summer 2017 newsletter here.   We announced the publication of the Spring 2017 issue of our newsletter with the following statement: “There’s certainly a lot happening in the economy at the moment … Interesting times, but uncertain ones too. What lies ahead? Are the markets settling? Can we expect stability?” Who could have foreseen the drama that was about to unfold! A sudden general election which, far from bringing the increased stability we all craved did quite the opposite – the electorate reacting to a series of largely self-inflicted political ‘events’ with various levels of displeasure by ploughing up the political landscape. There were no […]
