News: On The Spot – The Autumn Statement

Posted on 23rd November 2016

Today’s statement has set the tone for this post-Brexit cash strapped government clamping down on tax leakages too large to ignore.

We noticed the usual claims of simplicity whilst at the same time introducing further complications in other areas.

For example, if you’re on the VAT Flat Rate Scheme I’ll be contacting you about new changes effective from this April 2017. The changes will mainly affect consultants.

The perceived abuse has encouraged the Government to introduce further complications to a scheme which started life making VAT simpler for the smallest businesses.

"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."

Nick Broom, Managing Director

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
