Now is the time to get your finances in order, recommends MHA Carpenter Box
Between the start of a new year and before the end of the financial year is a great time to review business and personal finances and to make plans for the year ahead. To help you along the way, MHA Carpenter Box is holding a Tax & Investment Seminar which will cover some recent changes that might affect the decisions you make. The aim is to give you some pointers whether you’re thinking about your business or your own finances.
The seminar will be held at the South Lodge Hotel near Horsham, where Stuart Noakes, Partner and Head of the Tax Services Group at MHA Carpenter Box, will give some useful tips on planning for the end of the tax year. These will include a basic tax checklist, tax relief through investment schemes such as the Enterprise Investment Scheme and thinking about Inheritance Tax planning, to minimise liability when the final curtain falls.
Roy Thompson, Departmental Director at Carpenter Box Wealth Management, will discuss wealth management strategies for you and your family, outlining the different types of opportunities available and how to make the most of pension and ISA investments.
The Sussex-based chartered accountants and chartered tax advisers are looking forward to 2018 after an exceptional year in 2017, which saw the headcount at the firm rise to almost 160.
Chris Coopey, Partner and Practice Director at the firm, commented: “We are really looking forward to this first event of the year, which has already attracted a great deal of interest from both business and personal clients. There will be something for everyone and guests will have the opportunity to raise any issues directly with the presenters and to network with other like-minded individuals in the beautiful setting of the South Lodge Hotel.”
The seminar will be held between 8am and 10am on Thursday 8th February and all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the firm’s Year End Tax Planning Guide. For more information and to register for the event, please visit http://www.carpenterbox.com/investment-tax-seminar/
"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."
"“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”"
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
