UK Budget 2017: Tax and economic updates

We are delighted to invite you to join us for our annual Tax & Economic Update events, in Birmingham, Milton Keynes and the East Midlands. With the advent of the tax year end on 5th April, Philip Hammond’s first budget on 8 March will seek to address the governments’ objective to balance economic growth and manage the impact of recent global events.

Rest assured there will be continued focus on tax avoidance and improper tax planning. The question is how creative could the Chancellor be in simplifying tax to help the government achieve its vision of a UK which is 'open for business'.

At this annual update we will look at the current tax and economic landscape in more detail – a significant amount has happened in the last year - and explain how they may affect you along with potential opportunities for efficient planning.

Our Speakers

Dr John Glen, Senior Lecturer in Economics at Cranfield University 
John will discuss the current state of play with the economy and the implications of the budget and Brexit plans for business confidence and investment plans, both locally and more widely.

Lindsay Pentelow, Tax Partner, Milton Keynes
Eric Williams, Tax Partner Birmingham
Pujah Joshi, Senior Tax Manager and Gareth Jones, VAT Manager, East Midlands 
We will focus on recent tax changes and current opportunities for acceptable efficient tax planning in the growing anti-avoidance environment.
