  • BCC Quarterly Economic Survey: UK economic growth softened further in Q1 2016
    from a percentage balance of 20 and 17 respectively In the services sector the percentage of companies who are struggling to recruit has risen to 68 the highest level for 18 years however more firms expect to increase their workforce in the next three months 27 up from 21 Confidence in turnover and profitability for both services and manufacturing remains low by historical standards Domestic indicators largely fell although they remain stronger than export indicators The balance of manufacturers reporting improved domestic sales balance fell two points to 11 although the balance of firms reporting improved orders was up slightly to 13 from 10 In services the balance of firms reporting improved domestic sales fell a further six points to 26 while orders fell two points to 21 For both sectors these are the lowest levels in nearly three years The balance of manufacturers intending to increase prices fell sharply from 19 to 8 reversing the rise of the previous quarter but rose in services from 21 to 27 The balance of firms intending to invest in plant and machinery and training fell in the services sector Fewer companies reported increased pressures for higher pay settlements 33 in manufacturing 27 in services In manufacturing the level is still higher than before the financial crisis Dr Adam Marshall Acting Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce said Our latest survey results suggest that the UK economy is in a holding pattern While the picture is static overall there are clear indications that economic growth is continuing to soften From sales and orders to confidence and investment intentions many of the business indicators we track are at a low ebb The softening environment should be a wake up call for Westminster Further action is likely to be needed to support business confidence encourage trade and underpin investment in the months ahead David Kern BCC Chief Economist added These results are disappointing but not surprising Although GDP growth for the previous quarter was upgraded slightly our survey points to a slowdown in Q1 2016 This is the inevitable consequence of mounting global and domestic uncertainties but it is nevertheless concerning that the vibrant and dominant services sector is likely to face mounting challenges in the next few years The mediocre employment balances are a warning that we cannot afford to be complacent about the continued dynamism of our labour market The improvement in the manufacturing export balances probably helped by sharp falls in sterling is welcome But exports are still weak by historical standards Our current account deficit has escalated to a record high in 2015 and is likely to remain unacceptably large in the next few years Britain s credit rating will be at risk unless we make improving our trade balance and boosting our exports national priorities In spite of the headwinds facing our economy Britain has major areas of strength that can make a sustainable recovery possible if correct policies are adopted In this survey we report a few

  • BCC: Rise in inflation does not change outlook for interest rates
    inflation now approaching 3 and in view of the sharp fall in sterling in recent months it will be understandable if the MPC becomes more cautious and its job may become more complicated if the upward pressures on prices continue Despite this with the 2 inflation target not likely to be met until the end of 2017 and given the underlying problems facing the global and UK economy the current inflationary pressures still do not justify any change in the MPC s policy stance on interest rates Post navigation Previous Post BCC Consumer led growth demonstrates unbalanced nature of our economic recovery Next Post 200 million fund to support Devon Cornwall Somerset SMEs launched recently Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Search for Recent Posts BCC Welcome deficit reduction in March but huge task still lies ahead A financial controller from a Truro based organisation has gained chartered status after completing three years of studying BCC Disappointing retail sales reinforce concerns of slowing economy New Tax Year Offers Tax Savings BCC comments on labour market statistics Recent Comments Mark George on The Isles of Scilly become

  • Has your business completed its register of Persons with Significant Control?
    laundering investigations Companies and LLPs will also need to keep the register up to date whenever there is a change of significant control in the future Commenting on the issue Gavin Poole corporate partner at Stephens Scown said This new requirement is part of the Government s drive to raise transparency in business to combat criminal activity and to underline the UK s pre eminence in clarity of corporate ownership It means that companies will need to undertake quite a challenging review of their ownership and control structures There are five criteria to determine significant control which extend far beyond just share ownership the criteria requires a review of governance documents and thinking about ways in which a controlling influence can be exerted At Stephens Scown we have created a user friendly process to help answer these complex questions We have drawn up template registers and can help companies or LLPs anywhere in England and Wales to prepare theirs easily Stephens Scown can prepare a standard PSC register for 250 including VAT Stephens Scown has over 290 staff including more than 50 partners across its offices in Truro St Austell and Exeter For more information visit www stephens scown co uk Post navigation Previous Post April 2018 is approaching fast and the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards MEES could stop you from leasing your property Act now Next Post BCC Consumer led growth demonstrates unbalanced nature of our economic recovery Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Search for Recent Posts BCC Welcome deficit reduction in March but huge task still lies ahead A financial controller from a Truro based organisation has gained chartered status after completing three years of studying BCC Disappointing retail sales reinforce concerns of

  • April 2018 is approaching fast and the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) could stop you from leasing your property – Act now!
    ratio will be higher in the South West The implications of this Legislation will be far reaching for both landlords and tenants and we anticipate that in the early stages disputes will arise between parties regarding who will be responsible for any upgrading works Although some improvements are straightforward and can be implemented at minimal cost and disruption it is anticipated that some parties will need to incur significant costs to comply with this legislation It is also important to note that EPC s are only valid for ten years and therefore some buildings will see a lower rating than currently recorded on re certification because of changes to methodology and because an existing certificate does not take into consideration recent alterations made to a property The regulations will be enforced by Local authorities assisted by Trading Standards with fines being linked to rateable values ranging from a minimum of 5 000 to a maximum of 150 000 As a final word of warning it is conceivable that the minimum EPC Rating of E will be raised to say a D C in the future so it may not be cost effective to merely facilitate the minimum work required to improve a property to an E when for relatively little more cost a higher rating can be achieved The new regulations are a game changer in the property market and we strongly recommend both landlords and tenants keep in close contact with us here at Vickery Holman so we may not only keep you well informed as to how the proposed changes will affect you but also so we may provide you with cost effective solutions For further discussion on how to improve your EPC rating please contact Jon Burley Head of Environmental Sustainability at Vickery Holman on 01392 453013
