  • BCC Director General on EU deal: some potential benefits, but deal falls well short of expectations
    those in the City of London believe that their access to markets and capital is secure It is not clear if these vital safeguards are guaranteed And on the complex and emotive issue of migration what really matters is whether the UK has tools that allow it to balance the business need for labour and skills with the need for social cohesion Given that its focus has been restricted just to benefits the deal cannot substantially address this balance or the consequent impacts on the UK economy and public policy There is no certainty at this stage whether the deal s outcomes are legally enforceable and irreversible What s more the deal falls well short of the business expectations we set out nearly a year ago If delivered this deal would change some aspects of the UK s relationship with the EU Yet it is inescapable that deal or no deal the EU itself remains largely unreformed The choice facing businesses and businesspeople across Britain is now becoming clearer For business it is a choice between remaining in a largely unchanged EU albeit with some potential new safeguards for the UK or a future outside the EU with the near term uncertainty and disruption of leaving On the British Chambers of Commerce s approach to the referendum campaign Longworth added The BCC will not be campaigning for either Remain or Leave given the very real divisions that exist in business communities across the UK In the months leading up to the referendum we will actively survey business opinion and inform the debate without fear or favour Additionally we will be demanding clear information and facts from both the Remain and Leave campaigns so that businesspeople can make an informed choice at the ballot box Post navigation Previous Post Cash Extraction

  • Cash Extraction – All Change
    liquidation of a company Currently distributions are largely deemed to be capital distributions and thus within the capital gains tax regime of 10 The proposed changes could result in distributions being subject to income tax thus increasing tax liabilities Steve Maggs Tax Director explained Although the new rules relating to liquidations are not yet set in concrete with under two months to go until the new tax year it is prudent to seriously consider the impact of these new changes and whether you take urgent action before the end of the tax year There are many SME s in Cornwall who may be stung by these proposed new rules seeing a larger tax bill if a liquidation takes place in future tax years I am recommending that companies considering liquidation and particularly those with significant cash balances arising from accumulated profits seriously consider a formal liquidation prior to 6 April 2016 Although the clock is ticking there is still time to take decisive action to reduce your cash extraction tax bill For more information please visit the Steve Maggs Tax Blogg at http www rrlcornwall co uk steve maggs tax blog or contact Steve direct on 01872 276116 Post navigation Previous Post A new employability adventure Next Post BCC Director General on EU deal some potential benefits but deal falls well short of expectations 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
