Property Tax: Summer Budget 2015 changes by Megan Lewis-Bourke

The 2015 Summer Budget included several significant changes to the property tax regime.  Most practitioners have clients with rental income, the changes will have implications for almost everyone working in tax.  Have you considered the implications of the changes for your clients?  Have you had any good ideas for how to limit the impact for them?

Masterclass: Share plans and incentives by Barbara Onuonga

Getting these right can motivate your employees to take your business to new heights. Get them wrong and you’ll have a poorly incentivised team running for the door! When it comes to share plans, one size does not fit all. In the private company world, it is particularly important to understand share plans as they may be a valuable form of incentive for a growing company. Share plans come in many different guises but there are plenty of points which a company needs to consider before implementing an employee share plan.

Launch Event

What do we mean by a fair tax system?
