The Business Agenda is a free monthly meeting designed to help South Leicestershire & North Northamptonshire businesses meet up, learn from each other and forge relationships. It is made possible with the help of Harborough Council and the Harborough innovation centre and organised by The Ideal Marketing Company. Each month a different guest speaker talks on a requested business topic. There are also plenty of opportunities to network and discuss the ideas covered. It is held at The Harborough Innovation Centre on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
This month's topic:
Government Tax Attacks in 2017 on Small Business – and what you can do about them
For the first Business Agenda presentation of 2017 Will Smart, partner at Elsby and Co, wants to talk to you about the recent government tax attacks on small businesses. There have been numerous changes that have impacted the backbone of our economy and not the corporates who make millions. Will Smart will discuss the following:
- Background – the current government’s general approach and reasons behind it
- Some major areas of concern that may affect your business
- Dividend tax changes - April 2016 explained
- What can be done about these and other tax hikes
A bit about January's presenter...
Will qualified as a chartered accountant in the late 90’s with a small firm dealing with small owner-managed businesses. He then left practice to join small and medium service businesses that gave him a real insight into what makes businesses tick, grow, and profit.
In 2003, Will set up my own business in south-west London. His clientele consisted of taxpayers and small owner-managed companies. He improved their business performance, dealt with compliance and all with the additional aspect of minimising tax. The rapid growth and success of this practice led to its sale in 2008.
Following a short career break, he returned to Northampton in 2009 and knew that he wanted to join forces with another firm, and after a long search, merged with Elsby & Co, and became a partner.
