What might have been in the Budget and what can you do now…

Luke Prout, Tax Partner, Streets Chartered Accountants

Whilst the Autumn Budget has been cancelled, it is widely reported and more than expected that businesses and individuals will face increased taxation to help recoup the cost of measures put in place to support the economy during the pandemic. With this background in mind, Luke will look at potential tax saving ideas for businesses for 2020/21 as well as an insight into possible areas that may be targeted in the next Budget.

The pandemic and year-end reporting

Robert Anderson, Audit Partner, Streets Chartered Accountants

Few, if any businesses, will not have been affected by the impact of the pandemic. A situation which will no doubt see the need to re-visit financial management and reporting. Robert’s presentation will look at the impact of the situation in terms of:

  • The pandemic - in year or a post balance sheet event
  • Year-end financial statement, provisions and valuations
  • Going concern and disclosures
  • When to report
  • Looking forwards
