  • Public sector IR35 changes come into force April 2017

    In the 2016 Autumn Statement, the Chancellor Philip Hammond announced that new rules would apply to “off-payroll working” in the public sector from April 2017. Essentially this tax reform is the next step of tightening up the rules around intermediaries, usually known as IR35. These rules were consulted on in the summer of 2016, and we responded making clear our serious concerns about the feasibil...

  • Hammond’s National Insurance plans scrapped, now what?

    Westminster was stunned today by news that the plan to increase Class 4 National Insurance Contribution (NICs) for the self-employed was to be dropped. Chancellor Philip Hammond made a statement and wrote to MPs  announcing this swift shift only seven days after his Spring Budget. He is by no means the first Chancellor to beat a hasty retreat on Budget measures: In recent times Osborne, Darling an...

  • National Insurance rise for self-employed scrapped

    Planned increases to National Insurance contributions (NICs) for the self-employed have been scrapped. In a letter to the Treasury committee, Chancellor Philip Hammond confirmed that “there will be no increases in NICs rates in this Parliament”. Seen by many as breaking a 2015 general election manifesto pledge, the proposed increased to NICs were highly criticised – not least by Tory backbenchers....

  • Were Metallica right about Napster?

    With the recent bombshell unfolding that Metallica had happily plonked their latest album on the newly-rebranded Napster streaming service, I found myself contemplating the famous early 2000s feud between the two parties with the benefit of hindsight.

  • Failing to take care of legal issues costing UK’s SMEs £13.6 billion per year

    The phrase “prevention is better than cure” has never been more true when you look at the financial impact of overlooking the legalities of operating a business in the UK. There’s an underlying reluctance by the UK’s small businesses to use lawyers to take care of their legal business, which can result in significant financial loss. Interestingly these legal costs can often be avoided, which is pa...

  • Trademarking your company: Everything you need to know

    So, you’re done registering your company . Great! That means you own the legal rights to the name, logo and slogans – and nobody else can use them… right? Sorry, unfortunately not. Registering a company name merely means that other businesses can’t register the same (or a very similar) name at Companies House. Remember, your company name and trading name aren’t necessarily the same thing. Establis...

  • Spring Budget – National Insurance distracting from real issues

    Should the self-employed be up in arms over what some papers are calling the Chancellor’s “raid” on their taxes? Was Hammond’s Budget a signal against entrepreneurialism and self-starters? For some types of business it will certainly feel that way, especially those suffering from the business rates increases. In many respects the biggest problem was around timing, the pain wasn’t delivered at the ...
