More news with the arrival of the draft Finance Bill 2016 legislation which at 647 pages is enough to make you crawl under a very large stone. But as a business person running and developing your business there could be some measures which will affect you and your business which is why we have put together our own summary.

Accountants are used to long, boring documents and there are even days when they despair at the thought of reading another one so here are some interesting facts – on words. The latest Finance Act contains a little under 99,000 words and the Magna Carta, one of history’s most important documents has only 3,600 words – I kid you not. So, out of these which would you say plays the most importance in your life?

But don’t despair as we don’t expect you to sift through hundreds of pages which is why we have stripped out all the jargon and only included the bits that we think are interesting to you. And we make it even simpler by inviting you to talk to us about any aspect of this and remember we don’t charge by the hour so there are no costs or fees for you to contact us.

If you like the way we think – you will like the way we work.
