Opportunities that lay ahead for SMEs in the Mid Sussex Area.
Following the UK’s Budget announcement in March, expert HHBA members within financial services will digest and discuss the implications of the 2021 Budget and the opportunities that lay ahead for SMEs in the Mid Sussex Area.
We are delighted to announce that our panel of experts will be Paula Tomlinson from On the Spot Accountants, Michael Sharp from Sharp Wealth Management and Kevin Stewart from Mid Sussex District Council.
They will discuss what the budget means for you personally and what is the likely direction of travel for future taxation that will influence the amount of capital that you can extract from your business both now and into the future.
In the new normal as we recover from COVID19 they will outline their experience around business planning and inject some guidance on how to plan financially at this time, maximising any available help to restart local businesses.
