The Budget and Local & Small BusinessesSpeaking at Andover Mutual Business Group’s March meeting will be David J. Ings, FCA of LangdownsDFK.

Following the budget speech by the Chancellor on 16th March 2016, David Ings FCA of LangdownsDFK will be updating the members on not only on the main headline changes but also the more detailed measures in the ‘small print’ which often have a more significant effect on small business in this area.

Of particular interest on this occasion is the new dividend tax regime and capital distributions from businesses which may have an impact on retiring or reconstructing your business. A number of measures were announced in the budget of July 2015 which come into effect from 6th April 2016 and so David will be reminding us all of the impact of these which in many cases will be quite significant.
