Rickard Luckin Budget Presentations
No sooner than the Chancellor’s self-declared “last Spring budget” was announced in full on Wednesday 8th March, Rickard Luckin’s expert Tax Team were busy applying their knowledge and experience to the new developments in their annual budget presentations, held on Thursday 9th March at the stunning Stock Brook Country Club, Billericay.
The informative presentations were very well-attended with over 200 delegates from the local business community enjoying breakfast and lunchtime insights from Rickard Luckin’s experienced Tax Team, over excellent food and coffee.
As ever, great care and attention had been taken by Rickard Luckin to analyse the Chancellor’s announcements in the context of how they will apply to and affect local business.
While there were no particular surprises from this relatively low-key budget announcement, there was certainly much to consider and discuss throughout the day, from controversial plans to raise National Insurance contributions of the self-employed, to the imminent Apprenticeship Levy for employers and plans to Make Tax Digital (MTD), a revolutionary strategy that aims to simplify tax payment processes and herald an end to some of the most common tax-related errors.
Rickard Luckin’s proficient team of Tax Directors, Jamie Nice, Kevin Thomas and Peter Warren, along with Tax Manager James Boustead, not only seamlessly hosted the presentations but were also on hand to answer specific questions from their audience, making for the lively and enlightening community-style discussion typical of Rickard Luckin’s ever-popular gatherings, with plenty of mingling and post-presentation analysis after the main events.
The successful and hugely informative budget presentations underline Rickard Luckin’s passion for providing a truly knowledgeable, bespoke and value-added service to the local business community, with a personal and professional approach that is recognised and appreciated by their clients.
