Will firms run out of cash and what should they do about it? – Professional Practices Alliance Webinar, 13 October 2021, 9.30 am – 10.30 am BST

Join the Professional Practices Alliance (PPA) for the expert panel discussion “Will firms run out of cash and what should they do about it?”, on Wednesday, 13 October 2021, in which our expert panel will discuss forward-planning strategies for firms to address the implications of tax changes and basis period reforms.

Earlier this summer, the Treasury launched a consultation to reform taxation for self-employed businesses where the accounting year for the business differs from the tax year.  Under the proposals, the transition for the change was due to take place in 2022/23, however last week the Treasury announced a delay by at least 12 months with the transition not coming into effect before 2023/24.  In addition, the Government recently announced a new health and social care levy by increasing National Insurance Contributions by 1.25% to take effect from 6 April 2022, before the Budget announcement on 27 October.  This Professional Practices Alliance webinar will explore the changes that all Partners and Finance Directors should consider and the impact to their businesses, including:

  • What are the changes that have been announced?
  • How will they affect tax payments?
  • Will you need to review how your firm is capitalised and the strategic implications, in light of the new requirements?
  • How will the changes affect a business’s ability to invest in its future?
  • Will there be an impact for senior employees in LLPs?
  • How should firms promote senior employees?  What are the wider implications and how should new partners be rewarded?
  • What will the effect be on structuring (and even the nature of the entity) and partner/LLP status?

Date: Wednesday, 13 October 2021
Time: 9.30 am – 10.30 am BST
