Many employers give their employees a gift at Christmas.  If you are one of those generous employers have you considered whether there are any tax implications for the employee on the gift you give?…
Businesses are generally started by enthusiastic entrepreneurs who either want to create something which can grow and has value or create a work/life balance for themselves.  Whichever it is there are lots of things the business owner needs to be involved with which may not have occurred to them during the excitement of starting a business.

It is more than 3 years ago that small businesses began to have an obligation to set up an auto enrolment pension scheme for their employees.  There was a lot of information available to employers at the time through the media as well as by post so there couldn't have been anyone who wasn't aware that they had a legal duty to set up a pension scheme for their employees who were eligible to join a scheme. In February 2016 I was invited to give evidence to…
