Business strategic evaluation
When a company commences there should be a clear vision about what the business strategy should be and how this will be achieved. In addition there should be a time horizon on growing the business with specific objectives in mind, including eventually the option to exit, whether by sale or ceasing. A business should re-evaluate its strategy every few years or more frequently to assess if the vision remains valid, or needs to be adapted to changing internal or external factors.
MW Interim Finance assists owner managers and directors in an objective review of their strategy and provides the resource to deliver on the changes identified.

“Tax does not have to be taxing” so says HMRC, but the mantra should be, “be afraid very afraid”, when it comes to reviewing the P2 2016/17 coding notices currently being distributed. With all the new changes to tax free interest and dividends be sure to check any adjustments to your code for these. The assumption HMRC uses is based on the 2014/15 self-assessment returns and may be substantially incorrect for the coming year. Even more issues are foreseen with 2015/16 self-assessment returns, where potentially increased dividends are paid out before 5th April 2016 before the £5k allowance takes effect. This is especially relevant to business owners, directors and senior managers who may face negative tax codes in 2016/17 and 2017/18.
Are you a business owner who uses dividends as a means of extracting income from their company? The planning of dividends, salary remuneration and pensions in the period up to 5th April 2016 and the impact for the next two years, is a critical part of business planning.
If your business needs objective guidance on this aspect, requires a strategic review or has a project that requires resource to implement, contact Martin Walby at MW Interim Finance for a confidential discussion on +44 (0) 7876 566875 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
