Mind the Gap – Living Wage & Pensions

Overall, the changes to business rates are good news for many, but you need to mind the gap as there are other changes you need to factor. This includes the increase in the living wage from the 1st April 2016 and the introduction of compulsory pensions.

To find out more about the living wage please click here.To prepare for the changes to pensions, you firstly need to be aware of your ‘staging date’. Then we recommend you get advice from your accountant, financial advisor or attend a seminar to find out what’s next. The FSB has advice on this here.

Please get in touch if you need any additional help with these things.
