Keens City Round Up: A busy and exciting time for MK

It was great to get back to City Breakfast last week, the first get together of 2019 and fantastic to see so many of our sponsors and their guests coming together for what is now I believe the largest breakfast group in the City. January saw the launch of the Centre for Cities 2019 report which focu… More

Not long until MTD!

With Making Tax Digital (MTD) coming into effect in April of this year (2019), there are some key preparations that your business will need to make quite soon if your turnover exceeds the VAT threshold of £85,000. You’ve probably heard a lot of rumours as to what MTD really means, so we wanted to… More

The Chancellor’s first Spring Statement

Mr Hammond made clear some while ago that he wanted his Spring Statement to be a short financial briefing rather than a mini-Budget, complete with rabbit-out-of-hat announcements.

Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credits: Beware the Competent Professional

I’m sure that we’ve all heard of the Research and Development (R&D) Tax relief scheme, as it has been widely promoted by government as one of the key support areas, leading to innovation in UK industry. At KSK MK, we have been assisting clients with claims for R&D since its inception in … More

The Chancellor’s second Budget of 2017

After the national insurance u-turn he was forced to make after his March Budget this year, that was probably his aim. In any case, for a variety of economic and politic… More

Autumn Budget 2017 – The Key Points

If the chancellor was asked to produce a Budget that would not rock the political boat, then it looks as if that is what he has delivered. The total net cost of his policy decisions for 2018/19 was a little over £6 billion with just £1.585 billion attributable to tax policy decisions. The main tax… More

Keens City Round Up: Vital Signs for Milton Keynes 2017

MK Community Foundation recently launched it’s new Vital Signs 2017 Report. I think that these reports give balance to the MK agenda.
