Your July business and tax updates - Carpenter Box

Welcome to our July newsletter!

I hope everyone managed to keep as cool as possible during the unprecedented heatwave that we experienced last week.

What a performance from the Lionesses last night in the Euros semi-final! That cheeky backheel! We all wish them the very best of luck in the final on Sunday.

The last month included English wine week, which gave us the opportunity to celebrate all the fantastic wines on offer from vineyards and wineries across the region, we are proud to note many of these wines being produced by clients of ours all around you, with many of these vineyards offering wine tasting events and tours all year round.

We were proud to attend the South East Property Awards on the evening of the 14th, where we were delighted to present the award in the category of: "Commercial Development of the Year' to Here+Now Developments and cheer on all the other winners, being recognised for their amazing achievements in the South East property industry.

Also featured in this month's edition is the latest Academies Annual Update, which is a virtual update on finance and governance. This update has information for academy trustees, accounting officers and CFOs. It also reveals how to get the best out of your auditor, technical updates and workshops on current challenges. Including managing inflation, staffing and VAT.

I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter.

Kind regards,

Carpenter Box Financial Advisers news update

Read the July newsletter!

The second half of the year is upon us and, dare we say it, the nights are starting to draw in. But for now, many of our thoughts will be turning towards our summer holidays, and we'll be hoping we're not caught up in the ongoing problems at our airports.

If you're staying in the UK during July, there's also plenty to get excited about, from music events such as Wireless Festival and BST Hyde Park, to sporting spectacles like Wimbledon and, of course, the Commonwealth Games, which begin in Birmingham on July 28th.

July also sees a whole host of specialist events as diverse as National Picnic Month and World Emoji Day on July 18th, so there's no shortage of things to get involved with over the coming weeks.

But as ever, we're very conscious that times are tough for many people right now, as inflation soars higher and higher and the cost of our food and energy goes up.

As always, if you have any concerns or questions we're here and happy to help, so don't hesitate to get in touch.
