Your June business and tax updates - Carpenter Box
Published: 18 Jul 2022
Welcome to our June newsletter!
As you may be aware, June is Pride month: the time of year when we celebrate the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals have had on history. At Carpenter Box, we are committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among our workforce, and promoting dignity and respect for all.
Our team celebrated this month by speaking with people who identify as being part of the LGBTQIA+ community. We asked for their thoughts on why Pride is important to them and how people can be better allies to the community in the future. We also celebrated with a lunchtime event launching our newly formed LGBTQIA+ working group, designed to elevate LGBTQIA+ voices and discuss topics to help make the company a more inclusive and diverse working environment. You can read more about what our staff had to say below.
I also want to highlight that entries are now open for Adur & Worthing Business Awards! We are proud sponsors of the Manufacturing category, and have supported the Awards since its inception nearly 15 years ago. The Awards shine a light on successful and innovative businesses whether large, small, new, or established, doing fantastic things in Adur and Worthing. Be sure to take a look at the categories and enter if you can.
I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter.

Happy Pride Month
Each year, Pride is celebrated in the month of June, as that was the month when the Stonewall riots took place.
This year, we interviewed several men and women across the business, who identify as being part of the LGBTQIA+ community. We asked for their thoughts on why Pride is important to them and how people can be better allies to the community in the future.

What is the Trust Registration Service?
The Trust Registration Service (TRS) was first introduced in 2017 as part of the anti-money laundering regulations by HMRC.
All trusts with a UK tax liability were required to register with the TRS. This has now been extended with the TRS now applying to non-taxable trusts.
Find out more about the Trust Registration Services.
What is business asset finance?
Asset financing refers to the use of a company’s balance sheet assets, including short-term investments, inventory and accounts receivable, to borrow money or get a loan. The company borrowing the funds must provide the lender with a security interest in the assets.
You will need to ensure your management accounts are up to date, you have current detailed lists of debtors and creditors and all assets, and you might need up to date projections before a lender will consider your application.

Can I claim National Insurance when hiring a veteran?
From the 6th of April, any employer who hires a military veteran in their first year of civilian employment after leaving the armed forces, will not have to pay National Insurance Contributions (NICs).
As long as the veteran has not worked in a civilian role since leaving the HM Armed Forces, the relief is accessible to any employer of a veteran, no matter when they left the forces. Each time a qualifying veteran leaves the forces the relief will be available.

Carpenter Box Financial Advisers news update
Read the June newsletter!
Last month saw the official start of summer, so we all enjoyed some well-deserved sunshine and holidays.
June, of course, began with a four-day weekend, as we marked Queen Elizabeth II’s historic Platinum Jubilee.
June also presented a host of impressive occasions, from Sir Paul McCartney marking his 80th birthday with a Glastonbury headline slot to what was a month-long Pride Celebration to celebrate our LGBTQIA+ community.
And of course, we had a number of high-profile awareness drives taking place last month, notably Men’s Health Week.
However, we can’t forget the impact of the cost of living emergency, as inflation soared to a 40-year high and put households and businesses under intense financial pressure.
As always, if you have any concerns or questions, we’re here and happy to help. So don’t hesitate to get in touch.
