Fostering the continued investment in SMEs and start-ups.
The impact of Covid 19 and the government’s fiscal interventionism has tilted the normal expectations around the tax year end of 2020 in our investments sector. Yet the effectiveness of tax incentive led schemes for investment in SMEs and Start-ups has been proven over the last 40 years and will continue to play a pivotal role in how we rebuild our economy once the crisis has passed.
As part of our strategic relationship with EISA, GB Investments presents a new essential webinar series we are calling ADVOCATE to build knowledge and confidence for advisers across a broad range of related topics affecting us right now.
We will be joined by leading industry experts who will discuss the existing state of play and the key issues for advisers to consider for their clients around approaches to risk, IHT and tax planning, in a forum designed to be both educational and insightful. We have invited IFAs who collectively have extensive experience in investments in this area to join us and share their expertise in the discussions.
