Big tax changes for landlords: The buy-to-let market is thriving, but the government’s recent tax changes for landlords, announced in the Summer Budget and last week’s Autumn Statement, will significantly increase landlords’ tax bills and, in some cases, to a massive extent. For more information please read our article on the big tax changes and what they mean for landlords and investors.

Auto Enrolment: There are hundreds of thousands of smaller companies approaching their staging date and the ability of pension providers to provide solutions is becoming a real issue of capacity. It is not usually about just having a pension scheme, but having the process and systems in place to collate the data required to present and report to the Pensions Regulator.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT): SDLT is a significant issue for property developers and investors seeking to maximise profits and achieve costs inefficiencies on projects. One of the welcome announcements in the 2014 Autumn Statement included the immediate reform of SDLT on the purchase of residential property. For more information on how this may reduce the cost of buying a home, please click here.
