Autumn Statement update from Saunderson House

With a general election set for 7 May 2015, but the budget deficit still stubbornly high, Chancellor George Osborne’s ability to sweeten the electorate with tax cuts and other giveaways in the Autumn Statement (3 December 2014) was limited. However, the Chancellor did announce major changes to both Stamp Duty and ISAs, which we have summarised in our final Pointers Newsletter of the year.

The main focus of this Newsletter though is the game-changing pension changes proposed earlier this year (and unchanged by the Autumn Statement), which are currently before Parliament and scheduled to come into effect from 6 April 2015, and a detailed look at the main impacts of these on individuals young and old.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
