4 January 2017

HMRC have announced that CON29 searches provided by local authorities will include VAT from 1 Jan 2017.

How will this affect me?
The good news is that here at SearchFlow we have already prepared for the changes. The addition of VAT is directly handled within our systems seamlessly, to ensure minimal disruption and to allow you to provide accurate information to your clients.

What should I do?
We will keep you informed during the next few weeks as remainder are likely to go live on the 6 April. We will confirm details with local authorities and will give you as much notice as possible of any changes. If prices of local searches are increased by local authorities, we will add VAT automatically, as with the other searches.

Why your firm should support working mothers to the hilt

Georgina Hamblin

If you are going to balance the demands of work and childcare, and stay sane, you need to adapt, and with any luck your firm will adapt with you. In doing so you will both win, and your respective productivity will soar. When I had my son, I realised just how lucky I was. Not only did I have the incredible support of my, and my husband’s, family through this life-changing time, but I had a firm that offered me complete flexibility and control over my return to business life.
