  • Tax revenues rise as small and medium-size businesses profit from stronger economy


    18.05.17

    Frank Nash, partner at Blick Rothenberg, said: "This points to a strengthening economy and higher profits in the small and medium-size business sector. It is estimated that approximately 10% of the rise in tax revenues was through smaller companies paying increased dividends in the first quarter of 2016.

    "The challenge will be to retain this level of receipts over the next two years if economic growth slows during the Brexit negotiations."

    He added: "This is almost double the amount of tax collected five years ago and underlines gradual increases in the tax rate over that period and a strengthening commercial market in England."

  • Revealed: taxman's faulty website can charge too much


    02.05.17

    Nimesh Shah, a partner at the accountancy firm Blick Rothenberg said: "The UK's personal tax system has become littered with numerous thresholds, allowances and reliefs, most of which have been politically driven without any consideration given to the adding complexity," he said. It has got to the point where the Government and HMRC are not far from a complete rewrite of the tax code."

    "This is not something you would expect HMRC to get wrong. Some may feel they are forced to hire an accountant to file their return for them, which is more expense. The idea of the online system is to make it simple enough for people to do it themselves," Mr. Shah said.
