RWC Spring 2017 Bulletin

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2017. There were a number of developments at the end of last year which we have reported on, including a round-up of the announcements made in the new Chancellor’s first – and last – Autumn Statement. We hope you enjoy reading it.

Our lead stories for this edition are:

  • Your year end checklist: time to focus The new Chancellor’s first – and last – spring Budget on 8 March could make tax planning all the more important before the next tax year.
  • Estate planning with your pension Your pension could be the last thing you draw on in retirement – it can be a valuable estate planning tool.
  • Buy-to-let: a taxing issue April will mark the start of another measure designed to increase tax for buy-to-let investors.
  • Curtains for the Autumn Statement The 2016 Autumn Statement was the new Chancellor’s first set piece – but the news was not particularly good.

We hope you find the contents of this newsletter useful and informative and, as always, let us know if you think you may be affected by any of the topics in this edition.
