SME Update: topical issues for businesses and business owners

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 -
3:30pm to 6:15pm

Clive Beer, Emma Chamberlain, Alan Kennedy and Michael Thomas
Invite you to a virtual conference, in support of the two tax charities, TaxAid and Tax Help for Older People

Tax professionals kindly support the Tax Charities’ Bridge the Gap appeal throughout the year, but at the moment all other fund raisers are cancelled.
Many vulnerable taxpayers are in even greater need of the Charities’ services during and after the COVID-19 pandemic and the charities are providing special services tailored to the specific needs at this time.
We are hosting this Virtual Conference to help Bridge their funding Gap!
