Alexander & Co launches 'Business Growth Series'

Alexander and Co Chartered Accountants is pleased to announce that, in partnership with Pareto Alexander and the Business Growth Hub, it is launching a series of free breakfast seminars and networking events.

These events will provide essential tax, financial and business growth advice to all businesses, including privately owned businesses and entrepreneurs, those that have recently started trading or are scaling-up as well as those businesses that are generally looking for advice on how to grow and improve profitability.

The seminars will provide opportunities to network and for the speakers to share knowledge, experiences and examples of good business practice. The series aims to create a regular forum in which to encourage further collaborations and help fuel businesses growth.

John McCaffery, Tax Partner at Alexander & Co explains “We have previously organised similar events specifically for clients, or by request, engaging directly with individual companies. Following positive feedback, we are opening these up to any interested business owners, employees and entrepreneurs, not just clients.

“We are excited to be bringing these events in partnership with Pareto Alexander and The Business Growth Hub. Our combined understanding and experience in business planning and growth will provide attendees with a wide-range of knowledge and insight to help assist their business strategies and growth plans.”

The first event of 2020 is focusing on the end of tax year, and what preparations are required as we enter a new tax year. Given that the delayed 2019 budget is now scheduled for 11 March 2020 and with the UK exiting the EU on 31 January 2020, there will be a wide range of tax issues affecting businesses throughout 2020.

Alex Savage from Pareto Alexander will be discussing “Are you indispensable? SMEs often have one or two key individuals they rely heavily on for the business to be a success, how can you manage that risk? Alex will also consider the importance of a shareholder agreement, especially in a growing business.

We are delighted to welcome Peter Gaunt from the Business Growth Hub who will be speaking on Brexit planning for businesses in 2020 and how to minimise disruption and take advantage of any arising opportunities.

The events will be held at Barclays Eagle Labs at Union Building on Albert Square, M2 6LW. The first event is taking on Tuesday 24 March 2020 from 08:30 to 10:30. Ticket registration is required (which is free) and available now from Eventbrite at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/preview?eid=88668867971

Starting at 08:30 there will be an opportunity for informal networking, whilst having a spot of breakfast, before we welcome our speakers, who will provide concise presentations. There will again be an opportunity for networking and to ask any specific questions to any of the presenters, or other staff members present afterwards
