COVID-19 was something that nobody could have foreseen.

Unfortunately, many businesses didn’t make it through the pandemic, forcing many companies to close their doors for good.

Whilst many organisations were struggling, there was an increase in hobby businesses. Many people who had been made redundant rose from the ashes and set up their own businesses.

If you are one of the 407,510 businesses set up in 2020 or you are thinking about setting a business up, you’ll want to read our latest guide to find out what you need to consider.

What are the pros and cons of a company electric car?

Many individuals are making more conscious decisions when it comes to the environment. One way many people are looking to reduce their carbon footprint is by purchasing an electric car.

Some companies will offer their employee’s a company car. Company cars can be a great benefit, despite the potentially higher personal tax charge. With the pressure to be environmentally conscious, many companies who offer company cars to their employees, are providing electric cars as an option.

Employers offering such schemes will be aware of the benefit-in-kind tax rules and the tax impact. The impact is lower on the employee when they choose a lower emission car.

Is the shift to electric cars the way forward?

Owning multiple properties as a residential landlord can be a lucrative way to make some extra money. Many first time landlords are unaware of the tax planning they should consider before proceeding, leading to some mistakes. With interest rates declining for residential landlords and a new two-year fixed-rate mortgage for buy-to-let properties, now may feel a good time to consider becoming a residential landlord.

But what tax planning should you consider to take advantage of low-interest rates?
