#SMEs have reasons to be cheerful in 2015

The manufacturing and services sectors are growing; the number of firms that are recruiting is at an all-time high; and businesses are well-placed to grow in 2015.

These are the findings of the British Chambers of Commerce Q4 Quarterly Economic Survey, which polled almost 7,000 UK businesses.

Director general John Longworth said: “With employment and investment intentions at historically high levels, businesses are gearing up for a big year in 2015. It is now vitally important that firms are able to convert their growth ambitions into reality.”

However, he warned that “political point scoring” in this election year must not get in the way of “sound economic policy”.

Christmas party 'could bring #tax shock'

Employers could scupper the season of goodwill by leaving their staff exposed to a tax charge after their Christmas party, accountants have warned.

Employees may be liable for a tax charge if their bosses spend more than £150 per head during the year on entertaining staff, tax rules state.

The £150 allowance had not changed since June 2003, said tax partner Andy Sanford, of Blick Rothenberg.

He said that firms should monitor expenditure or face affecting morale.

Entertainment of staff is considered by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) as a benefit in kind which is taxable. So after the £150 allowance, a tax bill could be levied on individual employees.

According to new data from information services firm Experian, more first-time entrepreneurs are starting businesses than ever before, and these debut directors tend to come from less affluent backgrounds than the entrepreneurs of yesteryear.

A third of the first-time business owners that started a company last year had a household income of less than £25,000 a year, the report showed, up from less than a quarter in 2009. #sme
