Dyke Yaxley is launching a new ‘Solicitors’ Breakfast Club’ in response to a growing number of requests from local law firms. The breakfast seminars are designed to arm local lawyers with key information about the latest major financial planning issues.
Four specially-themed sessions are already in the calendar, to be held at our offices in both Shrewsbury and Telford and led by Tony Elliott and Pam Mason from our Tax Planning team.
Managing director Laurie Riley said: “We have launched the breakfast club in response to a number of requests from solicitors across the county for updates on specific accountancy-related topics.
“The programme for 2015/16 focuses on the four key topics which attract the most enquiries from solicitors – commercial property, residential property and tax issues, employee share schemes, and lifetime inheritance tax planning.
“Our team of experts will be concentrating on delivering relevant and concise information to present solicitors with everything they need to know.
“Timings of the seminars have been designed so that the working day isn’t interrupted, with a 7.30am start and a finish time of 9am.”
The first seminar, on Tax and Commercial Property, will be held at Brassey Road in Shrewsbury on September 15, and Stafford Park in Telford on September 16.
The second session, on Residential Property and Taxation Issues, will be at Shrewsbury on November 3, and Telford on November 4.
Seminars three and four – on Unravelling Employee Share Schemes, and Lifetime Inheritance Tax Planning – will be on February 9 and 10, and May 10 and 11 respectively.
Tony Elliott said: “Our first seminar will be particularly relevant for solicitors who are involved in the acquisition and disposal of freehold and leasehold commercial property. It will also be ideal for those looking for a refresher on the significant changes to capital allowances on fixtures, as well as high-level review of the complex interaction of VAT and commercial property.”
Pam Mason said: “Our November seminar is aimed at solicitors involved in residential conveyancing and will provide an overview of anti-avoidance measures. It will also look at Private Residence Relief and its application to property transactions.”
