In this week’s Business Herald Podcast, we talk about the main UK Business News and Economy issues. We discuss: 

  • Arcadia administration, Debenhams Insolvency, and a raft of CVAs and ask “Is insolvency just a way to play the system, or can SMEs benefit too?”
  • We claim a success on Business Rate Relief paid to supermarkets over lockdown, them mostly having agreed to repay £1.2 BILLION back to the government. 
  • We look at whether there could be tax cuts on the horizon, or whether we’ll just see lots of stealth taxes anyway
  • and the financial impact of “I’m a Celebrity” to the local economy
  • and much more besides. 

Your host as always is Steven Mather Solicitor, Lawyer for SMEs, Author and Podcaster.  We’re joined this week by Jamie Cochrane from PBC Business Recovery and Insolvency, and Tej Gawera of TaxAssist Accountants in Leicester.
