It’s exciting times for us at Corrigan Associates

Since we opened our doors nine years ago, the Practice has developed at pace. We continue expanding to meet our clients’ needs and have recently welcomed four new recruits. Stuart Crisp has joined us as an Audit Partner and the Accounts and Audit team has increased by a third as we welcome Emma and two Alices. Our skills and advice base is further strengthened with former graduate trainees Jon Turner and Ben Fotheringham both now fully-fledged Tax and Audit Managers.

The expansion of the team has prompted us into using the space we have more innovatively for our employees and clients alike. We are about to embark on a major project to reconfigure the meeting rooms and office space along with a major face lift at the Tramshed. We anticipate completing this early in the New Year and if we’re not breaking any resolutions, would welcome you in joining us for drinks and nibbles and the “big unveil”.

Throughout this exciting period, we continue to advise growing businesses, their owners and private individual looking for a personal but professional approach to financial management. Indeed, our services seem more popular than ever. We approach Brexit with a sense of concern about the impact on business but also with cautious optimism that ultimately an acceptable solution can be found that avoids a damaging impact on trade. No doubt there will be changes in areas such as cross border VAT within the EU and we will keep a keen eye on developments, advising all of our clients on the effects of them.

Making Tax Digital also promises sweeping reforms to Self-Assessment tax returns, although the timetable for implementation has been pushed back. Our Tax team is watching developments with interest and will assess the impact when we have more news.

As with all aspects of how we work at Corrigan Associates, we want our advice and communication to be timely and informative. Please let me or my team know what you think about the newsletter and pass on any suggestions as to how it can be improved.
