Herts B2B expo
Enterprise had a fantastic day at the Herts B2B expo on Wednesday 29th June. The event was held at the Novotel Hotel Stevenage. We had many interesting conversations with business owners and Emma ran an extremely successful speed networking event where business owners came together to exchange details of their companies.

Wilbury Way networking event
On 12th January over thirty businesses from our local area (and beyond!) gathered in Back On Track to attend the Wilbury Way networking event. We've been running it for several months in the aim to bring together local business to network, raise their business profile, and just to get to know the neighbours! Today's event was particularly special for us, as Peter Lilley our local MP not just attended, but gave an clear and informative speech on business support, and agreed to a question and answer session afterwards. It was a chilly morning, but thanks to Clockhouse Catering, there were plenty of hot drinks to go round and plates of delicious food. After everyone had helped themselves, Peter Lilley took the stage. He discussed Business Support, in a speech that roused plenty of discussion for the question and answer section of the event!
Many of us were surprised by what they learned of which they weren’t previously aware. Tax on women’s sanitary products for example, is a widely debated issue, and despite it being so debated, there were very few who knew that it is out of the jurisdiction of our government as it is EU law. There were many shocked faces when the MP pointed out that even if every single Member of Parliament voted to lift the tax, there would be no change. The UK government actually hypothecated the tax and all the money is donated to Women’s Charities.
After the question and answer session, networking resumed until ten when attendees began to leave. On the way out, Peter Lilley said
“Some important issues were raised today, including the problem created by the cliff edge VAT threshold that that limits growth of small business and the abolition of the growth acceleration program. It’s something I will definitely look in to.”
It was a great event and we are very honoured to have had Peter Lilley in attendance. We hope if you couldn't make it this time that we see you for the next event.

Property Tax Workshop
Thank you to everybody who participated in this lively workshop yesterday! We had a range of participants including accountants, professional landlords, students and those just starting out in property investment. With all the changes announced in the Summer Budget, especially around interest relief restriction, this workshop was invaluable to some of our participants. Looking forward to the next one in 2016!
“Very good overview of Property Tax issues and potential opportunities”
“Clarified my thoughts on investment planning for the future and exit strategy”
