Breakfast briefing for local companies

OVER 60 local companies attended a business breakfast seminar organised jointly by Peterborough-based accountants Rawlinsons and Hegarty Solicitors at the Holiday Inn, Peterborough on Wednesday 7 May.

After a quick topical tax update from Rawlinsons partner Colin Crowley, delegates were advised on the latest changes to employment law from Hegarty’s Partner Tim Thompson, including the introduction of tribunal fees and changes to flexible working.

Richard Borrington, a consultant from Rawlinsons P.I.P Limited, Rawlinsons’ joint venture pension and investment company, gave an outline of the employers journey through workplace pensions, whilst Hegarty’s Partner Andrew Heeler brought delegates up to speed on the new consumer rights bill.

“Our annual business seminars run jointly with Hegarty are always well supported by local companies keen to understand the various opportunities available to them in this challenging economic climate,” said seminar chairman Colin Crowley.
