Social Media in the workplace

Social media is a powerful marketing and communication tool.  However, when things go wrong reputations of both employers and employees can be damaged. The seminar will provide delegates with a clear insight into the legal implications of social media in the workplace.

Teresa Thomas will cover the following during the seminar:

  • How to handle social media in the workplace
  • How to protect your business in the social media sphere

Teresa will go through some recent case law decisions and explain, in layman’s terms, the reasoning behind them, so that you have the confidence and knowledge to take formal action, should it be necessary. Teresa will also explain how to tailor your procedures and training to protect your business and, as such, reduce the potential for social media abuse.

Making Tax Digital and Cloud accounting

At the time of planning the seminar there is some uncertainty about the detail of Making Tax Digital. What is certain, however, is that it is going to happen.  It is also certain that many affected people will avoid thinking about it until last minute panic sets in. By attending this event you can avoid being one of them.

Anyone who remembers George Osborne’s trumpeting of the end of the annual tax return may find it ironic that this “tax simplification” initiative could leave some individuals making six returns/submissions a year. Alan Nesbitt will provide an update on the current position and its likely impact on individuals, landlords and businesses, along with guidance on what you need to be doing to avoid falling foul of the new rules.

Perhaps more importantly he will also demonstrate how businesses and landlords can use Cloud accounting solutions to fulfil their tax obligations and improve their business performance and quality of life. All of this will be presented in a practical, clear, jargon-free manner.
