Education Matters – March 2017

Welcome to the latest edition of Education Matters.

The year has started off very well for us at Kingston Smith; in particular, we are proud to tell you that we have been ranked top for Overall Service and Charity Expertise in the Charity Finance Audit Survey. This is the result of hard work from a great team and is a work ethic applied across our whole organisation including our education department. We are very proud of the positive feedback from our clients who recognise the support and value we add through our expertise.

There is no doubt that the events of 2016 will live long in the memory of the sector and are sure to shape its short-term future. Looking ahead, what financial challenges can we expect to come over the hill in 2017 and beyond?

In this issue:

  • Applying Good Governance
  • Payrolling Benefits (call to action!)
  • Salary Sacrifice
  • Apprenticeship Levy – New rules from April 2017
  • A Score Draw on VAT (for HMRC and the Education Sector)
  • Changes to Fundraising Regulations
  • Gender Pay Gap Reporting
  • Off-Payroll Workers and the use of intermediaries
