Holidays & Covid
As we all know, the Government has implemented a traffic light system – of green, amber and red countries – in relation to holidaying outside the UK this year. From 17 May, it is no longer illegal to go abroad – or rather you do not need an essential reason to do so.
In the third of our Private Business and Wealth associates’ Q&A series, where we cover a range of topical issues, we look at the rights and obligations from an employment legal perspective for both personal and business trips.
What happens to the pet when a relationship breaks down?
What happens if you and your partner or spouse split and you have a pet together? Can you get a custody agreement to regulate the time you and your ex each get to spend with your pet? And is there anything you can do to protect yourself against a dispute about your pet?
In the second of our Private Business and Wealth associates’ Q&A series, where we cover a range of topical issues, we look at what happens to your pet when your human relationship breaks down.
Recent Budget: Boost for entrepreneurs?
It is clear that the Chancellor sees UK business as being at the very centre of the economic recovery from the pandemic. Rather than making a series of tax hikes across the board to cover the Government’s substantial deficit (as some had predicted), they have rather opted to provide initial support and incentives to boost businesses, encourage investment, and bring in talent from overseas, before then implementing a corporation tax increase in a couple of years’ time.
In the first in our Private Business and Wealth associates’ Q&A series, where we cover a range of topical issues, we look at what can entrepreneurs and those looking to start their own businesses make of the Budget.
