Succession planning concerns for family business
While business profitability is the top
concern for family-run firms, issues around
succession planning dominate the top ten worries
for family business owners, according to research
from Close Brothers Asset Management. Four of
the top ten worries identified by family business
owners are linked to succession planning, with
35% of respondents citing developing the next
generation of their family business as a concern,
and more than a third (34%) are worried about
training responsible future owners of their
business. The research also found that trading
profitably is the top concern for family business
owners, identified by 40% of respondents, while
personal finances and preparing for later life
is a worry for 38% of owners. (EnterpriseQuest)

Concerns raised about keeping digital tax records.
The Chairman of the Treasury Committee, Andrew
Tyrie, has written to Financial Secretary David
Gauke to express concerns about the forthcoming
requirement for tax records to be kept in digital
form. According to Mr Tyrie, it has only recently
become clear that business owners will need
to use particular software and systems to meet
this requirement. He has warned that this could
affect "the overwhelming majority"
of firms and highlighted research from the ICAEW,
which suggests that 75% of business owners will
need to change their record-keeping systems.
intends to have a fully digital tax system in
place by 2020. In March 2016, the Tax Faculty
Team at ICAEW reported that, according to HMRC
representatives, "using Excel is not digital
record keeping". Mr Tyrie also suggests
that prescribing particular software could increase
compliance costs for most business owners, which
he describes as "cause for serious concern",
and calls for a thorough impact assessment before
digital record keeping is made compulsory. (EnterpriseQuest)

invoices cost freelancers average of £1,800.
Micro-business owners and freelancers write
off an average of £1,804 in unpaid invoices
every year, according to new research from FreeAgent.
Overall, unpaid invoices are costing the UK's
five million micro-businesses as much as £9
billion, while an additional £800 million
in sales tax could be lost to the Treasury each
year. Ed Molyneux, FreeAgent Chief Executive
said: "While it's possible that some business
owners may be incorrectly writing off some of
their invoices, there are likely to be many
more who are still holding out hope for payment
and have not yet written them off as bad debt.
Therefore the actual amount of 'lost' money
per year may be much greater." (EnterpriseQuest)

in insurance claims for late payment and insolvency.
New figures from the Association of British
Insurers (ABI) indicate that almost £150
million in insurance claims for late payment
or customer insolvency was paid to business
owners in 2015, an increase of 42% and the highest
level of claims since 2007. The number of claims
made by firms on trade credit insurance policies
increased by 19% in 2015 to more than 11,000
claims, while almost 12,000 policies were sold
by trade credit insurers. Mark Shepherd, ABI
General Insurance Policy Manager said: "Economic
uncertainty appears to be causing firms to claim
on their insurance if one of their customers
pays late, or not at all. Last year, insurers
paid out £149 million to businesses owed
money by their customers, allowing them to continue
to operate in uncertain times." (EnterpriseQuest)

growth in part-time self-employment. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/about-us/how-citizens-advice-works/media/press-releases/women-and-parents-driving-growth-in-part-time-self-employment
The number of self-employed people working
part-time hours has increased faster than any
other type of employment, according to Citizens
Advice analysis of the latest labour market
statistics. Since 2010, the number of self-employed
part-time workers has increased by over a third
to 1.35 million, with much of the increase driven
by the working habits of women and parents.
Citizens Advice has identified that two thirds
of people who work for themselves on a part-time
basis are women, while the number of parents
with a dependent child working part-time has
increased by 30%. This contributes to over half
of all part-time self-employed people of working
more entrepreneurs without proper jobs. The
regime will be pleased.
