The new construction industry tax deduction scheme

It has been a busy year for the construction industry with generally excellent order books and good profit figures. However, the colder winds blowing through the global (and possibly UK) economy are unlikely to leave the construction industry unscathed. If the road ahead does become more rocky it becomes even more important for you to keep up to date with current legal issues affecting the sector.

We, therefore, have produced the Autumn Construction Update which we hope you will find to be an interesting and practical mix of issues affecting those in construction.
