    Avoidance of insurance equals risk of money laundering report and breach of fiduciary duty

    16 Sep 2017

    New studies reveal that 60% of start-ups founded in the past three year haven’t taken out insurance of any kind. New businesses were said to ‘underappreciate risk’ with 72% saying they were too small to need insurance, whilst 25% didn’t consider it at all. Licensed IP, Clive Everitt commented; “Given that it’s a legal requirement to have certain elements of insurance in place, accountants may consider this to be money laundering or proceeds of crime reporting issue. Furthermore, if an insolvency were to take place due to a lack of insurance, it would be considered a breach of fiduciary and could lead to personal liability for the directors. In reality, insurance should be taken out to protect against unforeseen risks and business owners should ask themselves “can I afford the consequences of not covering against those risks?”

Or perhaps the cynic would say they do – helping a ‘buddy’ now in the hope of a good trade deal in the future?

    22 Aug 2017

    Large contractors are said to be putting smaller construction firms under financial pressure by withholding payments. The reason being that large firms themselves are dealing with cashflow issues due to stalled projects post-Brexit and a lack of traditional funding systems. The Times recently reported that smaller firms are consequently putting 27% more of their own money into their firms than they were three years ago.

    Banks exodus hurting high street businesses

    21 Aug 2017

    Banks are closing up to ten high street branches a week and are moving online instead. The decrease in highstreet branches is having a direct impact on consumer footfall in town centres and will therefore affect the overall health of the high street.
