As Britain prepares for Brexit, what do investors need to be aware of ahead of the new tax year?

24th March 2017

April 6 marks the beginning of the 2017/18 tax year. With a raft of new tax measures coming into force, it is vital that British investors are aware of the upcoming reforms to ensure a tax-efficient investment strategy. IW Capital boasts a team of renowned financial strategy experts on hand to guide our investors through these new tax measures. You can contact a member of the IW Capital team here.

With IW Capital now providing debt-based investment opportunities to complement our equity offering, we are expanding our company portfolio so that our investors have access to SMEs across Britain’s leading regional hubs. We were pleased to announce this week that we have closed a £1.35m finance deal with Lancashire pub management group, Inglenook Inns & Taverns, to support its acquisition of 11 freehold and long-leasehold pubs across the North West.

The £1.35m finance deal will mean the company now boasts a portfolio of over 30 pubs in the region, furthering its strategy of acquiring well-established, free-of-tie pubs, while also offering its pub management services to pub brands including Punch, Greene King and Robinsons. Find out more about the deal here.

To champion the entrepreneurial talent on offer across the country, IW Capital has relaunched the SME Heatmap – incorporating the latest government announcements affecting scaling British businesses in key regional cities. This interactive infographic provides investors with the knowledge and tools necessary to support British scale-ups, and its release is timely given Theresa May’s intention to formally trigger Article 50 next Wednesday and initiate the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.

During the two-year negotiation period, investors and SMEs will be granted greater clarity surrounding the nature and terms of Brexit. To ensure our investors are informed on the key issues, next week IW Capital will be releasing a timely new report uncovering the impact of Brexit on the risk profile of UK investors ahead of the new tax year. Based on a survey of nearly 1,000 UK investors, this report will reveal which asset classes Britons are turning to in 2017.
