Fellow Chartered Accountant and entrepreneur Renold Tang delivered yet another well-received seminar for the Small Business Clinic, titled: “Seminar Part 3 – Basic Business Taxes and Personal Taxes in the UK” (3rd December 2014). Sharing his knowledge and experience with students and staff at the University of Southampton, Renold discussed a range of critical tax issues for business owners: from ‘tax rates and schemes’ to ‘where to get advice on tax matters’.
With an overall rating of 84%, Seminar 3 was awarded high marks from the audience for ‘quality of advice’, ‘quality of service’, ‘treatment by staff’ and ‘information about service’. The lowest rated area was for ‘sufficient amount of time’, with most participants calling for a longer seminar. We are taking steps to meet this demand – for example, Renold have stayed on for an extra hour in Seminar 3; plus we will consider extending the length of future seminars. Other comments from the audience which we are looking into include: providing directions to the seminar room and providing notes for the seminar.
All in all, we are delighted that our 3-part seminar series have provided the audience with some basic yet powerful knowledge needed to starting a business. To the attendees, we thank you for coming and hope that you will spread the word about our service.
