The Journey Of An Immigrant Entrepreneur To Transforming Communities
In this weeks post, we looked deeper into immigration law and the impacts of employing immigrants and while doing the research, we came across the success story of Melody Hossaini, who first set up her global social enterprise business in Leicester in 2009, after moving to the UK at the age of 13. Melody set up the social enterprise InspirEngage International, with just a hotmail e-mail account and no money and she is now an influential woman entrepreneur. You can get inspired by her story by watching her talk at TEDxKLWomen 2013.
The New Governmental Direction On Big Business Tax Planning
The government announced that it wants big companies based in the UK to sign a voluntary code of conduct for following the spirit and letter of law and start publishing their annual tax strategy. Big businesses would have to agree to renounce aggressive tax planning, says HMRC, and would also be obliged to publish an annual tax strategy, signed off by a named executive at board level, under new rules proposed by HM Revenue and Customs. It is expected that the government will take similar steps to discourage aggressive tax planning by wealthy individuals and their advisers as well.
