Budget Breakfast For Preston Businesses

7 April 2015


haleys once again played an important role in the latest Hoppers Business Networking event that focused on the impact of the 2015 Budget just two days after it was announced by Chancellor George Osborne.

Following on from a short presentation on the pensions reform by Michael Bailey from Bailey Financial Services, haleys Director Michael Lucas spoke about how the new Budget and the General Election will impact on businesses, individuals, savers and pensioners.

He outlined important facts and figures from the announcement including the effects on the proposed tax rates and allowances on profit extraction from businesses and the gradual rise in the company car and van benefit from now until 2019. Michael's full presentation can be found on the link below.

The Budget Breakfast marked the third Hoppers Business Network event of 2015 following meet-ups in both January and February and it was again in good attendance with fifty businesses from the local area all making the most of the opportunity to network.

Consistent high attendances remain good news for the local exposure of Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Club which plays host to the networking events thanks to its ideal location just a short drive from the M6 motorway.

Many local business owners also take advantage of hospitality packages on match days to entertain clients and there’s even the opportunity to tie this in with being an official match day sponsor. Some businesses also regularly use the Hoppers’ conference room facilities for business meetings.

haleys is a founding member of the Hoppers Business Network, recognising the importance of establishing a network system that can really benefit client business activity and it has so far proved highly successful.
