Present Number 4

Seminar before lunch (10am – 11.45am ) being hosted by LP Wealth Management & Octopus Investments.


During this seminar some of the strategies we will talk to you about could be beneficial if you have cash sat in your bank account or are keen to reduce your tax bill or you know others that do.

Topics that will be covered in the presentation:
  • Company directors extracting surplus cash from companies in a tax efficient manner
  • Deferring (and then eliminating) capital gains tax when selling an asset such as a buy to let property or share portfolio
  • How to become a “non-taxpayer” legitimately
  • Looking at possible alternatives to pensions
  • How to keep Inheritance Tax exemption when selling a business and also access and control over the capital
  • For those who have sold a business in the last 3yrs how they can regain their IHT exemption back again immediately and keep access to their capital
  •  IHT planning where the investment could become IHT exempt in as little as just two years and clients can maintain access and control of their money

Options like these are all available through government-backed initiatives such as Enterprise Investments Schemes (EIS), Venture Capital Trusts (VCT) and Business Property Relief (BPR). What’s more, the investment products involved are varied enough to suit a wide range of investors, from those seeking long-term growth to others who are more cautious and would rather focus on capital preservation.

Do you want to find out more – come along and hear Dominque Butters from Octopus Investments….and bring your questions.  Octopus Invetsments are AAA rated in the Citywire Service Index , 5* rated by the FT Adviser Online Service Awards 2012 and 5* rated by the FT Adviser Investment Awards (Providers & Packagers) 2012

Businesses that could and would benefit from networking

All business people are also consumers, they value expertise to allow them to focus on life and business – because no one knows everything and even if they do they do not have the time to do everything.  So looking through the list below – is there a service/expert/some leverage that would help you or someone you know?  Or do you know a business owner in one (or more) of the areas who you could introduce to networking?
