  • How to get formidable sales momentum in 2018

    No doubt you’ve already dived into 2018 full of vigour and enthusiasm for a fresh year of successes, challenges and victories. And you’ve got a sales target to hit or beat. But what will happen in 3 months’ time? 6 months’ time? If we’re honest keeping up the momentum on sales is tough, and doesn’t just happen. It’s so easy to give up – it’s our greatest weakness! But when it comes to sales targets, there’s no way anyone can afford to give up in 2018. With the shifts and challenges we’re seeing in the business environment, we can see that keeping up momentum on sales is going be more essential than ever in 2018!

  • 2017 a challenge? 1 way to make 2018 a success

    The key to success in 2018 can be summed up in one word: focus. It can so easily feel that somehow if we try and do something with lots of opportunities, one or two of them will work out, and we’ll get some good results. But we see time after time it doesn’t work. Time is limited. Money is limited (normally!) Your energy and the energy of your team isn’t infinite. So how do we achieve a laser like focus in 2018?

The announcements in the Budget 2014 included an announcement that from 1 July 2014, ISAs (Individual Savings Account) will be reformed into the 'New ISA' (NISA).  From 1 July 2014, the NISA limit will be £15,000, which represents the biggest ever increase in ISA limits.

What is an ISA?

An ISA (short for Individual Savings Account) is a type of savings account.  If you save in an ISA, you are entitled to keep all that you receive from that investment and not pay any tax on it.  This is not the case with an ordinary bank or building society account, unless you are a non-taxpayer.  You pay no tax on any interest or other income you receive from your ISA savings and investments.  There are limits to the amount you can invest in an ISA per tax year, and these are set to increase significantly as from 1 July 2014.

New ISA limit

As from 1 July 2014, your existing ISA will automatically become a NISA, with an overall NISA limit of £15,000, and will offer you an option to either save your whole allowance of £15,000 in cash, stocks and shares, or any combination of the two.  This means that from 1 July you could invest £15,000 into a cash NISA, and nothing in a Stocks and Shares NISA.

Make sure you take advantage of your new tax free savings limits.

If you have any questions about your NISA limits, please don't hesitate to contact us.
