Week in review: Friday 10th July 2015

Week in reviewThe office was closed today as we celebrated our 21st birthday with some local clients and professional contacts in Cranleigh.

After a far reaching and fairly radical Summer Budget on Wednesday, the Informed Choice team was glad of a break. We were blessed with great BBQ weather too.

This week we have been talking mostly about the emergency Budget.

There were also blogs about staying safe from scams and the things parents need to know about tax-free childcare.
