Weekly Round-Up – Friday 20th January 2017

Informed Choice Weekly RoundupHappy Friday, readers! It’s time to catch up.

Here are some of the things that we covered at Informed Choice this week.

On the blog this week

This week we have seen the Treasury Committee publish its report on Making Tax Digital (MTD). What did they recommend?

One of the costs we face as a regulated business is funding the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). This week we have heard that the FSCS wants another big levy from advisers.

Price inflation in the UK has risen sharply as the fall in Sterling starts to be felt. Rising inflation could also have an impact on retirement incomes.

The latest podcast episodes

It’s been a big week for the Brexit process, with a major speech from Theresa May. Martin spoke to author Daniel Hannan MEP about why the Prime Minister would be crazy to share her negotiating strategy.

Professor Tim Jackson is author of the landmark text Prosperity without Growth. Martin spoke to Tim about the dilemma of economic growth and some alternative measures of success to consider.

Informed Choice in the press

Re-imagining the Laws of England Tour – Celebrating Magna Carta

Informed Choice is pleased to sponsor a private view of an important exhibition at Cranleigh Arts Centre on Wednesday 15th February. Artists from across the UK participated in a celebration of the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta.

They transformed a volume of `Halsbury’s Statutes`, transforming each into a work of art exploring themes related to topics covered in the particular volume as well as ideas around legislation and society.
