Inventing our way out of the pandemic

Here’s another in our continuing series of ‘reasons for business owners to be cheerful’, based around a seminar session delivered to The FD Centre by respected UK behavioural economist Roger Martin-Fagg.

Necessity. It’s the Mother of Invention, as we know. When the going gets tough, we all know how that phrase ends. But it is an undeniable fact that while innovation in general can happen at more or less any time, it’s when our backs are against the wall that we see these innovations actually put to valuable use.

The Chancellor has delivered some targeted new tax increases and tax reliefs as he attempts to help struggling sectors whilst stabilising the national debt.

However, the corporation tax rate will be increased to 25% from April 2023.
