Schools Briefing, ISBA Special Edition

19th May 2017

Welcome to this ISBA Conference edition of the haysmacintyre Schools Briefing.

2017/18 budgets have been approved, fee increases have been communicated to parents and it is the lull before the year end storm.

For this conference edition we have put together a selection of articles that we hope you will find interesting and thought provoking.

Our legal article has been provided by Paul Jones, a partner in Farrer & Co LLP, and gives the headline issues that any school should consider when embanking upon an overseas project.

Anil Ahluwalia, Education Specialist in Lloyds Bank, highlights current fraud scams targeting schools as well as sharing best practice ideas to help minimise fraud.

Our tax team have provided updates on the employment tax changes you need to be aware of, the VAT implications of making tax digital and maximising gift aid opportunities.

Finally, Tracey Young and David Sewell share the findings of our School Management Survey and key messages from our annual Schools Conference respectively.

I hope you enjoy this edition. We value your feedback and suggestions for the future. As advisers to you and the sector it is important that we continue to challenge and support you.
