Welcome to our fresh new-look newsletter. Our monthly newsletter, previously Insider, was in need for a well-earned update, so we are delighted with this new look, whilst still providing valuable information for our readers.
We hope you’ll love the new designs as much as we do – keep an eye out for refreshed versions of the Budget report and other annual documents in the future!
This month we focus on the following topics:
UK ECONOMY RECOVERY SLOWS IN AUGUST – Britain’s economy partially recovered in August, with a marginal growth of 0.2% following a sharp fall in July.
INSOLVENCY UP BY 16.5% COMPARED TO LAST YEAR – The number of company insolvencies in September 2023 was 16.5% higher than the same month last year, according to official data published in October by the Insolvency Service.
INDUSTRY BACKLASH AT HS2 U-TURN – Leading business organisations have criticised the Government’s decision to scrap the northern leg of HS2, despite its promises to divert £36 billion into new transport in the Midlands and north of England.
TREASURY TASK FORCE DETAILS CARBON REPORTING RULES – A Treasury task force explained on the 9 October how listed companies and financial firms will have to outline plans to cut carbon emissions in the transition to a 2050 net-zero economy.
