    Skilled jobs up for grabs as EU net migration to the UK plummets

    by John Dunn | Jun 23, 2017
    The UK has seen a dramatic fall in net migration between 2015 and 2016, mostly due to the number of EU citizens leaving the country after the Brexit referendum. These departing EU skilled workers are leaving spots open for skilled workers from other countries. If you’ve ever thought about immigrating to the UK, now could be the perfect time to do so.

    Who’s propping up the Rand?

    by Andrew Rissik | Jun 21, 2017
    July 2017 is upon us and so is radical economic transformation! Months after the cynical cabinet reshuffle, with Malusi Gigaba coming in as Finance Minister, and ratings downgrades from all three ratings agencies, with S&P and Fitch rating South Africa as sub-investment grade, the Rand seems to be holding up remarkably well. So, what’s going on?

    by Kobus Van den Bergh | Jun 08, 2017
    If you’re a contractor in the UK, or you’ve thought about becoming a contractor, you’ve probably heard of IR35.

    Applying for a UK visa? The UKVI won’t be taking your call anymore

    by John Dunn | May 31, 2017
    Getting hold of the UKVI can be difficult at times, especially when application volumes are high, like they are currently. To try to alleviate the pressure on their staff, the UKVI will be outsourcing all customer enquiries to a third party commercial partner, Sitel UK. The handover is happening on June 1, 2017, and will have a far-reaching and significant effect on all short- and long-term visa applications.

    Making cents of the Rand: Are we at the mercy of Jacob Zuma?

    by Andrew Rissik | May 26, 2017
    It’s been a while now since Pravin Gordhan was removed as Finance Minister, an event that triggered a series of downgrades by the international ratings agencies, Fitch and Stand & Poor, where our sovereign credit rating was relegated to sub investment grade or junk status.

    How Capital Gains Tax works in the UK

    by Scott Brown | May 23, 2017
    If you have assets in the UK and are looking to sell, or have sold them, you may have to pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT). Taxable assets can be anything from second properties to certain types of shares.

    How partners of Ancestry visa holders can fast track their British citizenship applications

    by John Dunn | May 19, 2017
    It’s true – you can move to the UK with your partner if they hold a valid Ancestry visa. Many UK Ancestry visa holders don’t realise this, which is a shame because it is one of the best ways to live in the UK while you work towards full British citizenship.

    Are you a payroll provider? How are you dealing with the issue of auto enrolment?

    by Bill Monty | May 17, 2017
    As a payroll provider, it can be tricky trying to ensure that your clients’ employees receive the optimal pensions outcomes from auto enrolment. It’s not your job to know the ins and outs of complex pension funds and how they affect the retirement plans of those employees enrolled in those schemes.
