Welcome to the November 2023 edition of The Quintessential Brief.

As we approach the end of yet another year, it is a great opportunity to take stock of all that has happened this year, and look forward to where we expect things will go next.

Mixed Landscape: Financial Challenges & New Opportunities

While the days of COVID lockdowns and business shutdowns may behind us, unfortunately our economy is still struggling to recover. This presents itself in many different ways, with the increased cost of living, business pressures and a overall sense of cautiousness across the majority of business and individual dealings.

Such challenging conditions inform the types of matters that we have found ourselves dealing with in the past 12 months. As financial pressures mount, property and business sales rise too, and so we have seen first-hand the need for more complex tax and financial advice, including capital gains tax matters in particular.

Any kind of financial pressure can create tension. And so businesses, and their directors, are finding themselves in unsettling and disagreeable situations giving rise to an increase director dispute advice and resolution.

On the other side of the ledger, a downturn in the economy also creates opportunities for those that may be in a position to acquire new assets, whether that be property or businesses. An integral part of the business acquisition process is due diligence. Now, perhaps more than ever, it is imperative to undertake meticulous due diligence prior to entering into a business acquisition so that you can be assured that you are making a well informed decision.
