Smart Money Newsletter: January / February 2023

With the current tax year having begun on 6 April 2022, the clock is ticking and it is important to utilise all the tax reliefs and allowances available to you before 5 April 2023. Time is also running out to take advantage of this year’s Individual Savings Account (ISA) allowances.

Our first Smart Money newsletter of 2023 looks at all of this and more including how inflation is affecting retirement plans, why many millennials are willing to forgo inheritance and whether it’s time for a tax health check.
