A BUSINESS seminar which looks at tax and employment law is less than three weeks away in Hartlepool.

Organisers have urged town entrepreneurs to come along but they had a message for bosses: “Book your places now because spaces are limited”.

Hartlepool College of Further Education will be the venue for the event to be held on Tuesday, September 30, from 4pm.

It will last for two hours and will have a theme of avoiding the expensive hurdles in business.

Experts from chartered accountants Waltons Clark Whitehill, and solicitors Tilly Bailey and Irvine have teamed up with the Hartlepool Business Forum to deliver the free seminar.

Tax experts Sharon Adams and George Hardey will be providing valuable tax saving advice and Theresa Carling, a specialist in employment law, will provide tips on employment law issues facing businesses.

Waltons Clark Whitehill director Graeme Surtees said: “There are a limited number of places available for this event and booking is essential”.

David Laud, from Tilly Bailer and Irvine said this was a chance to learn very useful tips on how to avoid potential costs to your business and how to manage your tax and staff performance effectively.

He said the seminar was aimed at business owners, directors, managers and supervisors.

Mr Laud added the event was ideal for local businesses.

Forum co-ordinator Andrew Steel previously told the Hartlepool Mail that it would be people who owned their own firm as well as managers and supervisors who would be most suitable to come along.

The event will start with registration, tea and coffee at 4pm before a talk on topical tax tips which will be given by tax partner Sharon Adams and senior tax manager George Hardy from Waltons Clark Whitehill.

After a break which will take place at 5pm, Theresa will give a talk on the subject of “Ten Ways to end up at a Tribunal (and tips to avoid it)”.
