For Attending The Greenwich Business Update 2017

Finsbury Robinson would like to thank all business owners who attended the inaugural Greenwich Business Update Event on 23rd November at Charlton Football Club. We are grateful that so many of you took the time to come along to listen and we hope that you took away some invaluable information from it.

The event was a huge success covering a whole host of topics including digitalisation, accounting, taxation, Employment, Health & Safety and Data Protection. We hope that attendees found the event informative especially on topics such as GDPR which highlighted the major changes that will be coming into effect from May 2018. 

The feedback has been excellent and has led us to decide to host The Greenwich Business Update 2018. We aim to grow these updates to be bigger and better than its predecessors and have taken onboard suggestions from the attendees.

Many thanks to all our guest speakers, their contribution was invaluable and very appreciated by the attendees.

Please get in touch if you would like more information on any of the topics from the event or would like to be put in contact with any of the guest speakers or organisations.

Look out for us next year!

There are a number of crucial changes coming up in the business and accounting world such as GDPR, Making Tax Digital or issues with Worker Status and Contracts. As fellow local business owners we want to make you aware of these as soon as possible. Some of these changes will have a direct impact on all of our businesses.  

Finsbury Robinson have teamed up with HR & Employment Law experts Peninsula and with Tesla to create a free business seminar exclusively for Greenwich based business owners to help them keep compliant and ahead of their competition.

The talks, delivered by keynote speakers, cover all the major issues facing businesses in the up and coming year. This is your chance to find out everything that may affect your business in one event.
