Welcome to our website which we have deliberately kept clear and simple. Like our advice, it is practical and easy to use. But we hope it gives you a flavour of what we do and tempts you to find out more.

I blog regularly on issues that affect entrepreneurial businesses which are close to my heart. I’m an all-round business advisor, and tax specialist. There’s always lots going on in the tax world and I will share some of my thoughts with you. As always, I welcome your comments and feedback.

Life is tough for the entrepreneur and private businesses in general. Despite claims to the contrary, banks are more or less closed for business. Other traditional sources of funding are few and far between. Early-stage businesses need to have an exceptional idea to secure funding. More established businesses need to fund expansion out of profits.

In our profession there’s been consolidation and there will continue to be so. The largest firms are moving back into the world of management consulting (funny how things come round in circles) and other top firms are squeezing the big boys at the edges. One thing doesn’t change though – most decisions are driven by short-term profit needs; I should know, I’ve been there and got the tee-shirt. That’s why it’s so exciting and refreshing to have established Jupp Consulting and be completely independent. We can really put our clients’ needs first, provide a cost-efficient and proactive service, and celebrate with you when your success brings us success.

Put simply, it means the movement in recent years by the courts to look at the purposes behind a transaction or series of transactions rather than simply look at…

Muddled thinking…. 150 150 AJ

HMRC has recently announced a “name and shame” policy for the top 20 or so promoters of aggressive tax avoidance schemes. From what we can tell, HMRC believes that despite all the recent changes and clampdown on tax avoidance, some promoters are still selling schemes that effectively only work by limiting the information available or the disclosure of key elements of the planning. I am…

Hello and welcome Welcome to my new website and first blog. This is an exciting time for me. Having made the decision earlier this year to set up my own consulting practice I’ve finally found time to get the website up and running. I guess I should be pleased that I’m so busy – you suddenly realise that you have to do everything yourself. There’s…
