No Accounting for Taste ep33: How to risk manage Brexit
The pod team welcomes Joe Gallard, former FD of Carwow and Gousto, for a look at an FD’s role in managing risk, especially as Brexit uncertainty clouds the economy.
But thankfully, it’s not all about Brexit. Gallard also gives his perspective on fundraising strategies. It’s a topic Gallard has lived through from his experience as an FD in a startup and in his current role as the co-founder of the cost management platform, Reducer. As part of this conversation, the team finds out more about the finance department’s role in fundraising efforts, how Gallard went about securing VC financing and much more.
Before that deep dive, we take a look at some tax-heavy headlines from the past week. The team review a rather complex accounting story involving Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, some essential reading from Neil Warren and the quirks of the flat rate scheme, and in what has become a heated topic on AccountingWEB, the controversial loan charge.
Regular host Tom Herbert has taken a well-earned break this week. Since Tom can’t be replaced by one person, your substitute pod hosts are Francois Badenhorst and Richard Hattersley (and a flock of seagulls).
This week's podcast was produced by Hannah Fullegar.
