The Accountant's Guide to Election 2019

Brought to you by

With the general election 2019 campaign coming to its conclusion on 12 December, AccountingWEB has trawled through each of the major parties' election manifestos to find the pledges and policies that matter most to accountants.

In this six-part guide, we look at the manifestos for the Conservative Party, the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and the SNP. We also examine the Brexit Party's 'contract with the people'.

We drill down into individual proposals for the tax system, implications for local government, proposed reviews of MTD and IR35, the inevitable repercussions of Brexit and more. 

Each political party has far-reaching and unsurprisingly unique plans - but beyond the sloganeering, what do they mean for accountants? We hope this guide helps to start to answer that question.

As well as detailed analysis from AccountingWEB tax expert Philip Fisher, each chapter features comments from AccountingWEB community members, with quick links to all the individual web articles where you can go to contribute to the debate.

Download this guide, pour over the detail, join in the discussion and we'll see you on Friday the 13th…
