Lawyers in Wrexham have welcomed the Chancellor's changes to business rates announced in this week's Autumn Statement.
Solicitors at a leading North Wales and Shropshire law firm have expressed bitter disappointment that the Chancellor did not announce a reduction in Stamp Duty for homebuyers when he delivered his Autumn Statement today.
Q: I want to divorce my husband, move away and start a new life. The problem is that I am a partner in our business. Although I ceased to have an active role when I had our children I helped set the business up and worked hard in it for many years beforehand. Because of this I obviously want my share of the business assets, but I am concerned that taking them in the current financial climate will do neither the business, nor either of us, any favours. Is there a way I can go ahead with the divorce and still protect my interests in the business if I leave that side of things as they are for the time being?
