Welcome to the Spring edition of KPMG's Social Housing Newsletter. With the NHF Finance Conference around the corner, we explore some of the issues that finance teams should be thinking about. Click on the titles below to access the full articles.
It is important that payroll processes are sufficiently robust to ensure that accurate information is submitted to HMRC on time.
The challenges remain for employers and there is a growing need to be pro-active in order to offer fair and sustainable benefits which are appreciated by employees.
We look at some of the challenges associated with successful implementation of the CSE.
The government is encouraging businesses and home-owners to use energy saving technologies in their properties. How does this apply to RPs?
There is increasing government and media scrutiny of the tax transparency of businesses and it is only a matter of time before the debate extends beyond the private sector.
We say providers need to focus more on demonstrating the social value generated by their "core" business, providing homes for people, and less on that from their wider social programmes. Do you agree? Have your say.
The implementation date sounds like a long way off, but it needs thinking about soon rather than later. The impact will be much wider than accounting changes.
Members of KPMG's housing team are speaking at a number of conference sessions, as well as the Budget Breakfast on Thursday 21st March – our speaking slots are listed here. You can also find us at Stand 5 in the exhibition area. We look forward to seeing you there.
I hope you find this useful. Do please contact me of one of the team for help or advice on any of these matters.
