Merry Christmas!

From all at Less Tax 4 Landlords

Welcome to our final and festive newsletter of 2020.

It was the year we stayed home – the year no one could have ever predicted.

And we were reminded once again that for businesses, including property businesses – cash is king – and to remain competitive we need to be flexible and act fast, stay focussed on our top priorities, explore all possible solutions, and perhaps most importantly – keep connected with each other.

We hope our efforts to keep everyone informed in a safe manner, through online consultations, the launch of our Video Vault, our Live Webinars, our LT4L News and Blogs were helpful.

We’ll now be taking a little break over the holiday season and our Horsham & London offices will be closed from 12:00pm today Wednesday 23rd December, reopening at 9am Monday 4th January.

During this time we will be prioritising ongoing client work only, though do feel free to write to with any queries as they come to you and we’ll be in touch in the New Year if not before.

Lastly please allow us to take this opportunity to thank you for being a valued LT4L News subscriber in what has been an unprecedented year, and to wish you and yours all the best for the holiday season and a very happy new year.

Hopefully, you’ll find a moment to relax yourself and have a quick read of our new LT4L email newsletter below.
