    The Oxford City East group is a dynamic and vibrant group where you can be assured of excellent business connections, meet local business women and step out of the isolation so many female entrepreneurs can feel. This group is particularly ideal for those who live within the Oxfordshire postcodes so you can be build a local Oxfordshire business community as well as a regional and national network. If you do not live within this area, you are still welcome to attend, let’s have a conversation and find the best group for you and your networking requirements.

    The Oxford City East members pride themselves on the strategic connections that they have created, collaborating with each other to create new projects and services.

    🔑 Ready to unlock the secrets to financial success?

    How many of us shy away from completing their tax returns, fearing the complexity or uncertainty surrounding our financial situation?

     Alice Hillier, an Oxford City east Group Member and a Director from the Bicester based accountancy firm, Sadler Talbot, will be delivering the Business Development Training session as part of our meeting this month.

    Alice is a member of the ACCA and CIOT. Her clients are predominantly owner managed businesses ranging from start ups to established companies in a broad spectrum of sectors and she has a wealth of experience to share.

    You will gain access to invaluable insights into proactive tax planning. In business, knowledge is power, especially when it comes to your financial figures.

    Embracing early tax return completion, you’re not just meeting a legal requirement – you’re equipping yourself with the crucial data needed to make informed, strategic decisions for your business. By staying on top of your accounts and giving yourself ample time to complete your tax return, you gain a clear understanding of your financial position, cash flow, and potential tax liabilities. This knowledge empowers you to identify areas for improvement, seize opportunities, and mitigate risks effectively.

    Don’t let fear hold you back from financial success! Alice will be sharing some simple ways to help you embrace keeping your accounts up to date, completing your Tax return in plenty of time and overcome any fears or anxieties you may have around this.
