Brexit or Remain: What will the tax impact be, and what should be on your ‘To Do’ list in the event of a Leave vote?
From bunches of bananas to the wattage of your kettle, from the threat of an Emergency Budget to the waging of a naval battle on the Thames, this EU Referendum campaign has certainly had its share of headlines. Now we are at last in the final stretch and this time next week the result should be known. But what will the tax impact be, and what should be on your ‘To Do’ list in the event of a Leave vote?
