The Budget. Seven shades of shitty news. VAT has increased. Who could have predicted that? Apart from everyone. The umbrella sector already faces an irrecoverable VAT bill on the non-business use of gamps of £1.3bn or £0.5bn depending on who you listen to. This rise will hit us hard.
And there is going to be further pain to come. Therefore BUBB is launching Cuts Watch, a microsite devoted to keeping tabs on hairstyles in the sector (eh, Hubert?). For all the latest barnet-related gossip, it's the place to go.
