Salisburys are Proud sponsors of the VCCFL!

We are delighted to inform you that we are now the proud sponsors of the Vale Of Clwyd and Conwy Football League! We have previously sponsored the League’s President’s Cup but upon negotiations with this organization’s executive committee, we have the honour of sponsoring the entire league, which has been a proud staple of North Walian football since 1973! The Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League is very relevant to Welsh football, especially within North Wales. Its boundaries stretch all of the way through North Wales, eastward along the coastline, as far as the English border at Chester – covering Flintshire in its entirety, parts of Denbighshire, and some areas within Conwy. The League itself came into formation when two local area leagues, the Dyserth and Halkyn Mountain Leagues, formed. Originally consisting of a whopping five divisions, the formation of the Cymru Alliance league (later becoming the League of Wales, and then changing name again to the Welsh Premier League we know today) meant that the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy Football League shrunk to a far more manageable three divisions. The Vale of Clwyd and Conwy Football League is formed of two tables, the first being the Premier Division, which has teams such as Llandudno Albion, Llannefydd, Llansannan, Machno United, Old Colwyn, Rhos United, Rhyl Athletic, Rhyl Rovers, Rhyl Town AFC, and Trefnant FC. Division One features Abergele FC, Betws-y-Coed, Bro Cernyw, Cerrigydrudion, Llandudno Athletic, Llanfairfechan Town, Llysfaen, Y Glannau, the Rhos United Reserves, as well as the Colwyn Bay Youths.     These teams all have their eyes firmly set on three cups the league awards: The Premier...
Brexit: How could the vote affect you and your business?

Brexit: How could the vote affect you and your business?

Following the UK’s historic decision to leave the European Union, many are wondering how the Brexit vote will affect their business and their personal finances. Despite a current climate of uncertainty, the UK economy nevertheless remains strong and the result of the referendum will not have an immediate impact on any tax and business legislation. HMRevenue customs have already issued a statement to ‘carry on as normal’ There are no changes to any taxes, tax credits, child benefits or other HMRC services as a result of the vote on the EU referendum. Everything is continuing as normal. No laws have changed. There is no need to contact HMRC as a result of the EU referendum. However, significant changes are likely to come into effect in the future. A number of significant opportunities could also arise as a result of the referendum. Taxation The current Corporation Tax rate of 20% is already scheduled to reduce to 19% from April 2017, with a further reduction to 17% by April 2020. However, the Chancellor has pledged to cut this even further, to 15%. Calls are also being made to reduce rates of income tax, to reinforce the UK’s attraction to businesses and enterprise. We wait with anticipation for the Autumn statement, or news of any emergency budget in the interim. State Aid The EU state aid rules restrict the way in many reliefs can offer assistance to growing businesses, such as EIS, research and development and patent box reliefs. Removing the restriction of EU legislation may allow enhancement of these reliefs for SMEs. Infrastructure The period of uncertainty means that some will...
Ride The Dragon

Ride The Dragon

Salisburys Chartered Accountants & Business Advisors sponsored our friends at the Lon Las Loonies to slay their own dragons by participating in the yearly Dragon Ride, and they’ve done the region proud! The Lon Las Loonies are a cycling club based in North Wales who profess to put the “fun” into fundraising, and it was our pleasure to assist their fundraising efforts by providing them with new kit, including matching T-shirts. As one of the most iconic sportives in the UK, The Dragon Ride is in proud partnership with L’Etape Wales. It returned for its 13th year in 2016, and was selected by ASO as the most perfect representation of the world’s most famous cycling event the Tour de France. The Dragon Ride is said to offer the same inspiring Tour de France riding experience to UK cyclists, with a start in South Wales, that spans famous climbs including Rhigos, Black Mountain and the Devil’s Elbow – which is noted to have the addition of the “Devil’s Staircase”, a climb with a 15% gradient and an elevation of 480m. On the Dragon Ride, the Lon Las Loonies managed to complete an incredible 350 miles of cycling in only three and a half days, but that’s not all. Additionally, the Lon Las Loonies completed a vast amount of climbing, clocking in 20,000 feet. Additionally, we’re very proud to say that their 24 intrepid riders, 6 support staff and 3 motorcycle outriders managed to raise an incredible £12,000 online for a very good local cause, St. Kentigern’s Hospice. Their total is due to be unveiled on the 3rd of September within the...
Our Client, Llandudno FC Are Going To Europe!

Our Client, Llandudno FC Are Going To Europe!

Our client, MBi Llandudno FC managed to qualify for the UEFA Europa League after TNS defeated Airbus US in the FAW Welsh Cup Final. Following Airbus’ losing heartache, the 3rd spot in the league (occupied by MBi Llandudno FC) became automatic qualification for the Europa League.  This is gigantic for a lot of reasons. Previously known as the UEFA Cup, the Europa League has been running since 1971, and is an annual football club association competition organized by UEFA for eligible European football clubs. Clubs qualify for the competition based on their performance in their respective national leagues and cup competitions. Llandudno’s fantastic first season in the top Welsh league ensured their eligibility for the UEFA Europa League, and if they are to then win the UEFA Europa League, they are guaranteed a ticket to the UEFA Champion’s League play-offs. Whatever happens, Llandudno stand to gain in a financial sense from participation as well, earning €200,000 (approximately £157,600) just for making the preliminary stages of the UEFA Europa League. MBi Llandudno FC are in the first round of qualifiers, which will be drawn in Geneva on Monday the 20th of June, with the tie to be played out on Thursday 30th June and Thursday the 7th of July. Not entertaining the thought of sitting back and twiddling their thumbs until the tie, Llandudno recently announced their preparations starting with the announcement of a pre-season friendly against Irish team Glenavon FC who, similarly, finished third in their respective league to qualify for the UEFA Europa League. The commitment and dedication of the team to make it to what many consider...
