Hello and welcome to Finance Monthly’s September 2018 edition!
With a series of high-profile collapses and CVAs, including the recent turbulences that House of Fraser is faced with, Britain has seen its fair share of high-street horror stories in 2018. In an attempt to help the struggling traditional trade, earlier this month Chancellor Philip Hammond announced that he is considering a special retail tax on online business, dubbed the ‘Amazon tax’, which will aim to establish a “level-playing field” for online retailers and high-street shops. Finance Monthly delves into the potential impact of an ‘Amazon tax’ and the alternative solutions that can save British bricks-and-mortar retailers.
We also take a look at the development of artificial intelligence in the workplace and why we need to be more enthusiastic about it than we are.
These are but a few of the features of this month’s magazine. I hope you enjoy reading Finance Monthly’s September edition!
