The answer is both. Have you ever heard the expression "too many generals and not enough soldiers"? Well it works both ways. Too many soldiers without a strong general will surely find themselves fighting the wrong battles.

Experience has shown us that businesses with too many leaders fail from their inability to manage and implement day-to-day business issues. Likewise companies with excellent managers fail because they did not innovate, motivate change nor watch for strategic threats.

The Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) allows businesses to write off 100% of the cost of qualifying plant and equipment, up to the allowed maximum, against taxable profits. It can be claimed by an individual, partnership or company carrying on a trade, profession or vocation, a UK non-residential property business or a furnished holiday let. Only partnerships or trusts with a mixture of individuals and companies in the business structure are unable to claim the AIA.

Businesses can currently write off 100% of the cost of acquiring qualifying assets against their taxable profits, up to an annual limit of £500,000. The increase (from £250,000) came into effect from 1 April 2014 for companies and from 6 April 2014 for unincorporated businesses. From 31 December 2015 the limit will revert to its original amount of £25,000.

 As we continue into 2014, many businesses and their teams are taking a step back, looking at the business, considering how the market will develop over the next 12 months and creating plans to grow the firm and take advantage of changes in the business environment.

A typical approach to planning suggests multiplying last year's financial results by an acceptable growth factor. Industry standards vary, often from 5% to 25%. Add to that number any enhancements to your product or service lines plus solutions to key problems you've been meaning to address, and that will essentially give you an outline of a business plan.

Due to the turbulence of the current economy, businesses today are having to adapt to constant market shifts. The businesses that adapt best to this “new normal” will thrive as the market improves over the coming years.

Every market changes, but some change faster than others. For example, the iron ore industry moves much slower than the high tech or publishing industry. Established franchises can disappear if they fail to see, accept and respond to market changes. Microsoft were slow to respond to the rise of tablet computing, and cannot compete on price in the cloud sector of the market. Many magazines have been slow to respond to the web and the growing popularity of tablets such as the iPad. However it is interesting that most major IT and technology magazines went 100% digital well ahead of other titles.

This is an important reminder for overseas businesses that sell goods or services in the UK. The VAT registration rules changed for overseas businesses on 1 December 2012. The new rules removed the VAT registration limit (currently £79,000) from businesses which are defined as 'non-established taxable persons'. This means that overseas businesses that make taxable supplies of goods or services to the UK must register and account for VAT in the UK regardless of their level of sales.

This change particularly affects non-established businesses making one-off supplies of goods in the UK. Overseas businesses that make taxable supplies over the annual VAT registration limit should already be registered for VAT in the UK.
