All change in 2019?

Looking at what might happen next year in our sector presents some challenges with Brexit on the horizon.

Do any of us really have the faintest clue as to where our businesses will be this time next year? For what it’s worth, I think we will all do what we are best at, for example, getting on with the job in hand and ignoring distractions when we cannot possibly affect the outcome.

For all we know, a deal was agreed months ago and all the manoeuvring we are seeing is for our benefit and to massage the egos of the politicians. I wouldn’t bet against it. Let’s hope we are sitting behind our PCs this time next year reading articles referencing what a great year it has been after a decent exit from the EU.

For our part, we are anticipating more competition from new entrants into the sector and planning new product launches. Competition is good and will always serve to raise general awareness of the funding that is available in respect of the VAT element when making commercial property purchases.

We are thinking long term and trying to anticipate what the market will require and how best to get our message out there when we are operating in a more crowded sector of the market. We think we have some good ideas, but we all know we must be conscious of and able to manage risk as new forms of funding always throw up unexpected issues.

This is one of the reasons we are adding to our team and bringing in the skills required to manage the challenges ahead. We recognise that we need to invest in good people to grow our business.

In closing, thanks to everyone that has contributed to our success this year and we look forward to working with you in 2019.
