@flashyandflawless: “Amen. Too many ‘experts!’ It used to be that you had to have at least a recognised diploma in facial manual/electrical coupled with at least five years of experience hands-on. It’s the type of people who can’t afford a broad spectrum mineral (zinc oxide) based SPF, but will go out and spend fifty quid on a meal out. The math just ain’t mathing but it is our job to educate them! #informedchoice always.”

Spring Budget 2024: what it means for the beauty industry

@polishedmarske: “Nothing to help those labourintensive businesses that are just over the threshold. The flat rate is extortionate when most of our profits go on wages; this should be reduced! In Holland it’s 6% it doesn’t pay or incentivise businesses to grow which would in turn contribute to economic growth ”

@dotty_43_: “Self-employed NI was due to fall to 8% from 10% and now there and extra 2% it will go to 6%…… So for every 10k you earn over the personal allowance of 12.5k you stand to save at least £200 per year. So overall you’ve a reduction of 4% per year in NI. Still not great but hope that helped. ”
