Invitations are going out this week for our presentation in York on the Sentencing Guidelines. These came in last year and are now being used by the courts to determine the financial penalty imposed on construction businesses found guilty in court. We will take attendees through the criteria used by the courts in order to decide the penalty, and also advise on what contractors need to do to avoid fines that could potentially close their business down. The key point is that fines are based on turnover not profit. Given the low margins that contractors often experience it is essential that they have knowledge of these guidelines. Please let us know if you wish to attend on the 4th July.
