Social Housing Newsletter

Autumn 2013

Welcome to the Autumn edition of KPMG’s social housing newsletter.  Housing currently has a high political profile.  Government initiatives that make the front pages can also have a direct impact on finance teams.  We look at the tax considerations around Help to Buy and Affordable Rent to Buy, and explore some of the ways in which housing associations are managing welfare reform as well as sharing our insights on other hot sector issues facing finance teams.
