Brexit Looms

As Brexit staggers ever closer, banks forecast the worst year for business since 2009, what are your thoughts about the state of the economy?

It’s a tough world for business right now…what with Brexit, Pensions, GDPR, NMW, 2020 and plenty more.  Increased taxes, levies and regulation and an increasing US style litigious culture all seem to be against providing employment and making a profit.  LIS can sort out the 2020 problem for you but for the rest we, like you, are looking for the missing paddle! If you think a more efficient IT system might help, contact LIS or if you prefer book a phone meeting to discuss the options.

Can we show you what you’re already paying for, but maybe not using yet?  Contact LIS to make the most of your existing resources.

LIS has an apprentice and we think he is great! When you call us, ask for Louis and you will get really good service! But then you will get that from the rest of the team too…
