Financial News Update we 04/06/2010

Firstly I would like to spare a thought to all of those unfortunate people caught up in the violence in Cumbria this week. Life can really throw a curveball sometimes so, what ever it is you do, make it count!

Aside from the terrible events that have dominated the news over the last 36 hours or so, there have only been a few financial articles worth mentioning this week. 

An updated Trust tax pool calculator and a useful State Pension Forecast tool for those with some time to retirement feature this week.

Additionally, Capital Gains Tax rule changes look set to affect quite a few as there is certainly some concern over the proposed changes across the board – so the 22nd June will be eagerly awaited by many I would think?

Let me know if you have any questions and have a good weekend!
