But you haven't got much time...

Here it is.
And here's an episode of this podcast in which Mark explains more on what the book is about!
Ok great. Back to the episode...
In this episode, Mark from m3 Networks will explain how super deduction works.
In a nutshell, it's a way of leveraging capital gains tax relief on any new equipment you buy for your office as part of your operations.
Here's the link Mark suggested you to read during the episode:
"So if you want new computers in the next few months, we recommend that you act quickly on this.
Because supplies of hardware are still disrupted through the pandemic, it's still difficult to get hold of certain types of equipment or specifications of certain types of equipment, so you really should think ahead about what new hardware your business could need in the next few years. The biggest investment right now I can think of is that I know there's a lot of businesses out there still running Windows Server 2012 servers, which is due to expire in October next year, or not expired. It's not just going to stop working or busting the flames one day, but Windows Server 2012 is going to stop receiving security updates from next year, so no longer be supported.
So if you're a business that has Cyber Essentials, that will put you out of spec with the Cyber Essentials standard because you'll be using an operating system that's no longer receiving software updates or security updates from the manufacturer.
So replacing the server is quite a significant investment. You probably remember back to five, six, maybe even seven years ago when you last replaced your server.
It's quite a significant cost. So this is something that you can probably bring ahead a little bit and get ahead of all the other businesses that are going to be scrambling to buy servers come October next year."
