Kent Business e-edition

In this month's Kent Business e-edition

Bosses at an accountancy firm were able to take a slice of £1.9 million from their share of its profits, after it upped revenues and its bottom line. Get the full round up of what happened in the Autumn Statement and how it affects Kent. A parts maker shows its metal as it sets out its growth plan despite falling revenues last year. Bosses at science estate Discovery Park say its new owners, who bought the site last month, are "honest property people" who will take it "in new areas". Campaigners fight to show a dementia diagnosis does not mean the end of a career. We examine why the buoyant commercial property market is not helping small businesses as much as it should be. Plus, check out the pictures of, quite possibly, the county's whackiest office.
