Swindon & Wiltshire Business News
Nearly every home and business in Swindon will gain access to next-generation broadband thanks to a major investment by CityFibre, the UK’s third national digital infrastructure platform.
The town is to benefit from an investment of £40m in its digital future, as part of CityFibre’s plans to replace the nation’s legacy networks with gigabit-capable full fibre connectivity.
If you purchase a residential property between now and 31 March 2021, you only start to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on the amount that you pay for the property above £500,000.
These rates apply whether you are buying your first home or have owned property before, but it does have to be your only property at that time.
The importer of SUVs from Korea's oldest motor manufacturer is moving its base from Luton to Swindon's Europa Business Park.
SsangYong Motors UK says the new head office will provide it with a modern and flexible working environment with sufficient parking for employees and visitors and the capacity to operate its national next day parts supply service to its franchised dealers.
Swindon's two further education establishments have merged – almost a year after they confirmed they would – pushing ahead plans for Swindon's Institute of Technology.

A group of Swindon business buddies - and one from 10,519 miles away in Port Campbell, Australia - have covered nearly 5,000 kilometres to fundraise in memory of baby Oscar Paul who passed away ten years ago.
They all joined Oscar’s dad Karl in a sponsored running challenge throughout July. Karl and his wife Charlotte had planned to raise £10,000 for charity during 2020 – to mark what would have been Oscar’s tenth birthday.
