Tax news 2020 - March issue

  • When is there a ‘transaction in securities’? 

    Alan Pink considers the meaning of the vague term ‘transactions in securities’, which is crucial for the interpretation of the anti-tax avoidance rules. 

  • Is there such a thing as a ‘free lunch’?

    If a business provides a canteen for staff, VAT is due on what the business actually charges for the meals, etc.  If a business charges the market rate, VAT would be due in the normal way.  Andrew Needham looks at the VAT consequences of providing free meals and other perks to staff. 

  • Incorporating a property portfolio might cost less than you think! 

    Iain Rankin explores potential ways to overcome the tax and finance challenges that make the decision to incorporate not as straightforward as some landlords believe. 

  • The updated CEST tool: Is determining employment status any easier? 

    Sarah Bradford explains how the updated ‘check employment status for tax’ tool can be used to make status determinations for the purpose of the extended off-payroll working rules. 

  • Tax case reviews

    Mark McLaughlin reviews two recent important tax cases:

    • Discovery assessment was ‘stale’ and HMRC ignored case law on discovery 
    • Shares carried a preferential right to dividends  
  • IHT and domicile: Don’t make yourself at home!

    Non-UK domicile status can be valuable in terms of sheltering an individual’s estate from IHT. The TACS Partnership highlights some potential inheritance tax traps relating to domicile. 

  • Gifts for family maintenance: A ‘forgotten’ IHT planning option 

    Inheritance tax (IHT) arising on lifetime gifts or death may be mitigated by a variety of reliefs and exemptions.  Malcolm Finney looks at a valuable but often overlooked inheritance tax exemption.
