Tax news 2020 - April issue

  • Employment-related securities and the family company

    For anyone advising limited companies and their directors, the initials ERS (employment- related securities) tend to send a shiver of fear down the spine – or, if they don’t, perhaps they should do. 
    Alan Pink looks at an often-overlooked problem with share awards in family companies.

  • When buying a business should you retain its VAT number?

    Andrew Needham looks at the consequences of retaining a business VAT number when it is bought as a going concern.

  • A slow start? Start-up businesses and loss reliefs

    Lee Sharpe looks at the loss reliefs available on the commencement of a new business. 

    This article covers the key loss reliefs available to businesses on commencement:

    •    General sideways loss relief against total income (not available only on commencement).
    •    Opening years losses.
    •    Losses on incorporation.
    •    Transfer of trade under common beneficial ownership.

  • Trivial benefit traps - And how to avoid them

    Sarah Bradford highlights some of the potential traps in applying the trivial benefits exemption and explains how to avoid them.

  • Tax case reviews

    Mark McLaughlin reviews two recent important tax cases:

    • HMRC’s allocation of tax payments was not unreasonable
    • Online tax return filing notice was valid despite notification emails being assumed to be spam and deleted 
  • Tax planning – In reverse!

    Tax planning can be hazardous and uncertain. For example, if a tax planning arrangement is considered to overstep the mark, there is a plethora of targeted anti-avoidance rules (TAARs) and less specific anti-avoidance legislation, which can render the planning ineffective for tax purposes. The TACS Partnership points out that mistakes about the tax consequences of certain actions can be rectified in some instances.

  • Discounted gift trusts and IHT planning

    Malcolm Finney takes a look at a valuable inheritance tax planning option.
