Year 18 - issue 8 - 19.01.2017

DIRECTORS’ DUTIES

Seven-year ban for Mr Perfect

A sole director has been disqualified for seven years because he failed to maintain proper accounting records on behalf of the company. What financial information are you required to keep?

OVERSEAS TRADE

Brexit and the new GREAT.gov.uk portal

The Department for International Trade was set up following the Brexit vote to help UK businesses secure overseas trade deals. To achieve this aim, it has launched the new GREAT.gov.uk portal. What is it and should you use it?

TAX - PROFIT EXTRACTION

How much tax will you pay on your income in 2017/18?

A new tax year starts in April and the good news is that you’ll be able to receive significantly more income taxable at the basic rate. How can you make the most of this when planning how to take income from your company in 2017/18?

SELLING A BUSINESS

Can minority shareholders block company sale?

You want to sell the family business but a few die-hard minority shareholders are blocking the deal. Can you force their hand to sell and what steps could you take to avoid this type of problem happening in the first place?

TAX - TERMINATION PAYMENTS

Are non-cash termination payments tax free?

One of the directors is parting ways with the company and you’re negotiating a pay-off. He wants to keep his company car as part of the deal. What are the tax and NI consequences for the director and the company?

PERSONNEL

The key questions to ask training providers

Your business needs to train some employees and, as you don’t have the appropriate expertise in-house, an external training provider is required. What questions will help ensure that you maximise your return on investment?

COMPANY LAW

Do you have to hold board meetings?

From time to time you’re bound to discuss company business and administration with your fellow directors. But is a decision made with one other director, rather than a majority in a board meeting, valid or could it land you in trouble?

ACCOUNTS

PENSIONS
