Year 7 - issue 2 - 29.05.2020

CORONAVIRUS - CAPITAL GAINS TAX

Can clients cash in on worthless shares?

With the pandemic taking a heavy toll on businesses across the UK, your investor clients will likely have taken a hit on their share portfolios. But could this mean that they can secure a tax refund to cushion the blow?

BUSINESS ASSET DISPOSAL RELIEF

Dilution protection elections: valuing the shares

Your client is a minority shareholder in a company whose shareholding has recently been diluted to below 5%. They are considering making an election to lock in the 10% tax rate. How will the shares be valued, and what trap can you help them avoid?

INHERITANCE TAX

Residence nil rate band: maximising the relief

The residence nil rate band (RNRB) means married clients could benefit from a combined tax-free inheritance tax (IHT) allowance of £1 million. There are conditions and the allowance is withdrawn for larger estates. How can clients maximise their entitlement?

DEALING WITH HMRC

Can a client’s behaviour hinder a tribunal appeal?

A taxpayer recently found that acting unreasonably towards HMRC or the First-tier Tribunal can prove costly. What cautionary lesson can you pass on to clients who want to go to tribunal without representation?

CORONAVIRUS - CORPORATION TAX

Make the most of losses when a company ceases trading

Your clients are trying to make the best of a bad situation with the ongoing coronavirus crisis, but now the decision has been taken to close down one of their already loss-making companies. How can you help maximise their tax relief?

CAPITAL ALLOWANCES

Debunking clients’ preconceptions can lead to CAs savings

You believe a new client has substantial unclaimed capital allowances in respect of commercial premises. The client is convinced that these can’t be claimed due to previous poor advice and preconceptions. How can you help?

CORONAVIRUS - VAT

Are your clients overcharging VAT?

The fallout from the coronavirus crisis means that now is a good time to check if your clients are overcharging VAT to customers on some sources of income. How can you identify potential savings and what can you do about errors made on past returns?

CORONAVIRUS - VAT

Zero-rating date brought forward

CORONAVIRUS - PENSIONS

Tax charges temporarily suspended

IN THIS ISSUE - RESIDENCE

Crucial tax advice for a client coming to live in the UK

You have taken on a new non-domiciled client that will coming to live and work in the UK later in 2020. As well as preparing their tax returns, they want you to give them some advice ahead of the move. What are the first key issues you should consider, and what should you advise them to do ahead of the move date?
