New (Tax) Year Resolutions
If you are like us and have failed miserably with your New Year resolutions then fear not. There is still time to take action ahead of the new tax year starting on 6 April.
Here are some ideas you might want to consider:
Spouses or Civil Partners
Have both of you used your personal allowances or is one of you a higher rate tax payer? You might want to consider gifting income producing assets such as shares or property to the lower paid spouse. Alternatively, if you are in business, you might want to employ your spouse and pay them a commercially justifiable salary for the employment duties they perform.
There is still time to make a pension contribution before 5 April and secure some income tax relief. Even if you don’t have any UK earnings it may be possible to contribute up to £3,600 a year (gross) into a scheme.
Changes for Residential Property Tax
It might be worth considering bringing residential property transactions forward due to changes in some tax-free exemption periods, and there is a new reporting requirement on the sale of all UK residential properties too.
Every new tax year brings changes to legislation and as advisors we ensure our clients are fully informed. Another example coming in April is around Electric Company Cars which has the potential to turn previous wisdom on its head!
We will be discussing the above in more depth, along with other relevant topics while enjoying a busy morning of networking. Just remember to bring your business cards!
