  • Autumn Statement: Experts give their verdicts


    23.11.16

    Nimesh Shah, partner at Blick Rothenberg said: "In an interesting twist, the chancellor announced that the annual Budget will now take place in the Autumn and the Spring announcement will be a general update on the public finances (starting from 2018). This is welcomed and it is hugely refreshing that the government will move to a single Budget to avoid the regular plethora of tax policy changes throughout the year. Hopefully, the new timetable will act as a longer-term objective to simplify the UK’s tax legislation and not constantly add to it.

    "In keeping with recent tax announcements, there will be further measures against tax avoidance. Since 2010, the government claims that it has raised £130bn through countered tax avoidance measures and the UK’s tax gap remains one of the lowest in the world.

    "However, further tax avoidance deterrents are to be introduced, including targeting self-employed individuals who avoid paying tax on payments or profits by using “disguised remuneration” arrangements. This will put self-employed individuals on a level playing field with employees."

  • Non-doms to benefit from changes in business investment relief


    23.11.16

    “The government has been surprised by the lack of take-up of the scheme,” said Nimesh Shah, a partner at Blick Rothenberg, the accountants. “There have also been some ‘bear traps’ within the scheme that have made non-doms wary.”

    These had included avoidance measures to prevent individuals benefiting from tax-free income from companies in which they invest, Mr Shah explained.

    “The scheme needs to be made simpler and easier to use,” he added. “There needs to be more publicity around it.”
