  • Concerns over future of entrepreneurs' relief


    23.01.15

    Robert Pullen, tax manager at Blick Rothenberg, warns of the misunderstanding surrounding the cost of entrepreneurs’ relief to the government
     

    He comments that not only do rising claims reflect improvements in business activity over the past five years, but the lower rate of CGT encourages business owners selling up to pay UK tax.


    “There is no way that the Revenue would have been able to raise the same amount of tax if entrepreneurs were paying tax [on the sale of their business] at a rate of 28 per cent.”

  • HMRC unveils the 10 worst excuses for late tax returns


    07.01.15

    Following HMRC releasing the 10 worst excuses for people not filing or paying their tax returns on time, Nimesh Shah, partner at Blick Rothenberg, warns of the penalties people can face when the deadline is missed. He comments; "“Within six months you could be facing total penalties of at least £1,300,” Mr Shah said. “The penalties start to become even more serious if your tax return is more than 12 months late and can be as much as 200pc of the tax. In addition HMRC will charge daily interest at 3pc.”

  • Ask the experts - I'm facing a CPO on my buy-to-let. Will I have to pay CGT?


    11.12.14

    Nimesh Shah, partner at Blick Rothenberg, answers a readers question on CGT exemptions for landlords who are forced to sell. He comments "The amount of relief depends on whether you have occupied, or are ‘deemed’ to have occupied, the property,"

    "The most common form of deemed occupation is the last 18 months of ownership of the property, and this is available if the property in question has been your only or main residence at some point."

    "You may be able to claim what is known as roll-over relief in relation to the capital gain if you reinvest the proceeds in a new property,"

    "Roll-over relief effectively defers the capital gain until the new asset is sold in the future. The benefit is that you do not have to pay the capital gains tax now."

  • Stealth tax trap swells numbers paying 40%


    07.12.14

    Susan Spash, partner at Blick Rothenberg comments on the number of people subject to the penal effective rate of income of tax 60%: "While the threshold at which individuals will pay 40% tax on their income will increase, the level at which the 45% rate of income tax applies remains unchanged at over £150,000, as does the threshold of £100,000 at which the personal allowance is clawed back.

    "This will mean that increasing numbers will be subject to the penal effective rate of income tax of 60% in the £21,200 band above £100,000 while their allowance is clawed back."
