  • Royal wedding bells ring in tax liabilities


    Nimesh Shah, partner at Blick Rothenberg, said, ‘Residents of Windsor will naturally find their properties in high demand this weekend. The rise of websites such as Airbnb demonstrates the popularity of short term lets and taxpayers should bear in mind that if potential customers can see their advertisements online, so can HMRC.'

  • How woods can be tax-free


    Frank Nash, partner at Blick Rothenberg said, ‘Getting professional advice from a land agent with woodlands experience is essential, not only to make a good initial investment, but to assist  with any business plans that will support the case for IHT relief.’

  • Mental health problems can be 'exacerbated' by HMRC demands, experts say


    Mrs Fernie, a partner at Blick Rothenberg, said that people with mental health problems often felt ‘lost in the system’ and the stress of dealing with the taxman could amplify their health issues.

    ‘For some taxpayers, being under enquiry can result in the exacerbation of mental health conditions. Explaining this to the HMRC officer undertaking the enquiry is important. This can result in extra time to comply with information requests and impact HMRC’s decisions regarding penalties – although this will not mean that HMRC withdraws from an enquiry if they feel they require further explanation or that there is a real risk of unpaid tax.’

  • Tax free royal duties?


    Lee Hamilton, partner at Blick Rothenberg, said, ‘Unlike most people in the UK, this means that Meghan could benefit from several major UK tax concessions. Whether Meghan will receive a "salary" or "allowance" from the Royal Household is not clear. However, if she does receive any taxable employment income, her non-domicile status means that she can claim tax relief in respect of her non-UK duties for the first three tax years that she is resident in the UK.’

  • Overseas territories to introduce public ownership registers


    Gary Gardner, partner at Blick Rothenberg, said, ‘The government initially resisted the amendment despite the revelations from the Panama, Bahamas and Paradise papers and, more recently, the furore over the horrific events in Salisbury and the suggestion of an unchecked flow of illicit funds from predatory states and organised crime through the UK's overseas territories and into the UK.'

  • The Amateur Adviser


    ‘An attorney does not have carte blanche to do what they like. The assets that have been placed in the care of the attorney still belong to the donor,’ says Rebecca Goldring at Blick Rothenberg.

  • Advertising watchdog ruling


    ‘Heather felt sufficiently strongly that she rang HMRC’s avoidance hotline and alerted it to the scheme. She then asked Dan what the process would be to report the advisers to the SRA since they appeared to be SRA-regulated, but to be promoting a scheme in contravention of the authority’s guidance on the matter,' said Heather Self, Blick Rothenberg and Dan Neidle, Clifford Chance.

  • So farewell, partner


    Susan Hutter, partner at Blick Rothenberg, said, ‘I find it is always a good idea to have a round table-meeting with the lawyers and the practice accountants to go through the agreement before it is signed.’ She added, ‘With all these issues, planning is key. If there is a formal notice period in the partnership agreement – which is certainly recommended – start working on dealing with the exit of the partner as soon as  notice is given in order to give you time to work through all the issues.’

  • Digital tax revolution on ice: what does the delay mean for you?


    Nimesh Shah, of Blick Rothenberg, the accountants, said, ‘It's becoming a bit of a mish mash, some things will still be manual and some will be digital. For the average taxpayer it's become a bit more confusing. If they're taking this piece-meal approach it could lead to more complexity for taxpayers. It would be better if you just knew one way or the other.’

  • U.K. businesses ignore scheme that aids post-Brexit tax plans


    Companies should consider BTIRs as part of their Brexit preparations due to the certainty they can provide, said panelist Simon Sutcliffe, indirect tax partner at accounting firm Blick Rothenberg. ‘That said, many firms I speak to have not heard of it,’ he said in an April 27 email, suggesting reasons for the lack of growth in the U.K.'s BTI requests. The government has ‘a publicity issue.’
