Businesses want answers on tax changes

Following the failure of Teresa May to win a majority at the election there is a lack of clarity as to which of the changes to the tax system will go ahead. Will there now be pressure to increase the tax on higher earners by either not increasing the higher rate threshold or otherwise changing the system to get a bit more tax out of higher earners? Will the reduction in the tax-free dividend allowance from £5,000 to £2,000 be re-introduced having been hastily withdrawn?

Ian Sheekey

 Ian Sheekey left Hugh Davies & Co to join Total Tax in Fordingbridge after more than twelve years. We are sorry to see him go but in some ways it may be beneficial to the firm. We are now a smaller firm, all working on the same floor of the office. This will be good for efficiency and client service.

Under the terms of our agreement I cannot act for his clients and he cannot act for mine. If this inconveniences some clients who still wish to be looked after in Salisbury there are arrangements in place for meetings and the drop off of records.

Autumn Budget 2017

Tuesday, 28 November 2017

Phillip Hammond faced a difficult task in this budget. He was obviously reluctant to abandon the fiscal prudence that he and his predecessor, George Osborne, truly believe in. However, he was under considerable pressure to do something to stimulate the economy and relax the 'austerity' measures that are in danger of making the Conservative party unelectable for large swathes of the population. His last budget was percieved as a bit of a disaster, with a number of measures being quickly abandoned. He could not afford that to happen again.

So, from a tax point of view, it was mostly good news.

Persons of significant control

Monday, 14 August 2017

Following the introduction last year of the requirement for companies to maintain a register of Persons of Significant Control (PSCs) there have been further changes in recent weeks which now oblige companies to report all changes to their PSC information on an ongoing basis, rather than waiting until the next Confirmation statement is filed.

Companies now have 14 days to update their PSC register and a further 14 days to notify Companies House of the changes.

As a reminder a Person of Significant Control is someone who meets one or more of the following conditions:

  1. An individual who holds more than 25% of shares in the company.

  2. An individual who holds more than 25% of voting rights in the company.

  3. An individual who holds the right to appoint or remove the majority of the board of directors of the company.

  4. An individual who has the right to exercise, or actually exercises, significant influence or control over the company.

  5. Where a trust or firm would satisfy one of the first four conditions if it were an individual. Any individual holding the right to exercise, or actually exercising, significant influence or control over the activities of that trust or firm.

A new batch of forms (PSC01 to PSC09) have been released to deal with any changes, and these need to be filed online in order to keep the records up to date.

If you have any queries regarding this please contact Karen or Hugh to discuss further.
