  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Discovery assessment season - unexpected bills from HMRC

    The threads are filling up with stories of unexpected bills arriving from HMRC. Whilst there is no substitute for getting proper advice that suits your own circumstances, the following general description may help reduce the shock. However if you have an accountant - ask her/him for help. If...

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: BIG GROUP

    Mod edit: Joining instructions. This started elsewhere but should be on its own. I have two takers so far. To clarify this BIG GROUP is ONE GROUP across ALL schemes. It does not impact action individuals may wish to take on their own or via other groups.

  5. Sticky Thread Sticky: Disappearing loans?

    It's a common feature of these threads that lenders have become difficult to find and engage with. We have recently had some experience in this arena. In most schemes that used loans, certainly until 2011, loans were advanced by the company acting as trustee for a trust. In some cases, the...

  1. Are you being told that your loan isn't taxable??

    I'm contracting in the NHS and have been bombarded with Umbrellas offering employee loans, I've only just signed up but haven't been paid and am now reading up as much as possible and believe a new law is coming into effect at the end of September which makes it a criminal offence. I'm now very...

  2. Historic APNs

    There is a case to be made for claiming that the majority of historic APNs are no longer valid following the Rangers decision. It might be worth asking HMRC that question. We are aware that some recent representations that include this argument are being referred to various HMRC internal...

  10. Exclamation Settling is more expensive that paying the 2019 loan charge

    That is the surprising conclusion after doing a load of worked examples. You would think having all the loans taxed in a single year 2018/19 would make the loan charger higher than if the loans were taxed in the years they were received, especially if you earn other income in 2018/19. ...

  13. OK let's say you want to unwind your EBT

    In the run up to the 2019 retro tax, if might make sense to unwind an EBT. Let's say you own the company and have taken out £1mill. HMRC says that if you pay the loan back you are home free. 1) Do you need to pay the stipulated loan interest rate to avoid BIK? 2) All the time the company has...
