DO I NEED PERSONAL TAX PLANNING?

Let us help you achieve your financial and business goals

Surprisingly many people do not consider themselves in a position to benefit from tax
planning. In the past many have viewed “tax planning” either with suspicion or scepticism,
especially as it’s been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

The reality is that tax planning is something everyone can and should be doing.

Next to living expenses, taxes of various sorts will be an individual’s highest outgoing. And yet statistically, it’s the one area that the majority of people do not apply any planning to.

We plan the life out of our household expenses, checking to make sure we aren’t overpaying on utilities, but we just assume that our tax bills are what they are!

There are plenty of areas that can be looked at

Tax on earnings

  • Employee benefits
  • Exchange Salary for benefits
  • Company cars pension contributions
  • Savings and investments
  • Using the ISA allowance
  • Transfer of savings to your spouse
  • Using Enterprise Investments Schemes to get substantial tax refunds

High income earners need to be aware of the £100,000 and £150,000 thresholds, as there are various strategies that can help to stay below these

Tax on earnings

The rate of tax on taxable dividend income (ie from shares not held in an ISA or pension fund) has risen from 6 April 2016 and the notional 10% tax credit is now abolished.

A new £2,000 nil rate band on dividend income has been introduced so the exact rate of tax anyone pays on their dividend income will depend on the amount they receive and their other income. With appropriate planning and care it is possible to structure Dividend payments and reduce the tax burden.

Here at Ten Forward, we have been providing solutions for many clients that meet these two goals.

What about property?

Owning your own property is relatively lightly taxed and in most cases your main home is exempt from Capital Gains Tax. However, you may be liable to capital gains tax if you own a second home, investment properties, land, business premises or use your home to generate income by renting it out, for example. Planning for income tax on property is vital, as the tax treatment can be complex.

Gear up your
Buy-To-Let

If you let a property and have significant equity (i.e. it is worth much more than the mortgage secured on it) you may be able to reduce the tax you will pay on rental profits by releasing equity in the property. In certain circumstances, property owners can increase their borrowing against a property and continue to claim tax relief on the loan interest.

Up until 6 April 2017, this relief is given by deducting the interest from the letting profit. From 2017/18 onwards, this method of relief will be cut back and from April 2020 relief on the interest will be limited to the basic rate of tax.

Incorporate Let Properties
Into a Company

With restrictions on loan interest deductions, in some circumstances there may be tax advantages in forming a limited company to take over the running of a property letting business.

These are just a few of the areas you can look out for.

We provide an all-round solutions for business owners that can help reduce your personal tax liabilities in a sensible structured manner.
