Re: Any tax reliefs/expenses for a place rented purely for work?

I wasn't proposing anything, I was just giving an exaggerated view of how HMRC perceive people's choices in the real world.

Although, it wasn't so long ago that mortgage interest (the single biggest item of household expenditure for most people) was tax deductible for your home.

Re: Remittance charge, Resident but Non dom

Just re-read it's from 2016 - so should be plenty of time to make the election and/or resubmit returns.

Re: Remittance charge, Resident but Non dom

Remittance basis is a claim. If they didn't claim it then they are taxable on the arising basis on worldwide income.

Is the client still in time to make the election for the year in question?

Re: Is transfer of Share ownership to spouse necessary before sale to avoid UK CGT?

The situation is my wife has been gifted some shares by her company as part of their IPO. She has paid a peppercorn for these so I believe they are all taxable as a CGT gain. The shares are currently worth 70k. I'm not an accountant but I was of the understanding that if shares are sold to an emplo...

Re: Any tax reliefs/expenses for a place rented purely for work?

Unfortunately, HMRC take the view that as you could live in a cardboard box on the steps of your new office for free anything you do that creates a cost in terms of living and getting to your employment is a personal indulgence and shouldn't be tax deductible.

Re: Starting a business as a tax agent, registering with HMRC and required qualifications

As per the other posters, rather shockingly there is no requirement to have any tax qualifications at all to run a tax business. If you're planning on running a reclaim business then unless you are going to be giving the tax advice yourself there's no reason to qualify with ATT or CTA and it's proba...

Re: [UK] Gaming Community (Sticky situation, kinda?)

A lot of the answers to the questions will depend on what you plan to do with the service. If your donations are simply voluntary contributions paid by people because they want to support what you are doing and assist with the running costs and you don't make any profit (ie you are having to cover s...

Re: Offshore assets transfered to a UK Trust via an aunt

How long have you all been resident in the UK and how much are you looking to settle into trust? If you have been in the UK for more than 15 years you may be deemed domicile. What's the intention with the funds are they going to be brought into the UK and invested into UK assets? If you are still no...

Re: Mitigate Corp tax on windfall

Unfortunately there's no magic pill that makes your tax go away. You had a good year and made a profit, be glad your company will only pay 19%/17% corporation tax. Other than pension contributions, assuming your business doesn't require any investment in equipment you could buy a Tesla or two for 10...

Re: Please help

As DarthBling says, the cash gift doesn't need to be disclosed unless you die within 7 years. It's a Potentially Exempt Transfer (PET) which becomes exempt after 7 years. However, you should make a record of the gift somewhere your executors can find (less of an issue if your children are your execu...
