In a rapidly evolving environment, effective teams will be likely be split between remote and onsite/in-office working.

Capital Tax planning

Northern Society of Chartered Accountants www.norsca.co.uk

An essential update for accountants involved in the provision of advice to clients particularly in the area of estate planning, successions in OMBs.

Following the March 2021 Budget, we will know whether the Chancellor was able to introduce his “Great Reform Budget” to “simplify” Capital Taxes. In this case, the course will deal with these changes. If the economy has not recovered sufficiently to allow these reforms yet, we will need to look as we come out of Covid and Brexit, how our clients need to restructure estates and succession planning to take advantage of the old rules whilst there is time.

Course information

The Budget on 3 March was not the “Great Reform Budget” of Capital Taxes that was widely feared. However, we now know the huge damage done to the public finances by the pandemic. We also know that there is a clamour to restructure the funding of “social welfare” which the Chancellor has not been able to address. We also know that there will be an Autumn Budget. This course will consider the planning that your clients would be wise to consider over the summer before the Autumn could bring radical change.

The content will be highly dependent upon developments in the run up to the course and full details will be made available nearer the time.

Content

  • Principal Private Residence relief costs around £28 Billion and the Finance Act 2020 contained many “oven ready” measures to curtail this but these just scratch the surface so clearly, this must be an ongoing area of reform. Will there be more?
  • Capital tax planning must always run alongside pensions planning so changes to either will have consequences on planning for the other!
  • The Budget is likely to contain many of the “simplification measures” proposed in the OTS reports published in July 2019 into IHT and in November 2020 and February 2021 into “simplifying CGT by design” and may even adopt some of the radical the APPG report of early 2020 (which floated the possibility of the abolition of IHT and the effective reintroduction of CTT).
  • These measures could fundamentally change the way we do both life time and will planning as measures such as the abolition of the uplift on death for CGT where BPR/APR are available are easily legislated for.
  • The course will look at “vanilla” planning which your clients may wish to consider as a result.
  •  It will also look at the lessons learnt from the Spring 2020 Budget changes to Entrepreneurs Relief (now Business Asset Disposal Relief) as to what planning is acceptable and what is unlikely to be OK.
