Capital taxes in light of the general election

Date: 21 September 2020 09:30 - 12:30

Type: Course, Tax

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

An essential update when advising clients on capital taxes.

The Conservative manifesto contain few clues on this area other than a promise of no changes to rates but it did contain an ominous promise of a review of entrepreneur’s relief.

This is a very expensive relief costing the treasury around £2.5 billion each year. At this stage, little else is known but will be by the time of the course – best bets indicate that a working time requirement (like the old retirement relief rules) may well be introduced – what planning could you do if this is going to be a problem for your clients?

Event information

We also know that Principal Private Residence relief costs the treasury 10 times that (around £28 Billion) and the draft finance bill, published in July, contained many “oven ready” measures to curtail this so clearly whilst there will be detail in the budget, this must be an ongoing area of reform.

Finally, the budget is likely to contain many of the “simplification measures” proposed in the OTS report again published in July. This report largely went unnoticed with all the Brexit problems. Many of these proposals are again “oven ready” for implementation. Some of these measures could fundamentally change the interaction of life time and will planning as measures such as the abolition of the uplift on death for CGT where BPR/APR are available.

More details will follow due to the uncertainty of the date for the budget.
