Capital taxes in light of the general election & Covid-19

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 but since being elected the Coronavirus response has seen quite unprecedented government expenditure on various economic support measures.  This needs to be recouped – most likely through taxation. 

The Chancellor will be introducing another Budget this autumn in which he will have to start paying not only for the massive injection into the economy but also the infrastructure projects – needed to enhance the economic recovery – and manifesto promises such as the Northern Power House Project.

Capital Taxes changes allied with pensions reform must be on the agenda as he will find it difficult to change the “normal” taxes. So, what planning could you do if this is going to be a problem for your clients?

Event information

We know that Principal Private Residence relief costs the treasury around £28 Billion so clearly, whilst there will be detail in the budget, this could be an area ripe for reform.

The budget is likely to contain many simplification measures proposed by the OTS; 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.

The course will look at what we can expect and “vanilla” planning which your clients may wish to consider. It will also look at the lessons learnt from the Spring Budget changes to Entrepreneurs Relief as to what planning is acceptable and what is unlikely to be OK.
