At the heart of northern business since 1882

Tax planning for the family company

Date: 14 June 2018 13:30 to 17:00

Type: Course, Tax

Organiser: Cumberland

The aim of the course is not just to remind people of the current rules governing the taxation of Family Companies but also the traps. It is also to make sure that they are aware of how all the new developments in tax etc. fit into the advice given daily to clients.

Changes on IR35, the new rules on disguised remuneration impact this sector as do the restrictions on dividends making traditional advice more complex
This course looks at the life of the average family business from set up to sale from a taxation point of view.


• Incorporation
o Should we incorporate?
o Capital gains implications, including the transfer of intangibles (not goodwill?)
• Share structure – husband and wife companies, dividend waivers, nursery/school/university fees
• Financing the company
o Sources of finance available, including taking advantage of Seed EIS
• Close company provisions, in particular the rules for loans to participators and the interaction with the disguised remuneration rules
• Tax efficient extraction of funds from the company
• Capital tax planning and the new pension freedoms
o Transferring the family company – CGT and IHT issues
o Selling the family company
o Liquidations and tax efficient striking off of the company, especially cash rich companies, transactions in securities and all the new anti-avoidance

The course will include a number of case studies to illustrate the relevant points.
