Are your clients fully aware of their tax planning opportunities?
The government and HMRC continue to clamp down on what they regard as tax avoidance and unacceptable tax planning. This can have unfortunate and unexpected consequences for taxpayers, and also unpleasant implications for ‘enablers’ of defeated tax avoidance.
There is still much that can legitimately be done to save or reduce tax. Written by some of the leading tax experts in the UK, Tax Planning 2018/19 aims to point out some of the areas where such planning opportunities still exist. As clients of professional firms expect prompt, appropriate and up-to-date advice from their advisers on minimising tax liabilities, this book is essential for tax practitioners, accountants, solicitors and independent financial advisers.
Key updates since the last edition include the following changes made by the Finance (No 2) Act 2017:
