Company Cash Extraction Strategies

If you operate your business as a company, you will pay corporation tax on any profits that your company makes. You may also pay tax on the profits when you take them out of the company. This short but informative guide looks at how to extract profits in a tax and NIC-efficient manner.

Protecting Your Assets

Broadly, asset protection is simply a way of protecting assets from the threats that they may face, whether physical or financial. Often, asset protection involves moving an asset from the ownership of one person or entity to another. This guide looks at a few of the strategies for protecting assets and at the associated tax implications.

Company Directors Tax Tips

Company directors present a number of tax challenges, including how to extract profits from the company in a way that is efficient from both a tax and National Insurance perspective. Other challenges include managing the director’s loan account to avoid unnecessary tax charges. This guide looks at some tax planning strategies for company directors.

Beating The Landlord Tax Rises

Landlords have faced a number of tax-hikes in recent years. New rules mean that relief for interest is being restricted, purchasers of second and subsequent residential homes now face a 3% SDLT supplement, and where a capital gain relates to a residential property, a higher rate of capital gains tax applies than for other gains.

Dividend Tax Rules

Since the taxation of dividends was reformed with effect from 6 April 2016, individuals have been entitled to a dividend allowance. However, the allowance was reduced from £5,000 to £2,000 from 6 April 2018. Despite the changes, dividends still have a role to play in extracting funds from a family company in a tax-efficient manner.

Property Partnerships

Where property is owned jointly, the way in which the rental income is taxed depends on whether the letting is carried on in partnership. However, joint letting does not in itself create a partnership – HMRC’s view is that where a jointly-owned property is let out, there will not usually be a property partnership but where one exists this will determine how profits and losses are treated.
