KRW Tax Tips

Post-death inheritance tax planning using a deed of variation

on Thursday, 29 January 2015.

Whether a person dies intestate (see Tax News article) or leaves a will, sometimes the way that their estate is distributed can lead to unintended Inheritance Tax consequences.

In this month’s Tax Tip we look at how a deed of variation can be used to change the distribution of a deceased’s person’s estate to mitigate Inheritance Tax.

Save tax by transferring shares to your children

on Thursday, 15 January 2015.

Transferring shares to your children is caught by anti-avoidance rules which taxes the parents on any dividends paid to the children, and could trigger Capital Gains Tax, but is still worth exploring.

In this month’s Tax Tip we look at the advantages of transferring shares to your children and set out a further tip on the company buying their shares back from them in the future.

Use pension input periods to maximise pension contributions

on Thursday, 20 November 2014.

Under current rules the maximum pension contributions that can be made each year on which tax relief can be obtained is £40,000.

In this month's Tax Tip we look at the annual maximum, the carry forward rules, and how extra relief could be obtained by setting up two schemes with different pension input periods.

Enterprise management incentives: now even more tax efficient

on Thursday, 20 November 2014.

EMI schemes provide a tax efficient way to incentivise staff by offering them share options that enjoy certain tax benefits compared to other share schemes.

In this month's Tax Tip we look at recent changes that further enhance the tax benefits and make these schemes well worth considering for those looking to reward and retain key staff.

Relevant life insurance

on Monday, 06 October 2014.

Employer funded relevant life insurance can provide a useful tax free benefit for company owners, with the company usually also able to save tax on the premiums.

In this month's Tax Tip we look at the possible tax savings available with relevant life insurance, as compared to normal life cover, and how you can benefit.
