Business succession planning and option agreements »
Introduction Business succession planning is relevant to sole proprietors, partnerships, limited liability partnerships (LLPs) and limited companies.  It is geared towards setting up a business protection arrangement to provide for the smooth transfer of a business interest in the event of a business owner’s departure from the business whether on death, critical illness or disability, planned or otherwise; and at the same time ensuring that appropriate financial compensation is provided to the deceased’s family (on death) or the incapacitated owner (eg in the event of critical illness).  In general, the implications for sole proprietors are different from those which apply for those who own a business with others.

With the drop in the lifetime allowance over recent years more and more of my conversations are focused on those that have exceeded the lifetime allowance. There are those that will not have applied or protection for one reason or another or invalidated protection they did apply for.
New tax year pension tasks »
Now we are in the new tax year it will soon be possible to get a grip on what allowances are remaining from the 2017/18 tax year with regards to the annual allowance and to check pension contributions for the previous years.   For those not subject to the tapered annual allowance it should have been possible to get accurate figures before the end of the tax year for any money purchase schemes and contributions but for those subject to the taper any small amount of taxable income will have an impact to the available annual allowance and therefore use of any carry forward from previous years.

Domicile and trusts: review of recent changes I »
A lot has happened in the last couple of years as regards the tax treatment of non-UK domiciled individuals as well as offshore trusts. Now that almost all of the changes have come into effect (the latest from 6 April 2018) it is a good time to review the issues relevant to those who are or have been affected by those changes. Principally we are concerned about individuals who are not domiciled in the UK but are either resident in the UK or own property here. This month we will concentrate on the fundamentals and next month we will consider some specific planning strategies that are still relevant.
