Read the Autumn edition of our quarterly newsletter

31st August 2018

While the country basked in the hot weather and sporting excitement, the government has been reviewing consultations on several topics, hinting at changes to come in the Budget later this year.

Ahead of this, however, new rules and tribunal rulings are affecting personal and business affairs now. The impacts of these changes will be felt across a wide variety of situations, including property sales, Universal Credit payments and off-payroll working rules for contractors.

Our feature in our Autumn PDF newsletter is Defining your employment status for IR35. Reform is potentially coming to the private sector and off-payroll working rules. Alongside the government’s consultation, high-profile tax tribunal cases are offering insights into how the rules, including around mutuality of obligations, should be applied.

Our other stories include:

  • Don’t end up in hot water over VAT We look at the complicated issue of VAT, its very specific applications and the large penalties for getting it wrong.
  • Using Enterprise Management Incentives to retain talent Share option schemes can provide employers with a tax-efficient way to recruit and hold on to talent.
  • Fluctuating incomes impact on Universal Credit Self-employed workers with irregular income will potentially face reduced payments under Universal Credit rules.
