December seminar – The widening income tax and capital gains tax divide

Our latest seminar, ‘Tax Planning for the Entrepreneur’ was held on 8 December 2015 at the Worsley Marriot Hotel.

As a result of recent tax changes (in particular the increase in dividend rates for next year) the capital and income divide has never been greater. From 6 April 2016, CGT rates will range from 10% to 28%, compared with top rates of dividend and income tax of 38.1% and 45%.

Our seminar therefore focused on opportunities and techniques to take advantage of the lower capital gains rates whilst these are still on offer.

The restrictions on interest relief for buy to let properties, and employee share arrangements were also analysed within the context of the increased cost of getting dividends out of companies.
