DAILY TAX TIP: ISAs on Death

DAILY TAX TIP:

ISAs on Death

It is now possible for married couples to inherit each others cash in an ISA and keep the tax breaks on death. The surviving spouse will obtain a special ISA allowance, which will allow them to put the extra amount into their own ISA equal to the value of their dead spouse’s ISA.

DAILY TAX TIP: Timing your capital asset disposals

DAILY TAX TIP: 

Timing your capital asset disposals.

The rate of Capital Gains Tax you must pay is linked to the amount of income you receive in the tax year. You may be able to reduce your capital gains tax by making sure that any gains you have (from investment property sales, share sales etc) fall into a tax year in which you have a lower level of income.

DAILY TAX TIP: Lifetime Pension Allowance.

DAILY TAX TIP: 

Lifetime Pension Allowance.

The maximum amount of money you can accumulate in a pension is called the lifetime allowance. Any excess over the limit is taxed at 55% if the excess savings are taken as a lump sum and 25% if taken as taxable income. The lifetime allowance is currently £1,030,000 for 2018/19.

To benefit as a couple, you need to earn less than your partner and have an income of £11,850 or less (2018/19). Your partner’s income must be between £11,851 and £46,350 (England & Wales) for you to be eligible.

DAILY TAX TIP: 

Private Lettings Relief. If you sell an investment property that was at some point your main residence, and has been let out during your period of ownership, you can look to claim private lettings relief to reduce the amount of any gain that is subject to capital gains tax. The amount you can claim is the lowest of the amount of private residence relief, £40,000 and the amount of the gain that is chargeable by reason of the letting.

DAILY TAX TIP: Crowdfunding Income is Taxable.

DAILY TAX TIP: 

Crowdfunding Income is Taxable. If you’re looking to raise some cash in order to launch a new product, fund a specific project, or finance the growth of your business, it might be that you’re considering using a crowdfunding site such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Whilst any income generated is taxable, you should be able to offset any business expenditure funded by the donations to leave the income effectively tax neutral.

DAILY TAX TIP: Put money aside for your tax.

DAILY TAX TIP: 
Put money aside for your tax. Open a deposit or business savings account and transfer a set percentage of all your income to ensure you can easily pay your tax bill.
