The clocks have changed so Autumn is here

At O&K our team are always looking at ways to help our personal and business clients. Our summer e-newsletter has some more ways we can help you and your business thrive.

This edition includes information about the impact of BREXIT on VAT, the latest on HMRCs Making Tax Digital, sound advice about Pension freedoms, as well as the offer of a FREE 90 Minute consultation.

The VAT Question
What happens if there is a ‘no deal’ Brexit?

HMRC has published guidance entitled. VAT for businesses if there’s no Brexit deal.

This guidance does point out that a scenario of the UK leaving the EU without an agreement “remains unlikely” but who knows what’s going to happen over the next few months!.

There are no surprises in the information as much of the guidance simply states the consequences for any country of being outside the the EU for VAT purposes.

Clearly there will be lots of questions to answer, so we are here to help you.

Take a look at HMRC Guidance HERE or alternatively call us on 020 8686 7756 for advice.

Making Tax Digital
The end of the VAT return as we know it
Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT is designed to transform the UK VAT system.

HMRCs aim is to make the VAT system more efficient and simpler for taxpayers and advisers alike.

This is just one aspect of MTD, there are many others. Get in touch to find out how this new regime is going to effect you and your business.

Pension Freedoms
Beware of the possible tax implications!

Pension Freedom was introduced in April 2015 to give investors greater freedom over how they access their retirement funds. However, in some cases, the new legislation seems to have given investors the impression that they can just go ahead on their own and fully en-cash their plans without considering the tax consequences.

We would always advocate taking professional advice BEFORE doing anything with your pension funds especially as the tax implications can be onerous.
