Case Studies - The Specialist Stuff

Some of these case studies are historical, obviously, however you can be certain that in any given situation I always ensure that I am competely up to date with relevant current practice, as I did at the time.

Capital Gains Tax - Special Clothing

Successfully negotiated with the Inland Revenue of the estate of a well known ballerina, achieving a Nil value for CGT in respect of highly valuable special clothing on the grounds that the clothing was a wasting asset.

PAYE - Home Office Expenses

In the course of a routine PAYE Enquiry into a 'large employer' payroll, successfully negotiated with the Inland Revenue for a minimal payment settlement on the grounds that a reasonable alowance for home office expenses by directors and senior employees was both allowable relief for Corporation Tax purposes, and was also exempt from Income Tax and National Insurance liability.

Capital Gains Tax - Gift of a Domestic Residence from Parent to Children

Successfully argued with the Inland Revenue that the original market value of the residence should stand and that no increase in the value of the property over time would be acceptable, and that therefore there was no additional Capital Gains Tax payable.

Principal Private Residence Relief - Living In and Letting Out Multiple Domestic Properties

Made a claim on behalf of a client owning many domestic properties over many years, both living in those properties as a Principal Private Residence and letting out the same properties from time to time, including reviewing the Capital Gains Tax position on the future potential sale of one of those properties, for a particular property to be elected as the Principal Private Residence and therefore potentially exempt from Capital Gains Tax.

Inland Revenue Tax Enquiry - Nil Tax Payment Settlement

Successfully negotiating a nil tax payment settlement over the course of an Inland Revenue Tax Enquiry into a restaurant and takeaway business.

Finding these details and sorting them out is my job.

And I'm quite good at it.
