Get ahead with your taxes and financial planning for 2019/2020
Tax is a necessary part of your financial life. Without it, the Government could not provide services such as health, education, social care and the security of the population. However, it can be complicated, and the level of tax payable will vary according to the nature of the underlying transactions. You have choices to make around the structure of your business and investments, and those choices will have tax implications.
Key topics include:
- Dates and deadlines for your diary
- Starting a business
- Tax Reporting
- Exiting a business
- Savings and investment
- Planning for retirement
- Estate Planning
When should I plan?
It is advisable to have a regular review of your tax affairs at least once a year. This can be:
- When you are gathering the information to file your tax return
- Two or three months before the end of the tax year (5 April)
- In the last quarter of your accounting period, if you run a business
Give yourself enough time to do something before the crucial date. If you leave planning to the last minute, you may not have enough time to put the plan into action.
