Key points we think you should be considering right now resulting from Rishi’s latest budget;
- The new ‘super deduction’ for most plant and machinery purchases comes into play from 1st April 2021, so it may be worth holding off purchasing any assets that would usually qualify for capital allowances at 18% until after this date
- Tax Losses generated during accounting periods ended between 1st April 2020 and 31st March 2022 for companies and for tax years 2020/21 and 2021/22 for unincorporated businesses (i.e. self employed individuals) will be available to be carried back for three years, the losses will be taken against later years first. We will be reviewing our client’s losses and will be in touch in this regard
- If you are self-employed ensure you apply for the self-employment grants if required – note important dates in your diary, we will be in touch as soon as the portal for applying for grants opens
- Keep in mind that furlough scheme has been extended to September HOWEVER employers will need to start contributing to the cost of employee’s wages from July onwards
- Minimum wage has increased to £8.91 per hour from April, ensure that your payroll teams are aware of this
