Acquisition Tax Planning

The acquisition process offers up a unique (frequently the only) opportunity to structure the new organisation to optimise its tax planning advantages. Questions like where the company will be located for tax purposes, revenue recognition policies, how shareholdings are structured, voting rights, dividend options and many more are often matter’s that are best agreed at the outset of the new life of a venture.

Jerroms can assist with the options appraisal and the advantages/disadvantages of each of the choices. It may be a cliché but it is often the case that you will only have one opportunity to get these things right from the outset.

Capital Allowances

Capital Allowances are a form of tax relief given in place of depreciation (which is not allowable for tax purposes) on qualifying items of plant and machinery.
This extends to many fixtures and integral features in a commercial building (and some larger residential ones) such as the plumbing, electrics, security system and fire alarms to name a few.

Whilst claiming allowances on the movable items (machinery, vehicles etc) is nothing extraordinary, many are unaware they are entitled to claim a proportion of the purchase consideration of a property. This is allowed because the purchase expenditure was deemed to have been in part for the fixtures in place at the time.

Furthermore, due to the difficulties of accurately valuing systems imbedded in a property and the maze of case law in this area, allowances are often inaccurately assessed and processed even when taxpayers are aware of their right to claim. This means that many businesses are claiming only a portion of the expense that is available to them.

Capital Gains Tax Planning

One of the least understood form of taxation is Capital Gains Tax and like most forms of taxation some timely and careful tax planning can mitigate the exposure to this form of taxation.

This is especially important if you are contemplating the sale of your business or making an investment into an asset that may yield a capital gain (for example equity shares).

Jerroms Corporate Finance can help you with your planning to potentially reduce your exposure to this form of taxation. We offer help and advise on the following:

  • Annual Exemptions and their optimum use
  • CGT tax planning and the engagement of spouses
  • CGT tax planning and pension contributions
  • Loss Relief(s)
  • CGT Deferrals
  • Venture Capital Trusts (VCT)
  • Entrepreneurs Relief (ER)
  • Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)
  • Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

Employment Related Securities

A fiscal valuation (a fiscal valuation refers to a valuation for tax purposes) will be required for company owners, directors and key employees where companies choose to introduce any of the following:

  • Share Allotments to Employees
  • Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI) share schemes
  • Other approved and unapproved share option schemes
  • ESOP trusts
  • Phantom Share Schemes

We can help you to consider the pros and cons of various valuation options, advise you upon the impact that certain employee restrictions/rights (especially rights relating to departing employees) will have upon the likely value and advise you on the possible view that HM Revenue & Customs will take on the subject of valuation.

We will prepare the case to be presented to HM Revenue & Customs for the preferred/chosen valuation, negotiate the valuation with HM Revenue & Customs (Shares and Asset Valuation office) and work with you to secure the best possible compromise.  We can also advise you on the difference between ‘restricted’ and ‘unrestricted market value’

Venture Capital Trust (VCT)

A Venture Capital Trust or VCT is a tax efficient UK investment scheme designed to provide Venture Capital for small expanding companies, and income (in the form of dividend distributions) and/or Capital Gains for investors. Investors enjoy up to 30% income tax relief on investment that they make into the trust (total investment is presently capped at £200k for each tax year), exemption from income tax on dividends received and an exemption from tax on capital gains (providing the shares are held for at least 5 years).

VCT is one of a number of UK tax schemes that are intended to encourage investment into the equity capital of risky, early stage, UK SME’s. Two of the other better known schemes are the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS).
