Solvent Liquidations - Tax Planning and other issues
Under current legislation shareholders receiving a distribution through an MVL or, where appropriate, using Extra Statutory Concession C16, may benefit from the business asset taper relief provisions.
The government has recently announced (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/cgt/disposal.htm) that as from 6 April 2008 all capital gains will be taxed at a flat rate of 18% irrespective of the marginal income tax rate of the taxpayer concerned; and also that the current systems of taper relief and of indexation allowance will be abolished. Alongside these reforms the government will introduce a tax relief for many entrepreneurs that will deliver a 10% tax rate for up to the first £1 million of lifetime capital gains.
