2013/14 TAX allowances and NIC thresholds announced

on Wednesday, 30 January 2013.

As part of the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement the personal allowance, tax bands and NIC thresholds were announced, which will apply from 6 April 2013 onwards.

In this month’s Tax News we summarise the changes and set out the optimum salary level that we will be recommending to most company owners for 2013/14.

Higher rate tax threshold to reduce to £41,865 then increase by 1% PA

on Thursday, 06 December 2012.

The higher rate tax threshold will be £41,865 from April 2013, down £610 from the current level of £42,475.

This is £235 higher than suggested in March’s Budget to pass on the increased personal allowance to higher rate taxpayers too. The threshold will then increase by 1% in both April 2014 and April 2015 but it means that more and more people will face 40% tax on part of their income.

Annual investment allowance increased to £250,000 for two years

on Thursday, 06 December 2012.

From 1 January 2013 the current Annual Investment Allowance, which gives enhanced tax relief for the purchase of plant and machinery, will be increased from £25,000 to £250,000 for a period of two years. This is great news for any business that spends more than £25,000 per annum on equipment.

Tax news: main rate of corporation tax to reduce to 21% from April 2014

on Thursday, 06 December 2012.

The main rate of Corporation Tax will reduce by 2% in April 2014, rather than the 1% cut originally announced. This will take the main rate from 24% currently, to 23% in April 2013 and then to 21% in April 2014. The small companies’ rate of Corporation Tax remains unchanged at 20%, but this news will be welcomed by larger companies and those paying tax at the marginal rate.

06 December 2012

Small business rates relief extended until April 2014

on Thursday, 06 December 2012.

In a move that will be welcomed by small businesses, the temporary doubling of Small Business Rates Relief has been extended for a further 12 months to April 2014.
