David Pett: Disguised Remuneration and the Loan Charge - 1st Edition


7th September 2020



This work explains the practical application of a body of tax legislation that was first enacted in 2011, and that has been amended or re-enacted in most subsequent years. The legislation has had a devastating impact on many of the more than 50,000 participators in the schemes, who have ended up much worse off than if they had never entered into the scheme in the first place, even though in reality they often had no choice but to do so if they wanted to accept the remunerative work on offer.
 
Although formally headed "Employment income provided through third parties", the scope is in reality much wider and can give rise to charges to tax and NIC even if no employment income is received by the employee. The charge also extends to close company directors and even to self-employed contractors.
 
  • background to, scope of, and application of the disguised remuneration rules;
  • year-by-year development of the legislation since 2011;
  • calculation of charges on employees and traders;
  • exclusions from those charges;
  • avoiding the traps;
  • background to, and application of, the 2019 loan charge;
  • knock-on effect of that levy.

 

The House of Lords described the legislation as "extremely complex and beyond the scope of most business people to decide whether or not it applies to them". This work is aimed squarely at professional advisers and aims to bring clarity to what Keith Gordon describes in the foreword as a clear contender for the worst legislation ever enacted.
