Your personal tax review for the 2020/21 tax year

  • Insight

06 April 2020

As we enter a new tax year we understand, in these challenging times for both family life and business life, reviewing tax and finances may be one of the things that becomes more important to all of us. We've produced a personal tax review to help you to identify any tax planning opportunities and take any actions required.

Following the UK Budget announcement, there are also a number of personal tax changes to be aware of coming into effect from 6 April 2020, including:

  • An introduction of a 30 day window for the reporting and payment of capital gains tax (CGT) on the disposal of ‘second’ residential properties.
  • Further restrictions to the CGT principal private residence relief exemption.
  • Further restrictions for higher rate taxpayers for interest relief on the financing of residential property investments.
  • An increase in the level of the residence inheritance tax (IHT) nil rate band for deaths taking place in the 2020/21 tax year from £150,000 to £175,000.
  • A £90,000 increase in the income thresholds for tapering of pension contributions.
