    IHT - nill rate band trusts dont always work

    http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/tax-adv...&in_page_id=78

    I wonder if anyone has a view on this, where death of wife makes her contribution to family home as nill in consideration

    If instead of dying, had she divorced the husband - she would have received half of the house if not more. HMRC has got its head stuck up its SACK BIDE !

      I am not sure how the Dr put a Tennants in Common Trust in place but he was ill advised. Normally a 'Deed of Trust' shares everything in the estate equally and a 'Nil Rate Band Discretionary Trust' receives on one spouse passing away 1/2 the estate's worth or £300,000. This paper value is loaned back to the estate as though nothing had changed. When the surviving spouse passes away the IHT calcualtion against the estate does not incluse the value which is in Trust, it may be smaller than originally becuase the survivor lived a long time and needed to use those funds, but what is in the Trust now passes to the named beneficaries. This is a well tried and tested IHT efficient Trust and avoids the problem of 'contributions'. I wrote an article last year and to keep it simple I used the 'Tenants in Common' to demonstate the property ownership angle but as I said in practice a 'Deed of Trust' inherent in both wills resolvs ownership of the estate and avoids having to micro manage all the accounts and savings to contain 1/2 the moveable asset. Hope that helps. Regards Peter

          • VAT on professional fees - commercial to residential planning application
            Dan_Manchester
            Evening all,

            We have recently submitted a planning application to convert a small commercial unit in a couple of new apartments. As I understand it the building work will be zero-rated for VAT as we are creating dwellings were none were previously.

            The planners have requested...

          • Short tax return
            samsam
            I have one letting property. I have always used a short tax return which has been fine for giving totals of rent and costs inc mortgage interest. Now that the allowance for mortgage interest is reducing by 25% every year how do I show the figures? Whichever tax return I use, do I do the calculations...

            Apologies, I failed to include Theresa's link:

            Just done my draft submission: In a state of shock regarding estimated payment required 31/01/2018.

            Sorry artful, I don't understand why you are asking me that. I haven't checked against Thersa's document (what is that?). I just want to know how I show the reduced mortgage interest claim against profit.
            Thanks

            When you checked against Theresa's document here, what did you conclude? What total profit & what total rental income please?

            Alice88

            I need some advice so please for help.

            My husband has bought a house (BTL), the title and the mortgages are in his sole name.
            Then he has split the house 90%-10% (DoT) in my favor, the mortgage hasn't been change.

            If the property is registered under both names ( H & W) as " joint tenants" at Land Registry, both tenants have legal entitlement to the property. The Tax Office will assume the joint income is shared 50:50 and each person must declare 50% income in their tax return. The Tax Office...

          • Beneficial Ownership Change & SDLT
            TRQUIZ
            Hi,

            Please can someone clarify what HMRC is referring to with the statement below
            If the larger share is given outright as a gift

            If you take a bigger share but don’t pay anything in return, there’s no ‘consideration’ given including taking on liability for a mortgage. You...

            Stu2222
            Just picking up on this thread. I'm still not clear on the consideration point where there is a mortgage that both parties are jointly responsible for. Can the DoT be written such to confirm that only net equity is being transferred, therefore no consideration and no SDLT? The 3% additional rate is...
