UK Tax Environment:

In UK, everyone who has income must pay tax for the gorvernment through tax department, and the tax authority of UK called HMRC, which stand for Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs. The main responsibilities of HMRC is making sure that the money is available to fund the UK’s public services and for helping families and individuals with targeted financial support, for safeguarding the flow of money to the Exchequer through our collection, compliance and enforcement activities1. In order to do that, HMRC will collect the tax from both of individual (includes UK residence and non UK residence) and corporation, which do the business in UK through direct and indirect tax. HMRC works with help from the UK Treasury so The Tax System of UK can run smoothly. Treasury has responsibility in imposing and collecting the tax.

Income Tax:

Income Tax is a tax on income. Not all income is taxable and you’re only taxed on ‘taxable income’ above a certain level. Even then, there are other reliefs and allowances that can reduce your Income

Tax bill – and in some cases mean you’ve no tax to pay.

Types of Income:

Income tax charged on income, which is amount of money you earn from employment, self- employment, rental income, pension income, interest on savings, or money from shares.6 Each tax payer will have a different amount of income money, so they will have different taxable amount and tax payable amount. However, in order to caculate the income tax of tax payers.

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 HMRC will caculate through 3 types of income which are saving income,non-saving income and dividend, and it is applied for everyone who pays income tax.

Savings income: savings income is all the income from the investment. It can be the interest on loan and bank or building society accounts.

Non-savings income: Non savings income includes three types of income that employment income (the income from employment), trading income (the income from trades and profession) and the property income (the income from renting out property)

Dividend income: dividend income is the income which related in the investment on dividend.

Tax rate 2011/2012 by tax band:

Each tax payer will have a different amount of income money, so they will have different taxable amount and tax payable amount, the more money tax payer can earn, the more tax they will pay. However, the way to calculate income tax of individual will base on the tax rates and taxable bands which are fixed by HMRC:





Starting rate for

£0 – £2,560


£0- £2,790

savings: 10%*

Basic rate: 20%

£0 – £35,000



Higher rate: 40%

£35,001 – £150,000


£32,011- £150,000

Additional rate: 50%

Over £150,000

Over £150,000


45% from 6 April

Over £150,000

Over £150,000

Over £150,000


Figure 2: Income Tax rates and taxable bands

The 10 per cent starting rate applies to savings income only. If, after deducting your Personal Allowance from your total income liable to Income Tax, your non-savings income is above this limit.

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1then the 10 per cent starting rate for savings will not apply. Non-savings income includes income from employment, profits from self-employment, pensions, income from property and taxable benefits.7

From this figure above, in the year 2011-2012, we can see that if the income of an individual from £0 to £2,560, they need to pay 10% of their income for taxation and it is only apply for the savings income. The income from £0 to £35,000 incur the basic rate of taxation with 20% and from £35,001 to £150,000, individual must pay 40% in their income for the taxation. The addition rate with 50% will impose in person which earn over £150,000, and as a rule of HMRC that when we caculate the non-saving income, we will apply the rate from the basic rate 20%.

PAYE (Pay As You Earn):

The Pay as You Earn (PAYE) system is a method of paying income tax and national insurance contributions. Your employer deducts tax and national insurance contributions from your wages or occupational pension before paying you your wages or pension.”.

Using the PAYE system, the money that you will receive is your net profit, before paying for taxation and other expenses as national insurance contribution and so on.

Capital Gain Tax:

Capital gain is the profits that an investor receive when they sells their asset or shares for a price that is higher than the purchase price. Capital gains tax is caculated on the gain or profit when they sell, give away or otherwise dispose of something.

For example: Mr. Alex is an investor, in 2000 he bought some shares in company A with the price at £5,000, in 2012 he sell those shares with the price at £25,000. Caculating we can see that he just made a gain around £20,000, so as a rule of HMRC Alex has to pay on his gain which is £20,000.

The rates for capital gain tax as follows 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014:

Corporation Tax:

Corporation Tax is a tax on the taxable profits of limited companies and other organizations including clubs, societies, associations and other unincorporated bodies.

the company makes and may change on 1 April each year.

For individual, HMRC divide into types of individual which is UK residence, and non UK residence.

UK Residence:

Who is UK Residence?

People who come from another country, and they are in the UK for 183 days or more in a tax year, they will be resident in the UK for that tax year (from 6th April of this year to 5th April of the next year), or people who visit to the UK averaging at least 91 days per tax year.

How UK Resident paying Tax to HMRC?

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 For the UK residents, they have to pay tax which called income tax based on their income, those income includes both of the income arising in the UK and income arising overseas.

For example, there is a man named Tom, and he is a UK residence. He has doing business in UK and he also has worked in Vinamilk which is company located in Vietnam, so once a year he has to pay income tax for HMRC in UK based on the the income he collects in UK and also the income he has from the job in Vinamilk located in Vietnam.

Non UK Residence:

Who is non UK Residence?

Excepting for some cases that I mention in the UK residents section, it is non UK residents, so non UK Residence is a person who present in the UK for less than 183 days during the tax year or they visit to the UK averaging less than 91 days per tax year non UK residents.

How non UK Residence paying Tax to HMRC?

The non UK residentces only have to pay the income tax to HMRN based on their income which generate in UK.

For example, Van is a business woman; and she is Vietnamese. She has a business trip to UK in 2 months which is about 60 days so she is non UK residence because her stay is less than 183 days. In those 2 months, Van earned 1000 pounds from doing business in UK, and 10 million VND from her business in Vietnam, so she has to pay income tax for HMRC in UK just bases on 1000 pounds that she collected in UK, she does not have to Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 pay tax on 10 million VND from her business in Vietnam because she is non UK Residence.

As a we know that, currently I’m a tax practitioner of L&T consultancy, and at present my client is Mrs Julia, so my role and responsibility here is giving and advicing her some information which related to her tax resposibility. In the previous task, I already have explained all the basic information of UK Tax Environment such as the UK Tax Framework, parties involved, UK Tax legislation, the tax rate of the year 2011-2012, type of tax, how to caculate the tax, the penalty, so now my job in this section is finding down how much Julia’s the relevant income, expenses and allowances for the year 2011-2012.

Julia’s Relevant Income:

Income is an amount of money that a person can earn from their employment or their investment or both of that. In the UK tax system, the income is devided into three types of income which is non- saving income, saving income, and dividend income. Non-savingincome is came from employment income, trading income, property income, saving income is all the money that can be earned from the interest such as interest on loan, bank, or building society accounts, and finally dividend income is the money come from inverstment on share.

1. Trading Income

According to scenario, Julia’s trading profits for the final two periods of trading were as follow21:


Year ended 30 April 2011


Two-month period ended 30 June 2011


Overview Capital Allow

On 1 May 2010, the tax written down value of the capital allowances main pool (general pool) was £13,200, based on the figure above that Julia will receive 20% of tax written down value which is £2,640. Therefore, the trading profit of Julia in year ended 30 April 2011 is £95,560.

  • 21 Source: Scenario Page 4, paragraph 5
  • 22 Source: Taxation Lecture Session 6 – Slide Number 19.
  • 23 Caculation: £13,200 x 20% (belong to main pool) = £2,640
  • 24 Trading profit year ended 30 April 2011: £98,200 – £2640 = £95,560

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 From 20% the capital allowance which belong to main pool, we have the year balance after the capital allowance is £10,560.

However, because on 21 May 2011, Julia pruchased computer equipment for £3,600, and all the items included in the main pool were sold for £7,700 on 30 June 2011, so the capital allowance of two-month period ended 30 June 2011 will be reduce at £6,460, so we have the trading profit of Julia in two- month period ended 30 June 2011 is £10,140.

After minusing the capital allowances we have the total trading profit of Julia is 105,700. In addition, according to the scenario, Julia has unused overlap profits brought forward of 41,700, this amount of money will reliefs Julia’s Trading Profit, so trading profit of Julia after reliefing is £64,000

. Salary Income:

According to scenario that Julia was paid a Salary of 15,100 per month by Unicorn plc, and she worked for Unicorn pls as a marketing director from 1 August, 2011. According to HMRC of the tax year which begin from 6 April and ending 5 April next year, and because the salary is paid on the last day of each calendar month, so the salary of Julia of the tax year2011-2012 will be caculated from 1 August, 2011 to 31 March, 2012 which is about 8 months. Therefore, the total salary of Julia in the tax year 2011 – 2012 is £120,800

3. Property Income:

According to the scenario, Julia owns 2 properties. The income and the allowable expenditure for

her two properties for the tax year 2011 – 2012 are as follows:

Property 1

Property 2




Allowable expenditure



“Expenditure on buying, creating or improving a business asset that you keep to earn the profits of your business is capital expenditure. In other words, allowable expenditure is an amount of money

  • 33 HMRC Websites, n.d: Capital expenditure

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 which is used to maintain your properties, without the allowable expenditure your property maybe cannot run the business to earn profit, so the government allows the property owner some money to maintain the property and it called allowable expenditure. The owner of property will pay tax for the gorvernment after minusing the allowablw expeenditure.

The Allowable expenses may include:

  • rents, rates, insurance, ground rents etc
  • property repairs and maintenance
  • renewals – although you cannot claim these and capital allowances or the 10% wear and tear allowance
  • interest and other finance charges
  • legal, management and other professional fees
  • costs of services provided, including wages
  • other property expenses

For the property 1, we see that the amount of money from income is lower than the allowable expenditure by £3,10035, which is also considered as loss for Julia in the property 1, according to HMRC that any rental business loss is automatically carried forward and set off against rental business profits of the following year36, so the loss at £3,100 of the property 1 will be carried forward to the next year to caculate the income of this property.

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 For the property 2, the income was £7,200 and the allowable expenditure was £2,100 so the income of Julia from this property is £5,10037

In general, from the properties that Julia owns, in the tax year 2011 – 2012, she just has income from the second property which is £5,100.

4. Interest from buliding Society38:

During the tax year 2011 – 2012 Julia receive building society interest of £8,96039, but this amount of money is the net income40 so tralating to gross income by 20%, the gross income of Julia from building society is £11,20041

5. Dividend42:

According to the scenario, in 2011-2012 Julia also received an amount of money from dividend at £6,480, but this amount of money is also after tax so tranlating to before tax by 10%, the amount of money Julia can received from her dividend is £7,20043

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 Nearly everyone who lives in the UK is entitled to an Income Tax Personal Allowance. This is the amount of income you can receive each year without having to pay tax on it. Depending on your circumstances, you may also be able to claim certain other allowances.46

Personal Allowance 2011-2012:


2011 to 2012 tax year

Personal Allowance


Age 65 to 74 – Personal Allowance


Age 75 and over – Personal Allowance


Figure: Personal Allowance 2011-201247

If you’re over 65- If your income(less deductions) is between £25,400 and £100,000 in the 2012 to 2013 tax year, your Personal Allowance goes down by £1 for every £2 of income above £25,400, to a minimum Personal Allowance of £8,105.

If your income is over £100,000- For every £2 your income is above £100,000, your Personal Allowance goes down by £1. If your income is high enough, this can reduce your Personal Allowance to zero.

As the income of Julia which I already mention above, the figure of income is £208,400. From the infomation of “If your income is over £100,000” section above that if your income is over £100,000, your Personal Allowance will be reduced by half of the amount – £1 for every £2. Caculating to 2012, Julia is 42 years old so her personal allowance is £7,475, and her income is more than £100,000 so her Personal Allowance is reduced by half of the amount – £1 for every £2, we have the caculation:

46HMRC Websites,n.d.: Personal Allowance:

47Source: Taxation Lecture – Session 2 – Slide number 22 – Allowance for personal

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 £7,475 – (£208,400 – £100,000)/2 = £ 7,475 – (£108,400/2) = – £46,725.

As the caculation above that the personal allowance of Julia is negative, it means the Personal Allowance of Julia is zero.

Julia’s Expenses:

Expenses are the costs that you pay out in the course of earning business profits and which you can claim for. You can’t claim for non-business or personal items. Buying or improving capital items, such as machinery, which last for several years, is not a business expense for tax purposes but you may still be able to claim for them as long as they are related to your business.48

As the scenario that there is no mention about the expenses that Julia had to pay out so we can consider that the expense of Julia is zero.

Summary, we have the table of income, allowance and expenses of Julia below:




Trading Income




Salary Income




Property Income




Building Society Interest








Premium Bond Prize


















1. Premium Bond Prize

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 As the information from the scenario that on 2 Octorber 2011, Julia received a premium bond prize of £100, and according to HMRC that a premium bond prize is not taken into accounts for inheritance tax purposes49, so Julia does not have to pay any tax for this £100

2.Tax Benefit:

Removal Expenses:

As the scenario that during August 2011, Unicorn plc paid £11,600 towards Julia’s removal expenses, and according to HmRC that there is £8,000 of removal expenses and benefits will be exempted50 so for the removal expenses Julia just have to pay tax on £3,60051.

 Upload Your Assignment

Beneficial Loan:

From 1 September, 2011 to 5 April, 2012, which is around 7 months Unicorn plc provided Julia a loan with free interest of £33,000. It means Julia borrows £33,000 from the company and she does not have to pay any interest. However, at the same with that period time if Julia borrows that amount of money outside, it would charge Julia 4% of interest52, so because Julia borrowed that from the company so she can save 4% of interest each month, so after 7 months, the amount of money that she can save was £77053

Free Meals:

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 During the period from 1 August 2011 to 5 April 2012, Julia was provided free meal from Unicorn plc’s canteen, and the total cost of these meals was £1,34054. It’s a benefit of the company for Julia, and she does not have to pay any tax for this benefit, because according to HMRC that there is no tax charge on the provision of meals for directors or employees if the meal is provided in a canteen55

Vehicle Benefit:

From the scenario that during the period from 1 Octorber 2011 to the end of tax year2011-2012, Unicorn plc provided Julia a diesel-powered motocar which has a list price of £14,400 with an official CO2 emission rate of 149 grams per kilimeter. The taxable benefit of Julia about vehicle benefit will be caculated based on the list price of her vehicle and the rate at which the car emits carbon dioxide. From Mrsalvage Website56, we have the table below:

CO2 emissions

Appropriate percentage


Petrol %

Diesel %

Up to 75




































Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment































225 and above



Based on the table and the information below, the appropriate percentage of Julia’s vehicle will be 22% because Julia’s vehicle is a diesel-powered motocar. In addition, Julia used this motocar from 1 Octorber 2011 to 5 April 2012 which is about 6 months, so after caculating the vehicle benefit of Julia is £1,58457.

2. Taxable Amount:

As the information I have mentioned above that the relevant income of Julia includes trading income, salary income, property income, interest from building society, dividend and premium bond prize which is about £208,400. However, as I have explained above that Julia does not have to pay any tax for her premium bond prize, so in the taxable income I will minus £100 from premium bond prize, so after minusing the prize, Julia’s income is£208,30058.

57 Caculation: £14,400 x 22% x 6/12 = £1,584

58 Caculation: £208,400 – £100 = £208,300

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 In addition, I have caculated the taxable benefit of Julia which includes removal exepenses, benefical loan, and vehicle benefit. Therefore the total taxable benefit of Julia will be £5,95459, and all the taxable benefit will belong with the non-saving income of Julia.

Summary, we have the table of Julia’s tax amount below:








Trading Income

Interest from Building

3. Tax Liability:

According to the scenario that during the tax year 2011 – 2012, Julia made gift aid donation totalling £4,400 which is considered as net to national charities, so after tranlating to gross by 20%60, the gross of girt aid donation will be £5,50061. According to HMRC that Gift Aid is a way for charities to increase the value of monetary gifts from UK taxpayers by claiming back the basic rate tax paid by the donor on

the donation62, the Gift Aid Donation will not deducted in the tax structure, it is only used to expand tax rate band:



Starting rate for savings: 10%*


– £2,560

Basic rate: 20%


– £40,500

Higher rate: 40%

£40,501 – £155,500

Additional rate: 50%

Over £155,500

Additional rate: 45% from 6 April 2013


Figure: New Tax Rate by the Gift Aid Donation of Julia

Based on the new tax rate above, I will calculate the tax liability for Julia:

Non-Saving Income:

In order to caculating taxable of non-saving income, I have to minus personal allowance from non-

saving income. However, the personal allowance of Julia is zero63, so the taxable of non-savingincome

is £195,584. Therefore, we have the tax liability of non-saving income as follows:



Tax Liability










£45999, 6





£20177, 5

Total NSI


Total Tax Liability of NSI

£74277, 1

Saving Income:

Prepared by Le Tran Uyen Vy (Vivien) – Taxation Assignment 1 Because the non-saving income of Julia is over 10% limit which is the starting rate, so saving income of Julia will be caculated as non-saving income. Saving income of Julia is £11,200 is belong with the basic rate which is 20%, so the tax liability of saving income is £2,24064.

Dividend Income:

According to tax fix website 65 that the amount of money that Julia must pay as tax for her dividends depends on the total taxable income. For the tax year 2011 -2012, if the total taxable income is below to £150,000 then the tax rate for dividend will be 32.5%. If the total taxable income is more than £150,000 then the tax rate for dividend will be 42.5%. In addition, HMRC also applies 10% tax rate for dividend if the total income is belong with the basic rate. For Julia, her total taxable income is more than £150,000, so HMRC will apply 42.5% tax rate for her dividend, after caclating her dividend tax liability is £3,06066.
