Budget Special

“Fiscal Phil” Budget Special – with Helen Hargreaves – 014

A Payroll Podcast Budget Special episode, recorded just 24 hours following the budget speech delivered by Philip Hammond on 29th October 2018 with Helen Hargreaves, Associate Director of Policy at the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals. 

We sit down to discuss the key points from the 106-page budget document that will could affect payroll and tax.

In the last Budget before we exit the EU, the Chancellor Philip Hammond appeared to relish the delivery of his 2018 Budget speech.  His task this year is not an enviable one as the ‘deal or no deal’ debate continues with many questions unanswered.  The economic forecast from the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) was positive; with wages growing at the fastest pace in almost a decade and we have been assured that we should expect sustained real wage growth in each of the next five years. The OBR also confirmed significant improvement in our public finances with national debt having peaked in 2016-17. This means a new path for public spending: “Fiscal Phil says Fiscal Rules OK”.  We take a deep dive into all of the announcements made and summarise it for you to digest audibly at your payroll leisure!

Budget Subjects include:

  • Tax rates and thresholds, Income tax, Devolved income tax and Company cars, vans and fuel
  • Apprentices and Transferring levy funds and Contributions to funding
  • National Insurance contributions, Limits and thresholds
  • Draft National Insurance contributions Bill
  • National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage
  • Off-payroll working in the private sector
  • Parental bereavement leave and pay
  • Pensions and Savings, Lifetime Allowances and the starting rate for savings
  • Individual Savings Account (ISA) annual subscription limits
  • Child Trust Funds and Improving NS&I’s offer to customers
  • Pension Dashboards and other Digital tool proposals
  • Tax avoidance and evasion
  • Protecting your taxes in insolvency
  • Management capability and Backing entrepreneurs
  • Universal Credits and Transitioning onto Universal Credits
  • Banning pensions cold calling

We hope you enjoy this “Fiscal Phil” Budget Special episode of The Payroll Podcast!  If you know anyone else who works in payroll, then please, share this episode with your friends and get them to subscribe today!

Rural Tax & Accounting with Old Mill

The Rural Tax & Accounting Podcast: Effective Planning for Farming Diversification

Rural Tax & Accounting Podcast: Effective Planning for Farming Diversification.

Hosted by Nick Day of JGA Recruitment with Old Mill Accountants and Financial Planners, this is a special edition Rural Tax & Accounting Podcast!

Brought to you by Nick Day of JGA Recruitment, host of The Payroll Podcast, comes this one-off Rural Tax & Accounting Podcast Special.  Featuring Catherine Vickery (CTA) – Rural Services, Tax and  Mark Seager (FCCA) – Rural Services from Old Mill Accountants and Financial Planners, we discuss effective rural tax and accounting planning in relation to farming diversification projects.

With many farmers having to think laterally to survive and with farm diversification becoming increasingly commonplace I am excited to find out more about some of the challenges they face.  In fact, more than half of England’s 57,000 farms have diversified in some form or another according to new figures released by Defra.

Of course, diversification can also bring with it opportunities – particularly through additional revenues!  However, these can come with various tax consequences and so it is important that landowners and farmers are made aware of the possible tax implications that may arise.

Farming often brings unique tax reliefs and the tax rules within the sector are complex and constantly changing, and diversification makes that no easier.

However, in this special podcast, Catherine and Mark help us to navigate through the diversification traps by highlighting the considerations rural businesses need to be aware of before they embark on a new diversification project.

Whether you are considering the conversion of buildings into a bed & breakfast, opening a farm shop, hosting a fishing event or develop solar or wind power, this Podcast will help you to discover where the invaluable tax reliefs exist.
