Tax Simplification for Short Terms Business Visitors

HMRC are consulting on ways to simplify the tax treatment of short-term business visitors from the foreign branch of a UK company, to ensure the UK is an attractive location for business headquarters.

The consultation considers potential changes to the PAYE arrangements under which UK employers need not operate PAYE for employees of their overseas subsidiaries on short stays in the UK. This treatment does not currently apply to visits to the UK by employees from overseas branches of UK companies

The consultation proposes two broad options:

  • Extending the UK workday rule from 30 to 60 days.
  • Introducing a new tax exemption for short-term visitors from overseas branches.

We are still awaiting the promised consultation on the taxation of trusts announced in the Autumn 2017 Budget. However, in the meantime, HMRC has updated their guidance on how different types of trust income are taxed, what management expenses and reliefs can be deducted, and understanding the tax pool.

Please contact us on 01295 477 250 alternatively you can email hello@progresswithassureuk.co.uk , if you are considering setting up a trust or wish to discuss estate planning more generally.
