Roles of a Tax Manager

| June 19, 2015

Assignment breif:
You are to assume that you are working as a Tax Manager, working for a firm of accountants.

A new client, Nick White, has asked your firm to act as tax advisers to both himself and his wife, Caroline.

Nick is self-employed and his wife is employed as his assistant. She answers the telephone, makes appointments, produces invoices and chases late paying clients. She would also expect to help out in times of emergency, in whatever capacity she can, to ensure that deadlines are met.

His taxable profits have been steadily rising over the last few years, but he expects that they have now stabilised at £115,000 per annum. This is before paying £5,000 salary to Caroline.

Nick has asked for advice on whether to incorporate his business. In particular, he requires details of:
1.    the general advantages and disadvantages, given his level of profit.
2.    the advantages and disadvantages of setting the company up with equal shareholdings with his wife. She would be registered as company secretary.
3.    tax-efficient profit withdrawal. He wishes to leave £30,000 per year in the business to ensure he can afford up to date equipment, for emergencies and expansion if necessary.

Nick has asked for a meeting to discuss the matter, but in the meantime would like a preliminary report setting out the general factors to be taken into account.

1.    to prepare a report for Nick, answering (generally) his queries as above.
2.    to also include within the report details of any additional information, together with reasons, that you require before you would be able to finally advise him as to a prospective company’s shareholding and efficient profit extraction.

Assignment Guidance Notes
