Our employment tax experts Laura Parr and Mick Verney are hosting a series of free seminars across Birmingham, Derby and Nottingham. The seminar will provide you with up to date information and practical advice relating to employment tax.
Breakfast will be served on arrival from 8:00am, followed by the seminar which will begin at 8.30am until approximately 10:00am, when further tea and coffee will be provided. Please advise us of any dietary requirements when booking.
This seminar will cover a variety of topics including:
Business travel and place of work – As work practices change, businesses develop and technology enables more people to work from home, how does that impact on HMRC’s interpretation of what constitutes a ‘normal workplace’ and ‘business related travel’. Can an employee have more than one workplace? When do HMRC accept that an employee is home based? What does ‘Area Based’ actually mean? These questions, and many more, will be answered during the presentation.
IR35 Intermediaries (off payroll) legislation – For many private sector businesses this will be the biggest change to their Employment Tax processes for years, and with change comes risk. It is essential that any employer who is caught by the new rules considers their risk, and, introduces new processes in advance of the 6th April. We will provide an overview of who is responsible for managing and ensuring that the complex new rules are followed, some hints on best practice and what could happen if those processes fail.
Employee pension contributions salary sacrifice arrangements – A small number of salary sacrifice arrangements remain that can deliver savings for both employers and employees. An employee pension salary sacrifice arrangement remains the simplest to implement and starts to deliver savings as soon as it is implemented. Those savings recur year on year without any significant additional work. We will detail the issues that need to be considered, and the potential savings that can be generated for your business.
Changes from 6th April 2020 and Employment Tax updates from the Budget – There are already a number of known changes coming into effect from the 6th April, including changes to the benefit calculations for electric and low emission vehicles, NIC on termination payments and the NIC Employment Allowance. We will also flag any Employment Tax announcements arising from the expected Budget.
