|If you were born on or before 25 September 1956 you could receive between £250 and £600 to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a ‘Winter Fuel Payment’.
The amount you receive will include a ‘Pensioner Cost of Living Payment’. This is between £150 and £300. You will only get this extra amount in winter 2022 to 2023. This is in addition to any Cost-of-Living Payment you get with your benefit or tax credits.
You will get your Winter Fuel Payment automatically (you do not need to claim) if you are eligible and either:
If you do not receive either of these, or if you live abroad, you may need to make a claim.
If you’ve got a Winter Fuel Payment before, you do not need to claim again unless you’ve deferred your State Pension or moved abroad.
In addition to the Winter Fuel Support, all UK households will receive a grant which will automatically reduce their energy bills by a total of £400 during the coming winter period.
The grant will automatically be credited to energy suppliers’ accounts in equal instalments of £66 from October – November 2022 and in instalments of £67 from December 2022 to March 2023.
|Make sure your payment will reach HMRC’s bank account by the payment deadline. You may have to pay a surcharge if you do not pay on time. If you are not sure of the actual payment deadline you can use the VAT payment deadline calculator to work out how much time to allow.
To make payments on the same or next day
To make payments within three working days
If the deadline falls on a weekend or bank holiday, your payment must arrive in HMRC’s bank account on the last working day before (unless you pay by Faster Payments).
|Although finance costs, predominantly loan interest, are now disallowed as an expense that can be utilised to reduce taxable rental income, these charges do qualify for a tax credit limited to 20% basic rate Income Tax. For example, if your loan/mortgage interest amounts to £10,000 this cannot be used to reduce your rental income. It will simply reduce your Income Tax bill by £2,000 (£10,000 x 20%).
However, there are three hoops that these claims need to jump through. The tax deduction is worked out as the lower of:
It is the final condition that can catch taxpayers out and deny relief. For example, if the majority of earnings are dividend income, and other earnings in total are lower than the annual personal tax allowance, currently £12,570, then no relief for finance charges can be claimed.
This could impact director shareholders of smaller companies with personal property income and finance costs, who many have adopted the high-dividend low-salary approach to taking remuneration from their company
This is a further justification for ongoing tax planning to ensure that all options are considered and reviewed to minimise overall tax payments.
This so-called mini-budget actually morphed into a series of major announcements by the new Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng.
The expected reversal of the 1.25% increase in National Insurance contributions in the current tax year was confirmed and will apply from 6 November 2022.
A summary of the main tax changes that will impact the liability of individuals and business owners from April 2023 are:
• A reduction in the Income Tax basic rate from 20% to 19%.
• The cancellation of the proposed increase in Corporation Tax. The rate will now remain at 19%.
• The withdrawal of the Health and Social Care Levy of 1.25%.
• The tax rates on dividend income for 2022-23 were increased to mirror the increases in NIC rates (1.25 percentage points). In line with the withdrawal of the Health and Social Care Levy from April 2023, the rates of dividend tax from April 2023 will be:
a) The first £2,000 of dividends will remain tax-free.
b) Dividends that form part of the basic rate Income Tax Band will taxed at 7.5%
c) Dividends that form part of the higher rate Income Tax Band will be taxed at 32.5%.
d) Dividends that form part of the additional rate Income Tax Band will be taxed at 38.1%.
• The Chancellor announced a permanent increase in the SDLT nil rate band to £250,000 (from £125,000) with immediate effect from the date of his announcement, 23 September 2022.
• Prior to the announcement, no SDLT was payable for first-time buyers making a purchase of up to £300,000. This limit has now been increased by £125,000 with immediate effect to £425,000. The first-time buyer’s relief also increases the nil-rate threshold to £425,000 (£300,000 prior to 23 September 2022) for first-time buyers of properties costing up to £625,000 (£500,000 prior to 23 September 2022). There is no relief available for first-time buyers spending more than £625,000 on a property. There are a number of requirements that must be met in order to qualify for the relief.
• The present Annual Investment Allowance that provides a 100% tax deduction for qualifying capital investments is now permanently capped at expenditure of £1m. This cap was due to reduce to £200,000 from 31 March 2023.
