Tax Planning: 2023/24

The fast pace of new tax legislation and developments seems relentless. Nevertheless, it remains incumbent on tax advisers to stay up-to-date with changes, to ensure that tax advice given to clients remains current and relevant, and that tax planning opportunities are not missed.

Furthermore, the government and HMRC continue to clamp down on what they regard as tax avoidance and unacceptable tax planning. This can have unfortunate and unexpected consequences for taxpayers, and is also likely to have unpleasant implications for 'enablers' of defeated tax avoidance.

There is still much that can legitimately be done to save or reduce tax. Indeed, many clients of professional firms expect prompt, appropriate and up-to-date advice from their advisers on minimising tax liabilities. Tax Planning aims to point out some of the areas where such planning opportunities still exist.
