Succession planning for owner managed businesses

  • This webinar looks at the key tax considerations in respect of succession planning for owner-managed businesses. It may be that the founder’s family are ready to “step up” and take the business forward. Alternatively, the next generation of the family may not have the interest or aptitude, or the owner-managed wants to reap the reward of their efforts and realise the value they have created. In either case, whether passing the business to a new generation of the family, or selling it to a third party, early tax planning is crucial.


Construction Industry Scheme part 2
  • Why CIS is important – The CIS helps ensure the correct and prompt payment of tax for work done by the subcontractors. Any failure to operate the CIS can result in large penalties and HMRC opening a wider investigation into a company.
    What we will cover - An introduction to the Construction Industry Scheme and key things to consider. Why is it relevant - There is a requirement to register for CIS if you are considered a mainstream contractor or a deemed contractor. Mainstream contractors are businesses that carry out construction work or supply labour for carrying out construction work. Deemed contractors are businesses that do not carry out construction work as part of their ordinary business but spend above certain thresholds on construction operations. Businesses commonly treat certain works incorrectly due to complex legislation and tax rules or don’t consider the CIS at all where their main business is not construction.
