    I added back the Salary for Harrison and his wife. Added back £600 for the goods he took. Was debating on £800 though, but decided against it because he contributed £200.

    I deducted the cost of the land for the IBA. But I time apportioned the 4% by 10/12 because it was a 10 month period...not sure if that was right??

    I did that!

    280000
    (46000)
    ( 5000)
    ___________
    229000*4% = (9160/12)*10= 7633

    Right? I hope so!

    Kj - I did almost everything like you, did you deduct land preperation costs too, becasue their associated with the land.

    Fiorellino - You do apportin IBA my friend!
  • cs_1988cs_1988 Well-Known Registered Posts: 231
    YAYAYAYAY Staffz nice one! Its reassuring to see answers the same as yours!!!

    Did anyone else get something like 792 for the shares?
  • kjg-kjkjg-kj Feels At Home Registered Posts: 68
    I didn't deduct the land prep costs, in our Kaplan book it says qualifying costs include costs of preparing the land ie levelling, tunnelling and drainage.

    My book definitely said that IBA and WDA are both time apportioned if the period concerned was not 12 months and FYA wasn't.

    Also added extra 600, to make up cost of aircon units.

    Disallowed wife's wages altogether, as wasn't a business cost, but left his in -argh!!! I guess that is key, as without it there are no profits so cannot show that I can work out the split year 19% & 20% - will it be a straight fail for section 1???

    Sorry I meant to reply this as well earlier. I understand what you are saying about £600 rather than £800 but does it really matter that he paid money for it? Isn't just the amount of the sale (which is £800) that goes through P&L rather than cash flow.
    I don't know. I am just thinking out loud here because I deducted £800

    thats exactly what i thought :D

    i think the answer came to 7800 after apportionment (10/12)

    There wasnt a split 19% 20% was there.

    End of section two was a ten month cap. So April, May, June, July, August, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec, and Jan = 10months, all at 20% corp tax.

    They also gave three indexation factors to confuse us. i Used 17%
  • ma1thewma1thew Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    why was the taxt split between 2 years.
    it was 10 months from april untill january so where does the split come in?
  • Ash1711Ash1711 Feels At Home Registered Posts: 26
    did anyone create a seperate pool for the short life assets? i did and i dont know if this is correct or not:confused1:
  • StaffzStaffz Feels At Home Registered Posts: 40
    I agree, section 2 was the April to Jan period, was it not? Jeez, no wonder I am rubbish at exams, can't even remember 3 hours later!!!
  • bennyboy88bennyboy88 New Member Registered Posts: 8
    I didn't deduct the cost of preparing the land. i remember seeing somewhere that it is a qualifying cost.
    As for the shares i just remember that i had an indexation allowance of £91...?!
    The airconditioning units in the first one, i added on the £800 in which they were worth? didnt have a clue what to do for this one!
    The written questions, i dont feel like i wrote enough! oh well!!!
  • kjg-kjkjg-kj Feels At Home Registered Posts: 68
    When I was doing the corp tax I used 30% with marginal relief, but I suppose it depended on your other figures from the previous questions. I had a taxable profits for the company of seven hundred and something thousand
  • ma1thewma1thew Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    i got 9500 for iba
    285000 X 0.04 X (10/12)

    is this correct?

    wasnt section 2 taxed at 30% less marginal relief?
  • DJUKDJUK New Member Registered Posts: 5
    ash1711 I created a separate pool for the short lifeassets
  • FiorellinoFiorellino Feels At Home Registered Posts: 82
    corporation tax was at 30 % because Marginal Relief is given, am I right?
  • ma1thewma1thew Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    i got 700 and something thousand for the profit so i used marginal releif
  • StaffzStaffz Feels At Home Registered Posts: 40
    Yes, you nalways have a separate pool for S.L.A.- anything you intend to keep under 5 years I think, tho may be 3 - I always confuse those two! That's why accountant consult using books!

    Yes you are supposed to have a separate pool for SLA. And when an asset is not sold after 4 years it is moved to the general pool.

    For Section one I got:
    Capital Allowances £67564
    Scd D Case 1 profits £53216
    NIC contributions £2667.36
    PCTCT (?) £174076

    Section two I got:
    IBA £7633
    PCTCT £735664
    Tax Liability £207841

    I can only save 7 answers in my calculator, so not sure about the rest - and the labels might be wrong as well... but those are the numbers I put
  • cs_1988cs_1988 Well-Known Registered Posts: 231
    OH Crap ****

    I deducted marginal relief to, please tell me i didnt use 20%!!!!

    Dont think i did, i remember making sure the months were 07 for the formula!

    What corp tax figure did you get?
  • bennyboy88bennyboy88 New Member Registered Posts: 8
    i used 30% less marginal relief.

    i think my tax payable was around 200k in the end... i think!

    End of section 2, I just had one tax year, however, they were eligible for marginal relief I hope
  • cs_1988cs_1988 Well-Known Registered Posts: 231
    London Matt....Snap!

    Think we might have made a mistake in the IBA if land prep is allowable though!
  • ma1thewma1thew Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    LONDONMATT

    was it just the entertaining staff expendite that was not allowable in the other expenses info.
