Ok everybody taking PTC tomorrow - Please just place one snippet of (correct) information in this thread as a reminder - it may well help others focus on grey areas:

Mine is that the company car/fuel scale charge is restricted to 35%.

Wear and tear

!0% Wear and tear is only deductible from Furnished Property.

Remember to take rental income minus council tax and water rates (if paid by owner) before calculating 10%

Non-Wasting Chattels

If gross proceeds and cost of chattel are less than £6,000 it is exempt from capital gains tax (CGT)

If gross proceeds are greater than £6,000 and the cost is < £6,000 then your gain is LIMITED to 5/3 (Gross Proceeds - £6,000)

If gross proceeds are less than £6,000 but the cost is greater than £6,000 then you deem the gross proceeds as £6,000

If any of that is wrong let me know, I'm doing it off the top of my head to test myself.

Can you do a sample question on the 5/3 thingy???

Company Cars

Company cars taxable liability is calculated using the LIST price, not its market value when bought.

Additional Percentages calculated by Cars Emissions Less 140 and divide by 5 (eg 194g/km = (194-140)/5 = 8.8 = 8%)

Taxable Liability On Company Car = List Price x (15% + Additional Percentage + 3% If Diesel)

(MAXIMUM capital contribution deductible from this is £5,000)

If company pays for private fuel costs it is calculated by:-

Base figure for petrol x your percentage again

(ANY Contribution to private petrol paid by company by the individual is ignored)

Richard sells a painting for £8,000 in October 2008, he originally bought the painting for £3,500 in January 2004. Calculate his chargeable gain:

Gross Proceeds - £8,000
Cost - (£3,500)
Chargeable Gain - £4,500

Due to the rule coming into place we have to see if the gain is limited therefore

5/3 (8,000 - 6000) = £3,333

Therefore the chargeable gain is £3,333 not £4,500

Hope this helps,
