PTC - done

Hi everyone,

How did you go with PTC exam today? What do you think about it?

I think it was not too bad. I am sure I have done some mistakes but overall it was quite a nice paper.

BUT..As soon as I left the room, I have realised I'd made a stupid mistake in calculation (stupid calculator!!!!!). The working on paper is correct ( I hope) only the answer is wrong and I have carried it on .... :crying: Can I fail for it? Do I lose many marks for it? :crying::crying:

    sure that is a pretty minor mistake you will be fine!:tongue_smilie:

    i found it ok, few strange bits but just waffled on for those.....if you make one mistake and then it carries on they only mark you down for one so don't worry on that score.

    talk after 3:001_smile:

    I found the exam ok. I was able to answer all the questions.

    I have a few doubts, i will wait till 3 and then will post them and it would be great if any one could help put my mind at rest.

    I would be very surprised if I had failed, and normally after an exam I'm not this confident!

    Well the BBC says its three o clock so cant argue with that

    I wasnt sure if the child care was exempt, i put that it was?

    Also the captial gains on the clock destroyed by fire, i wasnt sure if it was exempt but then i saw that car was exempt so decided to include it as a captial gain
  • GreycowGreycow Feels At Home Posts: 83Registered
    I put the childcare as exempt as it is under £55 per week and processed the clock as a sale as he had actually benefitted

    I must admit I expected a harder paper as they were suggesting more woudl be put in to do with property due the simplification of capital gains.
  • Crazy ChickCrazy Chick Feels At Home Posts: 38Registered
    i put the car as exempt

    wasnt sure what to do about the pension payments..any ideas on that one?
  • Crazy ChickCrazy Chick Feels At Home Posts: 38Registered
    i put the childcare as a benefit

    the clock as chargeable

    nearly filled in the return on the wrong part - the holiday lettings page instead of the lettings
  • GreycowGreycow Feels At Home Posts: 83Registered
    I also put the car as exempt, with the pension i deducted the contributions from the salary as it was an occupational pension
  • alicemaylaraalicemaylara Trusted Regular Posts: 259Registered
    ignore empployers pension then employees was deducted from the employment income calculation....i think it was 4% of 40,500...1620

    did u use 3months instead of all 12?

    40k, 9months, 4%
    40.5, 3months, 4%
  • alicemaylaraalicemaylara Trusted Regular Posts: 259Registered
    I just looked on the HMRC website to try and work out what should have been done to the childcare.They talk a different language at the Revenue a swear! But i think if its over £55 a week then you tax on the excess but im not sure. Can anyone clarify?

    Im secretly annoyed that there was no PPR as i worked so hard on that element! Why do they never test the things i actually learn!
  • hanapospishanapospis Well-Known Posts: 111Registered
    She had 40K for 9 months and 42K for 3 monts (5% increase)

    40,000 annual so dont you have to divide by 12 and times by 9....
  • hanapospishanapospis Well-Known Posts: 111Registered
    I put the childcare as exempt as well..

    How did you deal with the paintings? I used the formula for part disposal.. is this right?

    What about the contribution towards the provision of the car? Did you take £1200 out of the cost of the car before calculating the percentage?

    It was a used asset so its the higher of market value at date provided -price paid or marvet value when 1st provided - benfits already assessed - price paid by employee....cant remember the figures but i think your calculation is only for new assets.

    shares =thats what i got :thumbup:

    Painting:thumbup:also

    40K for 9 months = 30K
    42K for 3 months = 10.5K

    tho total employment income = 40.5K. Is it right?

    No i think you take it after you calculate the benefit assessable...but shouldnt matter too much :)

    I can't remember the gain I had for the shares but I definitely had a gain.

    The music system I did Original cost less 20% less amount employee had paid to buy it. I actually charged two years usage at 20% as it was partly owned by the company for the tax year (not sure if two years was right.)

    I too apportioned the cost of the painting like you did.

  • GreycowGreycow Feels At Home Posts: 83Registered
    If you split it 40000 x 9/12 and 40500 x 3/12 both times by 4% the total figure is 1605 whereas 40500 x 4% is 1620 (which is how I calculated it) so I am hoping the for sake of 3 difference it will be ok
