Unit 19
I wish I can Jewels myself working on it too!
Hi guys,
I am working on above units I was confuse on the reimbursed amount incurred for entertaining customer where do I have to put it, I know that this is disallowable expences do I have to put it in the assessable benefits?
Any ideas, can you share please!
Many thanks in advance.0 
Can you post the question and then we may be able to help. I passed PTC in December but did not use Osborne so cannot check my books.... x0

Jewels  is it for an individual or a Ltd Co? Is it one of those matching exercises where you have to do a sum every time they do a share transaction?
Lyn, please give some context, is this employee expenses?0 
Here you go, hope it's the answer you need!

I got the same as you for the Shares and the Necklace but not for Holly Cottage. I had the gain for the whole period of £106,000 but he used it as his PPR for 5years and 7 months so I calculated an exempt gain and deleted it from the Total Gains on the Cottage.0 
The answer I posted was the actual one from Osbornes, so you've gone a little wrong I'm afraid! The answer to Holly Cottage is:
Task 2.1 Calculation of chargeable gains
£
Gain
Holly Cottage
Sale proceeds 156,000
Cost (40,000)
Cost of extension (10,000)
106,000
Hope this makes sense to you now!0 
I have not seen the question but passed this in December 2008.
When calculating the Assessable gain from the property make sure you dont forget to deduct your indexation allowance (Allowance for change in inflation since the purchase of the Asset):
Proceeds  156,000
Less Cost  (40,000)
Capex (eg Extension) (10,000)
Indexation Allowance: (xx,xxx)
______
Assessable Gain xx,xxx
x 18% xx,xxx  CGT
There doesnt seem to be any in this question according to the answer Mendy posted but a couple of people i know left this out in the exam.0 
Hi sammy isnt indexation for business tax not personal0

I dont understand this then. I know you said this is the answer from Osbournes but do you know why there isnt a reduction due to him living in it? As I thought that this was the case if it was classed as your PPR.0 
Hi Jewels,
Did you find out about the answer for Holly Cottage? I was doing a search on these forums and this thread came up. I have the same answer as you and worked out that he lived in the cottage for 5 years 7 months and worked out the exempt and chargeable gain from there.
I just wondered if you found out anything more?0
