Hello Nic

You need to calculate the benefit for assets made available for private use. It is calculated as 20% of the £1,000 and then pro rated for the year. This is not a loan when the rules are different.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Jo, I understand now. So as its a loan of an asset instead of a loan of cash its 20% and as its October its divided by two as October is the 7th month so the last 6 months of the year ? divide by two
yes that makes sense
Thanks very much jo x

Hello Nic

Yes, it is a loan of an asset rather than a beneficial loan where you calculate the benefit if the loan is over £5k using the ORI. Remember you calculate the full amount of the loan, not just the difference over £5k

Yes you can divide by two or take the 20% of £1k and then multiply 6/12 - same thing.

Good luck Tuesday.
