Im really Confused as question 1.6 part b
on 1st oct ken was provided with the loan of a music system costing 1000 for personal use calculate the benefit in kind: answer is £100
Now as its below 5000 i had the answer as 0
why is it 100? Is it because its for personal use? and even then how does it come out at 100?

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 xNicola Donnelly ,MAAT, MIP, CIMA Dip MA

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.
