Task 3 the answer under staff parties says 100 under foday's total employment income but i though staff parties is a non taxable benefit up to £150 a head so surely the answer should be 0 if the party cost the employer £120 per employee

also task 6 james total income tax liabilities it says his income from employment is 14,500 but looking at the answers it says it is now 14,000 not 14,500 not sure why this would be

and finally if anyone knows how you work out task 9 (b) Celia brought 20 acres of land for £45,900 in the 2016/17 tax year,she sold five acres for £50,000 and the remaining acres were valued at £400,000

calculate the gain on the sale of the land the answer is 44,900 not sure again how you get to this answer

Any help on any of these questions would be appreciated

17AAT Student, AATQB16RegisteredCan't see why 'income from employment' has changed from £14,500 to £14,000 unless we're both missing something!

17AAT Student, AATQB16Registered376RegisteredPart disposal.

Proceeds

£50,000Less costs (£45900 X £50,000 / (£50,000 + £400,000))

(£5100)Gain

£44,90017AAT Student, AATQB16Registered16Registered17AAT Student, AATQB16RegisteredThat gives a chargeable gain of £14,500. Then deducting the annual exempt amount of £11,100 it leaves £3,400 that is subject to capital gains tax.

Because Donna has £30,000 of other taxable income she has £2,000 left in the basic rate band.

So the first £2,000 of the £3,400 is at 10% basic rate capital gains tax = £200

But the last £1,400 of the £3,400 is in the higher rate band so is charged at 20% = £280

So the total is £200 + £280 = £480

That's my take on it anyway.

The question/answers to task 6 are incorrect. Darren's college believes so and so does my tutor. I was just interested to hear what AAT had to say about it.

376RegisteredWhy not post the question? I guarantee you'd get a faster response from someone who actually deals with tax, day in, day out.

This is why I've mentioned previously - post the actual question. If you don't post the question you're narrowing it down to who CAN answer due to the fact that only students can see the question you mention.

If you're happy with that cool. But folk like me, folk who have been there and 'done that' have the experience to answer the question.

Up to you guys as students. But take the most of what you can from your audience.

16RegisteredI've also sent a private message to you Bertie with the links in.

I tested them and they work without being logged into the AAT site.

17AAT Student, AATQB16Registered17AAT Student, AATQBWe have just started credit management a few weeks ago which seems a lot worse than personal tax to remember

16RegisteredI'm studying Business Tax now - it's pretty tough but having studied Personal Tax has definitely given me a head start I think.
