    Osborne Books Business Tax AQ2016 Workbook

    Practice Assessment 1

    Task 2 a)
    Profits Apr-Oct: £109920 * 7/12 = £64120
    Molly's share: £64120 * 3/5 = £38472
    Nigel's share: £64120 * 2/5 = £25648

    Profits £109920
    Less salaries £30000
    Less interest on capital £2640
    = £77280 * 5/12 Nov-Mar = £32200
    Molly's share: £32200 * 55% = £17710
    Nigel's share: £32200 * 45% = £14490

    Task 2 b)
    Class 4 NIC at 2%
    5/12 of salary and interest on capital £5800
    Plus profit share Apr-Oct £38472
    Plus profit share Nov-Mar £17710
    = £61982
    Minus £43000
    = £18982 * 2% = £379.64

    Task 11 b)
    Work through the question in order and draw a chart to help understand. Do you need the calculations?

    Practice Assessment 2

    Task 1 c)
    Use the AAT reference material "sole traders - change of accounting date"

    Task 11 b)
    £35000 minus £11100 (annual exempt amount) = £23900 chargeable
    Gains chargeable at 10% is the basic rate band £32000 minus taxable income £18500= £13500
    £23900 minus £13500= £10400 gains chargeable at 20%

    Practice Assessment 3

    Task 6 a)
    31 Jan 17
    Alison had made payments on account for 2015/16 based on the tax due for 2014/15 (£18400)
    So £21500 - £18400 = £3100 still due on 31Jan17 for 2015/16 return
    She also has to make a payment in advance for 2016/17 on 31Jan17 and this is half of £21500 = £10750. The other half is paid on 31Jul17
    £3100 + £10750 = £13850

    Task 8
    The company wishes to claim any loss relief as early as possible-
    First offset the loss against the TTP of the year of loss (2016) which is £12400
    £85000 minus £12400 leaves £72600 to offset against the previous year (2015) TTP
    Again, you can use the AAT reference material


    Hope that helps :)

    Hey guys can you tell me how to get the answer for assesment 1 11b. For the first question gain/loss on sale of shares on 12 Jan 2017 I get 1400 loss!

    1800/5000×15000=5400

    5400-4000=1400

    Please help it's really bugging me xx

    @eva518

    Have a look at the share matching rules for individuals in the Tutorial
    Carol is an individual who bought and sold shares in Ceeco Limited therefore the share matching rules are:
    - First any shares bought on the same day as disposal are matched
    - Then any shares bought in the 30 days AFTER disposal are matched
    - Any remaining shares are deemed to have come from the 'FA 1985 pool' of shares

    So back to the question, carol sold 1800 shares for £4000 on 12 Jan 2017 and bought 6800 shares totalling £21080 on 1 Feb 2017, this is within 30 days of disposal therefore we match it first

    (£21080/6800)x1800= £5580 cost
    £5580-£4000 proceeds = £1580 loss


    Hope that helps
