Salaried member rules update in light of BlueCrest Capital
Salaried Members (SM) legislation: The Upper-tier Tribunal (Tax and Chancery) (UTT) judgement on appeals by His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and BlueCrest Capital Management (UK) LLP (BlueCrest) heard on 27-29 June 2023, was released on 18 September 2023. The judges confirmed that the First-tier Tribunal (FTT)’s decisions were correct and dismissed both appeals. However, the judges did provide some clarification on HMRC’s interpretation of the ‘significant influence’ exclusion which was considered too narrow. It remains to be seen if either HMRC or BlueCrest take their appeals further.
Making Tax Digital for Income Tax
HMRC has confirmed that Making Tax Digital (MTD) will apply from April 2023. Unincorporated businesses with trading and/or rental income exceeding £10,000 per year will be required to keep their accounting records electronically and file quarterly updates with HMRC. In addition, a final end of period submission will be required, after the end of the tax year. It is estimated that four million businesses will be affected.
