Tax relief for Entrepreneurs

Tax relief for Entrepreneurs

Online Course on Tax relief
for Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs’ relief reduces the tax payable on the sale on some or all of a business by someone who has shares in it or did so when it ceased. If all the conditions are met, you or your client will be eligible for tax relief, but what are those conditions and how can you be sure you’re getting the reliefs that you or your clients are due?

The course will explain how the relief is applied and all the requirements necessary for an individual trader, partner, trustee or shareholder to qualify. It will cover planning opportunities and pitfalls and how the relief applies in certain circumstances, in particular, where other reliefs are involved.

• Advise on how to benefit from a reduced rate of tax when selling a business
• Incorporate businesses or reorganise companies, whilst claiming or preserving relief
• Advise partners in a business who are selling their interest
