Personal tax planning

The new tax year starts 6 April 2022. Once we are into the new tax year the majority of the tax planning options for Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax purposes in this financial year will cease. So you have only weeks to consider options and actions which may impact on this year’s tax bill.


Don’t forget to review whether it might be worth topping up your pension contributions for tax year 2021-22


If you are self-employed and are thinking about the purchase of equipment or vehicles, it might be worth you acting sooner rather than later.

Final dividends or bonuses

If you are the director and/or shareholder of a limited company and have not yet considered voting final dividends or bonuses for 2021-22, maybe now is a good time to act.

Personal status

If considering marriage, divorce or any legal relationship change, are you aware of how this might impact on your future tax planning?
