November news

Upcoming legislation: Ultra Low Emission Vehicles

From 6 April 2020 the car and car fuel benefit calculation is changing with the introduction of 11 new bands for ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) including a separate zero emissions band. This is to support the Government’s commitment to improving air quality in towns and cities. If your client’s company car has a CO2 emission figure of 1-50g/km, they will need to provide the cars zero emission mileage. This is the distance that the car can travel in miles on a single electric charge.

This used to be the quickest way of getting a tax repayment. However HMRC has now issued an updated R40 repayment claim form for 2017/18 which changes the way repayments are sent.

As our practitioner customers will be aware, in the latter half of 2017, we released our implementation of HMRC’s new Application Programming Interfaces (or APIs). This is data that HMRC has already received from different sources which can then be fed into the tax return. This facility has proven to be extremely useful, saving our customers a great deal of time and effort.

HMRC SA APIs. AOK?

Great news. TaxCalc now incorporates the ability to receive data directly from HMRC using HMRC’s pre-population APIs.

Once you’ve checked the data, all you have to do is click a single button and the data is fed directly into TaxCalc Tax Return Production to generate a tax return. This should save you considerable time and effort.
