The growing range of zero emissions vehicles presents a real opportunity to cut expenses, but there are drawbacks to consider.
With few models to choose from and a frustrating ownership experience, the first wave of electric vehicles (EVs) was a tough sell. But heading into 2020, things are changing.
Company car tax is not only based on CO2 emissions, but also electric driving range. Prior rules stipulated that cars with an electric driving range of 130 miles and above would fall into the 2% car tax band, but these rules were recently scrapped. Pure electric vehicles—those without a tailpipe—will now benefit from an even lower 0% tax rate between 2020-2021. The following two years will see rates rise to 1% and 2% in 2021-22 and 2022-2023 respectively.Read more

As you approach the new Tax Year, claiming tax repayments with the R40 will be pretty much top of your To Do list.
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.
You probably know that the deadline approaching for submitting your Self Assessment tax return is the end of this month. Here are ten tax return tips to help you file your Self Assessment return in time and without stress.
It’s not just being late that can lead to a nasty letter from HMRC or a fine. By using TaxCalc we’ll also help check for errors and fix issues before you file your return meaning you’ll be much less likely to make any mistakes!
EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES – EVEN HMRC!
But don’t worry. The fix is on its way.
You may already know that HMRC has made a number of changes to the Personal Savings and Dividend Tax Reform, which became effective from 6th April this year. You’ll also probably know by now that errors were made in the calculation of tax liabilities.
It’s meant that those affected are unable to electronically submit Tax Returns (if an error registers it’s called an Exclusion). Instead they have to file a paper Return, providing at the same time a ‘reasonable excuse’ form. This has proven highly inconvenient and is a potential problem that’s common to users of all brands of tax software.
But fear no more. At TaxCalc we’ve been working closely with HMRC to remedy the situation quickly.
As you may have heard in recent announcements, such as the one from our CEO Tracy Ebdon Poole Making Tax Digital for Business has been delayed. However, the ability for information to be automatically populated in a Self Assessment tax return is still pressing on.
Having first written about this in early 2016, we thought it was time to update our customers as to the progress of this.
