My mistake - now corrected

John Stokdyk |

Thanks for alerting us - these tables are always a challenge and it helps if members point out errors so we can get them right.

I'll do a comprehensive second proof-read now to make sure nothing else has slipped through.

Pension limit changes

steve01257 |

John,

I am sure that the reductions in the annual allowance to £40,000 and the lifetime allowance to £1,250,000 are only from 6 April 2014 not from April this year as stated.

Regards

Steve

@steve01257 - well spotted

That mistake has also been corrected in the table above.

Class 4 lower profits limit

NIC lower earnings limit 2012-13

julieclare |

This should be £107 not £102. £102 was the limit for 2011/12.

John Stokdyk's picture

Didn't mean for the tables to be quite so interactive

John Stokdyk |

Apologies again for allowing the errors to slip throug and thanks @Ardeninian and @julieclare for bringing them to our attention. They have been corrected in the text.

Our in-house proof-reading has been inadequate in this instance, but having been gone over so many times by attentive AccountingWEB members, I think the tables should now be relatively trust-worthy.

Stamp duty rates

Duncan Cameron |

I'm not casting doubt on the claim you make in your final para but the SDLT rates you give are at odds with those quoted by others eg UK.GOV  (https://www.gov.uk/stamp-duty-land-tax-rates).

PA 2013-14

KeZico |

Isn't the personal allowance £9205 for those aged under 65 for 2013-14 ?? (as opposed to £9440 you have)

@KeZico

Ardeninian |

I'm afraid not: it was originally announced as £9,205 at Budget 2012, but was increased to £9,440 in the Autumn Statement

VAT Reg Threshold

Andrew288 |

Sorry if I missed it from somewhere obvious but what are the new VAT thresholds? Small overall point but these seem to be the hardest figures to find.

Found it.

Andrew288 |

Found VAT threshold under other heading but did ring HMRC first after noting their website was not updated.  Waiting 20 seconds (after the usual 3 minutes 45) for the figures £79K and £77K to be looked up.
