Foreword by Menzies Private Client Partner David Truman

While the Chancellor of the Exchequer is looking to reduce the tax gap, there are nonetheless still opportunities to review your financial arrangements for saving tax throughout the tax year.

Taking action now may give you the opportunity to take advantage of any remaining reliefs, allowances and exemptions. At the same time, you should be considering whether there are any planning opportunities that you need to consider either for this tax year or for your long term future.

How to use this tax planner

Take a few moments to review this planner, in which we highlight some simple tax planning strategies which could help you structure your affairs in such a way to help reduce your exposure to tax.

Unless otherwise specified, the tax rates used are for the 2021/22 tax year to 5 April 2022. It has been announced that the tax bands should remain unchanged until 5 April 2026

It should also be noted that from 6 April 2018 different rates of income tax have applied in Scotland. These are not taken into account.
