Year End Tax Planning Guide 2016/17

Menzies tax planning guide

As the end of the 2016/17 tax year end approaches, it is important that you take the time to review your financial and tax arrangements, and consider what actions you may need to take before the start of the new tax year on 6 April 2017.

Taking action before the end of the tax year may give you the opportunity to take advantage of reliefs, allowances and exemptions whilst they remain available. At the same time, you should be considering whether there are any relevant elections that you need to make before the start of the new tax year, and before the chance to do so passes.
