How to set up the tax structure for a limited company - UK tax advice for Business Owners
http://www.incauk.biz/ Hi, I'm Graham from Inca Chartered Accountants We put together this video series titled "Tax tips for small businesses" to help you understand and save tax. One of the questions we get asked most frequently is which structure is best for my business. Explaining in the first video the benefits for a sole trader. In this one I'm going to talk more about the limited company and its benefits. Now when we start talking about limited companies many people think about grand PLCs and boardrooms and annual general meetings and perhaps getting a share of the profits once or twice a year in the form of a dividend. Most limited companies don't operate like that. They are small in structure, they are small in ownership and there as a vehicle to provide protection and income benefit to people who own them. In tax terms as soon as you start making profits above £7500 a year you are actually better off as a limited company than as a sole trader. That's because the sole trader is paying tax at a rate of 29% - 20% tax plus an additional 9% in what's known as Class 4 National Insurance, which is just tax -- you don't get a bigger hospital, you don't get to the front of the queue, you don't get a bigger pension -- its just tax. A company pays tax at 20% that's a 9% saving. Have a chat with your bank manager and see if you will get 9% return on investment from that, then give me a call because I'll put some money in as well. So 9% tax saving is quite significant but a company requires more administration. Its more costly to operate so there has to be enough benefit for the company owner to make it worth while. We say if you are making more than £15,000 a year in profit. So that's your sales and then all your expenses taken off, then you should take a look at it. At that level there is enough benefit to outweigh some of the disadvantages of the structure and cost. As an owner you get a share of the profits. That comes in what's known as a dividend. Now you can have those dividends as frequently as you want. Some people think you can only have them once or twice a year. You can have 365 dividends in a year if you really wanted to and if your business allowed it, and of course if you put the necessary paperwork together. The other big advantage of the limited company is protection. I don't want to lose my house if the business goes wrong and I'm sure neither do you. Limited company's, if you run correctly gives protection against your personal possessions becoming part of any carve up situation that might happen. So that's the limited company. If you are making profits it's a good idea. If you are not, have a think about the Sole Trader. In the next video I'm going to talk about VAT.

Tolley's Tax Guide 2011-12
BOOK REVIEW TOLLEY'S TAX GUIDE 2011-12 By Claire Hayes, Ruth Newman, and Francesca Lagerberg LexisNexis ISBN: 978 0 7545 4071 7 www.lexisnexis.co.uk BECAUSE IGNORANCE COSTS -- YOU NEED TOLLEY'S TAX GUIDE 2011-12 An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Another tax year, another Tolley's! This latest Tolley's Tax Guide from LexisNexis -- the thirtieth annual edition of this plain speaking and reliable work -- incorporates all the changes in taxation law and practice since publication of the previous edition of 2010 -- including of course the 2011-12 tax rates and allowances. Obviously accountants or tax lawyers, for that matter, cannot live without their yearly Tolley's. But what is always noteworthy about Tolley's, as The Times commented, is that 'people with not financial experience can dip into the guide for clear answers to specific problems.' The expressed aim of the book is 'to provide clear and concise guidance on all aspects of taxation that are likely to be encountered day to day'. Whether you are a professional tax adviser, or just an ordinary personal or business taxpayer, you'll find this volume indispensable. As the publishers put it, this Guide 'will show you how to reduce your tax bills and stay on top of your tax affairs'. How handy, when you're doing your tax return. For this year, 2011, it is especially important to have this latest edition to hand as it includes the main changes that have been enacted by the Finance Act 2011 as well as various statutory instruments in the previous 12 months, including rates and allowances pertaining to income tax and tax credits...corporation tax...capital gains tax...inheritance tax and VAT. Chapter 9 deals with the latest developments in dealing with HMRC. Chapters 10 and 13 cover changes in national insurance rates and childcare relief. Changes to pension provision and capital allowances are also covered and there are also chapters on council tax and business rates, NI contributions, statutory sick pay and maternity pay, as well as adoption and paternity pay. Usefully, the book contains many illustrative examples to show how the various provisions actually work in practice. There are tax points at the end of most chapters -- over 300 of them -- to demonstrate tax planning opportunities and there are numerous practical planning hints and strategies. Logically structured, this Tolley's is clearly laid out with headings and a detailed index at the back so that whatever you need to know is easy to look up within its almost 900 pages. For exceptionally complicated tax matters, you are sensibly advised to seek professional advice. Here then, is a clear, concise reference to keep to hand on your shelf, or indeed at your elbow on your desk. AccountingWEB has called it 'the nation's favourite tax book' -- and if you rush out and buy this latest Tolley's, you'll certainly find out why.

Kocherlakota: Statement on Dissenting vote at August 9, 2011 FOMC meeting
Statement by Narayana Kocherlakota on dissenting vote at August 9, 2011 meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee. View the full text at: http://www.minneapolisfed.org/publications_papers/pub_display.cfm?id=4715 One of my jobs as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis is to serve on the Federal Open Market Committee. At its last meeting on August 9, the Committee took what I viewed as a significant policy step. I dissented from its decision. I believe that transparency is an essential part of effective policy formation, and so I'm offering this brief explanation of my decision. These views are not necessarily those of others on the Federal Open Market Committee, including presidents Richard Fisher and Charles Plosser. Entering the meeting, the FOMC was following an unprecedentedly accommodative monetary policy. There were three elements to this policy. First, the Federal Reserve owned over $2.5 trillion of long-term government and government-backed securities. The purchase of the final $600 billion of these assets was announced in November 2010 and completed by the end of June 2011. Second, as it had since December 2008, the Committee was maintaining the fed funds rate at between 0 and 25 basis points. Third, as it had since March 2009, the Committee statement included the forward guidance that it anticipated keeping the fed funds rate at this low level for "an extended period." The "extended period" is generally interpreted as being between three and six months. The Committee adopted this three-part policy stance in November 2010. I agreed with this decision and supported it publicly at that time and throughout this year. In its August 9 meeting, the Committee changed this "extended period" language to say instead that it "currently anticipates economic conditions ... are likely to warrant extraordinarily low levels of the federal funds rate through mid-2013." This statement is designed to let the public know that the fed funds rate is likely to stay between 0 and 25 basis points over the next two years, not just over the next three to six months. Hence, the new language is intended to provide more monetary accommodation than before. I dissented from this change in language because the evolution of macroeconomic data did not reflect a need to make monetary policy more accommodative than in November 2010. In particular, personal consumption expenditure (PCE) inflation rose notably in the first half of 2011, whether or not one includes food and energy. At the same time, while unemployment does remain disturbingly high, it has fallen since November. I can summarize my reasoning as follows. I believe that in November, the Committee judiciously chose a level of accommodation that was well calibrated for the prevailing economic conditions. Since November, inflation has risen and unemployment has fallen. I do not believe that providing more accommodation—easing monetary policy—is the appropriate response to these changes in the economy. Going forward, my votes on monetary policy will continue to be based on the evolution of the data on PCE inflation and its components, medium-term PCE inflation expectations, and unemployment.

Mitch Albom Tries to Rescue Michigan Film Incentives
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder's proposal to cap the state's film subsidy program to $25 million has high profile film industry supporters, including Mitch Albom, fighting back. The Mackinac Center spoke with Albom as well as Michigan's Budget Director about this escalating controversy. Background: The Michigan Film incentive program currently offers a refund of up to 42% of film production spending in Michigan. The amount is unlimited. As part of his plan to reduce a projected $1.8 billion budget deficit, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder proposed capping the state's film subsidies to a yearly allowance of $25 million. And unlike the current approval process which rests solely with the Michigan Film Office and Treasury Department, the money would be legislatively appropriated.

What Are CDs And Bonds?
http://www.DoughMain.com - What Are CDs And Bonds? Financial Education. Chores Tracker. Family Calendar. Allowance CDs, or Certificates of Deposit, and US Savings Bonds are both examples of investments that have a set interest rate. A set interest rate means it will stay the same, no matter what happens to the economy. CD and US Savings Bonds are low risk investments. With a CD you invest a fixed sum of money for a fixed period of time. In return, the bank pays you interest. A Savings Bond works slightly differently. You purchase this bond at half the maturity price and after five years the interest rate compounds and your bond matures to its full value. Also, if you leave your Savings Bond for longer than the five years, it will gain more interest and earn even more money.

Unemployment In Northern Ireland
This is the life we're all headed for here in Northern Ireland where the best jobs our politicians can deliver for most of us is shitty call centres. The number of people claiming unemployment benefit in Northern Ireland rose again in March. The number claiming jobless benefits was 55,900, a rise of 300 on the previous month. Northern Ireland was the only region of the UK to record a rise in the number of people claiming jobless benefits. The number of people claiming is up 11,400 or 26% on this time last year, the highest annual rise of any UK region. The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment also uses another method to measure quarterly unemployment. The Labour Force Survey takes a representative sample by asking households about their status. It suggests that the NI rate of unemployment between December and February was 6.4%, down 0.5% from the previous quarter, but up from 5.9% for the previous year. The survey is used to give a comparative rate across the European Union, because methods of claiming benefits differ between nations. It suggests that NI is below the rate in the UK, 8%, the Irish Republic, 13.8%, and the wider European Union, 9.5%. The Labour Force Survey also suggests that the current rate of economic inactivity in Northern Ireland is 27.2%. Northern Ireland's rate of economic inactivity, defined by those who are not in employment but are not actively seeking jobs, is the highest in the UK, 5.7% more than the nationwide average. Northern Bank Chief Economist Angela McGowan said the rate of job shedding seen in the early part of the recession has tapered off but "we are still not out of the woods yet when it comes to the labour market." "An expected cull in public sector jobs is expected further down the line and long-term unemployment continues to rise and is now sitting at 41.4 per cent," she said. "Northern Ireland urgently needs an economic strategy that will ensure a smooth transition from our public sector dependency to an enterprise-based economy. "Planning now for what we know is around the corner will make an enormous difference to our labour market in the years ahead."

How To Calculate Mortgage Payments
Visit http://www.gobankingrates.com/calculators to use our free mortgage payment calculator mentioned in this video! How to calculate your monthly mortgage payments, presented by GoBankingRates.com Editor, Casey Bond. Hi, I'm Casey, and I'm the Editor of GoBankingRates.com. These days, mortgage interest rates have been so ridiculously low that a lot of people are wondering, "If I were to go out there and buy a house, how do I figure out how much my mortgage payments are actually going to be?" Well, while the formula for figuring out monthly payments is... less than simple: M = P [ i (1+i)^n ] / [ (1+i)^n - 1 ] ...I would suggest using an online calculator instead. Go Banking Rates actually has a very simple mortgage calculator that you can use: http://www.gobankingrates.com/calculators There are three simple things you need to know in order to use the calculator. Step 1 - Enter how much you plan to borrow, obviously. Step 2 - Enter your interest rate. I would suggest you actually enter the APR instead of the straight interest rate, because it's going to roll in additional expenses such as your brokerage fees, closing costs, property taxes, and give you a more accurate understanding of how much you plan to pay each month. Step 3 - Lastly, enter how many years you want to take to pay it off. Generally people will go with 15 to 30 years. Now one last tip: Keep in mind that your mortgage payment is not the only expense associated with owning a home. Once you buy your house, you're going to be exposed to a number of new bills you never had as a renter -- including things like home maintenance and repair, new utilities like water and trash, and maybe even Homeowners Association dues. So, while homeownership is a great goal to strive for, make sure that your income truly supports it before you go out there and buy.
