Is change really so taxing?

Confused about the new tax changes of 6 April? Fear not! The ICAEW Library & Information Service is here to help.

Changes to property tax may impact buy-to-let investors, but we can guide you through the changes. Check out our pages on Property and land tax to get you started. An article in Taxation (10 March 2016) handily highlights the main changes from 6 April too.

An extremely popular book with our members since its publication earlier this year has been Landlord interest by C. Bayley, as it outlines how the new rules operate and how landlords can minimise tax increases. How to save property tax is another book we often recommend which contains hundreds of tried and tested tax saving ideas.

Employment tax is also changing, so have a look at our pages on Income tax and National insurance contributions to begin, but also don’t forget to consult our journals which contain lots of handy articles about the changes. Articles in Tax Journal and Tax Insight have both recently covered this topic.

There are also changes to dividend taxation. Conveniently ICAEW’s own tax journal, TAXLine, has covered these changes in two recent articles Dividend taxation: All change and Company distributions: capital or income? While you’re thinking about dividends, why not take a look at our knowledge guide which outlines sources of dividend data, including what’s available from Library’s Enquiry Service.

Don’t forget, the ICAEW Library website has a wide range of information about tax matters, from car tax to transfer pricing, all readily available via one page. If you’re still finding the coming changes taxing or you’d like to take advantage of our book and document supply services, don’t hesitate to contact the Library & Information Service.
