A Practical Guide to Vat for Golf Clubs
This book is intended as a guide to the basic rules of VAT as they affect golf clubs for club secretaries, treasurers, finance committee chairmen and accounting practices that have golf clubs as their clients. The third edition includes a new chapter to cover claims for overpaid VAT the consequences of the Bridport and West Dorset Golf Club case and new HMRC guidance.
This book is intended to meet a range of different needs and to cater for different levels of knowledge about employee ownership. If you are considering making your company employee-owned or you are advising someone going through that process, and in either case are new to the topic, you can build up your knowledge levels from Chapter 1. Alternatively, the book can be used as a reference work if you have a particular question to answer.
The book is intended as practical guide rather than a highly detailed technical treatise. Its priority is to explain key issues in an accessible fashion and to raise awareness of where further exploration and advice may be important.
Employment-Related Securities and Unlisted Companies is written with mainly private or unlisted companies in mind and explains in depth how the employment related securities (‘ERS’) rules in ITEPA 2003, Part 7 apply to employee share acquisitions generally, including:
- Securities as earnings
- Restricted or convertible securities
- Securities acquired for less than market value
- Securities disposed of for more than their market value
- Post-acquisition benefits connected with securities
- Securities acquired under options
The book also explores employee share acquisitions through various means, the relevant capital gains tax rules and corporation tax relief for employee share acquisitions. Basic share valuation methodology is discussed and though PAYE and NICs do not apply generally to unlisted company shares/securities, they may apply where a market exists for the securities or on the occurrence of events related to ERS. Lastly, the compliance requirements with regard to online registration of schemes, annual returns, penalties etc, are also featured.
