A collection of the best LPC BLP notes the director of Oxbridge Notes (an Oxford law graduate) could find after combing through dozens of LPC samples from outstanding students with the highest results in England and carefully evaluating each on accuracy, formatting, logical structure, spelling/grammar, conciseness and "wow-factor".

In short these are what we believe to be the strongest set of Business Law and Practice notes available in the UK this year. This collection of notes is fully updat...

The following is a more accessible plain text extract of the PDF sample above, taken from our Business Law and Practice Notes. Due to the challenges of extracting text from PDFs, it will have odd formatting:

Step 4

Apply tax rates:

Entrepreneurs relief can be used for shares in a trading company where the seller owns 5% of the voting rights and are an officer/employee of the company. Where ER applies the tax rate is 10%.

If ER does not apply then apply the taxable income as follows:

  • Less than 31,785 = 18% tax

  • More than 31,785 = 28% tax

  • Above & Below = threshold below = 18%, above = 28%

Corporation Tax

Roll Over Relief

This can be used when a company disposes of a business assets and purchases a replacement asset. It allows the gain to be carried forward and rolled onto the acquisition cost of the replacement asset.

This relief can be used for: land/buildings, goodwill, plant/machinery, ships, aircrafts, quotas, space stations/satellites. Both assets must fall into the above categories but do not have to be the same.

The replacement must be purchased 12 months before or 3 years after the sale of the asset.

Sale of Old Asset = X

Chargeable Gain = Y

Cost of New Asset = Z

New Deemed Base Cost = Z - Y

Capital Allowances

Year Allowance Written Down Value

Allowance = 500,000

Cost of Machinery - 500,000 = A

18% of A = B

A - B = WDV1
2 18% of WDV1 = C WDV1 - C = WDV2
3 18% of WDV2 = D WDV2 - D = WDV3

This allows the spread of cost over a period of time, even though it is capital expenditure it should be treated as income. It applies to qualifying expenditure: plant/machinery, energy saving and water technologies.

Companies can deduct 18% of the value of the plant/machinery from their income each year on a reducing balance basis. The capital allowance is 500,000 which allows a company to deduct this amount (plus 18 % in the first year) and an additional 18% for all other years.
