Chargeable Events & Personal Allowance

Should the personal allowance be used in the top slicing calculations?

Didn't find your answer?

This is my first question on this forum therefore apologies if I am answering a common thread (which I have missed).

A client of mine has a single chargeable event on an offshore bond. The gain is £60,000 over 3 complete years. They have no other income in the year. I am happy with all of the calculations other than "Step 2" of ITTOIA 2005, s536. From reading the legislation, I believe that the personal allowance and personal savings allowance form part of the calculation in the Annual Equivilant however my software is suggesting otherwise.

Anyone have experience with this?

Are you hoping that the tax credit will be repayable ?

It’s offshore so no notional tax.

Have a look at Online filing exclusion 81, this talks about the starting rate and the PSA not being taken into account whereas it should be.
HMRC are meant to be doing a 'recovery exercise' to correct it however believe that software may still give the original (incorrect) result.
