Help regarding partnership.

Didn't find your answer?


Currently I have a partnership which is equally divided between myself and one other.

The partner has a joint bank account with his wife and he is trying to explore the possibility of defining her as a sleeping partner with 25% of the partnership - obviously to reduce tax as she currently just earns over 11k. All of this has come about as I’m about to complete 18/19 tax return.

I am highly inexperienced regarding such matters as our operation has been very simplistic and my knowledge stretches just as far as completing a partnership return and two individuals.

Would anyone be so kind to provide me with guidance / direction in tackling this matter? Or any other possible suggestions.

If you don't want her in, she's not in.

She can only be admitted with your agreement.

You need professional advice.

Do remember, if vat registered, the time limits re advising HMRC re changes in composition of the partnership- so often this gets overlooked.
