The other important thing from yesterday's tax webinar is that Capital Gains Tax rates may well be brought in line with Income Tax - with a reduction or even abolition of the annual exemption, currently £12,300. So a jump from 28% to 40% or even 45% is possible. Folks holding assets with considerable potential gains may be advised to sell now to minimise tax!!!

however not avoiding paying tax ensures that the gpvernmentcan afford topay nurses moere money, there is a shortage of nurses right now paying more money to nurses might ensure less people die, you think you are giving helpful advice, but your advice is entireley for selfish people, typical of the present conservative administration. why is NHS underfunded, not enough tax payers money, undoubtedly i will be called a childish idiot by the usual suspects ,but what i am advocating is patriotic in the best sense of the word

oops, not finished!!

If we have a situation where one is sitting on a corporate with pots of cash, and you're debating whether to do a wind up or not, at the moment if you wound that company up then you are looking at a 20% tax bill on the extraction, assuming that the 10% Entrepreneurs' rate has been used or is not available. Now that is far far cheaper than what might be around the corner.

So instead of winding up, leave the money in the company A, Sandman, then form another company B which will be a property company. Company A will then lend money to company B, to buy property. The beauty of that is the ex trading company is lending which qualities 100% for Business Property Relief, so the shares in the loan company will not be in your estate, so exempt for Inheritance Tax!!

In the property company the shares are in your estate, but the company isn't worth anything because the loans are equal to the property values. If property values do go up, you can use growth shares in the property company, so that any growth goes to the B shares which are owned by your children, Sandman, then you've got a pretty efficient vehicle through to retirement.

The property company will then pay interest on the loan to the lending company which can be paid to the shareholder as dividends, for which the first £2,000 is taxed at 0% Sandman!!!

All in all, good tax planning.

US healthcare
Trump enjoys top Covid care that could cost ordinary Americans millions

Experts say president’s five-star round-the-clock treatment would result ‘catastrophic debt for many people’
Americans pay more for healthcare than any other nation, including during a pandemic. At the same time, Americans rarely know how much a given treatment will cost even as they receive it.

When most Americans are admitted to the hospital, one concern beyond health is usually at the top of patient’s mind: the cost of their treatment.
At least 22 in Trump’s circle have tested positive for coronavirus
Read more

One American who does not have to worry about this is Donald Trump.

“We have the best medical equipment, we have the best medicines,” said the US president, addressing Americans after he was released from Walter Reed national military medical center, without mentioning the 210,000 Americans killed by Covid-19.

“You’re going to beat it. Don’t let it take over your lives,” he advised.

But Trump was able to skip many of the formalities (and forms) the vast majority of Americans would confront if faced with a similar situation. This may leave many of them wondering – just how much would “the best” medical care have cost me?

The answer, like everything else in American healthcare, is fiendishly complex and very expensive.

“This is truly a catastrophic medical event in terms of going to a hospital and getting lots of specialized care,” said Sara Collins, vice-president for healthcare coverage at the Commonwealth Fund. The result would be for most Americans “catastrophic medical debt for many people”.

Americans pay more for healthcare than any other nation, including during a pandemic. At the same time, Americans rarely know how much a given treatment will cost even as they receive it.

Experts said Trump’s helicopter rides to and from the hospital, diagnostic testing and imaging, experimental prescription drugs, a private suite, round-the-clock care, and additional personal protective equipment required for outings would cost at least hundreds of thousands, and perhaps millions, of dollars.

“I would not be surprised if it were to exceed $1m,” said Dr Bruce Y Lee, a professor at the City University of New York School of Public Health, whose recent work has estimated how much a course of Covid-19 treatment would cost an average American.

Most Americans get care through private insurance. Trump has excellent government insurance and his treatment by the White House Medical Unit is free. Lee used a computational model to assess how much a hospital would charge a regular American’s insurance for Covid-19 treatment. Most insurance would be charged $3,045 over the course of the infection, the model found.

But Trump is not average. He is a high-risk, older man classified as obese, all risk factors for severe disease. Using Lee’s model, someone with Trump’s demographics is more likely to be charged a median $18,579 over the course of a year.

    I would not be surprised if [his care] were to exceed $1m

Bruce Y Lee

Charges vary wildly across the country, though. Hospitals in the American west charge a median of $93,459 to patients in Trump’s age group before negotiated insurance discounts, an analysis by insurance claims database company Fair Health found.

And those are only the most basic costs for treatment of lung-involved disease, such as pneumonia. It does not cover the specialized prescription drugs Trump received.

One of the drugs Trump received was an experimental monoclonal antibody cocktail from Regeneron. This therapy is not available to the public, and may never be approved. Regular Americans cannot access it. Regeneron did not respond to a request for comment on the potential price of the drug.

Monoclonal antibody treatments approved over the last 20 years cost an average of $96,731, according to a study in the Global Journal on Quality and Safety in Healthcare. Trump’s treatment with them would probably cost even more than that, because he took the equivalent of more than three doses of Regeneron’s treatment. So quadruple the cost, because for most medicines, you can’t buy a partial dose. That’s $386,924.

The president also received remdesivir, an antiviral medication with limited availability. Developing countries pay $2,340 per patient for a five-day course of treatment. But, everything healthcare-related is more expensive in the US. The list price for Americans is $3,120 per five-day course.

The cheapest therapy Trump received is dexamethasone, a generic corticosteroid first introduced in the 1950s. At the low range, it costs about $5.

Then there are the helicopter rides. The median charge for an air ambulance was $39,000 in 2016, and Trump took two – $78,000.

There would also probably be charges for any diagnostic testing Trump had, including X-rays and CT scans. An excellent suite and food, which is shown to improve patient outcomes, often costs more. Cleaning services for special outings, like Trump’s motorcade ride, might not be covered. Nor would the cost of personal protective equipment for aides.

“The type of care the president received – there are very, very, very few people in the country, if not the world, who will receive that level of care,” said Lee. “You can’t expect to receive the same types of treatments, the same type of care or potentially the same type of outcomes as the president.”

Insurance would probably cover some, but not all, of the charges listed above. But even if they do, they might not do so right away. Most Americans have a story about a fight with their insurance, which, by the way, is not free.

The average, non-elderly family in America pays $8,200 per year or 11% of their annual income to insurance fees, according to the research group Kaiser Family Foundation. Their employer will also make payments toward insurance, on average around $5,500.

Extraneous costs and the stress of not knowing who will pay them has a phrase in American medicine: “Financial toxicity”. It is often used in discussions of cancer treatment, which are so expensive a remarkable 42.4% of American cancer patients deplete their entire life savings two years after a diagnosis.

And the entire discussion of what insurance would pay is irrelevant if you don’t have insurance, which was the case for 27 million Americans pre-pandemic. Another 12 million have since joined the ranks of the uninsured, thanks to the accompanying economic crisis caused by Covid-19.

Hospitals charge uninsured patients between 1.5-12 times more than what they charge insurance companies, according to a study in Health Affairs. If people do not pay, hospitals can and do pursue patients through courts and credit reporting agencies.

“The majority of Americans don’t have the best treatments, whatever he said, because it’s about access,” said Lee. “The care that he received is available only to a very small minority of Americans.”

I have no objection to paying my fair share of tax if others do too.
BUT
if I have saved money out of taxed income and the interest is less than inflation I feel aggrieved at being taxed on it
if I buy an asset which increases in nominal value (but not real value) due to inflation I object to paying CGT. Especially as this was changed retrospectively 12 years ago
if my frugal lifestyle means my children have to pay inheritance tax I think the really rich should not escape it with trusts

After A levels I went up for one disastrous trainee job interview,

I did not want to be a complete c£$t for the rest of my working life...

The fault for 'legal' tax avoidance lies with the unnecessarily over complex mystification system of bureaucracy
which serves only the vested lucrative interests of the powerful ruling greedy 'professional class'
who devised maintain, and administrate it

I reluctantly and angrily opted out of the benefit system ages ago.

My teacher wife was deemed to earn too much for me to get a penny in any benefits.
Despite tory austerity devaluing her salary so much
we exist on precarious credit...

I could however have signed on for NI credits,

At least 66 possibly higher by the time you get to 66 Punkfolkrocker.

Had my good lady been just 4 months older she would have qualified for a full state pension at the age of 60. As it is she had to wait a full 6 years and 1 month before she got the pension she had paid into since she was 16.

As the full state pension is now £164.35 per week she has effective been denied the equivalent of £51,000+ for which she contributed week in week out, month after month, year after year.

I think you may find that the 'full state pension' paid to those who retired at 60 is considerably less than £164.35 a week.
If not, I have been underpaid for years.

I defer to your greater knowledge Jos.

However I doubt if over the remainder of her life she will pick up the £51,000.
