Mr James and Mrs Jeena are married couple.
James was an employee in a MNC UK based company with salary of £8,000 per month till 30thJune 2018 (employer deducted PAYE of £4,800 for the salary income). On 30thJune 2018, James resigned his job and commencedhis own businessfrom 1stJuly 2018 with an expected Sales turnover of £20,000 per month.
You are a fresh graduate tax trainee and apart of the tax advisory team. The advisor has helped Mr James in filing returns for the last 5 years, taking care of all his personal and business income.Every year,Mr James has a habit of pressurising youto reduce his tax liability by investing in schemes like Individual Savings Account and National Savings Certificates, so that he can save tax to the extent of £3,000.
MrsJeena is a housewife, and did not have any taxable income till 30th June 2018. She however hadmisunderstanding with her husband and used to visit his office frequently to gather any information on hissavings, investment, tax liability, bank details, NIC, VAT, PAYE, etc. As you are Mr James’s tax advisor, Mrs Jeena had approached you several times to collect information in this regard, but has been unsuccessful till date.
Recently Mrs Jeena inherited a building (in UK) and a business (in Singapore) on the death of her mother on 1stAugust 2018. Her mother had given the building on rentand Mrs Jeenaagreed to continuewith the same tenant for a monthly rent of £5,000 from 1st August 2018.
As she was keen to know all tax related information of her husband, she decided to give her Tax work(tax calculation for Rental Income and tax filing etc.) to you. She submitted all documents relating to the building and business inherited by her from her motherand requested to consider the rental income effective from 1stJanuary 2019 onwards.
Mrs Jeena suggested that since theinherited businesswas in Singapore, there is less possibility of tracingout the income from Singapore business,and therefore insisted not to disclose the business inherited from her mother for tax purpose. Her knowledge on taxation is poor. She is not aware of the legislation at various levels- Local, Regional and International and how these legislations applies for both her husband’s and her income inUK andfor her business in Singapore.
As part of tax advisory team, you are asked to provide supporting and justified recommendations to Mrs Jeena for responding to and minimising the impact of legal and ethical constraints for the range of scenarios provided above.
