Re: Eastbourne Tennis Swishing Stick

DAK what that thing which is at Eastbourne Tennis atm and is being swished over the grass please? Visible here https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/tennis/47966141 if one toggles back to about 10 minutes in.

Re: Do I need to submit an SA900 Trust Income Tax Return.

That would be great if it is true. Last year, on one, we sent a cheque for the grand total of £1.80 on interest income. I know nothing of the de minimis you mention. Can you recall where you may have read about it - such as at STEP or HMRC? Presumably you’ve already received a Notice to file or Tax ...

But even in the absence of such an express provision you would probably, by having received but not objected to the terms, be deemed to have accepted them anyway.

When Two Jabs threw the punch the guy was stood with both hands raised, palms open and showing. He posed a threat to noone. Prescott then hits him in the face. That's not how I see it.

Re: IHT on House left to children

If your estate is worth over £2m, the RNRB will be reduced by £1 for every £2 of value over £2m. This means that in this tax year (2017-2018) estates that are worth in excess of £2,200,000 will not benefit from the RNRB. I think you must have got that extract from the internet. This tax year being ...
