The latest Business Support Update from Streets Chartered Accountants takes a closer look at the Self Employed Income Support Scheme, VAT changes and Directors Loan Accounts.
A fifth grant covering May 2021 to September 2021 will be open to claims from late July 2021. The grant is taxable and will be paid out in a single instalment. Guidance for claiming the grant will be available by the end of June 2021.
HMRC defines a director’s loan as money taken from your company that isn’t either:
- A salary, dividend or expense repayment.
- Money you’ve previously paid into or loaned the company.
You record all other withdrawals in your DLA. The ‘account’ part of the terminology isn’t a physical account, its simply the record you need to keep of the money that you withdraw and pay into the company. Each company director has to have their own DLA and retain records.
This online event is a special update for those interested in property matters, including investors, developers, and those with residential lettings. The last year certainly has been unprecedented for all including those involved and engaged in the property sector.

As always, there are many interesting points to pick up on, including case law reminding us of the VAT Penalties Regime and how it applies in the case of an understated HMRC assessment.
These include HMRC Digital Services Update, Simplifying the VAT Land Exemption, UK Case Law and three HMRC Updates – Change to VAT treatment of roller blinds, VAT liability of juice cleanse programmes and the VAT liability of charging of electric vehicles.
Text Each year HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) will undertake a number of tax enquiries into individuals and businesses in order to ensure that they have paid the right amount of tax. Since 2010 HMRC have strengthened their approach from this point of view and there has been a year-on-year increase in the number of tax enquiries opened.
