Qualifying Companies – The tax rules you should know 2022 (webinar)

Although the qualifying company regime was superseded by the look-through company regime on 1 April 2011, qualifying companies existing at that date continue to operate under the regime. To remain a qualifying company, it is necessary to satisfy a number of requirements. Special rules apply to dividends from qualifying companies that determine the extent to which the dividend is taxable or tax-exempt.

This webinar will examine:

  • the requirements a company must continue to satisfy to remain a qualifying company
  • the special rules that apply to dividends paid by qualifying companies
  • income tax issues that arise when a qualifying company is wound up

Upon satisfactory completion of this activity you will:

  • be aware of the shareholding and election requirements that need to be satisfied to remain a qualifying company
  • understand when distributions from qualifying companies are tax exempt
  • be aware of potential pitfalls when winding up a qualifying company

Suited to:

This webinar is intended for accountants whose client base includes qualifying companies. It will provide the experienced practitioner with a refresher on how the qualifying company regime works, as well as providing newer practitioners with the knowledge they require to work with complying companies.
