School Fees Planning

Are you a business-owner?

Children in private school?

How much are you paying in school fees annually?

The average cost of private school is £15,000 per annum.

If you draw a salary from your business to cover the school fees, you'll suffer tax of almost £11,000!!

If you are paying for them by drawing dividends the tax suffered is over £7,000!!

There is a tax efficient structure which can reduce these tax costs.

The use of a family trust can utilise your children's tax free allowances and cover the costs of school fees and other expenses of your children.

How does it work?

In a nutshell:

Shares in your company are gifted to a family trust

Your children are beneficiaries of the trust. 

Dividends are paid to these shares

Their tax free allowances result in the dividends being subject to tax at 0%

The tax-free dividends are used to pay the school fees

You've saved £000's!

(HMRC are aware of such structures and have been for many years)
