A round up of other news this week.
HMRC have published P9X (2106), which sets out for employers which tax codes should be used from 6 April 2016.
HMRC have confirmed that for the purpose of Tonnage Tax flagging rules 2016 will not be an ‘excepted year’. This means that if, during the year beginning 1 April 2016, a shipping company in the Tonnage Tax regime starts to operate a ship that is not registered in an EU/EEA member state, then they must carry out a ‘flagging test’ to determine whether the ship qualifies for Tonnage Tax.
