Thanks, ***** ***** still a very small margin for error or mischance.
I sent off the papers as you advised yesterday to HMRC, but I would still be grateful if you could advise
- Any further action by me, which could speed up the process.
- When is the absolute deadline for HMRC receiving the deed of variation? And when should it be sent and by what means to guarantee beating the deadline of 20 January 2015 ?
any other advice, of course , welcome.
thank you very much
Thanks, ***** ***** to be absolutely sure, as long as the deed is signed and dated by the relevant parties before January 20, 2015 (death occurred 2 years before)is that sufficient for the deed to take be in place?
Is there a deadline by which the deed needs to be submitted to HMRC?
You will see that we are applying for an exemption from 40% to 36%, which I presume requires authorisation from HMRC having seen the deed of variation. Is that correct?
I I have spoken to HMRC charities which insists that that processing takes 10 weeks which takes us very near the 20 January deadline.
Does the charity need to receive approval from HMRC before we sign in order to gain the tax exemption, or would it be acceptable to sign the deed of variation before January 20 - without approval - and then submit it to HMRC once approval has been granted ?
I have checked your helpful link but could find no guidance on this crucial aspect .
I look forward to this final word from you .
