- Excerpt from Proposed Changes to Partnership Tax Rules:

United Kingdom -

The UK Government is concerned that the current partnership tax rules create scope for tax avoidance through the use of the Limited Liability Partnership (“LLP”) structure to disguise employment relationships and the manipulation of the allocation of profits and losses among partnership members. To address these concerns, on 20 May 2013, the UK Government published a consultation paper setting out proposed changes to the tax rules for partnerships and LLPs. Draft legislation is expected to be published in late 2013, with any changes coming into force on 6 April 2014.
