You must check the date from which these rules apply for the tax or duty you are dealing with. See CH81011 for full details.
A partnership submits an SA return for the year 2010-11 reflecting profits of £50,000.
The profits are shared by the partners on the following basis
Following an enquiry into the return the profits are increased by £10,000 and the revised profits of £60,000 are shared as follows.
Each partner is due to pay income tax at 22% and Class 4 NIC at 8% on their additional share of the profits.
For the purpose of calculating the penalty due from each partner, the potential lost revenue (PLR) is as follows.
|Partner A||£24,000 - £20,000 = £4,000 x 30% = £1,200|
|Partner B||£24,000 - £20,000 = £4,000 x 30% = £1,200|
|Partner C||£12,000 - £10,000 = £2,000 x 30% = £600|
