Managing the Affairs of Missing People Law Passed

21st July, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

With the general election hogging the headlines, the passing of the Guardianship (Missing Persons) Act 2017, which received Royal Assent on 27 April 2017, went almost unreported. Although the date on which the Act will come into force has not yet been set, it is a welcome addition to the statute books as it will allow the affairs of missing persons to be dealt with by their loved ones. Currently, there is no simple way that allows the affairs of such people to be managed or for many actions to...

18th July, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

An interesting use of the law relating to the sale of goods helped a couple whose all-inclusive holiday was ruined by gastroenteritis claim compensation from travel group First Choice recently.

You can claim tax relief if assets that you have acquired become worthless or loans that you have advanced prove to be irrecoverable. However, in a case that will be required reading for tax professionals, the Upper Tribunal (UT) has ruled that the right to claim such losses for tax purposes does not survive your death. An investor had bought shares in two companies that became valueless and had made a loan of more than £330,000 that had to be written off. He died in a motoring accident before he...
