Income tax is an essential part of a lawyer’s knowledge and professional training. Whilst it is not necessary to have knowledge to the extent that a specialist tax lawyer would have, it is necessary to have knowledge and understanding sufficient to recognise its implications as they arise and affect the client and ourselves. This chapter discusses sources of income tax law; collection and payment of income tax; rates of income tax and allowances; calculation of income tax; sources of taxable income; and charitable giving. This chapter covers the changes introduced by the March 2020 Budget.
