Quantified Impacts of IFRS 9: Initial Findings

At the end of February 2018, all the major European banks published information on the impact of the implementation of the new standard IFRS 9. IFRS 9 introduces numerous changes (classification, impairment, hedging, etc.). Their impacts at the transition date vary widely from one bank to another. They are negative in most cases, but for some banks are virtually nil or even positive. The indicators used are also variable: though the impact on the CET1 ratio is a firm common indicator, the level of further detail reported varies significantly from one institution to another.

Change In Basis Of Assessment For Employment Income

In line with measures introduced in Finance Act 2017, with effect from 1 January 2018, an employee will be charged to tax on employment income in the year in which the income is “paid”. Previously, an “earnings” basis applied such that employment income was taxable in the year in which it was earned, notwithstanding that it was paid and subject to PAYE withholdings in a subsequent tax year (e.g. bonus payments).

Professional Membership Fees

From the years 2004 to 2010, a specific tax relief allowed an employer to pay/reimburse as tax-free the annual professional membership fees on behalf of employees where the membership was regarded as “relevant” to the business of the employer. This relief was removed from 2011 onwards with the result that professional membership fees paid/reimbursed by an employer will only qualify as tax-free in the hands of an employee under general principles, i.e., where the fees are incurred “wholly, exclusively and necessarily” by the employee in the performance of their duties.
