The CII AF2 April 2019 Exam in Review
Here, we look at the CII AF2 (Business Financial Planning) exam paper from April to see what was tested from the syllabus this time. This is useful reading for those preparing for the October sitting of the AF2 exam.
The CGT Consequences of Asset Disposals Between Spouses
This article discusses an area that often comes up in the CII multiple-choice and written exams: the capital gains tax consequences of disposals between spouses and civil partners – of interest to those studying for any of the CII AF1, AF2, AF4, AF5, CF1, J03, R03 or R06 exams.
We were recently asked about one of our questions that tests how dividends are taxed; this type of question can appear in any of the exams that covers income tax and investments, so potentially LP2, CF1, R02, R03, R06, AF1, AF4 and AF5!
How to Determine Periodic and Exit Charges on a Discretionary Trust
Discretionary trust taxation came up on the most recent CII AF1 paper, and as much as we have covered this subject before, it seems a timely reminder for those thinking of sitting this exam in the future – also useful reading for J02, R03, R06 and AF5 exam takers.
