Thanks

Hi

If it isjust a life assurance policy, then it is either posted to the directors loan account, or, is a benefit, which will be subject to directors personal tax, and would go in to an expense account, somewhere in the 70xx range, possibly 7002 directors renumerations.

If it is a life insurance policy to protect the company against loss of key personel then itcould be an expense, and put in the 82xx range, possibly 8204, which is just a standard insurance.

Gives a bit more info on the circumstance when an insurance policy may be a deductible expense.

If it's personal - Directors loan account If it's something like keyman insurance for the company - 8204 insurance. IMO blankstare

It's to protect the company against loss of key personnel. I'll put it to the general insurance code.

Thanks all

Just to confirm, it is the company and not the directors family that is the named recipient on the insurance policy isn't it?

If not you may hit problems with this as the insurance that you actually needed was Key Person Insurance (which will also cover for injury forcing prolonged absence) rather than life insurance.

At the end of the day the tax treatment is all dependant upon the final recipient of any payment on the policy.

Kind regards,

Shaun.
