On Wednesday's Money Box Live, Vincent Duggleby took your questions about personal and small business tax planning.

With the end of the financial year just weeks away you may want to consider making the most of your tax free and tax deductible allowances.

Do you understand how the tax system works?

What reliefs are there on savings, pension contributions or gifts to charity?

When do you need to pay Capital Gains Tax and what happens if you make a loss?

You may have a query about tax refunds or reclaiming overpaid tax.

Whatever your concern, our panel of experts were here to give you advice.

Vincent Duggleby was joined by:

• John Whiting, Tax Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers

• Jane Moore, Tax Faculty technical manager, Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW)
