Taxation

As tax advisers our objective is to work closely with you to ensure you minimise taxation operating within accounting standards and principles, and as required by law.

We will help you to understand the tax implications of your actions, in order that you can plan and conduct your affairs in a tax efficient way.

Corporation tax services

Under Corporation Tax Self Assessment (CTSA), the legal responsibility for correctly calculating the corporation tax liability falls on business owners. We understand the issues facing owner-managed businesses and can prepare tax returns in a timely and efficient manner. We will also calculate your company's tax liability and assist with the calculation of any quarterly instalment payments due.

The increased reporting obligations, investigation policies on the part of the tax authorities and harsher penalties for non-compliance mean that your time and resources can be taken up with tax administration. We will help to minimise corporate tax exposure and relieve the administrative burden of compliance with current tax legislation. Effective corporate tax planning can also result in significant improvements in your bottom line.

Personal tax services (including sole-traders and partnerships)

We are specialists in income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

Self Assessment

We have the expertise and software to take the headache out of the form filling and compliance aspect of Self Assessment. We can provide you with practical advice on personal tax and the planning opportunities available to you. Over recent years HMRC have increased the penalties for failing to file a return on time and for errors. We can complete tax returns, calculate any tax liability and advise you on exactly when to make payments and how much to pay.

Personal tax planning

Everyone who is subject to taxation needs professional advice and support if they are to optimise their tax position and ensure they meet the compliance requirements. We can provide you with year-round advice on all aspects of personal taxation.

VAT

Ever changing regulations and the growing demands of HMRC mean VAT compliance can be a difficult administrative process. We can help to ensure that you comply with the regulations and that overpayments are not made. To help you manage this complex area, we provide an efficient, cost-effective VAT service, which includes:

  • assistance with VAT registration
  • advice on VAT planning and administration
  • use of the most appropriate scheme
  • VAT control and reconciliation
  • help with completing VAT returns
  • planning to minimise future problems with HMRC

HMRC Investigations and Enquiries

Tax investigations or enquiries by HMRC can be a stressful and worrying experience. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with HMRC, whether they are enquiries into an individual’s Tax Return, more detailed enquiries into a company’s affairs or employer-related issues regarding PAYE and P11d compliance. We can provide expert help, support and assistance.

Tax protection

With the increased risk of such investigations it may be worth considering taking out an insurance policy to protect you and your business from unexpected costs; an investigation will undoubtedly result in additional accountancy work being undertaken. The amount of work will depend upon the complexity of the case, but the cost could be substantial.
