As tax advisers, our objective is to work closely with you to ensure you pay the minimum tax required by law. We will help you to understand the tax implications of your actions, in order that you can plan ahead 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.
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 (including sole-traders and partnerships)
We advise on income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.
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 positions and the planning opportunities available to you. 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
Today, more and more emphasis is being put on taxpayers' individual responsibilities and 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.
Few of us like to think about dying, however the relevant legislation requires us to plan well in advance. This means making the necessary provisions now. There are tax opportunities available and the earlier arrangements are made, the greater the chance of taking full advantage of our complicated tax system.
Ever changing regulations and the growing demands of HMRC mean VAT compliance can be a difficult administrative process. To help you manage this complex area, we provide an efficient, VAT service, which includes:
- assistance with VAT registration
- VAT control and reconciliation
- help with completing VAT returns
- planning to minimise future problems with HMRC and
- negotiating with HMRC in disputes.
Being the subject of a tax investigation by the HMRC can be a stressful and worrying experience. With the onset of personal and corporate self-assessment, HMRC staff can now review cases on a 'sample basis'; consequently, tax investigations have become more frequent. We have experience in dealing with HMRC investigations, whether they are enquiries into an individual's Tax Return under the Self Assessment regime, more detailed enquiries or employer-related investigations into PAYE and P11d compliance.
We arrange for insurance cover to protect you and your business from the unexpected costs arising from a full investigation by H.M. Revenue and Customs.
