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 will calculate your company's tax liability and assist with the calculation of any quarterly instalment payments. We understand the issues facing owner-managed businesses and can prepare tax returns in a timely and efficient manner.
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 liability 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 many tax opportunities available and the earlier arrangements are made, the greater the chance of taking full advantage of our complicated tax system.
It is important when planning to transfer an estate that adequate provision is made. Getting the right balance requires considerable skill and foresight – along with a detailed knowledge of the current tax regime. We provide a discreet comprehensive estate planning service that includes:
- help with planning and reviewing a will;
- making full use of exemptions and lower tax rates on lifetime transfers;
- optimising lifetime transfers between family members;
- transferring agricultural or business property;
- transferring assets into trust; and arranging adequate life assurance to cover potential inheritance tax liabilities.
We also have experience in dealing with trusts; a very tax efficient way to set aside assets for future beneficiaries outside the inheritance tax net. We can advise on the most suitable type of trust to fulfil your wishes, assist in setting up the trust and provide the full range of accounting services required for trust management.
