Tax can be complex and time consuming, especially when you get it wrong. Our clients trust us to pre-empt and solve the problems presented by tax so that they can focus on running their business.
Through our dedicated tax projects team, we can provide specialist advice when it comes to tax structuring and planning, including business restructuring, tax reliefs, passing down the business, exiting a business, trading internationally, and more.
We support many companies of varying sizes and structures, based in both the UK and internationally.
Our private client team of tax accountants provide a bespoke service with the objective of improving your financial position by ensuring you’re not paying too much or too little tax and seeking reliefs where they are available.
While everyone accepts there are good reasons for paying tax, not everyone takes proper advice to ensure they only pay what they are legally obliged to. There are also benefits and reliefs that may not be explored as individuals are unaware of them.
We will work with you to unlock these opportunities and structure your affairs in a way that is tax efficient, whether your assets are located in the UK or involve assets such as property abroad.
Rigorous planning and regular reviews are at the heart of our approach – we leave no stone unturned in considering the full implications of your personal and business circumstances.
This service extends beyond the preparation of personal tax returns to the consideration of your personal circumstances, using rigorous planning and regular reviews to ensure no stone is left unturned in considering the full implications of your tax position.
If HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) decide to investigate an individual or company’s tax return, it can be a highly stressful and uncertain time for anyone involved.
Each year, HMRC carries out a wide range of tax enquiries to ensure the right amount of tax has been paid. Its stringent process has recovered billions in additional tax revenue in recent years, achieved by targeting individuals using increasingly sophisticated software.
HMRC tax enquiries and investigations can be random or selective and have the aim of assessing whether a taxpayer has paid the right amount of tax.
With their in-depth knowledge of the investigative process, our specialist advisers can support you through any investigation, ensuring that you’re compliant, have all the facts and can secure the best possible outcome.
VAT can be a complex area which is why we have an experienced, specialist team dedicated to assisting you with your queries and offering support, making VAT less daunting.
Within our VAT team we have members who specialise in land and property, international transactions, charities, education, healthcare and finance.
Additionally, we like to keep you up to date with the latest key issues and matters which enable you and your business to make proactive business decisions. Our VAT services include advice, compliance and enquiries.
We can assist you with your VAT registration and advise the most effective method of keeping your VAT records up to date and compliant with HMRC’s requirements such as Making Tax Digital. You can choose to involve us as much or as little as you like when it comes to completing your VAT return from simply submitting your return on your behalf to a full bookkeeping service.
Everyone dreads that phone call from the VAT office to say they would like to inspect your VAT records. We recognise that VAT can be a complex area and innocent mistakes can easily be made. We offer a service to support our clients through the review and appeals process to ensure fair treatment where your VAT accounting treatment is challenged by the tax authorities.
