Tax Planning Services

Service Overview


Whilst completion of tax returns and statutory tax obligations are important jobs, all accountants should be capable of completing them and advising you of your tax position and liabilities.
We try to do more than just this and are interested in maximising your tax planning opportunities.
We all have to pay our taxes but within the legal framework there are numerous ways of saving tax and making sure you do not pay a penny more than is absolutely necessary. We have extensive experience in this area of work and always fight as hard as we can for our clients.
We can help with tax planning in relation to...
• Personal taxes;
• Business taxes;
• Tax efficient employee remuneration strategies;
• VAT planning;
• Inheritance Tax strategies;
• Capital Gains;
• Profit extraction strategies;
• Employment status;
• IR35 advice.

Apart from extensive experience in this arena, we have invested heavily in reference materials and specialist software and have access to the Tax Legislation, Tax Cases, to the internal manuals of HMRC and to detailed commentary on all taxes, direct and indirect. This allows us to research any tax topic at all and provide many ways of helping you legally save tax.
New clients are often surprised at how much can be done to help with their tax position. We are always willing to go that extra mile to offer advice on the areas where tax can be saved. We enjoy this work!
It is important that this work is done in advance and you should contact us as soon as possible.
All of our Tax Planning makes legitimate use of the Tax Legislation and Case Law, so that you are not put at additional risk from a full HMRC Enquiry, or where there are risks, these are pointed out to you.


Business Tax Planning

Business tax is a major part of your trading costs. It is the increased reporting obligations, thorough investigation policies imposed by the tax authorities and tough penalties for non-compliance that means that a lot of time and resource is taken up collecting revenue for the Government.

We can assist you and your business by completing and filing business tax returns as well as preparing and submitting end-of-year payroll Tax Returns. By using us for your corporate tax and planning, means we can act as intermediaries for any disputes with the tax authorities.

As part of this service, we can help you with determining the most tax effective structure for your business by taking full advantage of tax opportunities and reliefs. It is our job to make sure that you achieve the best capital or revenue tax treatment as well as reducing your tax on disposals and maximising relief on acquisitions. There are also many tax opportunities specific to certain industries and our in-house expertise to help you tackle these.


Personal Tax Planning

With the tax regime becoming more complex, and more focus being put on taxpayers' individual responsibilities, everyone who is subject to taxation needs professional advice and support if they are to optimise their tax position and ensure they meet all the compliance requirements.

We can provide you with year-round tax advice on:
• income tax
• capital gains tax
• inheritance tax
• trusts and estates
• non-domiciliary tax issues

Every pound of income tax you save means more income at your disposal, every well planned disposal of assets means minimal loss of capital gains, and every inheritance tax saving means more benefit for your beneficiaries.

Make sure you take full advantage of the tax saving opportunities open to you - call us today for a personal tax planning review.
