Taxation

As tax advisers, our objective is to work closely with you to ensure you pay the minimum tax that is required by law.

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

Tax legislation places a burden on the taxpayer, be it a corporate organisation, an individual, a sole trader or a partnership, to assess their respective tax liabilities themselves. Getting this wrong can result in penalties, which can be up to 100% of the liability. As a taxpayer, we can provide you with professional advice and support, to ensure you comply with complex tax legislation. Our professional team, based in Marylebone, are well equipped to assist you in this regard.

We understand the issues facing owner managed businesses and their need to minimise their tax liabilities.  We encourage you to seek our advice throughout the year for the preparation of periodic accounts, so you are able to continually measure the performance of your business. If necessary, we can provide practical suggestions that could result in a reduction in your tax liability or other costs.

The increased reporting obligations, investigation policies and harsher penalties for non-compliance imposed by HMRC, mean that time and resources can be spent dealing with this tax administration. We can help you to minimise this burden and give you more time back to invest in other aspects of your business.

We can assist you in the preparation of appropriate tax returns, whatever the nature of your business, in a timely and efficient manner

We have the necessary expertise and software to take the headache out of the compliance aspect of Self Assessment. We can provide you with practical advice on personal tax positions and make you aware of 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.

Our tax team can provide you with year-round advice on all aspects of personal tax.

We can also deal with high net worth individuals with complex UK and overseas incomes.

Death and taxes are certain in life, and with increasing wealth few of us plan sufficiently in advance to minimise our inheritance tax (IHT) liability.

We can help you to take advantage of timely and readily available tax planning opportunities in order to minimise your IHT bill.

When planning to transfer an estate, it is important that adequate provision is made for the individual and getting the right balance requires considerable skill and foresight - along with a detailed knowledge of current tax legislation. We provide a discreet, comprehensive estate planning service which 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
  • arranging adequate life assurance to cover potential inheritance tax liabilities.

We can also advise you on trust matters, including the tax advantages and how they can be used to shelter family wealth for future generations.

Ever changing regulations mean that VAT compliance can be a difficult and arduous administrative process. We can help you to comply with the regulations and ensure that the correct amount of VAT is paid. 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
  • forward planning in order to minimise any future VAT issues with HMRC
  • negotiating with HMRC in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals (if necessary)

Being the subject of a tax investigation by HMRC can be a stressful and worrying experience. With the onset of personal and corporate self assessment, HMRC can now review cases on a 'sample basis'. Consequently, every taxpayer is at risk of being investigated.

We have experience in dealing with HMRC investigations, whether the enquiries are related to an individual's tax return under the self assessment regime, or employer-related investigations into corporation tax returns, PAYE and P11D compliance.

If you find yourselves the subject of an investigation, we can provide you with expert help and support.

HMRC investigations undoubtedly result in additional accountancy work being carried out. The amount of work would depend on the complexity of the case, but the cost to your business could be substantial. With this risk in mind, it may be worth considering our Fee Protection Scheme which will protect you and your business from unexpected costs in the event that you are investigated.
