Business Tax Accountants

We aim to minimise our clients’ corporation tax liability by taking full advantage of all tax reliefs and opportunities available.

Corporation Tax Returns

We will have a detailed discussion with the client about their business. We will look into including all valid business expenses (based on HMRC guidelines) that can be offset against taxable income resulting in minimising the tax liability. We also take responsibility for submitting all figures to HMRC within the relevant timescale.

Capital Gains Tax

Capital Gains Tax is triggered on selling any asset and as a result specialist tax consultancy and assistance is required in this highly complex area to ensure all allowances, reliefs and differing tax rates are considered to mitigate your liability wherever possible.

VAT Returns

We can help you with all matters relating to VAT –such as if and when a business should register (or de-register) for VAT, investigating eligible VAT schemes, preparing VAT returns and liaising with HMRC. We make sure our clients are aware of the timescales involved so late registrations, returns and payments and therefore possible penalties are avoided.

R&D Tax Relief

Research and Development tax relief (230% for SMEs and 130% for large companies) is available to SMEs and large companies as long as specific criteria are met, and we can advise if an organisation is eligible to apply.

Personal Tax Accountants

We will review your personal tax situation to ensure your return is not only completed accurately, but we will also take advantage of any opportunities available to minimise your tax bill.

Self-Assessment Tax Returns

Individuals may have to pay tax in several areas, including self-employment income, dividend income, savings interest and inherited assets. The amount of tax to be paid depends on different circumstances. We prepare hundreds of personal tax returns and our clients benefit from our knowledge and experience of minimising tax liabilities.

Capital Gains Tax

Profit on sale of an asset (for example land, property or shares), may be subject to capital gains tax. Calculations in this area can be complex as there are many different rates of tax to consider. Also, the timing of such sale plays a critical role in determining one’s tax liability.
