Most businesses are started as a result of a good business proposition. The entrepreneur may have the technical know-how and a firm commitment to make a success of the business proposition; however he will need proper guidance and sound advice on various matters including choosing the appropriate business structure, preparation of a business plan, registration procedures, legal formalities to make a success of the business proposition.
Constructive practical advice at this stage is very crucial to the future of the business.
Although producing regular, meaningful financial information is crucial to the management of any business, Accountancy is no longer about a summation of facts and figures. The preparation of accounts is often seen as an end in itself whereas they are the means to interpret the trends in the business, both positive and negative.
We believe that no accounts are too small to prepare. Irrespective of the size of your business, be it sole trader, partnership or owner managed companies, we will ensure that your accounts are prepared in compliance with the requirements of the Inland Revenue, Company's Law and such other UK authorities. We advise on and assist in the maintenance of appropriate levels of financial records. We will also analyse and explain the figures to you.
TAX PLANNING AND ADVICE
When looking for tax advice, it pays to seek a Chartered Tax Advisor. Efficient tax planning would mean significant improvements to any business's bottom line –profit. Our professional expertise and pro-active approach helps to create imaginative and profitable solutions to maintain a healthy bottom line.
Tax, unfortunately, cannot be an afterthought as the success or failure of a business venture can often depend on effective tax planning. We will work closely with you and will discuss in advance the tax implications of your business decisions with a view to provide certainty about your financial affairs. Great care must be taken to ensure that your business plans are considered in the light of all taxes and not just the particular tax under review.
People and businesses are subject to a wide range of taxes including Income tax, Corporation tax, Capital Gains tax, Inheritance tax and Value Added Tax, to name a few. Through tax planning, our job is to minimise the exposure of individuals and businesses to tax within UK law.
We provide a highly expert service for complex tax affairs as well as for specialist one-off tasks.
TAX ENQUIRY AND INVESTIGATIONS
The Inland Revenue undertakes routine enquiries and investigations from time to time, which if not handled professionally, could prove to be highly stressful to you. We can act as your agent, dealing with the Inland Revenue directly on your behalf, should you be selected for an enquiry or investigation, thereby freeing up your time and energies considerably.
PERSONAL & BUSINESS TAXATION
Anyone in business, whether as a Sole trader or a Partnership, is liable to pay income tax on their business profits. Our job is not simply to calculate and tell you how much tax you are due to pay. We adopt a pro-active approach whereby we provide you help and advice so that you may plan your business activities in order to maximise the available tax relief.
Individuals are liable to pay income tax on most types of income, including income from employment, self employment and investment income. Every Pound of income tax saved means more income at your disposal. We are Chartered Tax Advisors and we can provide year round advice on the tax saving opportunities open to you.
Self Assessment Tax
DID YOU KNOW??
1 in every 5 Tax Returns submitted is late!
3 in every 10 Tax Returns are wrong!
Not only that, but also in the first year of the self-assessment tax regime alone nearly 800,000 taxpayers received £100 penalties for failing to submit their tax returns on time. This is because the UK system of `self-assessment' automatically hands out penalties for late submission of tax returns. The constant stream of changes to the tax regime also means that many taxpayers struggle to understand these changes and end up completing the tax returns either incorrectly or not submitting them at all.
We can save you a lot of time, worry and money by dealing with your Income Tax Returns under the Self-assessment regime. Our expert knowledge can help you minimize your liability and make full use of the allowances available to you.
Our Taxation service is second to none. Whether your Tax Return is simple or complex and whether you are resident in the UK or not, we guarantee you your Tax Return will be dealt with by a Chartered Tax Advisor, ensuring you quality and reliability.
Coming into or leaving the UK
If you are coming into or leaving the UK, you need to submit the appropriate forms to the Inland Revenue to ensure that they are aware of your tax residence status in the UK. We can assist you in determining your correct tax status and submitting the relevant forms. At the same time we can make a claim for any tax overpayment on your behalf.
Tax residence status can also present one with tax planning opportunities. We can provide the appropriate advice.
Inheritance tax (IHT) is a tax payable on the value of an individual's estate on death. However, Inheritance tax also becomes payable during an individual's lifetime on certain type of gifts.
Inadequate planning of Inheritance tax matters could result in substantial tax bills which you would be liable to pay out of your estate before it passes to your beneficiaries. With our tax expertise and your careful planning, you can ensure that the tax bill on death is minimised and that much of your estate is passed on to your beneficiaries and not to the Inland Revenue by way of tax.
Capital Gains Tax
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is payable on the sale or transfer of an asset. Broadly speaking, the appreciation in the value of an asset between the time it was acquired and the time it was disposed of, attracts Capital Gains Tax.
Inland Revenue stipulates that the sale or transfer of assets must be reported to them and the failure to do so can result in severe penalties. Complex calculations are involved in the calculation of Capital Gains Tax and reliefs available. The timing of the disposal of an asset is of immense importance to ensure that you do not lose any available tax relief. Therefore, if you are planning to sell or transfer an asset, it is important that you speak to a tax advisor in advance.
Companies are legal entities and are liable to pay corporation tax on their profits for each accounting period, which include both income and chargeable gains.
National Insurance (NI) applies to the employed, employees and the self-employed. National Insurance is an additional cost affecting all individuals and employers. The importance of National Insurance cannot be overstated as it is National Insurance Contributions that enable individuals to claim various benefits such as State retirement pension, jobseeker's allowance, maternity benefit, certain type of sickness benefit, incapacity benefit, widow's benefits, amongst others. National Insurance Contribution calculations are riddled with complications and it is important to ensure that contributions are not over or underpaid.
