Tax Planning & Advice

We offer advice on a Corporate and Personal Level.

Tax planning is a vital ingredient of survival and financial well-being. It is not necessarily what you earn, but what you get to keep that is important.

The ever-increasing complexity of tax legislation, case law and Revenue practice in the United Kingdom makes specialist advice essential.

We have always placed a high priority on tax planning and have a specialist tax department. The current team aim to provide a service that combines pro-activity and advice.

Nearly all business and personal financial decisions have tax implications and it is best to consider the tax position in advance. Quite often with one-off transactions savings can be achieved by using the correct structure.

Tax planning should not just be looked at as a one-off event however. Our involvement in setting up a business structure or estate planning regime and subsequent on-going advice will produce substantial savings in the long term.

Computerised Book-Keeping, VAT & Payroll

Where clients do not have sufficient expertise or time in their business schedule we provide a book-keeping service. Client’s records will be maintained on our own computers using modern software, which can be tailored to your requirements. Monthly accounts are produced as well as lists of debtors/creditors, comparisons to budget, bank reconciliation’s etc.

VAT compliance and returns are also provided as part of the service. We ensure that all aspects of your vat requirements are complied with and that your returns are prepared with ample time to meet deadlines.

 

Payroll Administration

One of the more time consuming and daunting aspects of business administration is the operation of the company payroll.

This necessary administrative role frequently requires expertise, which is not always available to the entrepreneur and growing business, and often produces confidential information that the owners may not want their staff to know.

We operate a payroll bureau service for our clients to help relieve them of this burden, so that they can concentrate on those areas of their business in which they are experts. We will ensure that your payroll is produced on time and that starters, leavers and payroll changes are dealt with efficiently.

That the various statutory deadlines are met, including advising you of the monthly payment of PAYE and NIC.

All end of the year end Returns, including the P35s, P6Os and Pl4s are produced. Our service provides flexibility not available from the usual Payroll Service Bureaus and a level of confidentiality that is difficult to achieve in-house.
