Taxing Matters

"What's the difference between a taxidermist and a tax collector? The taxidermist takes only your skin." Mark Twain

Mark Twain may have summed up how many people feel about taxes and those who have the responsibility to collect them, but the reality is that understanding and managing your personal and business tax liability is now more than ever an area which needs specialist advice and regular review.

Tax Compliance

We make sure that all your tax returns are filed on time with no fines – we will remind you and make sure that you do not miss important cut off dates. This covers returns for limited companies, partnerships, sole traders and trusts.

We increasingly liaise with the Revenue on your behalf so that you can be sure what is said is in your best interest, saving you the problems of having to be a tax expert. The bottom line is we take the stress and responsibility of making sure your return is correct.

Tax Planning

Our primary aim is to minimize your tax liability and help you to avoid paying any unnecessary tax. We do this by reducing your tax liabilities including corporation tax, national insurance, income tax, inheritance tax, and capital gains tax.

The important issue is to appreciate that effective tax planning is focused on reducing future liabilities, so we provide proactive advice at every opportunity to help you make the right decisions.

Tax Investigation

This happens. And you need to be in the best possible position to have your accounts reviewed as HMRC is increasingly undertaking investigations for every type and size of business. We have extensive experience of helping you prepare for any investigation and will advise you at every stage.




We focus on 4 areas:

  • Tax Compliance
  • Tax Planning
  • Tax Investigations
  • Trusts
