Expert Tax Accountants
Paying significantly less income tax and increasing the wealth you have created is important when you work as hard as you do. Our tax accountants can help you in lessening your duty financial obligations, maximising your wealth and easing the administrative responsibility of taxation compliance.
Not all accountancy practices examine taxation factors from the company owner’s viewpoint, or consider how income might be proficiently extracted from that business to aid you. We do things differently. Our tax guidance team will work together with you to comprehend your targets and provide comprehensive tax planning to match these targets and increase profits readily available for distribution.
Whittingtons tax accountants give you the sensible assistance you'll need, and this joined with our years of experience and knowledge means that you're in good hands. Our team has relationships with HM Revenue and Customs, therefore we are always on top of our game and current with the newest changes and legislation.
Let our professional tax accountants aid you with:
• Personal Tax
• Corporate Tax
• Capital Gains Tax
• Inheritance Tax
• Tax Inspections
• Share Schemes
This is certainly a lot more than completing tax returns. Our normal annual personal tax compliance support includes:
• The completion and submitting to HMRC of Self Assessment tax returns and supporting activities.
• Calculation of taxation financial obligations.
• Advising of tax payments and payment dates, which include controlling payments or obligations and any interim payments.
• Checking Self Assessment statements of accounts.
• Checking PAYE notices of coding.
• Dealing with minor inquiries coming up during the time period such as any discussion essential with HMRC.
We handle other personal tax compliance as the need arises, including dealing with national insurance contribution issues, inheritance tax reporting and determining capital gains tax financial obligations.
Our annual service goes beyond filling out the forms and we critically review tax returns to ascertain if they "look right" according to what we know of our customers. Maybe you have delivered us every piece of information you sent a year ago, or have you overlooked one current account? We can't take away from you the supreme responsibility for setting up the correct return, but by taking this additional care we might just assist to avoid that tax enquiry!
The accounts of a company normally need changing for tax purposes to arrive at a taxable profit (or loss) as opposed to the company accounts profit (or loss). These corrections are made on a tax computation at the time the company accounts are prepared. The modified figures are then used to prepare individual, partnership or corporate and business tax returns.
We support corporations with end of year PAYE returns which includes forms P35 (regardless of whether in support of our payroll department or otherwise not) and forms P11D (which call for information on expenditures and benefits to be described to HMRC by 6 July annually).
We supply businesses with VAT support. We can help you with the preparing of your "Value Added Tax" returns, or ready them with the information and facts you provide or recommend the VAT treatment of gross sales or expenses.
We aid our corporate and business clients meet their taxation commitments in several ways:
• We get ready tax calculations modifying a company's accounts for tax applications.
• We get ready corporation tax return form(s) CT600 for each and every accounting period of time (Note: a company's accounting time period for taxation applications isn't necessarily the same as the period that it prepares accounts!)
• We keep track of processing due dates for business tax returns, support our clients submit their returns on time, and ensure that making all applicable tax claims on time.
• We advise customers of their business tax payments, generally falling due 9 months following the end of an accounting time period (and 3 months before the tax return needs to be sent in).
• We keep tabs on and compute other corporation tax liabilities, as an example liabilities to corporation tax due to making financial loans to participators (most often as overdrawn directors' loan accounts).
• For much larger companies, we advise on the settlement of quarterly instalments of corporation tax and perhaps assist them in relation to their estimates of profits in order that they will make accurate payments.
However, we do not just fill out forms; we continuously think about strategies to help our clients pay a lesser amount of tax.
For our several operator-managed businesses, we think about the the best possible tax position of both the business as well as proprietors.
Tax planning is a primary activity of the business. Our staff members are very mindful of the result of taxation on business oriented transactions. Our tax team provides expert support to our staff members and to customers the moment we are conscious there is a tax implication. The complexness of legislation now requires expert tax planning to allow our clients lawfully to minimise their exposure to all taxes.
The taxation advice we give is always tailored to the clients' situations and facts. Clients are hardly ever similar, so "one size fits all" rule isn't followed!
Regular taxation department planning features:
• Reducing individual income tax or capital gains tax, such as reflection on tax-efficient investment decisions (which include pensions, venture capital trusts, enterprise investment schemes, film partnerships and enterprise zone trusts - all in conjunction with our financial services unit) or any other reliefs which may be available.
• Tax planning for companies, including diagnosing and optimising claims for relief, as an example pinpointing items qualified to apply for capital allowances and enhanced capital allowances for energy or water efficient plant.
• Corporation tax planning by optimising firms' tax relief claims, including planning for groups of companies.
• Remuneration planning for proprietors and critical workers, which include dividend or fees planning, tax efficient payment and share incentive schemes.
• Estate and inheritance tax planning, which includes guidance on the construction and content of wills and inheritance tax efficient investment decisions.
• Trust planning, in conjunction with estate planning
• Planning for unique dealings, such as business mergers, acquisitions, disposals or reorganisations, share buy-backs, or the acquisition or disposal of important assets.
• Consideration of the VAT ramifications of purchases or "Value Added Tax" planning in general to optimise the direct exposure of a company to Value Added Tax.
A tax enquiry generally is a traumatic time. We attempt to relieve the stress for you in your dealings with the tax regulators. Naturally, you remain accountable for your own personal affairs, but we are able to deal with the conduct of the inquiry and help safeguard your protection under the law along with counsel you of your obligations.
An HMRC tax enquiry normally takes a number of shapes. It might be:
• A random enquiry.
• An enquiry into a specific element of your (or perhaps your company's) taxes, which could be handled fairly simply or which could be a more specialised matter.
• A complete enquiry into all your taxation affairs for one or more years such as particularly, a detailed review of your books and files of your firm.
• A PAYE routine visit or even an in-depth enquiry.
• A "serious" investigation, such as one by the Special Compliance Office which could be an enquiry into issues or into a significant technical matter.
No matter the nature of the tax enquiry it is essential that you are well advised. You are unable to, sad to say, count on the tax respective authorities always to ascertain the "correct" amount of tax that you may have to pay. Some points will not be clear-cut and are generally exposed to interpretation – you need to have your matters negotiated and presented for you in the most beneficial light.
Some customers choose us with trusts that have been set up, others have trusts which are created as part of our taxation planning guidance, which includes inheritance tax scheduling. The yearly compliance work with trusts:
• Dealing with any technical issues as a result of the process of the trust
The annual compliance work for a trust consists of the following, as suitable:
• Preparation of yearly accounts.
• Preparation of yearly income tax and capital gains tax data.
• Preparation of the trust's once-a-year self-assessment tax return.
• Advising the trustees of any taxation obligation and due dates of payment.
• Preparation of forms R185 (statements of income from trusts or estates, or certificates of deduction of income tax).
• Submission of the financial records, income tax calculations and the tax return to HM Revenue and Customs.
• Dealing with regular inquiries as a result of the submission of the tax return.
• Ensuring statements and elections are submitted by the appropriate due dates.
• Preparation of inheritance tax returns.
Besides the routine work executed included in the typical yearly compliance period, we can if requested look at the tax implications of any financial transactions the trustees would like to apply as part of their responsibilities as trustees, by way of example:
• appointing capital to beneficiaries;
• adding new beneficiaries;
• varying the terms of the trust; or
• varying the investment funds in the trust.
We can also recommend a settlor in the trust who wishes to add further finances for the trust or new trusts or perform additional tax planning which may impact on the trust.
