Paying much less tax and increasing the wealth you've created is very 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 getting rid of the administrative burden of tax compliance.
Not all accountancy practices examine income tax factors from the business owner’s mindset or consider how income might be proficiently obtained from that business to benefit you. We do things differently. Our tax advice staff works together with you to understand your objectives and offer comprehensive tax planning to suit these objectives and optimise profits readily available for distribution.
Whittingtons tax accountants provide you with the useful assistance you need, which joined with our years of experience and knowledge means that you're in good hands.

Let our qualified tax accountants support you with:
• Personal Taxation
• Corporate Tax
• Capital Gains Taxation
• Inheritance Tax
• Tax Investigations
• Share Schemes
This is certainly a lot more than filling out tax returns. Our typical yearly personal tax compliance service features:
• The completion and submission to HMRC of Self Assessment tax returns and supporting activities.
• Calculation of tax financial obligations.
• Advising of tax payments and due dates, which include balancing payments or obligations as well as interim instalments.
• Checking Self Assessment statements of accounts.
• Checking PAYE notices of coding.
• Dealing with modest inquiries coming up throughout the period including any dialogue essential with HMRC.
We deal with other personal tax compliance as the need occurs, such as managing national insurance contribution issues, inheritance taxes reporting and working out capital gains tax liabilities.
Our yearly service goes beyond filling in the forms and then we critically review tax returns to determine if they " look right " based on what we know of our clients. Have you delivered us all the information you delivered a year ago, or have you overlooked one savings account? We cannot take away from you the eventual responsibility for preparing a correct return, but by taking this additional care we may just help to avoid that tax enquiry!
The accounts of the business typically need altering for taxation purposes to attain a taxable profit (or loss) as opposed to the company accounts profit (or loss ). These adjustments are produced on a tax computation at the time the company accounts are prepared. The fine-tuned figures are then used to put together individual, partnership or corporate and business tax returns.
We help businesses with end of year PAYE returns which includes forms P35 ( irrespective of whether in support of our payroll department or otherwise not ) and forms P11D (which demand information on expenditures and benefits to be noted to HMRC by 6 July annually ).
We also offer companies with VAT support. We can assist you with the preparing of one's Value Added Tax returns, or ready them with the information and facts you provide or recommend the VAT management of gross sales or expenses.
Corporate And Business Taxation
We help our corporate clients meet their taxation obligations in many ways:
• We get ready tax calculations modifying a company's accounts for tax purposes.
• We put together business tax return form(s ) CT600 for each and every accounting period (NB a company's accounting time period for tax reasons is not always the same as the period that it prepares accounts !)
• We keep track of processing deadlines for company tax returns, assist our customers distribute their returns on time, and ensure that making all applicable tax claims on time.
• We advise clients of their company tax obligations, ordinarily falling due9 months after the end of an accounting period( and three months ahead of the tax return has to be filed ).
• We monitor and compute other company tax financial obligations, as an example liabilities to corporation tax resulting from making financial loans to participators ( most commonly as overdrawn directors' loan accounts ).
• For larger sized businesses, we advise on the settlement of quarterly instalments of corporation tax and in some cases assist them in relation to their estimates of profits so they can make precise payments.
However, we do not just fill out forms; we constantly think of ways to support our customers pay less tax.
For our many operator-managed companies, we consider the ideal tax position of both the business along with its proprietors.
Tax planning is actually a primary activity of the organisation. Our team members are all aware of the effect of the tax on business financial transactions. Our tax department supplies expert assistance to our staff members and to customers as soon as we're aware there exists a taxation implication. The complexity of regulation now demands professional tax planning to allow our clients legally to significantly lower their exposure to all taxes.
The taxation assistance we give is obviously tailor-made to our clients' situations and specifics. Customers are hardly ever the exact same, so " one size fits all " rule isn't followed!
Normal taxation department planning incorporates:
• Reducing individual taxation or capital gains tax, which includes reflection on tax- efficient investment decisions( such as pensions, venture capital trusts, enterprise investment schemes, film partnerships and enterprise zone trusts - all in conjunction with our financial services division) or other reliefs that may be available.
• Tax planning corporations, including identifying and optimising claims for relief, for instance, pinpointing items entitled to capital allowances and enhanced capital allowances for electricity or water efficient plant.
• Corporation tax planning by optimising firms' tax relief claims, including planning for groups of companies.
• Remuneration planning for proprietors and key employees, which includes dividend or fees planning, tax efficient remuneration and share incentive schemes.
• Estate and inheritance tax preparation, including advising on the structure and content of wills and inheritance tax efficient investment decisions.
• Trust planning, along with estate planning
• Planning for particular transactions, which include business mergers, acquisitions, disposals or reorganisations, share buy- backs, or even the purchase or disposal of significant financial assets.
• Consideration of the VAT benefits of transactions or Value Added Tax planning in general to improve the exposure of a business to VAT.
A tax enquiry can be a traumatic time. We attempt to ease the tension for you personally in our dealings with the tax regulators. Of course, you remain liable for your own personal matters, but we are able to handle the conduct with the enquiry and help guard your legal rights as well as advise you of the responsibilities.
An HMRC tax enquiry can take many different forms. It may possibly be:
• A random enquiry.
• An enquiry into a distinct aspect of your ( or maybe your company's) tax return, which could be addressed reasonably simply or which might be a more technical issue.
• An extensive enquiry into all your taxation affairs for several years which includes, particularly, an in-depth analysis of your books and files of your company.
• A PAYE routine visit or an in- depth enquiry.
• A " serious " investigation, which includes one with the Special Compliance Office which could be an enquiry into problems or into a significant industry topic.
No matter what character of your tax enquiry it is vital that you are well advised. You can't, regrettably, depend on the tax authorities necessarily to determine the " correct " amount of taxation that you may need to pay. Some points aren't clear- cut and therefore are open to interpretation – you should have your affairs negotiated and presented for you personally in the most constructive light.
Some customers come to us with trusts that have been established, others have trusts that are developed as part of our tax planning assistance, which includes inheritance tax planning. the annual compliance work with trusts

• Preparation of forms R185 ( statements of income from trusts or estates, or certificates of deduction of income tax ).
