Don't assume all accounting practices examine income tax issues from the company owner’s point of view or think about how money can be successfully obtained from that business to aid you. We do things differently. Our tax advice team works together with you to be aware of your objectives and provide extensive tax planning to suit these goals and optimise profits intended for distribution.
Whittingtons tax accountants provide you with the sensible assistance you will need, and this joined using our years of experience and knowledge means that you're in good hands.

Let our specialist tax accountants help you with:
• Personal Taxation
• Corporate Taxation
• Capital Gains Taxation
• Inheritance Tax
• Tax Investigations
• Share Schemes
• Trusts compliance
This really is a lot more than completing tax returns. Our normal annual individual tax compliance service involves:
• The completion and submitting to HMRC of Self Assessment tax returns and supporting activities.
• Calculation of taxation financial obligations.
• Advising of tax payments and due dates, including controlling payments or repayments as well as any interim instalments.
• Checking Self Assessment statements of account.
• Checking PAYE notices of coding.
• Dealing with small inquiries arising throughout the period including any discussion required with HMRC.
We handle other personal tax compliance as the need occurs, such as addressing national insurance contribution concerns, inheritance tax reporting and calculating capital gains tax financial obligations.
Our yearly service goes beyond filling out the forms and we critically review tax returns to see if they " look right " based on what we know of our customers. Have you delivered us all the information you delivered a year ago, or have you forgotten one banking account? We can't take away from you the eventual responsibility for getting ready the correct return, but by taking this additional care we may just assist to prevent that tax enquiry!
The company accounts for a business normally need adjusting for tax purposes to reach a taxable profit (or loss) rather than the company accounts profit (or loss ). These modifications are created on a tax computation during the time the reports are prepared. The modified figures are then used to put together individual, partnership or corporate tax returns.
We help businesses with the end of year PAYE returns including forms P35 ( irrespective of whether in support of our payroll team or otherwise ) and forms P11D (which require information on expenditures and benefits to be noted to HMRC on 6 July every year ).
We supply businesses with VAT assistance. We will help you with the preparing of your Value Added Tax returns, or ready them with the information you provide or recommend the VAT treatment of revenue or expenses.
We aid our corporate and business clients to meet their taxation commitments in lots of ways:
• We get ready tax computations modifying a company's accounts for taxation applications.
• We prepare company tax return form(s) CT600 for every accounting time period (NB a company's accounting time period for tax applications will not be always the same as the period that it prepares accounts !)
• We keep an eye on processing deadlines for business tax returns, support our clients submit their returns on time, and make sure that making all applicable tax claims on time.
• We inform clients of their company tax payments, normally falling due9 months following the end of an accounting time period( and 3 months ahead of the tax return has to be sent in ).
• We keep tabs on and compute other business tax liabilities, as an example liabilities to corporation tax on account of making financial loans to participators ( most commonly as overdrawn directors' loan accounts ).
• For larger businesses, we advise on the payment of quarterly instalments of corporation tax and in many cases assist them in relation to their estimations of profits in order that they may make precise payments.
Nonetheless, we don't just complete forms; we continuously think of ways to support our clients pay a lesser amount of tax.
For our several proprietor-managed companies, we look at the ideal tax position of both the company as well as its owners.
Tax planning is actually a primary activity of the business. Our team are all aware of the impact of the tax on business oriented financial transactions. Our taxation department provides professional support to our workforce and also to customers as soon as we are informed there's a taxation implication. The complexity of legislation now demands specialist tax planning to allow our clients legally to minimise their exposure to all taxes.
The taxation assistance we give is definitely customised to our clients' circumstances and specifics. Customers are rarely identical, so "one size fits all" can not work!
Typical taxation department planning contains:
• Reducing individual income tax or capital gains taxation, which includes deliberation over tax- efficient investment opportunities( including pensions, venture capital trusts, enterprise investment schemes, film partnerships and enterprise zone trusts - all in conjunction with our financial services department) or any other reliefs that may be out there.
• Tax preparing for businesses, which include diagnosing and optimising claims for relief, for example determining items entitled to capital allowances and enhanced capital allowances for power or water efficient plant.
• Corporation tax planning by optimising companies' tax relief claims, including planning for groups of companies.
• Remuneration planning for owners and critical staff members, such as dividend or fees planning, tax efficient payment and share incentive schemes.
• Estate and inheritance tax planning, including advising on the structure and content of wills and inheritance tax efficient investments.
• Trust planning, in conjunction with estate planning
• Planning for particular transactions, including company mergers, acquisitions, disposals or reorganisations, share buy- backs, or the acquisition or disposal of important financial assets.

A tax enquiry generally is a stressful time. We try to ease the anxiety for you personally in our dealings with the tax regulators. Of course, you remain liable for your own affairs, but we are able to manage the conduct of the enquiry and help guard your protection under the law, in addition, to counsel you of your respective accountability.
An HMRC tax enquiry might take numerous shapes. Perhaps it is:
• A random enquiry.
• An enquiry into a specific component of your ( or your business's) tax return, which may be addressed comparatively simply or which might be a lot more complex situation.
• A comprehensive enquiry into all your tax affairs for one or more years including, particularly, an in-depth overview of your books and reports of the company.
• A PAYE routine visit or perhaps 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 specialised topic.
Whatever the nature of the tax enquiry it is essential that you are well advised. You can not, unfortunately, count on the taxation regulators necessarily to determine the " correct " amount of taxation that you might have to pay. Some points will not be clear- cut and are open to interpretation – you must have your issues negotiated and presented for you personally in the most favourable light.
Some clients come to us with trusts that have been completely set up, other people have trusts that are developed as an element of our tax preparation assistance, such as inheritance tax preparation. the annual conformity work with trusts
