Our yearly service goes beyond filling in the forms and then we critically review tax returns to determine if they " look correct " depending on what we know of our customers. Perhaps you have sent us every piece of information you delivered a year ago, or have you forgotten one particular current account? We cannot take away from you the ultimate responsibility for getting ready a correct return, but by taking this extra care we may just help to prevent that tax enquiry!
The company accounts of the business enterprise normally need adjusting for tax purposes to reacha taxable profit (or loss) as opposed to the accounts profit (or loss ). These changes are created on a tax computation at the time the financial records are prepared. The fine-tuned figures will be used to put together personal, partnership or company tax returns.
We help corporations with end of year PAYE returns such as forms P35 ( whether in support of our payroll department or otherwise not ) and forms P11D (which demand information on expenses and benefits to be noted to HMRC by 6 July each year ).
In addition we supply corporations with VAT help and support. We may help you with the preparation of your Value Added Tax returns, or ready them from the information and facts you provide, or recommend the VAT management of revenue or costs.

• We put together tax information adjusting a company's accounts for tax requirements.
• We get ready company tax return form(s) CT600 for each accounting time period (NB a company's accounting time period for tax purposes will not be necessarily identical to the time period for which it prepares company accounts !)
• We keep an eye on filing deadlines for business tax returns, assist our customers distribute their returns on time, and make certain that making all acceptable tax claims in time.
• We inform clients of the business tax obligations, normally falling due9 months following the end of an accounting time period( and three months prior to the tax return must be submitted ).

However we do not just fill out forms; we continually consider ways to aid our clients pay out a reduced amount of tax.
For our several owner- managed companies, we consider the optimum tax position of both the business and its proprietors.
Tax planning is really a primary activity of the company. Our workforce are very mindful of the effect of taxation on business financial transactions. Our tax department gives professional assistance to our staff and to customers the moment we are conscious there exists a taxation implication. The complexity of legislation now requires expert taxation planning to enable our clients lawfully to reduce their exposure to all taxation.
The taxation assistance we give is obviously tailored to our customers' circumstances and specifics. Customers are seldom the exact same, so " one size fits all " doesn't work!
Common taxation department planning includes:
• Reducing individual taxes or capital gains taxation, including deliberation over tax- efficient investment strategies( which includes pensions, venture capital trusts, enterprise investment schemes, film partnerships and enterprise zone trusts - all in conjunction with our financial services division) or any other reliefs which may be readily available.
• Tax planning for companies, including identifying and optimising claims for relief, for instance determining items qualified to apply for capital allowances and enhanced capital allowances for electricity or water efficient plant.

A tax enquiry can be quite a stressful time. We try to alleviate the stress for you personally in our dealings with the tax authorities. Needless to say you remain liable for your own personel matters, but we can deal with the conduct of the enquiry and help safeguard your legal rights as well as advise you of your respective responsibilities.
An HMRC tax enquiry will take many different shapes. It can be:
• A arbitrary enquiry.
• An enquiry into a particular aspect of your ( or perhaps your company's) tax return, which could be taken care of relatively simply or which might be a more technical matter.
• A complete enquiry into your entire tax matters for a number of years which includes, particularly, an in depth look at your books and documents of your firm.
• A PAYE routine visit or perhaps in- depth enquiry.
• A " serious " investigation, which includes one by way of the Special Compliance Office which could be an enquiry into problems or into a significant industry matter.
Whatever the nature of the tax enquiry it is vital that you are well advised. You are unable to, regrettably, depend on the tax government bodies always to determine the " correct " level of tax that you may need to pay. Some points usually are not clear- cut and so are open to interpretation – you should have your issues negotiated and presented for you personally in the most constructive light.
Some customers come to us with trusts that have been established, other people have trusts that happen to be created as part of our taxation planning assistance, which includes inheritance tax preparation. the yearly compliance work for trusts
