Not every accountancy practices have a look at taxation matters from the company owner’s mindset or take into account how revenue may be correctly extracted from that company to benefit you. We do things differently. Our tax advice team works with you to understand your targets and supply extensive tax planning to fit these targets and increase profits readily available for distribution.
Whittingtons tax accountants offer you the practical assistance you need, and this teamed using our experience and knowledge means you are in good hands.

Let our skilled tax accountants advise you regarding:
• Personal Tax
• Corporate Taxation
• Capital Gains Tax
• Inheritance Tax
• Tax Investigations
• Share Schemes
• Trusts compliance
This really is a lot more than completing tax statements. Our typical yearly personal tax compliance service includes:
• The completion and submission to HMRC of Self Assessment tax returns and supporting schedules.
• Calculation of tax liabilities.
• Advising of tax payments and payment dates, which include controlling payments or obligations or any interim instalment payments.
• Checking Self Assessment statements of accounts.
• Checking PAYE notices of coding.
• Dealing with minimal concerns coming up throughout the time period such as any dialogue necessary with HMRC.
We deal with other personal tax compliance as the need occurs, which includes dealing with national insurance contribution issues, inheritance tax reporting and determining capital gains tax liabilities.
Our yearly service surpasses filling out the forms, therefore, we critically evaluate tax returns to see if they "look right" depending on what we know of our clients. Perhaps you have delivered us all the information you delivered a year ago, or have you missed one banking account? We can't take away from you the eventual responsibility for preparing a correct return, but by taking this extra care we may just assist to avoid that tax enquiry!
The accounts of the business usually need modifying for tax purposes to reach a taxable profit (or loss) as opposed to the company accounts profit (or loss ). These alterations are created on a tax computation during the time the company accounts are prepared. The modified figures are used to prepare personal, partnership or corporate tax returns.
We assist companies with the end of year PAYE returns including forms P35 (regardless of whether in support of our payroll office or otherwise not) and forms P11D (which demand details of expenses and benefits to be documented to HMRC by 6 July annually).
Additionally, we provide corporations with VAT support. We may help you with the preparing of one's VAT returns, or prepare them with the details you supply or advise on the VAT treatment of sales or costs.
We support our corporate and business clients meet their taxation requirements in numerous ways:
• We prepare tax computations adjusting a company's accounts for taxation purposes.
• We prepare corporation tax return form(s) CT600 for every accounting period (NB a company's accounting period for taxation purposes isn't always identical to the time period for which it prepares company accounts !)
• We monitor filing due dates for company tax returns, assist our clients to submit their returns on time and make certain that making all acceptable tax claims in time.
• We inform customers of their business tax obligations, generally falling due9 months following the end of an accounting time period( and 3 months prior to the tax return should be submitted ).
• We keep track of and calculate other corporation tax financial obligations, as an example liabilities to corporation tax as a result of making loans to participators ( most commonly as overdrawn directors' loan accounts ).
• For larger sized companies, we advise on the settlement of quarterly instalments of corporation tax and even assist them with regards to their estimations of profits in order that they may make exact payments.
Nevertheless, we do not just complete forms; we continually think about methods to aid our customers to pay out a reduced amount of tax.
For our numerous owner- managed companies, we think about the best possible tax position of both the business and its owners.
Tax planning is a primary activity of the business. Our staff members are very mindful of the impact of the tax on commercial transactions. Our taxation division gives specialist support to our staff members and also to customers the moment we're informed there exists a tax implication. The complexness of legal guidelines now requires specialist taxation planning to allow our customers legally to significantly lower their exposure to all taxes.
The taxation assistance we give is obviously tailor-made to the clients' situations and facts. Clients are hardly ever the exact same, so " one size fits all " doesn't work!
Regular taxation department planning includes:
• Reducing personal tax or capital gains tax, which includes deliberation over 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) as well as other reliefs that may be out there.
• Tax preparing for businesses, including identifying and optimising claims for relief, for example identifying items qualified to receive 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 essential employees, such as dividend or fees planning, tax efficient payment and share incentive schemes.
• Estate and inheritance tax planning, including counselling for the structure and content of wills and inheritance tax efficient investment opportunities.
• Trust planning, along with estate planning
• Planning for particular purchases, including company mergers, acquisitions, disposals or reorganisations, share buy- backs, or even the acquisition or disposal of significant property and assets.
• Consideration of the VAT benefits of transactions or Value Added Tax planning in general to optimise the direct exposure of a business enterprise to Value Added Tax.
A tax enquiry can be quite a nerve-racking time. We attempt to alleviate the anxiety for you in your dealings with the tax authorities. Needless to say, you continue to be responsible for your own personal matters, but we can deal with the conduct of the enquiry and help defend your protection under the law along with advising you of your respective responsibilities.
An HMRC tax enquiry may take a number of shapes. Perhaps it is:
• A random enquiry.
• An enquiry into a particular facet of your ( or perhaps your business') tax return, which may be taken care of relatively simply or which could be a much more complex matter.
• An extensive enquiry into your entire tax matters for one or more years including, particularly, an in-depth look at your books and records of the company.
• A PAYE routine visit or perhaps in- depth enquiry.
• A " serious " investigation, including one from the Special Compliance Office which could be an enquiry into issues or into a significant industry subject.
No matter what the character of the tax enquiry it is vital that you are well advised. You can't, unfortunately, rely on the taxation respective authorities always to determine the " correct " level of tax that you may have to pay. A few points will not be clear- cut and they are exposed to interpretation – you'll want to have your matters negotiated and presented for you in the most constructive light.
Some customers choose us with trusts that have been completely established, others have trusts which might be created as an element of our taxation preparation guidance, which includes inheritance tax planning. the yearly compliance work for trusts

The annual compliance work for a trust involves the following, as most appropriate:
• Preparation of annual company accounts.
• Preparation of yearly income tax and capital gains tax calculations.
• Preparation of the trust's once-a-year self-assessment tax return.
• Advising the trustees of any taxation liability 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 routine enquiries on account of the submission of the tax return.
• Ensuring statements and elections are presented by the applicable due dates.
• Preparation of inheritance tax returns.
Besides the routine work completed contained in the regular annual compliance period, we can if requested look at the tax implications of any transactions the trustees need to apply as part of their duties as trustees, for instance:
• Appointing capital to beneficiaries;
• Adding new beneficiaries;
• Varying the terms of the trust; or
• Varying the investments within the trust.
We can also suggest a settlor of the trust wishing to incorporate additional funds for the trust or new trusts or perform additional tax planning which might impact on the trust.
