Not all accountancy practices take a look at taxation matters from the company owner’s viewpoint or think about how funds may be successfully extracted from that company to aid you. We do things in a different way.

We cannot take away from you the eventual obligation for getting ready the correct return, but by taking this additional care we may just help to prevent that tax enquiry!
The company accounts of a business enterprise generally require altering for tax purposes to arrive at a taxable profit (or loss) rather than the company accounts profit (or loss). These changes are made on a tax computation at the time the financial records are prepared. The fine-tuned figures will be used to get ready individual, partnership or corporate tax returns.

We provide companies with VAT help and support. We will help you with the preparing of your VAT returns, or prepare them with the details you provide or advise on the VAT treatments for gross sales or costs.

For our many owners- managed companies, we think about the optimum tax position of both the company and it is proprietors.

An HMRC tax enquiry normally takes a variety of forms. It may be:
• A random enquiry.
• An enquiry into a particular aspect of your ( or your company's) tax return, which could be taken care of comparatively simple or which might be a much more specialised matter.
• A comprehensive enquiry into all your taxation matters for one or more years including, in particular, an in-depth overview of your books and records of your firm.
• 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 issues or into a significant industry matter.

You can't, regrettably, depend upon the taxation government bodies always to establish the " correct " level of tax that you may have to pay. A few points usually are not clear- cut and are exposed to interpretation – you'll want to have your issues negotiated and presented for you in the most beneficial light.
