Expert Tax Accountants

Tax shouldn’t be taxing

Knowing how much money to set aside for tax and what taxes you are liable to pay can be very confusing. Knowing how to gain tax efficiency requires expert guidance.

As Chartered Accountants, we can offer you the advice you need to stay compliant with HMRC and keep on top of upcoming tax deadlines. We can register your business for all the applicable taxes as part of our company formation service and take care of all the tax filings.

Corporation Tax

Put simply, corporation tax is the tax that limited companies pay on their profits. As part of our service, we can register your company for corporation tax as well as prepare and file your corporation tax return which is usually due 12 months after the end of your company’s accounting period. We can also help with minimising your corporation tax liability by offering advice on tax-deductible expenses, purchases and R&D tax credits.

VAT

If your business has a VAT taxable turnover over £85,000, it is required to be VAT registered. Once registered your business must charge VAT on its invoices, pay any VAT due and file a quarterly VAT returns digitally. There are two VAT schemes, the Flat Rate Scheme or Standard Scheme.

We can help with registering your business for the most suitable VAT schemes and ensure that your VAT returns are Making Tax Digital compliant. If you are still working with spreadsheets then you should consider switching to us.

Self Assessment Tax

If you are self-employed, received untaxed income or are a director of a limited company, you are responsible to file your own tax and pay the tax that is due on the income earned. The UK tax year runs from 6th April to the following 5th April.

Self-assessments are due nine months after the tax year has ended, although we never recommend to leave it until the 31st January. As expert tax accountants, we can help ensure that you are aware in advance of how much money to set aside to meet your personal tax obligation and take care of the self-assessment filing.

Capital Gains Tax

Have you recently sold a property or transferred assets? You may be liable for capital gains tax. Capital gains tax is calculated on the increased value of the asset, not the total amount of money you receive.

You will only pay Capital gains tax on gains above your tax-free allowance in a particular tax year. In the 2019/2020 tax year the tax-free allowance for capital gains is £12,000.
