VAT (Value Added Tax)
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 return digitally. There are two VAT scheme, the Flat Rate Scheme and the Standard Scheme.

R&D Tax Credits
If you are a UK company that is investing in innovative new products or services, then you may qualify for corporation tax relief. R&D Tax Credits exist to reward businesses that invest in innovation and can be also claimed where projects have been unsuccessful.
There is a vast amount of criteria that needs to be met in order to make a claim and it is not as straightforward as it may seem. We will take a detailed look at your qualifying activity and expenses and put together a maximised claim. We take a tailored approach to accounting and tax efficiency, contact us to learn more about how R&D Tax Credits work.
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.
Self Assessment Tax
If you are self-employed and received untaxed income or a director of a limited company, you are responsible to file a self assessment 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.
