Accounts & Corporate Tax

If you assume a set of accounts is pretty much the same as another you won’t be totally wrong. The skill is to know how your accounts are different, what is important and getting it right every time, on time whilst having an expert advisor who can do all that and help you with the more interesting bits.

Most businesses need accounts in some shape or form, and we prepare accounts for sole traders, partnerships, LLP’s, charities and of course limited companies under UK GAAP as well as IFRS.

We have seen many companies complete their life cycle and will be able to help you understand how developments will impact your financial statements, and the view these give to your investors and lenders.


So how are we different?

We listen to your aspirations, and we work with you, guiding you on your journey.

We work with your other professional partners such as solicitors, employment advisors, to ensure that you and your business receive the best and most appropriate advice. The process will be completed on a timely basis allowing you to concentrate on the future, and not worry about the past.

We have a very experienced team specialising in preparing the annual Trust accounts, Tax returns and Inheritance Tax (IHT) returns in relation to ten-year, entry and exit charges.

We work with the trustees and their lawyers to ensure a full understanding of why the Trust exists, and what the plans are for the assets it holds. This collaboration allows maximum forward thinking so the Trustees can ensure they are aware of what might come – whether it be tax charges that may arise on the appointment of assets, or the ten-year charges.

The accounts we prepare for Trustees are bespoke to that Trust. The information and detail they present is tailored to what is important and beneficial to both the Trustees and the beneficiaries.

If you haven’t got a Trust set up but are interested in finding out whether it would be of benefit, get in touch with our Private Client team.

Tax investigations and disputes are increasingly common as the government finds ways to raise funds and, while our corporate tax processes are designed to minimise the risk of enquiries, they can never be eliminated completely.

We support clients responding to HMRC enquiries in all business and employment taxes, typically corporation tax, VAT and PAYE and our approach is resolve these in a timely and efficient manner to minimise costs and tax liabilities.

At a valued added service we encourage and arrange our clients to take up cost effective tax fee protection cover.

We also include a range of helpful tools and calculators to assist you and your corporation tax. You can find our tools guide here for quick assistance or get in touch with our team for further insight into our corporate tax services.
