Whether you are a sole trader, partnership or limited company you will need practical tax advice for all your financial decision-making. We will use straightforward language and clear explanations to establish practical solutions that keep your tax payments to a minimum.   Especially as the future prospects are for a general increase in taxes, this is more important than ever.

For example, HMRC’s R&D tax credit scheme allows companies to deduct an enhanced amount of qualifying expenditure on R&D activities when calculating their profit for tax purposes. Furthermore, in certain circumstances some companies may surrender this tax relief to claim cash back from the taxman!

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) can also request the following from you:


• Self assessment enquiries

• Tax investigations

• Employer compliance disputes

• Disclosures of tax irregularities

• Appealing VAT assessments
