Taxes are an inevitable fact of life for businesses, individuals and charities. The tax office takes the view that “ignorance is no excuse” and all taxpayers are expected to be familiar and comfortable with the increasing bureaucracy and complexity of the tax system.
We can advise you on a wide range of taxes, from birth until retirement and can discuss different tax planning approaches, and if required assist you with any tax investigations and audits.
We are able to advise corporate and personal clients on how to minimise their liability and we take care to apply our knowledge and experience to solve tax problems and advise on measures to mitigate liabilities within the law. It is perfectly legal to arrange one’s affairs so as to minimise tax liabilities (tax avoidance) but not to deliberately under declare income and overstate costs (tax evasion) – Dennis Healey was quoted to have said that the difference between the two “was the thickness of a prison wall”! We support you to legally keep as much of your hard earned money.
We provide advice on the type of business suitable for start-ups, maturity and growth, whether that should be sole trader status, partnership status, limited liability status, or co-operative status.
