Since 1997, the amount of tax legislation has more than doubled. Far from clarifying things, government has created ever more complications. Our tax experts work to reduce your compliance burden whilst minimising the financial impact of tax on you and your business.

Tax Advisory

There are many ways to minimise business tax quite legitimately, however we always take a holistic rather than piecemeal approach to tax advice. Our tax experts work closely with you to understand your business and personal goals.

Whether you are seeking the best remuneration route or tax efficient company cars and benefits, or looking to buy property or raise finance for growth, or wish to claim Research & Development credits or Capital Allowances, we will always assess the wider tax, VAT and indirect tax implications when advising you. Our expertise encompasses

  • Taxation of business property and assets such as Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED), Business asset roll over relief, Capital allowances
  • Employee benefits such as Employee Management Incentives (EMI), employee share schemes, the taxation of trivial benefits and incentives for electric cars
  • Innovation incentives such as Patent Box and Research and Development tax relief
  • Tax efficient investments such as Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) for start ups

We offer a free initial consultation, where we can discuss what you would like to achieve and the options available. Get in touch with any of our experts below or call us on +44(0)330 024 3200 and we can arrange a suitable time with you. We are happy to meet either in person (Covid restrictions allowing) at a location convenient to you or over the phone or Zoom.
