Strategic Tax Planning


People who run their own business need a strategic plan that helps them to mitigate the effects of tax. Harwood Hutton can develop a bespoke solution that complements the needs and ambitions of your particular business and your personal and family aspirations. With good advice and guidance, you and your business should emerge stronger and better off financially.

Business owners need to look critically at all aspects of the way they operate. Ask yourself:

  • Are you making use of all the available tax breaks including the temporary increases in capital allowances?
  • Can your business attract tax-efficient investment?
  • Are you utilising all available tax shelters to manage downwards the corporation tax bill and stay outside quarterly payments?
  • What are the tax-efficient ways in which staff can be paid to lower what is often the main expense in a business, the wages bill?
  • Would a reorganisation of your structure enhance your position by allowing you to reduce legitimately your effective tax rate when extracting profits?
  • How do you ensure you are best placed to maximise entrepreneurs' relief at 10% on a disposal?

Most people in business know just two things about corporate tax in the UK - it's too hard and it's too high. If you’d like to know how Harwood Hutton in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire can help you then please contact one of our specialist advisors.
