Margaret El Khalidi
Margaret specialises in helping the owners of small and medium-sized businesses to gain better understanding of their operations and their profitability.

As a Chartered Tax Adviser, Margaret is qualified to advise on corporate taxes, and she understands how all the various taxes can come together to impact on a business plan or broader strategy. She sees her main role as ensuring her clients operate as tax-efficiently as possible.

Margaret works closely with the Harwood Hutton teams producing monthly management accounts for her clients so she can feed back to the owners on key performance indicators and areas that may require attention, sometimes urgently. “They appreciate and value the proactive guidance,” she says.

Margaret is a licensed practitioner for ATOL reporting work, making her the prime contact for travel companies. She also works with solicitors handling Share Purchase Agreements for their clients, where her knowledge of tax helps ensure the tax warrantees and tax covenants are correctly drafted and offer adequate protection for the client.

As a child growing up in Poland, Margaret developed a talent for speed skating and she enjoys taking her two children to the local ice rink but confesses she has to fight the urge to pick up the speed and start carving her way through the crowd.

Margaret is a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, the leading professional body in the UK for advisers dealing with all aspects of taxation whose primary purpose is to promote education in taxation with a key aim of achieving a more efficient and less complex tax system for all.
Margaret specialises in the following services

Client Testimonials
  • I always get quick, clear and definitive responses from the Harwood Hutton tax team – commercial answers to commercial issues.

    Robin Berry – Morgan Management
  • Right from the outset Harwood Hutton gave us direction and great advice – and that advice has evolved over the years as we’ve grown. We’re both medium-sized companies providing a bespoke service – one furniture, one accountancy – and the relationship works.

    Andy McCarron, McCarron and Co
  • I’m deeply impressed with Harwood Hutton’s extensive knowledge of tax arrangements for residential and commercial property landlords.

    Qadeer Ahmed, MD, ABA Finance
  • They really took their time to understand what was important to us and our business and the expertise we required. Whoever we speak to at HH, we get the same fantastic response and technical input. It’s a real partnership.

    Edward Finch, group MD, MRIB insurance brokers
  • I have worked with the directors at Harwood Hutton on a number of mutual client matters over many years. The reassurance of their clear, commercial and focussed advice is one of the main reasons I regard this as one of my most valuable professional relationships.

    Frank Wessely, Partner, Quantuma LLP
  • Harwood Hutton never seem to rest on their laurels. They are always seeking out new avenues and ways to improve their offering. A very forward-thinking company with staff who are always well briefed and who approach each task with drive.

    Karl Austen, MD, Surefoot Communications
  • We have engaged Harwood Hutton in several areas of structuring, including VAT issues, decoupling an SPV from a group structure and HMRC clearance for a transaction. The team have exceeded all expectations by being proactive, measured and very thorough.

    Adam Fawsitt, Director, FHT Limited
  • We moved to Harwood Hutton as they delivered a succinct and professional proposal. If anything, we have been more impressed post-move. They are a fantastic company to work with. They do truly differentiate. They have the skills and capabilities of a mega firm but with a personal service.
