HIGH-CALIBRE TAX ADVICE
When it comes to tax advice, our strongly held view is that no-one should pay a penny more than their legal obligation. As someone once put it: “You must pay your taxes – but there’s no law to say you have to leave a tip.”
Our tax experts are ready to help you make the most of the wealth you and your family have built, and to assist entrepreneurs and organisations in getting the maximum return from their hard work.
We look to reduce tax bills in a way that is lawful, sustainable and clear. Our strategies will always take account of the wider personal or corporate picture – however simple or complex – and will be tailored to your specific needs.
Our personal tax advice covers all the key areas, including income tax, inheritance tax, personal service companies and IR35 arrangements plus expat taxes and all taxes related to property.
On the corporate side, we deal with direct taxes and indirect taxes such as corporation tax, VAT and customs and excise duty.
As you might expect, our tax team has extensive experience of dealing with HMRC and we have a strong and proud track record of defending the best interests of our clients.
