The CHW team’s advice is based upon a thorough understanding of your business and your plans for the future – we deal with all areas of taxation, and can help you with:
Tax compliance – making sure you comply with tax legislation to pay the right amount of tax. With penalties rising, and HMRC always on the lookout, we’ll make sure your tax affairs are legal and accurate, and ultimately, stand up to scrutiny from HMRC.
Tax planning – the way your business, and personal affairs are structured can substantially affect the amount of tax you pay. Our team of tax advisors work to get to know your business and will provide advice on how to structure your affairs in the most tax-efficient manner.
Corporation tax – we deal with a range of businesses, from start-ups with one limited company to groups of companies with complex structures, working on maximising profit extraction and tax mitigation, and planning for the day when you might consider selling your business.
Personal tax – we work with clients to complete their annual tax return, maximising any allowances or reliefs available to them.
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) – when you sell an asset of substantial value, you might need to pay Capital Gains Tax. We can work out how much you owe, and recommend options that might assist in reducing your liability.
Inheritance Tax (IHT) – with effective planning beforehand, the amount of Inheritance Tax falling due can be significantly reduced. With property prices rising, and IHT allowances failing to keep up, more and more people are falling into the band of paying IHT. Protect your estate with effective planning.
Tax investigations – With tax investigations on the rise, any enquiries that HMRC raise should be taken seriously. HMRC are continuing to invest in specific departments targeting businesses and individuals, often at random. Our team can assist during a HMRC tax investigation, and furthermore, we offer Tax Investigation Service to cover the costs of our professional fees in dealing with an investigation.
The way you structure your business and personal affairs can really impact on the amount of tax you pay. Our team of specialist advisors will take your circumstances into account and provide you with the best advice.
