Personal Tax (including sole traders and partnerships)

Reducing Taxes on Your Personal Wealth

Whether you are buying or selling assets or wanting to leave as much as you can to your beneficiaries, there are legal, approved opportunities to reduce tax.

Discussing your plans with us before you make significant changes to your affairs will enable us to ensure that you develop a tax efficient strategy and take advantage of all of the tax reliefs available to you.

We are specialists in income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

Self Assessment

We have the expertise and software to take the headache out of the form filling and compliance aspect of Self Assessment. Our tax advisers can provide you with practical advice on personal tax positions and the planning opportunities available to you. We can complete tax returns, calculate any tax liability and advise you on exactly when to make payments and how much to pay.

Personal tax planning

Today, more and more emphasis is being put on taxpayers' individual responsibilities and everyone who is subject to taxation needs professional advice and support if they are to optimise their tax position and ensure they meet the compliance requirements. Our specialist tax team can provide you with year-round advice on all aspects of personal taxation.

Estate planning

Few of us like to think about dying, however the relevant legislation requires us to plan well in advance. This means making the necessary provisions now. There are many tax opportunities available and the earlier arrangements are made, the greater the chance of taking full advantage of our complicated tax system.

It is important when planning to transfer an estate that adequate provision is made and getting the right balance requires considerable skill and foresight - along with a detailed knowledge of the current tax regime. We provide a discreet comprehensive estate planning service that includes:

  • help with planning and reviewing a will
  • making full use of exemptions and lower tax rates on lifetime transfers
  • optimising lifetime transfers between family members
  • transferring agricultural or business property
  • transferring assets into trust
  • arranging adequate life assurance to cover potential inheritance tax liabilities.

We also have expertise in dealing with trusts; a relatively easy and very tax efficient way to set aside assets for future beneficiaries outside the inheritance tax net. We can advise on the most suitable type of trust to fulfil your wishes, assist in setting up the trust and provide the full range of accounting services required for trust management.
