Tax Planning & Compliance

We are a professional small business accountant that is dedicated to offering clarity, advice and assistance with tax compliance. If you need help with tax planning, filing, payments or returns, we are here to help with our wealth of essential tax compliance Ely services for small to medium-sized businesses.

Why Tax Compliance Is Important?

Working alongside small and medium-sized businesses since the 1990s has taught us that it’s virtually impossible to manage and expand a successful business without being fully tax compliant. Our tax services cover all types of tax returns for companies, partnerships, individuals, trusts and pension schemes, and we work across a range of business sectors.

Tax is not just getting more complicated every year, changes to rules and regulations are also becoming more frequent – and as keeping up with tax forms is a legal requirement, failing to comply or late filing can lead to harsh penalties for your business.

This means it’s more important than ever to keep on top of your accounting and tax paperwork. As making tax digital ProAdvisors we are experts in modern accounting and can make tax compliance much easier to manage. Find out more about our essential tax compliance Ely services below to see how we could help you.

Essential Tax Compliance Services

Personal Tax Returns

Everyone working in the UK is paid under PAYE or through a tax return – we can help take care of all your personal tax returns.

Self Employed and Partnerships

If you are self employed and need help with your personal tax returns, we offer a fully integrated service with quoted fees agreed in advance.

Salaried on PAYE

We offer a fixed price personal tax return service including a review of your tax affairs. HMRC has admitted to many thousands of PAYE code mistakes and people are now receiving tax bills from years ago of which they were not aware. If you have received an unexpected tax bill, you can contact us to find out what you should do next.

Corporation Tax Returns

When it comes to corporation tax returns, there are many essential requirements that must be followed by the book. From ensuring tax returns are submitted within 12 months of the accounting year end, to ensuring all your tax is paid and filed electronically using Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL), we can keep your tax compliance on the straight and narrow and deliver on time every time. Whatever your tax requirements, we can advise you – just give us a call.

Tax Enquiries and Investigations

Should HMRC contact you about a tax enquiry or investigation, we can efficiently deal with and pre-empt any issues to save you time and hassle. The self assessment system means that HMRC can easily focus on tax returns and accounts which do not “fit” the industry sector or that show variations from past accounts. There are many ways in which HMRC identify companies and individuals for tax enquiry, and while most only question one aspect of the accounts, this can lead to more questions. We have considerable experience handling tax enquiries and work with some of the UK’s leading tax advisers and counsel to ensure we’re offering the very best advice and service.

Corporate Tax Planning

Efficient and clever corporate tax planning could save you money by reducing your tax liability. Businesses often set up second or third companies without considering the corporation tax associated company rules, or plan to reduce corporation tax without considering the personal tax implications. Many of our clients are now operating with branches or product sourcing overseas and there are savings to be made by establishing the right structure from the outset. From shareholder inheritance tax planning, to organising group structures operating in the UK and overseas, if you would like a free discussion about how we can help you with corporate tax planning, contact us today.

Family Tax Planning, Family Companies and Trusts

If you run a family company, we can help you find ways of saving significant amounts of tax by releasing capital from the business, substantially reducing the higher rate tax payable on salaries (under PAYE) and dividends. Also, if you have shareholders simply wishing to retire and sell their shares, or even complex trust arrangements protecting family members, we can assist you in resolving problems and planning to reduce the tax burden. Contact us today for your free, confidential discussion.
