The majority of people do not have to complete a tax return ie. those receiving employment income and some bank interest. However, if your financial affairs are slightly more complicated you may be required to complete and submit a tax return to HM Revenue and Customs, for example, if you are a company director, have self employment income or other sources of untaxed income.
We appreciate that filling in a tax return can be confusing, stressful and frustrating and we are happy to take all of these stresses away. We will complete the form on your behalf and guide you through self assessment ensuring that you are compliant with the submission of your tax return and other relevant forms. We will make sure you are fully aware of forthcoming deadlines to ensure you are not hit by any unwanted penalties.

We can assist you in adopting plans to maintain your family’s wealth and keep IHT to the absolute minimum.
