You may approach us with a business problem, when in fact it’s an underlying tax issue that’s keeping you awake at night.
Are you a Director or Shareholder of a company or a sole trader unsure of your options and obligations? We can provide advice on incorporation, restructuring or purchase/sale of a business. We also have an experienced compliance department here to assist with accounts, payroll, VAT and tax returns.
Unlike many other advisers, we will take a holistic look at your financial affairs and create clever strategies geared towards your top priorities. Our service is bespoke. We understand that what matters to you is not necessarily what’s important to the next person which is why our work is so successful.
Are you an entrepreneur wanting to grow a business for sale or investment?
We will advise you on how to structure your business and mitigate the tax, ensuring you get the most out of it and achieve the outcome you’re looking for.
Do you have a mixed portfolio made up of companies, properties and other assets? Are they spread across different jurisdictions?
We can help you restructure your assets and investments to create a cohesive and cost-effective strategy for maximising your wealth. We have yet to come across a challenge we can’t overcome – so feel free to challenge us! Whether you need to separate assets, transfer parts of the business, dispose of certain elements, extract funds more cost-effectively, license IP or find fresh employee solutions, we can help.
Is it time to introduce a new group structure?
You may be looking to move your business offshore, relocate your HQ, trade in new areas or make different investments. Let us advise you on the best way forward.
Are you facing a tax investigation or enquiry?
We are here to help. We keep enquiries narrow and resolve them quickly. We have years of experience in dealing with complex investigations in the UK and internationally. We use our specialist knowledge and technical arguments to achieve the results our clients are looking for.
Are your employee benefits schemes working to your advantage?
Employment can be a minefield and it’s easy to get bogged down in red tape and bureaucracy. Whether you are looking for a radical overhaul of your employee benefits and remuneration strategies or simply want a PAYE health check, our team will advise you on the most effective and tax-efficient structures. This is not an off-the-shelf service. Instead, we offer expert advice and practical support born out of many years’ experience and a focus on your personal priorities as well as the needs of the business as a whole.
In our last employment-status article we discussed the indicators of employment vs self-employment and the tax and NIC implications thereon. Given the recent ruling in the Uber case it seems that courts are leaning further towards an employee/employer relationship rather than that of an independent contractor.
