It is rightly said that nothing is certain in life but death and taxes. Sorry, but it’s true. Perhaps the greatest fear about tax is that the sheer complexity of it all might unwittingly create excessive liability: and no one wants to pay more than is necessary, least of all by default.
If the process is regarded as tedious then this danger is compounded. There is also danger in regarding it too simplistically; and a plethora of matters – ranging from pension arrangements to savings, capital gains and inherited wealth – all add complexity.
You want prompt, efficient and, above all, accurate tax assessment and we provide just that. But we can go further: if you need tax planning advice, say your affairs involve trusts, inheritance or more, we can deal with all that too - and with any other professionals, such as banks or insurance companies, that may be involved.
Inheritance tax mitigation
One more thing we can help you with is inheritance tax (IHT). This is no place to go into detail, but everything from changing legislation (e.g. trust law changed dramatically in 2006 and the implications continue) to labyrinthine regulations make this a difficult area. We can help you get it right: whether with regard to annual exemptions, property, gifts or the overall structure of a company we can advise and help sort matters to protect your family’s future.
In all matters of tax your present arrangements will be properly dealt with and your future circumstances properly planned.
