Personal & Corporate Tax Returns

Many taxpayers struggle to understand the complex tax return rules under self assessment, completing returns incorrectly and as such may end up paying more tax than they need. With the advent of HMRC's new 'Making Tax Digital' strategy on the horizon, the completion and submission of returns is set to become even more complicated.


Under 'Making Tax Digital' every business owner or landlord, large or small, VAT registered or not, will be required to submit quarterly returns online.

If any are late by more than one month, then penalty points will be levied.
What we can do for you.....


We can save you a lot of time, worry and money.  We complete tax returns for all types of business:

  • Sole traders

  • Individuals including landlords

  • Limited Companies including companies Limited by Guarantee and Management Companies.

  • Many accountants do not offer a service for these specialist companies whereas we have a number of such clients.




We do all the necessary computations, complete and submit return and accounts to both HMRC and Companies House. At the same time we offer tax planning advice so that you can be confident your tax bill is as small as (legally) possible.


We act as your agent, dealing directly with HMRC on your behalf. Should you be selected for enquiry by HMRC, we will act as your representative at any meetings you may be asked to attend.


However, we would just mention that we have never had an enquiry into any accounts or returns prepared by this firm in all the 30+ years that we have been in business.
