Taxation Experts

Taxation

Our clients naturally expect to pay the correct amount of tax. That's why we are one of Cheshire's leading tax experts. We have achieved this position by ensuring we ‘join the dots’ on your entire affairs and view the provision of expert tax advice to you and your business - and your family - as one entity for which we need to achieve the best overall rate of tax.

The majority of taxation disciplines contain significant overlap. By delivering our taxation advice through a partner-led team of qualified tax advisors and chartered accountants, we ensure all available options are considered - and that they work together to your best tax advantage.

From a compliance perspective it is becoming more and more difficult for business owners to hold constructive dialogue with HMRC hence it falls to us to communicate on your behalf - an area we are extremely competent in and one which we are constantly monitoring as UK tax legislation changes. More recently those tax changes tend to be issued with little or no notice hence it is essential that you capitalise on the relevant tax law while it is available.  An excellent example of this is R&D Tax Credits, more of which can be found on this subject under our research and development blogs.

In addition, the introduction of Making Tax Digital is a key part of the government's plan to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their tax affairs - meaning the end of annual tax returns for millions. Every person and business now has access to their own personalised digital tax account and these are being regularly expanded and improved - but if you're uncertain about your next steps, let one of our expert tax specialists help you.

And if you are subject to a HMRC tax investigation or VAT inspection, it is even more important that you seek the correct professional accountancy support. Please don't ignore it.

A tax investigation is broken down into 3 categories: (i) aspect, (ii) full, and (iii) random. Aspect enquiries is where one or more areas of your tax information is reassesed; with full enquiries, as the name suggests, inspecting the whole of your tax and or self-assessment return. Random enquiries particularly target SME's and give HMRC the power to evaluate tax returns across any area of your business which is deemed high risk.  But don't panic, we're here to help you if you have a tax investigation or tax inspection.  You can contact us either via the Contact page on our website, or email Paul.Edwards@affordbond.com at our Nantwich office, or Chris.Monks@affordbond.com at our Wilmslow office.  We are expert tax and VAT advisors with offices in Cheshire including Nantwich, Wilmslow and Chester.
