Our tax accountants can help you with all areas of business tax, including:

  • Deciding on a tax-efficient structure
  • Making the most of allowances and reliefs
  • Reducing tax on disposals
  • Maximising tax relief on acquisitions
  • Liaising with the authorities on your behalf
  • Assisting with compliance requirements, including corporation tax self-assessment

Capital gains tax

Capital gains tax (CGT) planning is essential if you are planning to make a disposal of a capital asset, such as a share of a business or a company, stocks and shares or a property.
