Corporation tax services
Under Corporation Tax Self-Assessment (CTSA), the legal responsibility for correctly calculating the corporation tax liability falls on business owners. We understand the issues facing owner-managed businesses and can prepare tax returns in a timely and efficient manner. We will also calculate your company's tax liability and assist with the calculation of any quarterly instalment payments.
The increasing reporting obligations, investigation policies on the part of the tax authorities and harsher penalties for non-compliance mean that your time and resources can be taken up with tax administration. We will help to minimise corporate tax exposure and relieve the administrative burden of compliance with current tax legislation. Effective corporate tax planning can also result in significant improvements in your profitability.

Being the subject of a tax investigation by the HMRC can be a stressful and worrying experience. With the onset of personal and corporate Self-Assessment, HMRC staff can now review cases on a "sample basis"; consequently tax investigations have become more frequent. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with HMRC investigations, whether they are enquiries into an individual's tax return under the Self-Assessment regime, more detailed enquiries or employer related investigations into PAYE and P11D compliance. If you are about to be the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support.
