Are you paying too much tax?

No-one likes paying more tax than they have to. And for businesses, tax is a cost which, like any other cost, should be minimised wherever possible. At the most basic level there are several simple planning actions you can take to start saving tax, yet most business owners aren’t aware of them. Entrust your tax affairs to Burgis & Bullock and you’ll only pay the absolute minimum, but still comply with all the necessary requirements to keep you on the right side of HMRC.

Our personal and corporate tax services include:

Business tax planning

Whether you are starting in business for the first time, running an established business or planning a sale or retirement, there are always many tax issues for you to consider.

Employee benefits

If you don’t understand all the tax implications of employee benefits, you’ll need help in reducing the burden of the compliance tasks and in planning tax-efficient remuneration packages for your workers.

Trust and estate planning

Careful advance planning will help you reduce the overall tax burden.

Inheritance Tax planning

A considerate review of your total wealth and structuring including tax efficient wills to ensure the maximum amount possible is passed to the next generation.

Capital Gains planning

Identifying tax saving opportunities, maximising reliefs and exemptions for anyone intending to sell a capital asset (property, business shares etc.)

Research & Development Tax Relief

A detailed analysis of your business expenditure makes sure you benefit from the 225% deductions available on R&D claims.

Capital Allowances

A review of your business property identifies any ‘hidden’ tax claims, the possibilities of claiming enhanced allowances and the potential to generate a tax rebate and minimise your future liabilities.

HM Revenue & Customs Investigations

If you are unfortunate enough to be the subject of a tax investigation by HM Revenue & Customs, it can be a stressful and worrying experience. Revenue staff can now review cases on a ‘sample basis’; consequently, tax investigations have become more frequent. If you are about to be investigated, you’ll benefit from professional help and support. For a small annual premium you’ll receive cover for all professional fees in the event of an enquiry.
