Tax legislation is constantly changing and becoming ever more complex. This means there are more potential pitfalls and a greater likelihood of investigation and even prosecution if your tax returns contain errors.

Happily, we have a large team of specialist tax advisers to put at your disposal, with extensive experience across all the major sectors: Corporation Tax, personal tax, VAT, SDLT, cross-border tax.

They will make sure your returns to HMRC are compliant, accurate and on time, and will give you appropriate advice on how to manage your liabilities most effectively. They will help you deal with HMRC investigations and IR 35 enquiries.

We also offer advice on how to structure your tax affairs in the most tax-efficient manner, so you can take full advantage of any legitimate and beneficial tax planning opportunities.

We also have extensive experience in cross-border taxation. We work closely with tax advisors in other jurisdictions to offer you a comprehensive range of international tax compliance and advisory services.
