Personal tax

Self-assessment tax returns and advice for individuals

High-earners, company directors and anyone with untaxed income must complete an income tax self-assessment return each year. The deadline for online submissions is 31 January, covering the previous tax year.

Although it is called self-assessment, many of our clients come to us because they just want this job done without having to waste hours of their life navigating the HMRC website. We process countless personal tax returns each year and are able to do so quickly and efficiently, ensuring our clients meet the deadline and avoid penalties for late filing.

We also use this as an opportunity to identify tax reliefs and allowances you could be claiming to keep your tax liability at a reasonable level. That also ties into our longer-term tax planning advice designed to reduce the impact of capital gains tax, inheritance tax and other potential traps. From how you take payment from your business (salary, dividends, pensions) to the way you distribute ownership of assets with your partner, there are plenty of ways to take control.
