Working closely with you to ensure you pay the minimum tax...

As tax advisers based in Newcastle upon Tyne, our objective is to work closely with you to ensure you pay the minimum tax required by law.

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 due.

The increased 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 bottom line.

We are specialists in income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

Personal tax planning

Everyone who is subject to taxation needs professional advice and support if they are to optimise their tax position and ensure they meet the compliance requirements. Our specialist tax team can provide you with year-round advice on all aspects of personal taxation.

We can help prepare the Trust Tax return and ensure that the right amount of tax is paid on a timely basis. We can also provide the full range of accounting services required for trust management.


Ever changing regulations and the growing demands of HMRC mean VAT compliance can be a difficult administrative process. We can help to ensure that you comply with the regulations and that overpayments are not made. To help you manage this complex area, we provide an efficient, cost-effective VAT service, which includes:

  • assistance with VAT registration
  • advice on VAT planning and administration
  • use of the most appropriate scheme
  • VAT control and reconciliation
  • help with completing VAT returns
  • negotiating with HMRC in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals if necessary.

HMRC Investigations and Enquiries

Being the subject of a tax investigation or enquiry by HMRC can be a stressful and worrying experience. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with HMRC investigations, whether they are enquiries into an individual’s Tax Return, more detailed enquiries into a company’s affairs or employer-related investigations into PAYE and P11d compliance. If you're the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support.

Tax protection

With the increased risk of such investigations it may be worth considering taking out our annual insurance policy to protect you and your business from unexpected costs; an investigation will undoubtedly result in additional accountancy work being undertaken. The amount of work will depend upon the complexity of the case but the cost could be substantial.
