Tax Compliance and Tax Planning


We often hear the concern of some who feel that they are overpaying and there is often potential to mitigate some of that liability, whether it be in their business or personal lives.

The difficulty surrounds the complexity of the tax system and here at Stephenson Smart, help is at hand for our highly trained and experienced tax accountant specialists to unravel this complicated web of rules and laws.

There are a number of areas of taxation, both direct and indirect to consider, which include:

  • Income Tax,
  • Corporation Tax,
  • Capital Gains Tax,
  • Inheritance Tax,
  • Value Added Tax,
  • PAYE,
  • National Insurance,
  • Pension Automatic Enrolment.

There are many allowances, exemptions and reliefs available and our team can proactively assist with applying these to your personal circumstances.

Many of the taxes apply to one situation and we pride ourselves in offering a comprehensive service, which looks at your individual needs and caters for both your short and long term objectives.

How can Stephenson Smart help with taxation?

We seek to get to you know you well so we can plan ahead and foresee any potential taxation issues on the horizon and to structure your affairs in such a way that any issues are addressed in the most tax-efficient method.

Whether you are an individual struggling with self assessment or a large group of companies requiring advice on business structure and complex tax arrangements, our qualified team of tax accountants will be pleased to help.

We liaise with HM Revenue & Customs daily and are adept in dealing with tax investigations. If you do face an enquiry, again we are here to help and also offer a Tax Investigation Service.

As the HMRC advertisement correctly says, "tax doesn't have to be taxing" but it does help if you engage professional tax accountants to provide guidance and advice along the way.
