Our clients are contractors just like you who want a tax efficient but prudent way of working in the UK. This is what we offer.
We are prudent by not involving ourselves in offshore schemes which are designed so the client pays no tax at all - this results in a client paying no tax for a year or two before HMRC closes the loophole and investigates retrospectively anyone who was a member of such a scheme. Each client then has to pay the tax they should have paid plus a penalty for tax evasion.
Our clients believe like us that these "here today, gone tomorrow" schemes are not worth the sleepless nights waiting for a brown HMRC investigation envelope to arrive at your door.
We therefore only provide advice that is inline with current tax legislation and we look at all possible legal tax reliefs that can be used to minimise your tax liability - this is good tax planning.
Why use a specialist contractor accountant instead of my local accountant on the high street?
Simple, contracting is a specialist area of tax and accountancy, your local accountant may not specialise in this and although they believe they can advise you they may not be fully up-to-date with the relevant tax legislation that is specific to freelance contractors.
If you needed an operation would you want your GP to do it or a surgeon?
