Self-Assessment is a way for the HMRC to collect Income Tax from people and businesses with ‘other’ sources of income outside of Salaries, Pensions etc.
Many individuals will need to submit a self-assessment tax return for e.g. the Self-Employed, if you are a Company Director or People with untaxed income greater than £2,500 in a tax year.
We can prepare and submit your Self-Assessment return to HMRC making use of all allowable deductions you are eligible for. We can also prepare the ‘simpler accounts’ you may need as a Self-Employed individual completing the return and ensure vital deadlines are met and penalties avoided.
Certain Businesses in the UK such as Limited Companies, must pay Corporation Tax on their profits.
You must register for Corporation Tax when you start doing business, keep appropriate accounting records and prepare and submit a CT tax return to the HMRC by strict deadlines. Failure to do so can result in penalties by the HMRC.
We can prepare and submit your CT return to the HMRC making use of all available reliefs and allowances to reduce your CT liability as far as possible. We can also advise you on what needs to be done when becoming a private limited company and take charge of all your accounting needs at this point to take the stress away and allow you to focus on what matters – your business.
