TAXATION

Value Added Tax

VAT is quite often more complex than any other tax regime, for example if you are property developers or trade with EU. The VAT notices specific to certain industries or transactions are very detailed and you would need a strong advice and planning before the transaction or your businesses may inadvertently overpay or underpay VAT.

How we help our clients.

We have incorporated a number of new businesses under different VAT schemes such as registering them under Flat rate scheme. Additionally, we have designed the whole VAT process and effective system for the clients to monitor input and output VAT and the overall impact on cash-flow. We will offer you practical advice on your turnover, the VAT threshold for small businesses and whether you should voluntarily register for VAT before reach the threshold. There will be some advantages and disadvantages for your business to register voluntary and we’ll be happy to discuss all the options with you so you can make and better decision.

Additional Services We Offer:


• HMRC VAT inspections and negotiations with HMRC if any disputes
• Advice on VAT on commercial property acquisition, development and ongoing.
• Advice on VAT on acquiring a VAT registered business.
• Advice on VAT on cross-border transactions.
• VAT registrations, schemes and VAT cancellations.

PAYE

There are more changes in PAYE tax regime than any other taxes we can think of. We regularly update ourselves with all those changes and pass on the useful information to the clients to make sure they comply and take advantage where applicable.
This will not only help them to save but will help them in making certain decisions such as recruiting new staff members.

How we can help:

Personal Tax

Each April your attention is drawn in the foreseeable direction of the need to submit a personal tax return. During the year you would have seen a change in tax law that will have a direct impact on your immediate or future tax liabilities, or you will have incomes from new sources, for example your business has grown and you withdrew perhaps share holder dividends.

How we can help:

Things have changed a lot since the end of the recession and you would need a strong advice to protect yourself from the taxes that could be saved if planned and managed proactively, for example if you buy to let or mortgage interest element in calculating your net rental income. We provide extensive tax planning proactively for the coming years and reactively to the changes in the tax regime.

In working out your corporation tax we look into the wider areas of capital and investment allowances, unutilised losses, other incomes and Research and development tax credits etc. Contact us today for free one hour consultancy.

CGT

If when you sell or give away an asset it has increased in value, you may be taxable on the gain. CGT is often quite complex with so many exemptions and reliefs available, and the recent good and bad news about CGT has made it more difficult to understand and protect yourself. With careful capital gains tax advice, it is often possible for individuals and/or trusts to reduce, totally avoid and/or delay payment of capital gains tax.
Our specialist tax team deals with all aspects of capital gains tax, including:

• Shares and investments
• Property
• Non-Resident gain since 1 April 2015
• Estate gains
• Trust gains
• Revenue enquiries and investigations

Property Advice

It is more challenging than ever to buy property or move up through a property ladder, for example if you need a bigger house or buy to let investment. The recent changes in stamp duty land tax (SDLT), CGT and calculation of net rental income means you would need to plan a lot over the next few years.

How we can help

We are well-connected and have forged relation with solicitors, bankers and other financial institutions to make your every move as tax efficient as possible.. Why not contact us for free one hour initial consultancy.

Residency

We have quite a lot non-domiciled UK tax residents and non-residents clients including Pilots, non-dom directors of dual nationalities living only certain days in UK and other high net worth individuals having relevant foreign incomes. Historically, residence in the UK was determined by being in the UK in excess of 182 days in any tax year. However, the Statutory Residence Test (SRT) came into effect from 6 April 2013. The new statutory rules consist of the three separate tests which are intended to provide greater certainty as to a taxpayer’s residency status.

How we can help

More ever from 5 April 2015 non-resident selling their UK properties may have to pay CGT on the gains..... There are so many things to look into such as relevant incomes, Long Term Residency and Remittance Basis Charge, remittance Vs arising basis, and the double taxation agreements between UK and your countries where you have paid the tax. The rules for non-dom will further change from 6 April 2017 and therefore you would always need an accountant like us having so much experience to offer. Similarly if you are non-resident Landlord (NRL) and receive rental incomes from UK properties, you will need to pay tax at source, or alternatively why not nominate us to become your authorised agent at a very small annual commitment and we will make sure you pay the tax efficiently. If you are individual who is non-domicile but have UK ties and live certain in UK, you would still need to submit the tax return, contact us today and we will work hard to take into account everything to make sure we submit your tax return accurately.

R&D Tax Relief

Are we eligible for R&D tax credits is the question we are asked quite often, and the answer is often yes. Many are unaware of the potential benefits, and this is where BSO FINTAX can provide R&D tax help. If your company is spending or has spent by innovating, improving or developing a process, product or service, then it may result cash payment from HMRC (if you are loss making company) or reducing corporation tax bill. From 1 April 2015, the enhanced deduction was increased further to 230% of the qualifying R&D expenditure incurred.

How we can help

Our experience suggest that it’s rare to find a business where all of the R&D activity is transparent, and correlate to job roles and functions specific to R&D. We tend to find it’s more typical that R&D functions will be spread across numerous aspects of the organisation, with some individuals playing a far more active role. We often start by working closely with clients to identify the specific job roles within a business, and attributing a percentage of their time as qualifying R&D expenditure. If you want to find out whether your expenditure qualify for R&D, please contact us.
