Tax affects everyone in some way during the course of their life and business affairs. Unfortunately, it is not usually given sufficient consideration before it creates a problem.
The UK tax system is extremely complex, and the legal framework that sits around it can be very technical. As new Finance Acts are introduced every year (following the annual budget), new tax laws are created, existing ones are amended and some can even be scrapped altogether. Add to this the influences of case law on that legal system and you can see why taxation, and our understanding of it, is constantly changing.
Why using HCB Solicitors for your taxation needs is the right thing to do:
- Access to tax qualified staff in this highly specialised area of legal practice. This in house expertise really helps us to distinguish ourselves from other legal practices.
- We specialise in responsible tax planning and will find the best solution for you given what you have told us is important to you. By this we mean not just what saves the most tax, but saves tax and meets your needs.
- We ensure that you pay only as much tax as you need to by taking full advantage of the various reliefs and exemptions available to you.
- We will ensure you are not participating in any aggressive tax avoidance that will cause you problems and cost you money later on, should the legal framework be altered.
The most common issue with any tax planning is that as tax advisers we are only consulted once a problem arises, or a deal has gone ahead. If you get us involved at the very beginning of your project we can become your true partners. In taking this approach you can shape your affairs by tapping into the resources we can provide.
