Professional Services

We know we provide the right service and support – to make a difference to your business performance.

Being experts in our field we make it our business to have a thorough understanding of your sector.

Minimising your tax liability through the use of tax-efficient investment and pension contributions, risk management benefits of limited liability status are all attractive propositions where we advise. We have first-hand experience having become an LLP in June 2011.

The legal profession faces fundamental commercial issues. Many practices have either
stopped trading or chosen strategic mergers and acquisitions to survive. Professional firms are also faced with the challenge of how to retain a highly qualified workforce with high salary expectations; how to fulfil compliance obligations (RTI, pension-auto enrolment, changes in child benefit); and how to ensure that your business structure is best-suited to your needs.

Other areas for discussion are tax rates and tax-efficient payment for staff, including flexible benefits, NIC planning and salary sacrifice.

Our highly experienced team helps guide your business and advises in all areas of your practice.

We can help with:

  • Audit
  • Preparation of tax computations and returns
  • Reporting on the efficiency and profitability of business structures
  • Structuring a partnership business
  • Structuring tax-efficient borrowings
  • Tax planning
  • Maximising Capital Allowance claims(including CA claims on commercial property)

  • Cash flow management
  • Budgets and cash flow forecasts
  • Tax investigations advice
  • Systems improvement
  • Assistance with mergers and acquisitions (including relevant tax considerations such as Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax)
  • Personal finance
  • Wealth management

We advise on how to maximise efficiency, productivity and effectiveness and help lessen your administrative burden, to allow better control. Improvements around business planning and increasing your client base all help to free up your time to grow your business.
