Tax preparation services

As professional tax accountants, Kirkwood Wilson offers a range of specialised tax preparation services to help you to comply with your legal obligations. Our experienced and knowledgeable tax accountants work closely with you to piece together the jigsaw of personal income tax, corporation tax, VAT, capital gains tax and inheritance tax to help you concentrate on the bigger picture at hand.

How a tax accountant can help

The crucial factor for most of our clients is determining what their overall tax liability is. This involves the preparation of company tax returns and individual tax returns. These are carried out promptly so that you can make the most of our tax planning services. Our team will routinely look to minimise your overall tax liabilities.

All active UK limited companies must pay tax on their taxable profits, which is done by submitting a Corporation Tax return to HMRC. Our experienced advisers have in-depth technical knowledge, which allows us to identify opportunities to reduce your tax liability.

Personal tax returns can be arduous and time-consuming. However, to our tax team it is all in a day’s work for us to take this stress away from you. There are several reasons why you should complete a Self Assessment tax return. Being self-employed or a company director are just two of them.

VAT and digital accounting

VAT is one of the most important areas to get right in the whole tax arena. As specialist tax accountants, we use state-of-the-art technology, such as receipt capturing and automatic bank feeds, to make accounting for VAT as easy as possible. Our goal is to harness technology that gives you more time to concentrate on running your business.

We have a great deal of expertise in all of the varying VAT schemes and complete many VAT returns to agreed deadlines for our clients. The Making Tax Digital scheme starts with VAT registered businesses and by using digital software we can keep you up to date with the best VAT advice.

Tax planning

How you structure your personal and business tax affairs can significantly affect how much tax you must legally pay over your lifetime. We will help you to develop an individual tax plan that ensures maximum tax efficiency whilst you are working, retired and even when you die.

We have extensive experience in Capital Gains and Inheritance Tax planning, and our team are experts in dealing with the sensitivity surrounding these issues. If applicable to your business, we can also help you to make Research and Development Claims (R&D) by advising on the correct processes and supporting with paperwork.
