Knowing your filing requirements and meeting them.
Well-presented returns reduce the risk of enquiry.
Even a one-person consultancy business faces myriad compliance requirements from HMRC and Companies House.
Most businesses know about the burden of many reporting requirements such as payroll, VAT and Corporation Tax etc., though they are generally less sure about whether, when and how to register for, report and pay taxes and fees. Additionally, there are HMRC and Companies House filings that consultants are not aware of, the ignorance of which can lead to penalties and enquiries.
The small company compliance environment is very familiar to us at Tayabali & White and we can support you as much as you need, allowing you more time to work in your chosen field.
As well as coping with the compliance environment, the prospect of having to face an HMRC is a real concern for consultants. We work with our business clients to help ensure their tax affairs can stand up to scrutiny, with particular consideration to IR35 issues. We also make sure returns are well-presented and unusual transactions clearly explained to reduce the chance of an HMRC enquiry.
We enjoy an excellent relationship with HMRC, which means that on the rare occasions when an enquiry is made we are able to deal with it quickly and successfully.
Tayabali & White is a long-standing firm of Cambridge accountants and tax advisers. Our ethos has always been to combine strong technical expertise with exceptional client service. This is borne out in our compliance work: our clients do not miss filing deadlines and very few face HMRC enquiries. This is enormously reassuring for our clients.
However, exceptional service is invaluable to clients when it comes to tax planning, for example Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax and Trusts, where practical and personal advice can only really be provided when we understand our clients’ situations intimately well. Our partners take the time to get to know new clients and our long-serving staff provide a familiar environment as we work with clients over the years.
Such an approach cannot be mass-marketed. We enjoy taking on clients who share our ethos and whom we can help with their personal and business tax and accountancy needs over many years.
Our clients do some really interesting things covering a wide range of industry sectors.
These include accommodation, agriculture & agribusiness, biotechnology, construction, consulting, education, engineering, financial services, IT, Journalism, manufacturing, medicine, music, pharmaceuticals, procurement, publishing, real estate, retail, telecommunications, transportation, web services.
