Personal Tax & Compliance - Tayabali & White

Personal Tax & Compliance

As specialist tax advisors we look after all aspects of personal tax. Our partners get to know clients personally in order to provide practical and tailored advice.

Returns

Trusts are a useful planning tool but a compliance minefield.

Getting it right

Tax returns are essentially a question of getting the computation right. We ask the right questions, get the right information and understand how to treat things correctly and fairly, while at the same time advise you on how to retain more of your annual earnings and gains. To do this well, we need to get to know you, and we therefore take time to build personal relationships and understand our clients’ needs.

Personal tax is becoming ever more complicated but as a member firm of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, we are always up to date with changes to legislation and best practice, which means that we are able to provide you with the best and most accurate advice at all times.

Complexities

The seven volumes of tax law are indicative of the range of complexities that clients may encounter. Typically we find ourselves dealing with tax reliefs, capital gains and pension issues as well as international aspects such as residence and domicile, foreign incomes, capital gains and pension issues.

For our higher net worth clients, we also commonly deal with tax-relieving investments, pension contributions and withdrawals, trust and estate income, asset disposals and property issues.

Dealing with HMRC

HMRC are under more scrutiny than ever to maximise tax revenues and their methods are becoming increasingly aggressive. Whilst our clients don’t want to pay more tax than they should, they rely on us to look after them and ensure that HMRC don't have cause to enquire into their affairs.

Knowing the rules is critical to ensuring that returns contain no mistakes; and long experience ensures that our clients’ tax affairs are presented properly and with adequate explanations.

Over the years our firm has thus built a very good reputation with the HMRC for ethical compliance; and this in turn means that our clients are less likely to be investigated.

Trust & Estate Returns

Commonly, once assets go into trust they fall out of your estate completely after seven years, yet you can still retain control over the asset. Trusts are therefore often used to safeguard assets for future beneficiaries and to reduce inheritance tax for settlors.

Trustees must submit returns to HMRC each year, but there are special rules for the taxation of trust income and assets. In addition, there can be other periodic charges to be calculated and accounted for.

Many accountants do not work with trusts because of the complexities involved. However, at Tayabali & White we have the specialised knowledge and experience to deal with trust issues, and are often appointed by executors to advise on estate tax.

Why us?

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.
