Corporate Tax
There is an increasing change in responsibility from the Inland Revenue to corporate tax-payers. The need to deal with routine compliance tax work in a proper and timely fashion is therefore essential. Hewitts deal with the tax submissions to the Inland Revenue with a view to agreeing liabilities and negotiating with the Inland Revenue on clients' behalf and can advise on compliance with all other tax matters arising throughout the year.
In addition, companies have onerous responsibilities in such matters as PAYE compliance, year end returns of benefits in kind. Hewitts can assist your company in all these areas
 
Personal Tax
Self Assessment is a another example of the shift in responsibility and workload to the individual tax-payer.
The completion of Self Assessment tax returns is the first step in a process, which will result in individuals standing the consequences of incorrect information or late returns.
Hewitts uses the most up to date computerised personal tax software which will in the future utilise the benefits of electronic lodgement of tax returns with the Inland Revenue.
Richard Winterman in our tax department, is available to deal with compliance matters and the partners and senior staff are always available.
 
Tax Planning
Tax is a fact of life, but the tragedy would be to pay more than is necessary.
Tax planning is essential to every individual and every business, to ensure that all tax mitigation steps have been taken, whatever your circumstances.
This is especially important where significant decisions are being taken, for example:
 
Buying and selling investments
Contributions to pension schemes
Obtaining finance
Planning for retirement
Acquiring property
Getting money out of your business
Buying or selling a business
Expanding your business
Remuneration packages for employees
 
With the complexity of the tax rules, it is important to take taxation advice to ensure that the optimum tax position has been considered before any major transactions occur. It is especially important to consider the interactions of the various taxes, for example capital gains tax and inheritance tax and to make certain that potential solutions do not conflict.
