Why is tax planning important?

Tax planning is as important as planning anything − keeping everything organised and ensuring you're not caught out with a tax liability, all without worrying about over/underpayments, missed deadlines or errors. Dealing with significant amounts of money calls for a structured plan, as the penalties for submitting inaccurate tax returns can lead to fines.

Tax planning helps ensure that you maximise the amount of tax your pay. Our team of tax experts cover Hertfordshire, North London, Barnet and Enfield and can help small businesses, sole traders and individuals effectively maximise tax relief, claim back tax owed to them, and minimise the amount of tax you need to pay to HMRC.

Whether it's personal tax planning or small business tax such as VAT or Corporation Tax, it's essential to keep on top of things to avoid mistakes and keep in line with regulations.

What is business tax in the UK?

Everyone has to pay taxes. Business taxes in the UK are what businesses have to pay, including various taxes depending on the nature of the business.

Small businesses have to pay certain taxes depending on their size, turnover and the activities/products they carry out. Missing any crucial deadlines for paying these taxes can result in hefty fines from HMRC. Plus, HMRC adds interest on overdue payments, so costs can quickly mount up.

Having a plan to cover all the different payments is something we can help with. We can minimise the tax you must pay to HMRC and help you achieve your financial goals. Benefits of tax planning include:

  • Reduction in tax rates and tax bills
  • Use of tax relief legislation
  • Control over payments
  • Organised and controlled payment schedules

As tax regulations are constantly changing, it's helpful to have us on your side to maintain a thorough plan and keep up-to-date with any changes.
