Self assessment

Sparing you the headaches

The term 'self assessment' is proving to be one of the great misnomers of all time. Many taxpayers struggle to understand the complex tax returns and complete them correctly. In the first year of the regime alone, 775,000 taxpayers received £100 penalties for failing to submit their returns on time, and some 400,000 incurred further penalties because their returns were still outstanding six months later!

The constant stream of changes to tax legislation means not only that the returns are becoming even more difficult to understand but also that taxpayers risk incurring more penalties through failing to complete their returns on time or correctly.

We can save you a lot of time and worry by handling your self assessment for you. We will do all the necessary computations, complete your return, and offer advice on how you can minimise your tax liability.

We can act as your agent, dealing directly with H M Revenue & Customs on your behalf and, should you be selected for a self assessment enquiry, act for you at any meetings.

We offer all clients fee protection insurance through our group insurance scheme with Abbey Tax Protection that covers our fees for acting on your behalf if you are selected for an enquiry – giving you further peace of mind at a much lower premium than is normally available direct.
