Company secretarial

Many businesses overlook the requirement of the need to complete the correct paperwork in line with Companies Act 2006.

Corporate tax planning

Corporation tax planning is an important part of a limited company to plan for its corporation tax. As there are many allowances which a company can claim to reduce its corporation tax liabilities such as ECA’s, annual investment allowance, investment in green technologies etc, all of which can be timed correctly and can reduce your corporation tax liability. On top of this we can also look at extracting income from over managed limited companies in a tax efficient manner to ensure the personal wealth of their owners. This is a very complex area of taxation and is specifically tailored to your business.
