Capital Gains Tax CGT
Gains on sale of assets can be an unwelcome tax burden but there are several tax planning options available. Timing is the key and therefore you should start planning as soon as you have the remotest inclination of selling an assets.
For retiring business executives it is even more important to consider tax implications of sale of their business - as in other cases, forward planning can have a significant effect on tax payable. Our team has good experience to take you through the implications of CGT before the sale of your assets and options available to you if you have already sold them.
Corporation tax represents a substantial part of your trading costs if you are operating as a Limited company. Under Corporation Tax Self Assessment (CTSA), the legal responsibility for correctly calculating the corporation tax liability falls on business owners. Moreover, the increased reporting obligations, robust investigation policies on the part of the tax authorities, and harsher penalties for non-compliance mean that an undue amount of your time and resources can be taken up collecting revenue for the Government.

These strategies ensure that liabilities are known in advance and that maximum benefit is derived from allowances through forward planning. They also ensure that all tax matters including preparation and filing of tax returns are dealt with in time in order to avoid last minute rush and hefty penalties and interest.
