Year End Business Tax Planning
We provide or review your Management Accounts after 8 to 10 months of the year to:
Ascertain the projected year end position
Calculate the liabilities arising, and
Identify tax planning opportunities to reduce the liability
Knowing your potential tax liability before the end of the year and having the chance of discovering how this could be reduced is an attractive opportunity for many business owners. In establishing ourselves as a leading firm of Chartered Accountants in Essex our year end tax planning service has proved popular and allows you to identify by how much your liability can be reduced by considering bringing forward expenditure or making capital purchases before the year end.
We normally recommend that the tax planning accounts are for the third quarter or10th month so that the potential liability can be as accurate as possible whilst allowing time to take any action required to reduce the accounts. We also recommend that any spending undertaken does not put the business to a short term cash disadvantage and is expenditure, whether of a revenue or capital nature, which was already going to be made.
Examples of the type of expenditure might be additional salary, repairs and renewals or capital expenditure qualifying for capital allowances. With the new rules for expenditure on fixed assets qualifying for capital allowances it is important for business managers and owners to understand what allowances they are entitled to before entering into a financial arrangement.
Our team are able to undertake these calculations and provide appropriate advice on your spending plans. For a meeting to discuss this please contact your local Lambert Chapman LLP office or complete the form below so that we might contact you.
