Efficient tax planning can lead to significant improvements to your bottom line. Our team can help you take advantage of tax opportunities and reliefs and act on your behalf in discussions with the tax authorities.

Annual Investment Allowance

The Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) provides a 100% deduction against taxable profits for the cost of most plant and machinery up to £200,000  in any 12 months. Where a company spends above the annual limit in an accounting period, the excess generally attracts allowances at a lower rate of 18% or 8%.

The threshold has changed several times in recent years and the rules for periods straddling the change in limit can be complicated. If you are planning significant capital expenditure, we can advise you on the best timing to maximise the tax relief available to you. 

Transfer pricing

Transactions between connected parties could be caught by transfer pricing rules. A transaction may be adjusted for tax purposes if the rules deem that it is undervalued. We can help you navigate these rules.

Controlled foreign companies

Foreign companies’ legislation ensures that companies pay UK tax on profits that have been artificially diverted to countries with lower tax rates.  

Advance planning is key to ensure that expanding in the form of overseas subsidiaries does not trigger unwanted tax consequences.

Talk to us about the tax implications of setting up overseas.

Company reorganisations

We can advise on all elements of your potential company reorganisation including Corporation Tax consequences, Payroll, VAT, considerations for individual shareholders and general housekeeping and administrative considerations. 

Raising finance through investment schemes

The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) is to help small, unquoted trading companies to raise capital. If you are looking to raise company finance, we can guide you through the process.

The Patent Box

The Patent Box relief provides a reduced rate of Corporation Tax for companies exploiting patented inventions or other innovations protected by certain intellectual property rights. Although a relatively new area, we are already exploring this with our existing clients and can work with you in making a claim.
