Q What’s an accountant?

A Someone who solves a problem you didn’t know you had in a way you don’t understand.

Ask us to look after your personal tax affairs, and you’ll find we take a more proactive approach than many accountants – by expertly looking for ways to improve your tax position, rather than just reporting on it.


What we can do:

  • annual tax planning and returns
  • capital gains planning and returns
  • stamp duty planning and returns
  • wealth planning
  • inheritance tax planning and returns
  • personal balance sheets (shows change in wealth, year-on-year)

Who we do it for:

  • people retiring
  • company directors
  • people with income from rent, equity or other investments
  • families, relating to death or divorce

How we do it:

  • with fixed fees – however long the job takes
  • a quick turnaround
  • by phone and email (not lots of letters)
  • in plain English
  • by looking for ways to reduce your tax bill

Next step: come in for a coffee and a chat, and we’ll take it from there. Contact us to book a time that suits you.
