As well as standard corporate and personal tax services, we also offer the following:
We offer a full review of your IHT and estate position with a view to minimising the overall Inheritance Tax liability. We will ensure that you make the best use of all of the available IHT reliefs and allowances.
There are many tax opportunities available and the earlier arrangements are made, the greater the chance of taking full advantage of our complicated tax system.
We provide a discreet comprehensive estate planning service that includes:
- help with planning and reviewing a will;
- making full use of exemptions and lower tax rates on lifetime transfers;
- optimising lifetime transfers between family members;
- transferring agricultural or business property;
- transferring assets into trust; and
- arranging adequate life assurance to cover potential inheritance tax liabilities.
We also have expertise in dealing with trusts; a relatively easy and very tax efficient way to set aside assets for future beneficiaries outside the inheritance tax net. We can advise on the most suitable type of trust to fulfil your wishes, assist in setting up the trust and provide the full range of accounting services required for trust management.
HMRC investigations of any kind are costly in time and even more costly in the emotions they engender. The distraction they cause is likely to prevent you from effectively running your business. So is it possible to avoid them?
The honest answer is that no one has absolute immunity from investigation. There is always a small random element in the choice of cases for enquiry but there are a number of basic things that you can do to help improve your position.
We are therefore delighted to announce that we have joined forces with a specialist consultant, John Norman, to assist individuals and businesses who find themselves subject to HMRC’s attentions.
We offer a Tax Investigation Service for you and your business at a fixed cost. When you subscribe to this service we can make a claim against our insurance policy in respect of our fees incurred when we enter into correspondence with H M Revenue & Customs on an enquiry either into an individual or a business. The cover is extensive and will include both aspect and full books and records enquiries along with VAT and PAYE disputes. Also, a fairly unique aspect of this service is that it will include the new HMRC intervention visits.
Employers need to attract, retain and motivate employees, while controlling employment costs and risks against a background of the increasing cost of PAYE and NIC.
At Harts we aim to manage your tax and NIC exposures without increasing your administrative burden.
You may just want advice on a one off compliance issue, or perhaps you are thinking of introducing a completely new benefit package.
