Our Services

Every client is unique and deserves a unique service. Our philosophy is to put our clients first – to understand their situation and provide a first class service tailored to their specific needs.  Because we establish a one-to-one relationship with each client we are able to offer timely, individual advice on how to improve your business or personal finances.

As leading edge accountants we have developed the traditional bookkeeping, auditing, and accounting services into innovative client-focused services that provide not only all the reliable background support you would expect from a professional firm but also forward-thinking advice on how to improve your situation.

Whether you need help with growing your business or advice on optimising your personal or family finances, we are here to help you get the best results. See below for the full list of services we offer:

Personal Tax Planning

Our services are not restricted to businesses and we have a large core of personal tax clients. Whether you need assistance with your self assessment tax  returns or advice on inheritance tax planning, we can help you.

Our dedicated  team can provide the following services:

  • Advice on minimising tax liability for all personal taxes including:
    • Income tax
    • Capital gains tax (CGT)
    • Inheritance tax (IHT)
    • Non-domiciliary taxes
  • Completion and filing of relevant returns

Estate and Inheritance Tax Planning

Forethought and early planning is vital when making preparations for the future of your estate upon your death. Such anticipation may enable you to take full advantage of the tax opportunities available and therefore maximise the amount that is passed onto beneficiaries.

We provide a discreet estate planning service that includes:

  • Help in regards to drawing up and reviewing your Will
  • Making full use of exemptions and lower tax rates on lifetime transfers
  • Optimising lifetime transfers between spouses

  • Identifying adequate life assurance levels to cover potential inheritance tax liabilities
Self Assessment

Many taxpayers struggle to understand and complete these correctly. Deadlines and ever-changing tax legislation can make it difficult for individuals to fill out their tax returns to the standard that HMRC expects, and incorrect or late tax returns risk  incurring penalties.

Here at SA & Co. we offer a comprehensive self-assessment service, saving you time, worry and money. We will do all the necessary calculations, complete your return, and  even offer advice on how you can minimise your tax liability.

We can also deal directly with HM Revenue & Customs on your behalf and, should you be selected for a self-assessment enquiry, act for you at any meetings.

In addition, we can provide continual help and support with your ongoing tax affairs.
