Tax and Financial Strategies 2016/17

Posted: 15th June 2016

For all the media controversy about the tax arrangements of multinational corporations, sensible tax planning within the law remains a perfectly legitimate practice for normal businesses and individuals. There are numerous allowances and incentives in place, and this guide is designed to help make you aware of the main opportunities for minimising tax, so that you might incorporate them into your financial strategy.

However, the sheer complexity of the UK tax system means that you need expert advice and planning strategies in order to remain compliant, while also ensuring that you don’t pay more tax than is necessary.  We therefore recommend that you view this guide as a starting point and contact us for specific advice.  Every individual and every business situation is different, and what works for one party may not be appropriate for another.

Remember also that minimising your tax liability should form just one part of your financial planning or business development strategy, and is should not be viewed as an end in itself to the detriment of your wider goals.

As your advisers, we can help you to meet those goals – do contact us for one-to-one advice tailored to your individual circumstances.
