Tax planning

If you think about it, most people’s biggest outlay, except perhaps their mortgage, is taxation.

And take into account National Insurance, which is a tax by any other name, and over 40 per cent of your income is grabbed by the state.

Add to that VAT on most things you buy, and an astonishing over 68 per cent of every pound you earn ends up in The Treasury’s coffers.

With such vast sums being taken from you, and we haven’t even mentioned all the other ‘stealth’ taxes conjured up by governments such as Air Passenger Duty, it would be irresponsible of you not to minimise the amount of tax you pay where possible, if only to safeguard your family’s standard of living.

Obviously, VAT is unavoidable. But there are still perfectly legal ways of safeguarding your hard earned cash and keeping it out of the clutches of the taxman.

As a matter of course, we would scrutinise your investment portfolio to make sure you are using all available tax allowances.

But we would also look at your current circumstances, and what you expect those circumstances be in the future, to make certain that the coming years are planned for in a flexible and tax efficient way.

Tax treatment is based on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.
