Taxation services

Minimising your tax bill from day one!

Most people would like to pay less tax, but usually leave it too late to be able to reduce their tax burden.

At Griffiths Marshall we take a proactive stance on planning your future tax liabilities, looking at each individual case, year on year. In doing so, we can give you the best advice on how to plan your business or personal affairs to limit the amounts you, or your family, may have to pay in the future.

However, calculating the tax and reducing the amount you have to pay, legitimately, is just one aspect of what we can do for you. We also endeavour to make sure you meet all the necessary deadlines with the relevant tax authorities, to reduce the likelihood of you incurring penalties or additional interest.

Tax Investigations

HM Revenue & Customs are stepping up their examinations under self-assessment for both individuals and companies and you may therefore find yourself on the receiving end of a tax investigation. We have helped many of our clients prepare for such investigations and can help take some of the stress and uncertainty out of them. In addition, we operate a fees protection insurance scheme, which can prevent you from incurring a large accountancy bill, should you or your company face an investigation.
