Personal Tax Returns
Whether you are a landlord, limited company, sole trader or simply have a profitable side hustle, filing a personal tax return is one of your biggest responsibilities and it is important that you get it right!
Even if your tax affairs look simple, most business owners do not have the time, expertise or inclination to get to grips with it all. Which is why so many people end up paying more tax than they should or find themselves facing unexpected fines from HMRC.
At Treetops we regularly file hundreds of tax returns each year on behalf of our clients up and down the country – including Dunstable. Tax is our thing, so we are well versed in liaising with HMRC.
If you want to make your tax return process as seamless as possible, then let Treetops Chartered Accountants submit your form for you. Not only can you enjoy peace of mind that you are up to date with your submissions and payments, but we will even look for additional ways in which you can be tax efficient.
Capital Gains Tax
If you are considering selling, gifting or handing down personal assets such as stocks, shares, bonds or even part or all of your business, it is important to seek some tax planning advice beforehand.
Capital gains tax can be complex and getting it wrong could prove costly, causing significant increases to your tax bill. However, it is perfectly possible to massively reduce your capital gains tax bill and still be fully compliant with UK tax law.
At Treetops Chartered Accounting we can help to mitigate or reduce potential tax liabilities by showing you what costs you can offset and assisting in claiming valuable tax reliefs and exemptions.
Afterall, we want you to make the most of your assets and will work with you to calculate and quantify any tax payable, well ahead of your exit strategy.
VAT and Bookkeeping Services
At Treetops, we understand that bookkeeping and VAT are a distraction for most businesses, so our experts are here to take the burden away. And with the impact of both Brexit and government initiatives to Make Tax Digital, we can provide you with bookkeeping services to help you streamline your processes, saving you time and money in the long run.
We can be as flexible and as hands on as you wish, providing a full bookkeeping service from your office or ours. We can supply and submit your VAT statements on your behalf and offer planning and advice for the future.
Failure to identify and apply the correct rates of VAT can result in hefty fines and outstanding HMRC bills and have the potential to be the downfall for any business. So, if you prefer to concentrate on the money-making side of thing, why not outsource your accounting needs to Treetops?
Property Rental Accounting
There was a time when being a landlord seemed like the quickest route to living the high life. However, recent tax and stamp duty changes have made it trickier to turn a profit on a buy to let property.
If you are a landlord in the Dunstable area, it is more important than ever that you look after your financial responsibilities to achieve the maximum amount of passive rent and investment growth.
At Treetops Chartered Accounting we know that your tax approach will be unique to you, depending on your portfolio and goals. That’s why we provide expert property rental accounting, to help you navigate tax and achieve your objectives as efficiently as possible.
No matter how far along your business journey you are, at some point, you’re going to need some financial advice to help you get to where you want to be. This is where management reporting can really help.
A good management report should inform senior managers and directors on how their business is performing for them to make important yet informed day-to-day and long-term decisions.
Through an efficient combination of financial and statistical analysis we can analyse and interpret real-time information to make sure that your business is minimising risk, operating with sustainable investments, and performing at optimum efficiency and profitability.
By utilising our skilled and knowledgeable team at Treetops, we can produce management reports that you can trust and rely on when looking to improve your business results.
Construction Industry (CIS)
f you work in the construction industry; as a contractor, subcontractor or on a construction site; as part of your day-to-day duties, then you may be able to take advantage of a range of benefits when you operate under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).
Created by HMRC in order to facilitate the collection of tax from registered construction workers, the CIS provides peace of mind and ensures the correct amount of taxation is collected at all times.
As a contractor you are legally obliged to register for the scheme, but subcontractors are free to make their own decision. Tax deductions for those not registered, however, are likely to be taken at a higher rate.
Whilst the CIS aims at minimising tax evasion within the construction industry, the objective of the taxpayer is to pay as little as legally permitted. Tax calculation and CIS tax assessments are incredibly complex and often require expert assistance in order to ensure that you are not hampered with heavy taxation.
At Treetops we understand that the construction industry is like no other business and has very specific and unique accounting requirements. Our specialist construction industry accounting team can help with registering, managing and organising your CIS accounts as well as ensuring that contractors and subcontractors meet the regulations set out in the CIS.
New Business Advice
For most start-ups establishing their business is the main priority which means that the everyday financial tasks often take a back seat. But for a business to grow and be profitable, it is important that the fundamentals of basic accountancy and bookkeeping are met.
At Treetops we help many entrepreneurs in setting up their business – whether that is registering as a sole trader, limited company or, if applicable, a partnership. As there are tangible benefits and pitfalls for all, our qualified accountants are on hand to ensure that you make the right business decision for you.
We will not only take care of the registration process but will help you navigate the complexities of VAT, tax and bookkeeping, making sure that you are business compliant at all times. Afterall, running your own business is not for the fainthearted.
To make sure that your business is one of the 20% who succeed within the first year of operating, contact Treetops today for new business advice.
Auto Enrol Pensions
As an employer, you have a legal duty to automatically enrol your staff into a workplace pension if they meet the specified criteria and contribute to their payments.
As a business owner, employee pension schemes are often considered an extra burden to both your time and your budget and the new regulations are far from straightforward. This is where Treetops Chartered Accountants can help.
When it comes to Auto-Enrolment we can assist you to fulfil your employer duties and explain the varying rates of deductions and contributions as well as exemptions to the rule. We will help you to identify which of your staff must be enrolled into the workplace pension and support you in setting up monthly pension contributions from you and your employees.
Audit and Accountancy Services
In today’s fast paced, business world, reliable financial information is important to both organisations and investors alike.
Whether it is statutory or non-statutory, Treetops can provide an auditing service that provides you with an in depth financial view of your business performance. Highlighting key trends, areas of opportunity and profitability, and providing advanced warning of any potential problems we aim to add value to the auditing process through efficiency and experience.
So, whether you need an audit to review your processes and controls or require an analyses of your statutory financial statements and annual accounts for your investors; at Treetops we can provide a cost effective yet thorough auditing service.
Employment legislation and taxation are forever changing making payroll accounting a challenge. As an employer it is your responsibility to make the correct deductions from your employees pay for Tax and National Insurance as part of PAYE.
If you choose Treetops to manage your payroll accounts, then our expert team can calculate your employees contributions for you. We can also adjust these to encompass tips and bonuses and make deductions and adjustments for the repayments of student loan or payments towards pensions, sickness, paternity and maternity leave.
IR35 Accounting Assistance
IR35 is difficult to understand and assess and compliance has become even more of a minefield since the ‘off-payroll’ rules were applied to public sector organisations. These rules are due to be extended to the private sector as of April 2020.
Therefore, if you are currently a contractor, we can help you to determine your status as being either “inside” or “outside” IR35. Our specialist knowledge allows us to guide you through the new rules and regulations and advise you on the implications these changes will have to your tax contributions and pay.
