Our employment tax specialists can help you through complex legislation to provide you with clear and practical advice. Challenges which employers regularly face include how to retain and motivate employees but also minimise costs and risks.

Private Client & Trusts

Sensible tax planning can simplify your financial affairs and protect your wealth. We can advise you on every aspect of your personal tax position, from dealing with your annual tax return to structuring your affairs efficiently.

Share Schemes

We can help you create a share scheme that attracts top talent, retains employees, and propels your business towards a thriving future.

Tax Disputes & Resolutions

Tax investigations by HMRC can be unsettling, and a drain on your resources and on you personally. Our team has in-depth experience of dealing with HMRC on behalf of private clients, businesses and trusts.

VAT

VAT is notoriously complicated so let us help you keep your affairs on track. We can help you reduce your VAT bill, prepare and file your VAT returns, attend VAT inspections, deal with any HMRC enquiries and advise on complex transactions.

Spring Budget 2024: Full summary

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt delivered his ‘Budget for Long Term Growth’ on Wednesday 6 March 2024. His speech promised “more investment, more jobs, better public services and lower taxes”.

Reversal on Emergency Budget

As the saying goes, a week is a long time in politics. However, recent events have been unprecedented. At the Mini Budget a new Prime Minister and Chancellor launched a new agenda, ‘The Growth Plan’.

We used the haysmacintyre tax advisory team to support our application to HMRC for a VAT recovery rate agreement. This was a drawn-out process, with multiple HMRC requests for information that was ultimately resolved satisfactorily. We really appreciated the time that the haysmacintyre team spent working with us on our application; they were patient and helpful, and dedicated senior resources so as to provide expert opinions that greatly helped with the process. They consistently met the HMRC deadlines, and were on hand at all times to answer any related queries that we had. All in all, they made a stressful process much more manageable, and we were very happy with the service we received.
