Tax services

Paying your way

Whether you’re a business owner trying to work out whether it’s beneficial to register for VAT, or an individual or family trying to navigate the complexities of inheritance tax planning, our comprehensive tax services can help.

There are lots of situations in life – both professional and personal – where a solid understanding of the tax system, what you have to do to comply with it, and how much you can save where possible, is really key.

From buying a property to gifting money to family, selling a business or starting up a new one, striking out as self-employed or beginning to trade overseas, tax will inevitably affect your decisions.

That’s where the value of a good accountant, with years of experience advising on all aspects of tax – big and small – comes into its own. At Cottons, we know our role when it comes to tax services: that’s minimising your risk, stress and confusion, alongside minimising any tax liabilities.

Our expert tax services team is always on your side – here to clarify and explain, advise and recommend, and process the admin on your behalf, too.
