Is your business investing money in solving problems and working on specialist projects? Is there an element of doubt in the work you do, or are you taking risks to make an advancement in your field and develop systems and processes? If you can answer yes to the above questions, please read on as you could be eligible for R&D tax relief and could make huge savings on your company’s tax bill. For example, if your company spends £100,000 on R&D related employee salaries, utility costs, consumables and software, an additional tax saving of £26,000 could be made! This could go a long way towards covering the costs of a key employee. Gibson Booth Limited have already helped numerous companies to claim this generous relief, in a variety of different sectors. Examples of R&D activity can include: Developing unique alcohol bases, new or improved hop varieties, yeast strains, water recycling processes, new or improved products/recipes (food/alcohol industry) Advancements in structural techniques, innovative use of green technology, design, construction, testing of prototypes (manufacturing/construction industry) What to do next? If you think you are working on projects where there may be an element of R&D, please get in touch! We have a process in place which requires minimum effort from you. We have the know-how to maximise your claims, whilst keeping them valid. We operate on a “no-win-no fee” basis and only charge a fee once the claim is accepted by HM Revenue & Customs – you have nothing to lose! Please contact Salma Bahadur on 01226 213131 or salma.bahadur@gibsonbooth.co.uk

Value added tax is one of the most complex and onerous tax regimes imposed on business - so complex that many businesses inadvertently overpay or underpay VAT. The ever widening scope of VAT, the constant stream of detailed changes to the regulations, and the ever growing demands of Customs and Excise call for a trained professional eye to ensure that you do not fall foul of the regulations and do not pay the Exchequer more than you need to! We provide an efficient cost effective VAT service, which includes: Assistance with VAT registration Advice on VAT planning and administration Use of the most appropriate scheme VAT control and reconciliation Help with completing VAT returns Planning to minimise future problems with Customs and Excise Negotiating with Customs and Excise in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals

The term 'self assessment' is proving to be one of the great misnomers of all time. Many taxpayers struggle to understand the complex tax returns and complete them correctly. In the first year of the regime alone, 775,000 taxpayers received £100 penalties for failing to submit their returns on time, and some 400,000 incurred further penalties because their returns were still outstanding six months later! The constant stream of changes to tax legislation means not only that the returns are becoming even more difficult to understand but also that taxpayers risk incurring more penalties through failing to complete their returns on time or correctly. We can save you a lot of time, worry, and money by handling your self assessment for you. We will do all the necessary computations, complete your return, and even offer advice on how you can minimise your tax liability. We can act as your agent, dealing directly with the Inland Revenue on your behalf and, should you be selected for a self assessment enquiry, act for you at any meetings.

With the tax regime becoming more complex and more emphasis being put on taxpayers' individual responsibilities, everyone who is subject to taxation needs professional advice and support if they are to optimise their tax position and ensure they meet all the compliance requirements. We are the tax specialists. We can provide you with year round tax advice on: Income tax Capital Gains tax Inheritance tax Trusts and estates Non-domiciliary tax issues Every pound of income tax you save means more income at your disposal, every well planned disposal of assets means minimal loss of capital gains, and every inheritance tax saving means more benefit for your beneficiaries. Make sure you take full advantage of the tax saving opportunities open to you - call us today for a personal tax planning review.
