How can our East Sussex accountants help you?

Thinking of starting a business?

There's a lot to think about when first starting out in business. Not just developing the products and services and deciding who to target but there's all the financial and company structure to decide on too. There are many influencing factors to the decisions you need to make and the impact can affect your wallet not just your bottom line. Our Eastbourne, Hailsham and Brighton accountants have years of experience helping new business owners set out on the right path. We even have a great new Sole Trader v Limited Company comparison calculator to help you make some of the choices.

Need tax planning advice?

Our Eastbourne, Hailsham and Brighton accountants can help with all manner of tax planning. Help you to arrange your affairs to minimise a tax liability. There are many reliefs and provisions available to legitimately reduce a tax liability without straying into the rather more challenging area known as tax avoidance.

Examples range from simply choosing a year-end date early in the tax year to maximise the period from earning profit to paying tax, to arrangements to shelter an appreciating asset from inheritance tax.

Plummer Parsons have accountants in East Sussex who can help with personal tax planning as well as corporation tax planning. The key is to start early.

Tax planning is not just for large sums of money and investments. If you're a director in or you run your own business, then tax planning should start with how you choose to pay yourself for all your hard work. Recent changes in dividend tax have now made things even more tricky. Use our Dividend Tax Impact calculator to see how you're affected. For a more personalised strategy come and speak to our Eastbourne, Hailsham and Brighton accountants.

Submitting your self-assessment return?

It is a fundamental part of the self-assessment system that responsibility lies with you, the taxpayer, to file Tax Returns and pay the right amount of tax, at the right time - you must not wait for the HMRC. Our accountants in Brighton, Hailsham and Eastbourne are only too willing to help you get your finances in order and submit a return on your behalf. Don’t leave it until the January deadline however, the best time to make a start is now. We can even have your return submitted early!

Does your business need an audit?

As a business grows and becomes more sophisticated it can be hard to keep track of all financial opportunities and risks. An audit gives you the confidence that your financial statements are an accurate representation of how your business is performing. An audit will provide investors, banks, suppliers and customers with additional confidence that your business is in a good shape.

When deciding whether to supply or buy your products or services or to invest in your business, an independent audit gives assurance and enhances your reputation. It will help you spot trends to help you plan better for the future as well as identifying any potential problems before that they become an issue. Accurate financial statements checked against defined standards - International Standards on Auditing (UK) - will also mean you pay the right amount of tax which should make you and HMRC happy.

Saving for your retirement and pension planning?

In todays society we’re all living longer, saving for a pension has never been so important. Speaking to our Brighton accountants can help ensure that you’re saving enough each month to maintain the lifestyle you require as you retire.

If you’re a business owner there are substantial benefits to be gained by ensuring you use your pension contributions wisely.

These are just a few if the ways we're helping clients day to day. Browse through the website to see our full list of services.
