Tax optimisation

Our financial advisers can help you plan your finances and invest in ways that will minimise the amount of tax you need to pay.

No-one wants to leave the taxman a tip!

Few of us relish the idea of paying more tax than we need to, but tax rules in the UK are amongst the trickiest in the world. They are very complicated and change often.

There are perfectly legitimate ways for you to reduce the tax you have to pay. These include maximising your allowances to make pension contributions, and paying into ISAs and other products that attract tax relief.

Business owners can make use of their business to reduce tax. Trusts can also be used for tax planning, but they are complicated and not always right for your circumstances.

Tax savings can also be made with effective estate planning which can reduce or even eliminate the amount of Inheritance Tax that has to be paid when you die. However, few of these approaches are straightforward and they should form part of a broader financial plan.

Maximise tax allowances
We’ll advise you on how to maximise your allowances to pay as much money as you can afford into pensions and other investments.
Identify opportunities
We’ll identify alternative ways of investing wealth, such as trusts and bonds, which are tax-efficient but still help you achieve your goals.
Identify pitfalls
It’s easy to end up paying tax unnecessarily. For example, the rules around Capital Gains Tax change frequently. We can help you avoid those pitfalls.
