In today’s world of increasing wealth, unprecedented entrepreneurial success and ever-changing tax legislation, business and individuals need to think very carefully about tax planning.

Without thinking ahead and taking advantage of the many tax saving opportunities available to them, businesses and individuals will end up paying much more in tax than they need to – whereas seeking specialist tax planning advice could save you an awful lot of money.

The importance of tax planning for businesses

For those running a business, the amount of tax paid will always be directly linked to the amount of net profit you have earned.

With this in mind, effective tax planning is absolutely vital to ensuring that your business is running tax efficiently, and ultimately successfully, in the long-term.

In many cases, it is possible to achieve tax savings by:

  • Establishing the right business structure.
  • Maximising the allowances on qualifying capital expenditure.
  • Maximising the deductions for allowable expenditure.
  • Ensuring that any withdrawals from the business are made in the most tax-efficient way.
  • Structuring shareholdings and borrowings correctly.

The importance of tax planning for individuals

Effective tax planning is equally important for individuals – who can easily get caught out if they do not take advantage of the allowances and tax saving opportunities available to them.

It is possible to save money on personal taxes by:

  • Maximising the benefits of your, and your spouse or civil partner’s, personal allowances and basic rate bands.
  • Making best use of your tax-free benefits and salary sacrifice schemes.
  • Owning the most tax-efficient motor vehicle for you and your family.
  • Keeping on top of appropriate pension contributions for you and your family.
  • Making the most of tax-efficient borrowings and interest relief.

At Lamont Pridmore, our tax specialists will work closely with you so you can consider the tax implications of every important decision before it is taken.  Our approach has nothing to do with tax avoidance, instead it is just good housekeeping to ensure that you can legally claim the allowances and reliefs that you are entitled to.

We will also undertake an annual tax planning review 3 months before your financial year end and again 3 months before the 5th April each year, to ensure that you keep your business and personal tax liabilities to a minimum.
