Personal Tax Advice

Personal tax advice from DS Burge & Co is available to anyone looking to get on top of their finances and reduce their personal tax liability. We can help you make the most of any available tax relief and ensure you stay compliant with HMRC.

There are many ways you will have to pay tax. For example, on your personal income, gains from the sale or disposal of assets, and on inheritance. The amount of personal tax you owe will depend on many factors, and your individual circumstances, which can make calculating your tax bill a complicated task.

We have provided tax advice to thousands of customers to help them navigate the complexities of personal taxation. Our team of dedicated tax accountants keep on top of the latest legislation, so you don’t have to. We’re here to give you the best tax advice, help you plan for the future, and make sure you don’t pay more than you need to HMRC.

 

Personal Tax Advice Services

We offer fully bespoke tax advice. Not only will we help advise you on any available allowances and relief, but we can also offer a complete range of accountancy services to help you stay on top of your personal taxation, from audit through to tax returns. Depending on your needs, we can help with:

  • Self Assessment Tax Return – if you’re employed, and your only income is through an employer’s payroll (PAYE) then your income tax will have already been deducted. However, specific individuals such as business owners, freelancers and high earners need to submit a self assessment tax return.
  • Capital Gains Tax (CGT) – if you’ve made or are planning to make any ‘gains’ from the sale or disposal of assets you may be required to pay CGT. The tax you’ll pay depends on several factors, the type of asset, and your allowance. Whether you need help as a private individual or a business, we can offer capital gains tax advice.
  • Inheritance Tax – Inheritance tax is payable on an estate (property, money and possessions) of someone who has died. There are a multitude of considerations when calculating the inheritance tax due to HMRC. We must take the estate’s value, any available tax relief and tax exceptions into account. If you need inheritance tax advice or want to understand the overlap with capital gains tax, we’re here to help.
  • Pension Tax Relief – Frequently, pension providers will calculate your contributions from your gross pay and take payment from your net salary. The provider will often claim back you tax relief at the basic tax rate, but if you pay the higher rate of income tax, you may be eligible to claim additional pension tax relief. We can help process your claim when we submit your tax return, or by contacting HMRC on your behalf.
