Personal Tax Accountants

At Larking Gowen, we understand that our personal tax clients are individuals with different circumstances and requirements. Our team of personal tax accountants is highly knowledgeable and experienced, and we'll take the initiative to make sure you get the most from your earnings, covering all areas of personal taxation. 

Tax legislation, both UK and global, is constantly changing. It's easier than ever to pay the wrong amount of tax, so it's important you choose a tax advisor who can protect you from the consequences of non-compliance as well as maximising your wealth.

Our clients include individuals and businesses, landlords, people who are self-employed or in partnerships, entrepreneurs and pensioners. We also look after British citizens who live abroad and foreign nationals living in the UK.

Although we file nearly 10,000 tax returns every year, each one of our clients is treated as an individual.

We use dedicated software to file online returns that covers all aspects of income including trust and non-resident.

Our service isn't just about covering HMRC requirements and compliance. We take the initiative and make sure you're fully aware of any tax planning opportunities that will let you make the most of your money.

Personal tax returns are going through major changes, explained in the HMRC campaign Making Tax Digital. For more information please see our dedicated Making Tax Digital page

   

Inheritance tax

This is a complex area that can have a significant impact on you and your family's wealth. Our years of experience will help you plan effectively to minimise liability.

Capital gains tax

Rates can be as low as 10% for basic rate taxpayers, and on certain business assets that qualify for entrepreneurs' relief. Talk to us about how you can reduce or defer your capital gains tax bill. 

Residence and domicile tax law is a complex and fast-changing area that can bring unfavourable outcomes. This can be avoided with proper planning.

Our tax advisors act for hundreds of UK nationals who live overseas, and a large number of foreign nationals who live in the UK.

We have a wealth of experience in dealing with HMRC enquiries and are skilled at negotiating settlements. We offer a Tax Fee Protection Service which covers the cost of us defending you against an HMRC enquiry, giving you peace of mind. More details of this service can be found here.

We'll work closely with your financial advisor or financial planner to help you maximise your family wealth.

When a marriage or civil partnership breaks down, the last thing on your mind is your tax position. But the tax implications of separation can increase financial strain and make your economic circumstances worse.

To prevent this happening, it's worthwhile seeking tax and financial advice early on. We'll work closely and sympathetically with you and in cooperation with your legal advisor to reach the best possible outcome.

We'll also help with any financial implications where there's a family business involved.

Trusts allow you to set aside assets for future beneficiaries in a tax-efficient way while still keeping a level of control. For example, they can be used to soften the effects of inheritance and capital gains taxes.

We have a dedicated team of trust specialists to guide you through this complex area, finding the right trust structure for you, and giving a full range of management services.

These can include attending trustees’ meetings, preparing and submitting accounts, annual tax returns and inheritance tax forms.
