With April 5th just around the corner, it’s important to check your tax position for the 2017/18 tax year. Any potential tax planning will need to be considered sooner rather than later. We've devised a checklist of the top 10 year-end tax saving strategies for business owners and high-net-worth individuals. This includes some quick wins and some more complex ideas to ensure that full advantage of the allowances and reliefs provided by the Government are taken.
At First Wealth, our approach to tax planning is simple: if we can save you tax, then this is an immediate return on your capital. With such a close link between financial planning and tax planning, it’s essential that we have a detailed understanding of both. Our tax advice can be broken down into two main areas:
- Tax planning on earned income, savings, profits, income tax and capital gains tax.
- Tax planning around accumulated wealth or inheritance tax.
Our advice incorporates all aspects of tax planning, from the basic building blocks of financial planning such as ISAs and Pensions, through to more complex structures such as Venture Capital Trusts (VCT) and Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS), as mentioned in the infographic above.
The mitigation or reduction of inheritance tax liability is also important for many of our clients. Our advisers will help you build and deliver a financial strategy that will help pass assets to your beneficiaries, while giving you maximum control of your assets through your lifetime.
