Self Assessment Tax Return

Please contact us if you require assistance with your Self Assessment tax return. If you have multiple streams of income, business expenses, assets that need to be managed, or need help filing and submitting your tax return, our tax team is available to assist you.


In order to avoid last-minute burdens or penalties associated with filing your tax return late, we recommend filing your return as soon as possible.


Additionally, our self-assessment tax experts can help you improve your tax efficiency along with your annual tax return.

Trust and Inheritance Planning

Trusts are often used to assist clients with their tax strategies. In addition to tax planning, trusts can also be used to protect assets. In the right circumstances, trusts can be a powerful tool for setting aside assets for future recipients outside the realms of inheritance tax in the right circumstances.


Atherton and Allen can assist by:


  • Helping you determine if trust planning is an effective solution for your needs
  • Making HMRC aware of the trust’s creation for purposes of inheritance tax, capital gains tax, and income tax purposes
  • Preparation of 10-year inheritance tax returns for trusts on appropriate anniversaries
  • Preparing income tax and capital gains tax returns and provide beneficiaries with tax information
  • Providing advice on inheritance and capital gains tax issues associated with trust creation and claiming any tax relief available

Partnership Tax

All partners in a business partnership are responsible for complying with self-assessment rules. It applies to both individual self-employed taxpayers and partnerships.


We provide highly skilled, experienced personal tax accountants to help make tax compliance easier for partnerships, so you can concentrate on your business. The following areas will be covered by our guidance, advice, and support:


  • Advice on forming a partnership
  • Advice on profit and capital sharing ratios
  • Advice on VAT registration
  • Allowable business expenditure advice
  • Calculation of taxable profits
  • NIC and Tax self-employed registration
  • Preparation of both personal and partnership tax returns
  • Tax considerations related to partners leaving or joining the partnership

Employee Share Schemes

The purpose of employee share schemes (also called employee share plans) is to motivate and reward key employees. A business can benefit from such arrangements by motivating its employees and accelerating its growth. It is possible for employers to directly award shares to their employees or to do so through a share program they have set up.


Tax issues surrounding the transfer of shares to employees are complex, so professional advice should always be sought. Get in touch with one of our personal tax accountants today if you have any questions about employee share schemes.

Property Tax Advice

An increasing number of tax issues arise when one owns a second property (or more). Individuals in this category will be subject to income tax on any rental income, as well as capital gains tax on any gains following the disposal of the property and additional Stamp Duty Land Tax when purchasing new properties.

Among the points to consider are:


  • A plethora of legislation has recently been introduced by the Government that could lead to additional tax charges on additional properties.  Following these changes, landlords should review their ownership structures, financing arrangements, and tax positions
  • To reduce capital gains on disposal, identify capital costs associated with acquisitions, improvements, and disposals
  • Determining which expenses can qualify for tax deductions for repairs or replacements
  • Maximizing tax relief for allowable expenditures


Please contact us if you would like further advice about your personal properties.

Divorce and personal tax

You probably don’t think about taxes when you’re going through a divorce. The final settlement, however, should not be underestimated due to taxation. When considering a divorce, separation, or any proposed settlement, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. 


Tax costs associated with transfers under a divorce settlement can be minimised with careful planning.


Feel free to contact one of our friendly team members if you need more information about tax and your divorce.
