Whittingham Riddell offers a comprehensive range of taxation services to individuals, family-owned businesses, companies, trusts and charities. Services range from tax compliance, such as tax return completion,  to more complicated tax consultancy advice.

When it comes to tax, you want to work with experts. The level of tax awareness and sophistication that is found throughout our firm marks us out from our competitors.  

Taxation advice is provided by all Partners, a number of whom are Chartered Tax Advisers, being members of the Chartered Institute of Taxation. Partners are supported by qualified taxation accountants and consultants, in various specialist areas, and all these personnel have the backing of a dedicated tax team.

As tax advisers, our objective is to work closely with you to ensure that you pay the minimum tax required by law on the transactions you carry out. We help you understand the tax implications of your actions, so that you can plan ahead and conduct your affairs in a tax efficient way.

Tax Compliance

As you would expect, our focus on tax compliance services is on dealing with the routine matters efficiently, promptly and cost-effectively.

Our compliance service covers:

Personal Tax Returns
We contact you in advance of the filing date, obtain the data we need to file your returns on time and advise you of the tax you need to pay and when you need to pay it.  

Business Tax returns
Whether partnership, limited liability partnership or limited company, we will prepare and file tax returns. For maximum efficiency, we usually do this at the same time as our accounts team prepare the accounts.

Tax Investigation
With more Tax Inspectors focusing on investigation work, it is now not unusual to be the focus of an investigation or enquiry at some point. An investigation into your tax affairs can potentially be financially damaging and stressful. As experts and skilled negotiators, we can provide you with an adviser who understands tax legislation, compliance and HMRC procedures in order to deal with the enquiry in a positive manner.

Tax Consultancy

Between the average homeowner and the wealthiest businessman, there are a multitude of situations that merit sound tax consultancy advice. We aim to review your personal or corporate circumstances to devise an appropriate strategy for you.

As well as dealing with all aspects of income tax, capital gains tax, corporation tax and VAT, considerable emphasis is placed on the more complex aspects of taxation, whether this is protecting existing wealth or planning for the future.

We have tax consultants who specialise in specific areas of tax, including:

  • Estate planning for high net worth individuals
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Trusts and family settlements
  • Corporate restructuring and succession planning to achieve lowest tax result on sale of business
  • Corporate restructuring for asset protection
