New Tax Year New Business Premises


We are pleased to announce that we have taken on business premises and are now operating from 24 Ardmillan Terrace, Edinburgh, EH11 2JW.

The phone number remains the same, and it will very much be business as usual as we have simply out grown our previous office space. With our founder living in Balerno, he will continue to have a presence there!

To all our existing clients, please do pop in for a quick look round if you are passing.   

To potential new clients, why not get in touch and see if we can offer you a competitive quote for your tax needs as there is currently no VAT on our fees!!


What will the 2011 Budget bring?

George Osborne will deliver his Budget next week, Wednesday 23 March 2011.  We shall aim to post some of the key points here so please revisit then.

Are you ready for the VAT increase?

From 4 January 2011 the VAT rate will rise to 20%.  That means for all items subject to VAT, instead of paying £17.50 on £100.00 of goods or services, you will pay £20.00 on £100.00 of goods or services.

Is there anything I can do to beat this increase??  If you are planning to buy goods in the next month or so, and you are able to do so, you could bring forward those purchases to before the VAT increase.  This could mean a decent saving if you are planning to replace the family car, for example.  For services, you could check with your provider.

If you are a VAT registered trader and are thinking of advancing your invoices to before the VAT increase then be sure to check HMRC's website for detailed guidance and take proper VAT advice.

If you think you need our assistance, please get in touch and remember an initial consultation is FREE! Plus our fees are VAT Free - see our homepage for more details.
