Private Client and Tax

The burden on taxpayers to deal with an increasingly complex tax system becomes greater year on year. It is vital for taxpayers to meet their obligations not only to avoid the unwelcome scrutiny of HM Revenue and Customs but also the increasingly punitive penalties for getting the calculations wrong.

The Penningtons Manches personal and trust tax compliance team comprises qualified tax experts with access to one of the largest legal private client teams in the country. Our team assists resident, non-resident or non-domiciled individual and trustee clients to fully comply with their tax obligations and gives them the reassurance that their tax position is returned to HMRC promptly and accurately.

In addition to regular annual tax compliance, Penningtons Manches provides an expert service to individuals and trustees who require negotiation with HMRC. Due to the often complex nature of the taxation of individuals, trustees or beneficiaries, taxpayers often find that they have not paid the right amount of tax in previous years. The personal and trust tax compliance team can help alleviate clients’ concerns by computing the historic tax calculations and negotiating a beneficial settlement with HMRC.

The team is committed to providing excellent advice with proper consideration given to all available tax reliefs. We ensure that the right amounts of tax are paid and, where possible, produce substantial savings for our clients.

We offer expert advice on:

  • individual and trustee tax returns
  • compliance with tax legislation
  • tax reliefs
  • trustee inheritance tax filing requirements
  • historic tax accounting
  • remittance basis user tax calculations
