Service Detail

The following is an outline of the returns process intended for those wanting a more detailed idea of how we will work with you.

small ovalThe Free Consultation

This is a short conversation by 'phone usually lasting 10-15 minutes for simple affairs, perhaps half an hour or more if you have some issues to discuss. You will be given information about the service, and the opportunity to ask questions. We will establish what sources of income you have, the complexity of your affairs and which forms are needed. At the end of the conversation a fixed fee will generally be offered to act as your agent for the tax year. We confirm all prices quoted via email to ensure there is no misunderstanding. You can accept this price over the 'phone and proceed, or call back at another time. No "hard sell" will be made.

small ovalThe Information

In most cases you may prefer to post the majority of the information to us va email or in the post, this is your choice. A list of the required information will be emailed to you following the initial call. Due to the rather draconian money laundering regulations, two forms of ID will also be requested for all new clients.

When you have all the information together simply post or email it to us and you have done your bit.

small ovalThe Return

The return will be completed electronically from the information supplied, normally within 14 days, and often within 7. You don't need to worry about this bit although we may will probably need to contact you by phone to discuss your return in more detail and clarrify any points outstanding. When the return is completed we will send you a copy together with any backing schedules for your approval. Our cover letter will include details of how to pay your tax bill, and any constructive comments we may have about your affairs. We can issue you with either paper or electronic copies of all documents as you prefer.

small ovalThe Payment

When you are happy with the return, you can pay your invoice fee via direct bank transfer, cheque, or with a small surcharge via credit card. Your tax return will be submitted to the HM Revenue & Customs on receipt of these cleared funds.

small ovalThe End?

Well until next year. Although if you need it you will have access to a fully qualified Chartered Accountant for the duration the tax year for minor queries for no additional fee. We aim to look after even our smallest tax return clients with access to on-going advice where required.
