Value Added Tax is one of the most complex and onerous tax regimes imposed on business - so complex that many businesses inadvertently overpay or underpay VAT.

So how can you ensure that your assets will reach your children, grandchildren and other relatives rather than ending up in the wrong hands?
Whether you are an employer, employee, employed or self-employed, awareness of National Insurance contributions (NICs) is vital. And with strong enforcement powers and anti-avoidance legislation available to HMRC, ensuring that you comply with your National Insurance contributions is of paramount importance.
Any client can be selected for enquiry by HMRC. It is estimated that there is a £40bn tax gap between what is due to HMRC and what they collect. As a result, HMRC has been tasked with reducing this deficit by £6bn over the next four years so all businesses are at risk of tax enquiry/investigation.
