Tax Planning

Almost all of your tax planning can be handled by our renowned local ability. However to supplement this we also draw on the support of 55 tax partners in BDO Baker Street in London and further 28 partners in Pinsent Masons in the city to ensure that you receive the best quality advice available in the UK. This advice would normally be extremely expensive however we have negotiated rates with these firms to allow rates to be compared with partner rates for tax advice in Kent.

We would be happy to discuss all aspects of tax planning, helping you to minimise your tax liabilities and maximise your tax allowances. We can help to advise you on tax matters that concern:

Extraction of profits

The decision as to how to extract profit in the most tax efficient way has become much more complicated in the last two to three tax years. We therefore don’t leave this decision to chance and input your position into our specialist software to establish the most tax efficient result. We do this annually as tax rates and your income changes.

Exiting and selling your business

We have very good experience in working with the country’s leading acquisition advisers. We couple this with very efficient tax plans to ensure that you emerge from your business with the best results from your hard work.


Setting up family trusts is not only a tax vehicle but a means of protecting and directing your assets. Our Trust team are highly capable in finding the correct solution.

International tax

We have strong experience in working with overseas firms to ensure that the tax structure you achieve in the UK is the best globally.


VAT is an essential area to plan for. Our VAT Planning resource is widely regarded.


Your pre-yearend tax planning meetings have been extremely helpful in keeping our tax bills under control. Thank you!
