Professional practices

Partnership tax services

We have a unique expertise outside of London when it comes to dealing with the tax affairs of professional practices. For many years our two founding Partners ran the tax affairs of a large actuarial partnership. We can deal with the most complex partnership structure imaginable and we understand the nuances from an in-house and an external adviser perspective.

      Our clients

      Most of our clients are professionals who stay with us for a long time and we usually then act for the extended family or next generation. In one guise or another we have been tax advisers to many of our clients for over 15 years. Typically our clients have either a degree of complexity or wealth that drives them to engage a tax specialist as opposed to a general accountant or to risk doing the job themselves!

      We pride ourselves in delivering the highest quality service to all of our clients, and in constantly striving to improve the range and nature of that service. If you have a question that we can help you with, please feel free to get in touch.
