Navigating the world of tax

As a firm of Chartered Tax Advisers, Brays are perfectly placed to help guide you through the often-baffling world of tax.

We will register to deal with HMRC on your behalf and make sure you always have a complete picture of your tax position. What’s more, we will use our expertise and resources to help you plan for every eventuality, so that you always know what’s waiting round the corner.

It’s not just business owners who can need help with tax; we also help lots of other people handle their tax affairs, including those who have property or investment income, have multiple jobs or pensions, have paid too much tax and need to claim it back, or have sold a residential property, to name but a few.

We also provide tax services to trusts and estates, dealing with all aspects of income, capital gains and inheritance tax compliance, and advising on the tax consequences of creating, changing or closing your trust.

If you are a business owner, we will of course make sure you comply with tax law. We will also help you determine the best way to structure your business, whether it is a sole trade, partnership or limited company, based on your specific requirements, as well as tax efficiency.

All our clients benefit from being able to pick up the phone and ask us about tax anytime, safe in the knowledge that we will know the answer.

You can find out more about Personal Tax or Business Tax on our services pages.

Or, if you have any questions about tax, contact us today to arrange a meeting.
