Covid-19 Update

We temporarily closed our offices to staff and clients on 23rd March 2020; and will await further advice from the Government on when it is safe to reopen.

In the meantime, we do have a small number of the team working from home, dealing with enquires coming in over the phone, email, and messages. Please bear with us if it takes a little longer than normal to respond to your queries.

Much of the support that has been announced over the past couple of weeks is not yet accessible – the complex systems and portals needed to claim are in the process of being built and tested by HMRC as a priority. Until they are live or more information is announced, it is a case of waiting patiently.

2020 Tax Returns.

We know many of you will be keen to get your 2020 tax return done, however this does not need submitting to access this additional support.  We are working out how we can safely and securely process your paperwork and returns whilst the offices are closed. We will post an update shortly. Tax Returns are upto the 5th April 2020, and the deadline for submission is 31st January 2021.

Online information & support.

There is currently lots of information online, and we appreciate it can feel a little overwhelming; especially with the amount of new terminology being used! We have posted links to trusted websites on this page (Internal Link).
