KPS Chartered Accountants’ aim has always been to provide clients, both existing and new, with a cost effective, proactive, thoughtful and relevant service in order to assist them meet their accounting and tax obligations and to provide assistance, advice and solutions that can add value to clients in all aspects of their business and financial affairs. In many cases this has involved working with other professional advisers such as lawyers, banks, architects, finance providers, financial advisers and estate agents.
Kyran has built up an extensive knowledge of tax over many years, dealing with many varied tax issues across a wide range of business sectors. Tax now seems to have become an incredibly complex area. An increasing responsibility is being placed on the tax payer to get it right first time and on time. At the same time and because of the complexity of the tax system it can be important not to overlook valuable tax reliefs that are available especially in relation to, for example, capital allowances (in relation to business property), capital gains tax, inheritance tax and research and development. In addition consideration should also be given to ensuring that, where relevant, the tax structure of a business or how profits are extracted from the business are tax efficient.
