Taxation Services

Individuals and businesses would like to pay less tax, but usually leave it too late to be able to reduce their exposure to tax. At Knights we like to take a proactive stance on planning your future tax, looking at each individual client, year on year. By doing this we can give the best tax advice on how to plan your business or personal affairs to limit the amounts you, or your family, may have to pay in the future.

Calculating the tax and reducing the amount you have to pay, legitimately, is just one aspect of what we can do for you. We also endeavour to make sure that you meet all the necessary deadlines with the relevant tax authorities, this reduces the likelihood of you incurring penalties or additional interest charges.
