Corporation Tax

All UK based limited companies are subject to corporation tax on their profits.

You must calculate for each accounting period how much profit your company has made and how much corporation tax is payable on those profits.

This information must then be reported to HMRC on a corporation tax return form, with accounts and tax computations submitted to HMRC in support of the return. Businesses typically need to file a corporation tax return 12 months after the end of their accounting period.

There are strict penalties for filing late returns and interest charged if tax is paid late, so it is important that deadlines are adhered to.

With corporation tax reliefs and rates changing on an annual basis, it’s essential to make the most of all of the exemptions, allowances and deductions available for tax returns calculations. Meacher-Jones can advise on the reliefs that you are entitled to that can help reduce your bill and ensure you report the correct information to HMRC.

Management Accounts

Management accounts are a set of financial statements prepared either monthly or quarterly, which provide clear insight into the financial trading position of your business.

Management accounts for small businesses typically include a profit and loss account, balance sheet, cash flow statement and a short report.

They aren’t required by law, and they don’t have to be filed with HMRC – but they’ll put you more in control of your finances than ever before, making it simple for you to check your progress as well as supporting day to day decision making and strategic planning.

Personal Tax

You are required to pay personal tax on money earned from your income, pensions, savings and various other benefits. Completing a Personal Tax Return, otherwise known as a self-assessment tax return, involves reporting your personal earnings for the relevant tax year.

Your personal tax deadline is midnight on 31st January the year after your tax year ends. For example, for the tax year ending 5th April 2020, it will need to be submitted before 31st January 2021. There is an instant £100 late penalty if the deadline is missed.

Meacher-Jones can take care of everything for you from completing the forms and calculating your tax liability or tax refund, to verifying all the information with you before submitting your Personal Tax Return to HMRC on time.

I have been a client of Meacher-Jones for 4 years and it is a real pleasure working with Alun Cartwright and the team.  

 Alun is cheerful and a pleasure to work with and he makes the daunting thought of tax returns an easy process. Alun and the team have been invaluable helping me with company tax issues and giving advice regarding the business.

I would have no hesitation recommending Meacher-Jones to any business.

Meacher-Jones have been my preferred accountancy team for a number of years now, Joanne Lark is a credit to the company and has been outstandingly helpful during all of my personal tax returns.

When first approaching Meacher-Jones I knew very little about personal tax returns and felt completely overwhelmed, at the time I had two incomes from self-employed revenue, and a PAYE employment income. Joanne explained everything clearly and helped me understand the process.
Better still in the following years all I did was drop off my invoices, bank statements, and receipts, Joanne then took all of this and completed my returns for me. The whole process could not of been any easier, or stress free.

I cannot recommend a better accountancy company for tax returns or general advice about business financials.

I am not a business owner but own a shared house rental property, resulting in the necessity of an annual tax return for HMRC.

Joanne Lark at Meacher-Jones has been dealing with this for me during the past five years and I am grateful for her help in interpreting both the form and the figures and generally ensuring all arithmetic is correct.  She reminds me when & what tax is due and is always happy to answer queries.

I find all the staff most pleasant and welcoming and can recommend Meacher-Jones as a small, friendly Accountants, combining efficiency with warmth and support.
