We can prepare and submit your Self Assessment tax return from just £175 per year. If you haven’t filed a tax return before, we can help you with the necessary forms to register. We can also liaise with HMRC on your behalf on matters such as enquiries, penalties and appeals.

If you have adjusted net income of over £50,000 a year and you or your partner claims child benefit, you must file a tax return in order to declare your liability to the High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC) – even if your only source of income is from a single employment. At HendersonTax, we understand this can be a pain for individuals who have never needed to file a tax return before. If the only reason you need to file a tax return is because of the HICBC, we can offer you a special rate of just £99 per return.

Pensioners’ tax affairs are often complicated by the fact they have a number of different sources of income in retirement. In addition, the fact that the UK state pension is paid gross but is nonetheless taxable can cause tax underpayments which need resolving. We can help by reviewing that your pensions are being taxed correctly and assist in claiming a tax refund if you have overpaid.

The taxation of savings can be surprisingly complex, especially when you have a number of different investments. HMRC does not always get it right! We can provide advice on any aspect of the taxation of savings, including life insurance policies. We can also help you claim a refund of taxes overpaid.

For most employees, the PAYE system works well. But for others, it doesn’t! We can provide advice or support regarding any aspect of employee taxation and payroll matters. For example, we can help you make sense of your tax coding notices or P800 reconciliations, ensuring that your tax code works for you and not against you, so that you pay no more or less than you need to. Or if HMRC are issuing payment demands for underpaid PAYE, we can help you determine whether the amount is correct, whether HMRC are legally able to make the demand, and what action you can take.

We have special expertise in this complex area. If you need help making sense of the Statutory Residence Test, understanding how your foreign income and gains are taxed in the UK, or even in understanding a double taxation agreement, you are in safe hands with us. If you have a foreign aspect to your tax affairs this can make them especially complicated and it’s not worth the risk of getting it wrong!

Have you been contacted by HMRC inviting you to make a disclosure for your offshore income and gains under the Worldwide Disclosure Facility? If so, you need professional advice. The taxation of foreign income can be complicated enough, even before considering the rules around the number of years you need to go back and the penalties and interest which may be applicable. If you get it wrong, HMRC can charge you penalties of up to 200% of the unpaid tax! Get in touch today to see how we can help.

If you are intending to sell a property or other asset, we can help you understand the tax consequences and ensure that you comply with your obligations relating to Capital Gains Tax. In particular, if you are selling a property which has at some point been your main home, we can help you understand any private residence relief that you may be entitled to. We can also assist with the new 30-day reporting requirements which have been introduced since April 2020.

Most landlords will need to complete a Self Assessment tax return to declare their rental profits. We can advise on what you need to do in order to be compliant with HMRC while ensuring you claim tax relief for your expenses or losses where appropriate.

National Insurance is often described as the forgotten tax. We can help ensure that you are paying the right amount and provide advice on entitlement to benefits such as the state pension based on your National Insurance record. We can also help if you need to claim a refund of National Insurance or pay for previous years to plug any gaps, if appropriate. If you have lived or worked overseas, or you intend to, we can also advise on the impact – this can be especially complicated so if this applies to you then we strongly recommend you seek advice!
