A great deal of tax can be saved by careful planning. Successive governments recognise the essential role entrepreneurs play in wealth creation. It’s the blood, sweat and tears (or more accurately the optimism, vision, innovation, determination and resilience) of the business community which creates the tax take and ultimately sustainable societal security (careful choice of adjective). Our politicians understand that the country must encourage UK businesses to drive the productive and gainful employment of the population. The multi-nationals can take their jobs anywhere in the world, and, of course, they do. It therefore falls upon the SME sector to provide this vital employment. Successive governments are showing increasing encouragement to make this country business friendly.

The tax landscape in the UK is therefore characterised by low business tax rates, a 10% capital gains tax rate for the first £10m per person of qualifying gains on business assets and some world beating reliefs specifically aimed at driving innovation and the much-lauded knowledge economy.

Whether in emerging or traditional sectors we ensure every aspect of your tax position is carefully managed to help reduce the overall tax burden.

a few kind words

As the CEO of a publicly funded multi million-pound organisation that is continually held to the highest levels of scrutiny, I require an external audit function that is second to none. gbac has ensured that both my board and I not only have confidence in relation to our continued compliance, but also that we have an associate that has supported our sustained development over a number of years. The intrinsic value that is the advice and support offered cannot be underestimated and is an example of why gbac are much more than merely our external auditors.

Mr D Dickinson
CEO, Waterton Academy Trust
