Personal Tax Planning

Most people during their lifetime are subject to taxation such as PAYE, NIC, Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax. As tax regulation becomes increasingly complex, individuals and business owners find themselves seeking professional advice to ensure that they are compliant to avoid incurring fines or penalties.

Personal tax planning advice from Hall Livesey Brown will not only give you peace of mind in knowing that you have paid the correct amount of taxes, but will also present tax saving opportunities to achieve maximum savings through careful, focussed tax planning.

Corporate Tax Planning

Corporate tax planning should form an integral part of your business strategy, supporting business objectives and being key to the decision making process. A well-informed tax strategy can maximise your savings and minimise liabilities, which is vital to the sustained growth of your business.

Our tax experts will ensure that you take full advantage of the tax reliefs available by recommending the most tax efficient structure for your business and identifying tax opportunities specific to your business and industry. Our aim is to help minimise your corporation tax liability, now and in the future.


We have partnered with Croner-Taxwise and Abbey Tax to provide you with a specialist VAT preparation and advisory service. We will ensure that you comply with the ever-changing regulations of VAT. We can help with all aspects of VAT, including registration, administration, reconciliation and completion.

Capital Gains Tax

The disposal of most assets can create a charge to Capital Gains Tax if the gain after taking into account the cost of the asset exceeds the annual exemption. There are many tax planning opportunities to negate the incidence of Capital Gains Tax.

Our tax experts will advise on tax efficient ways of holding assets (such as property) and will monitor the market in order to recommend the most appropriate time for a purchase or sale.

Retirement Planning

Retirement planning is better done as early as possible. We make it our priority to understand your personal objectives and coordinate these along with effective tax planning to fulfil your wishes for retirement. At the same time, we aim to minimise your current and future tax liabilities.

We can advise on exit strategies, pension provision, savings and investments and life assurance in partnership with our trusted network of advisors.

Succession Planning

With our years of experience working with family businesses, we can help you develop a strategy to exit your business and extract value in a tax efficient manner or pass on the business to family members during and after your lifetime in a tax efficient, fair and equitable way.

HMRC Investigations

We have the experience and expertise to help businesses before, during and after a HMRC Investigation. Our aim is to work with you to minimise the risk of fines, penalties and prosecutions and provide you with peace of mind that your business is fully compliant.

R&D Tax

R&D tax relief is the UK’s most generous corporation tax relief available and yet many companies who are eligible and would benefit from this regime don’t claim.

We have partnered with the specialist in-house R&D division at Abbey Tax to assist you with your R&D tax relief claim. Backdated claims can be made for the past two accounting periods which can often result in a significant repayment of Corporation Tax or if your company is loss making, a claim for R&D tax credits.
