tax returns and self assessment

Filling in a self-assessment form can be a real headache


Our team can help you by completing this task for you and offer some helpful insights to the whole process.  Did you know for instance, you can claim the cost of our accountant’s fees – for preparing your tax return,  – as a tax deduction.
You could try to complete your tax return by using one of the many online services that are springing up.  However an article in the
Guardian had someone saying  – “We hear horror stories of completely unqualified people setting up websites where the charges are highly misleading. They have a low upfront cost, but then lots of add-ons.” – Why take the risk?
As part of our commitment to our customers we offer a free initial face to face consultation. Our relaxed and friendly staff will assess your requirements and provide honest expert advice to you through our dedicated personal service. Call us now for further details on the services available through Bell and Cawthorne.
