Personal Tax

Navigating through the complexities of personal tax can be daunting without the right guidance. Effective tax management ensures you meet your legal obligations while optimising your financial opportunities. At Smart Accountants, we specialise in making personal tax management straightforward and stress-free. Our team of expert accountants provides tailored advice, ensuring that every client benefits from the most advantageous tax strategies. Whether you’re dealing with income tax, inheritance issues, or investments, our comprehensive service covers every aspect to secure your peace of mind.

Self Assessment

Self Assessment is a system HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) uses to collect Income Tax. Tax is usually deducted automatically from wages, pensions, and savings. However, individuals and businesses with other sources of income must report it in a self-assessment tax return.

Accurate and timely filing of tax returns is crucial to avoid penalties and ensure you pay the correct amount of tax. At Smart Accountants, we help you navigate the complexities of Self Assessment, from initial registration through to final submission.

Capital Gains Tax

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is charged on the profit you make from disposing of assets such as shares, properties, or valuable antiques. Understanding the specific rules that apply to different assets can be confusing. We offer expert guidance on CGT liabilities, reliefs, and exemptions. Our tailored advice helps clients plan their disposals strategically, potentially deferring or reducing tax due. Whether you’re selling a second home, shares in a business, or other personal assets, our team ensures that you make informed decisions that align with your financial goals.

Income Tax

Income tax is one of the most significant considerations for UK residents. Knowing your tax bands, allowances, and potential deductions is key to effective tax planning. We provide comprehensive support in understanding your income tax liabilities, ensuring you take full advantage of all available allowances and deductions. Our services include planning for high earners, advice on tax-efficient ways to draw income from your business, and strategies for managing taxable investment income, all designed to minimise your tax burden and maximise your take-home pay.

Inheritance Tax

Inheritance Tax (IHT) can significantly affect the value of the estate you leave behind. Planning for IHT involves understanding various thresholds, exemptions, and potential reliefs. We specialise in proactive inheritance tax planning to help reduce your estate’s IHT liability. This can involve advice on gift allowances, the use of trusts, or strategic estate planning to ensure your assets are passed on to your loved ones with minimal tax impact. Our approach is personalised, ensuring that your estate planning fits your specific circumstances and family needs.


Pensions are not only crucial for retirement planning but also offer significant tax advantages. Contributions to pension schemes are eligible for tax relief at your highest rate of income tax, providing an immediate return on your investment. We advise on how to maximise these benefits, whether you’re an employee, self-employed, or a business owner. Our guidance covers the selection of suitable pension schemes, tax-efficient withdrawal strategies, and planning for lifetime allowance and other tax charges related to pensions.

Residence and Domicile

Your tax status in the UK, determined by residence and domicile, affects your liability for UK tax on worldwide income and gains. Smart Accountants helps you understand the statutory residence test and its implications for your tax status. We provide crucial advice for expatriates and those with international aspects to their finances, ensuring compliance with UK tax laws while optimising your global tax position.

Savings and Investments

Effective management of savings and investments is key to optimising your financial profile and minimising your tax liability. Interest, dividends, and capital gains can all attract tax, making it essential to understand the most tax-efficient vehicles for your investments. We offer expertise in ISAs, bonds, stocks, shares, and other investment products, providing strategies that balance return on investment with tax efficiency.


Trusts are an excellent tool for managing and passing on assets in a tax-efficient manner. They can provide significant advantages, such as reducing inheritance tax liability, protecting assets, and controlling how your wealth is used by future generations. We provide comprehensive advice on setting up and managing trusts, ensuring they are used effectively to meet your personal and financial goals.
