    The TACS Partnership LLP

  • New and growing businesses - The TACS Partnership can work with tax advisors and their clients with new or young businesses to help them understand the many tax challenges ahead. We look to find the best solutions which are tailored to the needs of the business, its directors and owners. We work with the advisor to deliver the optimal tax outcomes for their client.

    Existing businesses - The TACS Partnership can help guide an adviser’s clients who own ‘mature’ businesses towards solutions which address both the changing needs of the business and the requirements of the owners and executives. Approaches may need to be adapted as the business and personal needs change. We plan to ensure that whatever is put in place is the right fit for the business as it matures, ensuring an optimal tax outcome.

    Inheritance tax, trusts and estates - The TACS Partnership can advise on strategy both during life and after death to mitigate the potential tax loss that could apply on passing down the family wealth. Working closely with lawyers where necessary, we can help develop planning which achieves the optimum tax outcome whilst respecting the wishes of the individuals concerned.

    HMRC enquiries and investigations - The TACS Partnership will work with the adviser to help any client faced with an enquiry, explaining how HMRC will approach the case, ensuring that HMRC plays by the rules and supporting the taxpayer through the financial and emotion turmoil such investigations can bring. As far as we can we will shoulder the burden of negotiation, aiming to get the adviser’s client through the investigation and out at the other side with the least possible financial damage.

    Growing businesses - The TACS Partnership will work with advisers and their clients with growing businesses to provide bespoke solutions to the issues encountered and to encourage the business owner to think ahead in planning how to manage their tax position. Guidance will be crafted to allow the focus to remain on the business, not allowing the tax issues to become the dominant concern.

    Exits and business disposals -  The TACS Partnership can guide the adviser’s client through the maze of tax issues faced when a business is sold or the ownership of a business changes. This is a time of real risk that wealth will be dissipated by unnecessary tax charges and timely advice can be crucial.

    Cross-border issues - The TACS Partnership will work alongside the adviser’s client to explain and plan the impact of the UK tax rules on people moving into and out of the country. We can help avoid any unexpected tax shocks and ensure that tax bills are anticipated and managed.
