Tax Planning

Alongside pre-year-end tax planning meetings, we can also offer broader tax planning for Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax mitigation.

As Chartered Tax Advisors, we are passionate about helping you to save tax wherever possible.

We offer pre-year-end tax planning meetings as an add-on service, and many of our clients find these invaluable as it allows us to forecast expected corporate and personal tax bills while there is still time to make changes that will reduce the tax burden.

We also love helping clients with group structuring, and Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax planning.

Digital Automation

It’s no secret that KRW are huge advocates of Xero. In fact, we were one of the earliest adopters and we have worked with them since 2009 and we are now Platinum Partners with the UK’s number one accounting software.

Our flourishing relationship with Xero has coincided with the rapid developments in the “FinTech” world as a whole, and we have created the perfect toolkit (otherwise known as an App Stack) to offer our clients, and automate their accounting processes as much as possible.

Xero’s open API allows other apps and software to connect in, which means that there is no duplication of work across multiple systems, and also helps reduce the risk of human error. In addition to this, it allows us to build a cloud based accounting system for you that is not only automated, but that is bespoke to you and your business.

Xero links with hundreds of other applications but the ones we work with mainly in our App Stack here at KRW are the following:

App Stack

Business banking – but not as you know it. Apply for a free digital business account in minutes and join over 270,000 UK businesses who have changed the way they bank.

In addition, we allow our clients to use our address as their Registered Office and Director’s Service Address if required.

Xero is the cornerstone to KRW’s App Stack, and has been revolutionary when it comes to bookkeeping, as it's made your company financials far more accessible, and puts them in a language that even an untrained eye can understand.

Xero is cloud based software, which allows the client, the bookkeeper, and the accountant to access the information at any time, and from anywhere.

One of the best features of Xero, is the automatic bank feed which links to your internet banking and uploads the most recent bank transactions daily, allowing you to see who has paid, but more importantly who hasn’t! With Xero available on mobile devices as well, you can raise invoices whilst on the move, and you can even schedule invoices to be emailed to your customers on future dates, so that Xero continues to work, even when you’ve stopped. Xero’s support is available 24/7, so there is always someone on hand to help you. But if your query can’t wait, we are always on hand to log in and run you through the solution over the phone – that’s the beauty of cloud based software.

So for your free Xero trial, please get in touch and we will get you and your business set up and ready to go. You’ll wonder why you hadn’t done it sooner.

Whatsmore, we are currently offering free Xero training to our clients as an added incentive to get on board with our love for Xero.

Compliance Services

At KRW we can meet all of your compliance needs, from preparing accounts and tax returns to auditing

While we believe that you should choose an accountant for the advice they can give to help you run and grow your business, we appreciate that most business owners initially engage the services of an accountant to assist them with compliance tasks, such as preparing annual accounts and tax returns, in order to meet their obligations.

We help our clients to keep on top of what needs to be filed, and we are sticklers for making sure filing deadlines are met so that late filing penalties are avoided.

In summary, we’re on hand to assist with all the necessary tasks so that you can focus on running your business.

But don’t worry, we’re also there to provide all the advice you need to run your business effectively and tax efficiently, as we believe this is what truly sets us apart from our competitors.
