24 Jul The importance of tax planning for directors
Paying tax is something you’re likely to see as a necessary (but not hugely enjoyable) part of running your business. But are you doing enough to plan your own personal tax liabilities?
As a director, you’ll pay your income tax annually on a self-assessment basis. But there are plenty of ways to make this a less costly and onerous task to complete.
Planning ahead when it comes to tax
By taking a forward-looking approach to your own personal finances, and working with an experienced advisor, you can start to minimise your tax costs and maximise the value you enjoy from your own earnings and company profits.
Working closely with us helps you:
- Know your future tax liabilities – by looking at factors like expected dividend payments, pension provision and additional income to determine what you will owe.
- Set up an annual tax plan – with provision for when payments should be made and when to set aside the funds needed to pay your income tax bill.
- Make use of any tax reliefs – so you can claim the relevant reliefs and tax initiatives that are available, to bring down the amount of your overall tax bill
- Maximise your earnings – by taking your earnings in the most efficient ways and managing your own personal wealth in a proactive manner.
