We have a dedicated barrister accountancy specialists who deal with all levels of the legal sector including barristers, those starting out in pupillage to QC’s and judges.

The difficulties in dealing with the intricate tax rules applying to barristers, mean that it is essential to get specialist advice in connection with your tax affairs.

Barrister accountancy and legal service advice

  • We can assist with the preparation of your income and expenditure statement and provide you with guidance on keeping your records in the most efficient way.
  • Our expert team can provide you with advice regarding your personal tax position and VAT matters.
  • If you have been a bit lax in submitting your tax returns, we have dealt with many cases of bringing people up-to-speed, submitting several years’ worth of tax returns at once and arranging settlements with HMRC.
  • Our specialist payroll department can look after the PAYE obligations for your chambers or domestic staff.
  • As a self-employed person, you are likely to be approached by HMRC at some stage, to enquire into your tax return. We can help you throughout the process and deal with them directly on your behalf.

Thought Leadership

Can incremental productivity gains deliver lasting value?

Most people already know that UK productivity is not as strong as it should be, but do you understand why it matters and what you can do about it?

In our latests business services insights report, we explore why and how business owners can boost productivity within their own operations.

Everyone Wants ‘More for More’

The customer mantra ‘we want more for less’ seems to crop up with remarkable regularity when discussing budgets and plans for the year ahead.

Instead of giving into such cost pressures, however, most forward-looking business services firms realise that the key to growth is convincing customers that they are worth ‘more for more’ – but how should they go about it?
