Accountants that make
tax less taxing.

Tax rules aren’t exactly designed
to be simple.

With the multitude of allowances, and tax rules that change constantly, it’s tricky to know whether you’ve done everything needed and feel confident you’ve not paid too much tax.

If you’d like to change that, whether you need support with self-assessment returns, capital gains tax, inheritance tax or want to manage your family assets through a trust, we’d love to talk to you about how.

Our clear, insightful and friendly approach is the reason some of our clients have been with the firm since we started in 1942.

“Over the years, our partnership has been invaluable.

James and the team at Hodgsons have been a consistent source of support, not only in the mundane task of dealing with my annual tax return, but also in providing wise advice on the more complex issues of inheritance tax.
The team are so friendly and helpful, and always prompt and efficient in dealing with queries. They are professional, personal, efficient, sympathetic and understanding, and totally discrete.
Of the two certainties in life, at least a client has the comfort of knowing that one of these is in order thanks to Hodgsons!!”

We focus on you, not just the numbers

Tax isn’t always black and white. And sometimes the most tax-efficient option won’t actually work for you. So we take the time to get to know you and understand what you want to achieve. Because only then can we help you make the right decisions for you and your family.

We make sure you don’t pay too much tax

No one likes an unexpected tax bill! So we help make sure you’re using all your allowances, claiming the relief you’re eligible for and submitting accurate returns on time. We make it a stress-free process too. Plus we’re always here to chat through any financial decision that might affect your tax liability so you don’t pay more tax than you need to.

Protect your family wealth through trusts

Whether you already have a trust, or are considering one to protect your assets, our specialist team will help you make sure it’s right for you and your family. We can oversee their set up, manage them, or help you wind them down. If you’d like us to manage a trust, we’ll review it annually to make sure it’s working effectively and can also support the trustees, and handle the tax and admin.

Seamless support if you also run a business

If you run a business, we can help you with that too, because we know it’s hard to separate the two! Find out how.
