TAX

We connect the technical and commercial dots to help you get on top of compliance and mitigate future risk, while maximising relief and funding opportunities.

TALKING TAX

Our interconnected Tax team looks at your business and any challenges through multiple lenses, including tax advisory, shareholder tax, wealth management, outsourcing and corporate finance.

Getting on top of Tax has a direct impact, not only on a business’s existence and buoyancy, but also its ability to compete and grow.

There’s a certain breadth of expertise that we as advisers need to support businesses as well as prepare them for the future. We also need to be proactive in addressing Tax affairs to make sure our clients don’t miss out on big planning opportunities.

We’re a fast-growing, entrepreneurial business, and that’s our natural client sweet spot. They love us because we’re not too big to provide the individual attention and close relationship that they need, and we’re not too small to take on large-scale Tax projects. They choose us because our approach to Tax services is holistic, looking at both business and individual shareholder needs across compliance and advice.

Managing Tax risk, why it should be a priority

It may not be the glitziest side of a well-oiled business, but it’s hugely important. Failing to integrate tax considerations into all your key strategic decisions can put the brakes on your plans, leave holes in your strategy, and open up your business to risk.

TUNE UP YOUR TAX STRATEGY

By shifting tax from an afterthought to a driving force and optimising your tax position, you’ll better prepare your business for any economic or policy changes on the horizon, as well as significant events like mergers, acquisitions or sale.

Easier said than done? Maybe. We’ve spoken to hundreds of FDs and shareholders across the UK mid-market. We appreciate you often lack the time, resource, or a tight-knit tailored service from your tax adviser to make it happen. So, we’ve built a holistic tax offering to set that straight.

With a full suite of tax and advisory services, we can become your whole in-house finance team, an integral part, or an extension of it, looking at your business and shareholder aspirations through multiple lenses.

We’ll help you structure your business optimally, make sure tax always has a seat at the table, and help you highlight, manage and mitigate tax risk on all fronts.

While tax strategy will be unique to individual businesses, we’ve noticed 5 key red flags for you to look out for.

Testimonials

“We’ve dealt with Cooper Parry for many years and we’ve always had a good relationship with them. The R&D arm within Cooper Parry has changed, for the better, giving us even further benefit from the tax credits perspective, and giving us improved knowledge that we can apply going forward. The transparency and willingness to share information has been great.

We received improved tax credits for two years’ worth of information provided, once the team’s expert knowledge had been applied – money that we’ll be putting back into R&D. The reports provided were concise and professional. We’d definitely recommend Cooper Parry.”

“We have been going through a difficult period at the school which made our 2023 audit very challenging. The team at Cooper Parry showed a high level of empathy and understanding and worked with us to help facilitate a smooth audit process which we are very grateful for. They have continued to offer support throughout the year following offering advise and alleviating any concerns that we have had regarding the financial impact of the school’s situation.
