Private Client Tax

Entrepreneurs, non-doms, high net worth individuals: It seems the more money you earn, the more complex the tax landscape becomes. There’s no one size fits all here. You need to work with a partner who’ll tailor the service to your unique needs - and one with an international mindset, too, to advise on your entire wealth portfolio. 


Tax legislation is increasing, and with tougher penalties for failure to comply, it’s more important than ever to ensure you are compliant. Our team provides a bespoke service that helps you meet your compliance obligations in a tax-efficient and timely manner. And if your tax return is chosen for an enquiry by HMRC, we also offer a fee protection insurance which covers the costs of our professional fees. 


Our expertise doesn’t only cover tax and accountancy; we are also skilled in business strategy, corporate finance, restructuring and wealth management. With this broad knowledge, we can work with entrepreneurs and their businesses at all stages of the entrepreneurial life cycle - ensuring current obligations are balanced with future plans.

High net worth individuals

Our team provides a partner-led service that tailors advice to your particular needs, including wealth preservation for future generations, international and cross-border issues, and wealth-structuring vehicles

Inheritance Tax planning

The take from Inheritance Tax has been steadily rising in recent years and planning to lessen your exposure is becoming more and more important. The current environment where asset values may have reduced provides an excellent opportunity for planning, or it might just be that you now have some time to give this some serious consideration. We have developed a straightforward questionnaire, based on which we can then offer a fixed fee consultation to review your IHT exposure and consider planning opportunities available.

Non-domiciled individuals

The Finance Bill 2017, introduced in April 2017, includes fundamental changes to the UK tax treatment of non-domiciled individuals who are resident in the UK, and for those who hold UK residential property through an intermediary. Any new or existing advice must be reviewed to assess the impact of this Bill and avoid any unwelcome tax consequences. As part of the Baker Tilly International network, our team works with our network partners to ensure your UK tax planning is compatible with the legislation in other tax jurisdictions.

Non-resident landlords

UK tax legislation can impact the affairs of landlords who don’t live in the UK.  Our team can advise you on the implications of UK tax legislation and deal with your UK tax reporting obligations. This can include registering you with the Non-Resident Landlord Scheme, submitting annual tax returns for self-assessment and the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED).  We can also advise on the capital gains tax implications for non-residents who sell UK residential property following the introduction of legislation in April 2015.

Trusts and estates

Trusts play an important role in succession and estate planning, enabling the preservation of family wealth for future generations. Our expertise spans every aspect of trust taxation, whether it is on-shore or offshore, and we can guide you through the tax legislation to decide the most suitable trust arrangement for your individual circumstances. Once the trust is established, we can take care of its ongoing compliance and management.
