Learn About The REAL Accounting


Capital Gains Tax is paid when a company makes a profit or sells part of, or all of, a business asset. There are several assets on which a company must pay Capital Gains Tax. These include buildings and land, fittings and fixtures, machinery and plant, Shares and Stocks, the business’s reputation – Goodwill, registered trademarks. Businesses are required to work out their gain to determine whether they are required to pay Capital Gains Tax. Sole traders and people in a business partner who are self-employed must pay Capital Gains Tax. In contrast, some other organisations, such as limited companies, pay Corporation Tax instead of profits from the sale of their assets. No Capital Gains Tax is paid on any gift to a spouse, civil partner or charity. With expert guidance from our skilled tax accountant, you can be sure that your company stays within the law when it comes to reporting and paying tax on your gain.

Normal accounting is focused on reporting profit or loss of the business and will be governed by GAAP. But Tax accounting is majorly focused on the impact of transactions on tax liability.

Every business including sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and large business will plan for their taxes and make amendments to financial statements and include any past or future tax liabilities through tax accounting entries.

Tax accounting enables and empowers business to comply with tax law and prepare for any future tax liability. Tax Accounting is part of accounting which will be governed by the laws of taxes in that jurisdiction.

Apart from tax compliance, tax accounting will help you generate cash flow in real terms. Any future tax liability will be added to cash flow of business in order to save money for future tax payments.

HMRC have published guidance to record income and expenditure on cash basis or accrual basis. They will accept any tax planning which is part of final accounts and is not tax avoidance.

No tax accountant is not more expensive then a normal accountant. We have specialist knowledge and experience to minimise your tax bills.

There is not much difference in the costs. Most of tax accountants will charge for advice and tax planning. Whereas accounting will be the same for every business. The difference is to include tax planning in accounts. 

Your accountant may have included some normal tax provisions. If not you may be able to make adjustments in your current financial year. If you are loosing any tax reliefs, you may need to amend accounts and resubmit to HMRC and companies house.
