Private Client Taxation

It’s often said that death and taxes are the two unavoidable facts of life. But with proper planning and the right advice, your taxation arrangements can at least be made as simple and inexpensive as possible.

Tax is a complex and often confusing subject, and taxation issues can arise in a number of business areas. That means tax planning should be considered central to any legal, commercial or accountancy advice.

GMAK recognises that each person and their business have unique objectives. An integrated service is therefore the best way of ensuring that tax implications are fully considered before any financial steps are taken.

Our comprehensive private client tax service covers the following areas:

  • Completion of self assessment tax returns
  • Advisement of payments as they fall due
  • Ensuring deadlines are met, so that penalties and interest are avoided

In addition, personal advice covers areas like:

  • Income Tax
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Inheritance Tax
  • Retirement
  • Trusts
  • The home (Principal Private Residence)

We aim to provide our clients with an up-front estimate of the cost of these services.



Including Loans, Mortgages, Hire Purchase, Finance Leases and more.

Our firm offers no-nonsense advice on all kinds of finance options, assisting you in finding the most appropriate option for your needs. For instance, we recently assisted a client with recommendations for a £1m facility, combining a repayment term loan with finance leasing for key equipment.
