Self Assessment

Self Assessment is a system that HMRC uses to collect Income and other forms of Tax (such as Capital Gains and National Insurance). Tax is usually deducted automatically from wages and pensions. However certain benefits can be claimed which standard payrolls may not include

The advantage of having your own self assessment calculated is that you can be sure you are claiming for all your allowances etc.

Businesses, and people with other income must report this in a tax return. Failure to do so by the deadline may result in you including a fine and/or needing to pay interest on any tax owed.

We have extensive experience in completing tax returns for a variety of individuals and businesses including those who have multiple sources of complex incomes, have overseas income, have lived out of the UK for some of the tax year, and individuals who have property income.

Our clients say

Gary Wootton

Director, Engage Construction Management Ltd

Having used Lighthouse Accountancy for 12 years, I can honestly say that it is a pleasure to have Neil and his team representing my business. Keeping up to date with current regulations, Neil is always happy to explain in detail how these affect me and my business. Proactive, reliable and flexible. Nothing is a problem.

Colin Barden

Director, Dannic Carpentry Ltd

I have been with Lighthouse Accountancy for over 12 years now both as a Sole Trader and for the last 10 years as a Limited Company within the construction industry. From the first day they have given me exceptional service and advice in dealing with HMRC. They are always available either by phone or email to explain and advise me on my current tax affairs, which to many are complicated and confusing. I would recommend their services without question as accountants to their business affairs.
