Specialist Sectors

We have also developed a number of industry specialisms over the years, which enable us to provide finely tuned, highly focused services in these sectors.

Cross border/Irish Tax

We advise individuals who live in Northern Ireland and work in the Republic of Ireland and vice versa. We also deal with businesses and companies that operate in both jurisdictions in relation to permanent establishments and double tax relief.

R&D and Patent Box

We have been submitting research and development (R&D) claims since the scheme was introduced in 2000 for a variety of different sized companies coming from a range of sectors including the construction, pharmaceutical and aerospace industries. R&D relief is available to Companies who face uncertainty while trying to make a technological or scientific advance. We guide our clients through the R&D claim to ensure that the tax relief is maximised and that the claim is approved by HMRC as quickly as possible.

The Patent Box is available to companies who derive income from Patents by reducing their effective tax rate. We advise clients on the best business structure for their needs and prepare claims on their behalf to minimise their Corporation tax liabilities.

Tax Investigations

Tax and VAT enquiries can be time consuming and costly. We deal with HM Revenue & Customs on behalf of our clients to bring a satisfactory conclusion to enquiries and to minimise any interest and penalties that may arise.

Agricultural and rural businesses

The agri-food sector is of vital importance to the Northern Ireland economy. For a long period it has been one of the primary drivers of our economy providing many jobs and contributing to the sustainability of the rural sector. The agricultural and rural industry encompasses a wide range of businesses from a small farm to a large diversified estate. We have worked with agricultural businesses and specialised in this industry for many years.

UK farming will not only continue to face radical change in the future due to CAP reform but also in the need to meet customer requirements on price and quality.
