Jon Dickinson-Senior Partner of Proactive Accounting-A new Chartered Accountancy Practice based in Belfast has promised that tax planning will be a core service provided to Clients from start up. “Too many Accountancy Practices have shied away from legitimate ways of saving tax due to the aggressive stance taken by HMRC”. We will adhere to the old Westminster tax case of 1936 that-


“Every man is entitled, if he can, to order his affairs so as that the tax attaching under the appropriate Acts is less than it otherwise would be. If he succeeds in ordering them so as to secure this result, then, however unappreciative the Commissioners of Inland Revenue or his fellow taxpayers may be of his ingenuity, he cannot be compelled to pay an increased tax”.


Tax laws are open to everyone-It is pure laziness for Advisers not to help their Clients minimise their liabilities. After all the majority already act as unpaid collectors of VAT, NIC and PAYE. If it were not for wealth creators there would be no profits generated to levy tax!
