Private Clients

Private Clients

At Hotsun and Co. we are able to offer a wide range of services to our private clients.

Self Assessment

Most taxpayers steel themselves for the process of completing their Self Assessment tax return. These documents are complex, lengthy and represent a daunting task in the face of constantly changing legislation. Rather unsurprisingly people struggle to complete them correctly and the fear of 'getting it wrong' can cause a kind of functional paralysis that leads to penalties.

This is where we come in. We can save you considerable time, money and distress by handling your self assessment for you. We will calculate your liability and complete your return offering advice if appropriate.

We can also act as your agent, dealing with the Inland Revenue on your behalf and, should you be subject to a self assessment enquiry, we will act for you at any meetings.

Not only is taxation an individual responsibility but it is also a personal necessity to get it right.

Not only can Hotsun and Co help you to optimise your tax position, we can also ensure you meet all compliance criteria.
