Income Tax & National Insurance

I know all the rules regarding taxation of barristers and the reliefs available and preparing for including debtors in your income after 7 years in practice, preparing for retirement etc.

I always advise my clients who seek advice regarding the best way to claim for motor expenses etc. For new clients I offer a free introductory meeting where I will review how best to claim for motor expenses and ensure you are claiming all that is possible but advise against expenses that are not tax deductible.

I will file your Annual Tax Return and handle your HMRC Statements of Account if you wish me too.

Looking ahead, I can forecast future tax payments based on your latest profit forecasts.

When HMRC introduce Quarterly on-line filing of financial information for the self employed from April 2018 I can handle this for any client who needs it.

VAT Returns For Barristers

There are a variety of different VAT Schemes available. I will advise on the best scheme for you.

I will file Quarterly VAT Returns for barrister clients who want a Quarterly service. I produce Quarterly Profit Reports as a standard part of my Quarterly Service.


If you employ your partner or someone else as your assistant I will process all monthly and annual payroll returns.

Financial & Wealth Management

Many barristers are so busy with a demanding job (and trying to relax a bit too! ) that they can often neglect important areas of finance. I know many of the tax pitfalls that can catch the unwary if they want to provide for the future or for their family. If a financial adviser is required I can recommend my own financial adviser for you to consider.
