Forensic Accounting & Litigation Support

Forensic accounting is about looking at financial records and working out what is verifiably true or false with regard to assets and money. Where are they? And how can they be recovered?

There’s a good chance that at some point in your business or personal life you’ll find yourself involved in a legal dispute over money. It could be any of the following:

  • Personal injury claim
  • Contractual dispute
  • Insurance claim
  • Contested business loss
  • Matrimonial dispute
  • Professional negligence claim
  • Tax enquiry
  • Royalty or copyright dispute
  • Fraud investigation

In cases like these, we can work with your lawyer to study and interpret the facts of the case with a particular focus on the numbers. Often, our involvement at an early stage can result in the matter being settled out of court – less time-consuming and painful all round.

If there is a need to pursue litigation, we can:

  • Provide the necessary information and documentation to support your case
  • Produce valuations in support of a claim
  • Act as an expert witness in court

These services can considerably strengthen your case and cut your litigation costs.

> Personal tax planning

The tax regime is getting more complex with more emphasis on taxpayers' individual responsibility. Proper planning can reduce your tax liabilities and help manage your money.

> Self assessment

They call it ‘self-assessment’ but many taxpayers struggle to understand the complex tax return process and so risk filing late, paying too much tax, or paying too little. Let us handle this for you and get it right.

> Estate planning

Few of us like to think about dying but, equally, few of us could live with the thought that we’ve failed to make adequate provision for the family and friends who survive us. That’s why planning matters.

> Retirement strategies

Everyone hopes to maintain the same standard of living in retirement as they enjoy while working, but to achieve that you need to start planning sooner rather than later.

> Trusts and executorships

Trusts are a relatively easy and tax efficient way to set aside assets for future beneficiaries, outside of the inheritance tax net that can so easily reduce the amount passed on.

> Forensic accounting and litigation support

At some point you will find yourself involved in a legal dispute over money. We can help establish the facts and advise during proceedings.

> Wealth management

We offer a wide range of financial planning advice covering investments, ISAs, pensions, retirement planning and strategic tax planning.

> VAT

Value added tax (VAT) is one of the most complex and onerous tax regimes imposed on business – so complex that many businesses inadvertently overpay or underpay.
