BEING PROACTIVE WITH TAX
Please be aware that, due to the pressure of work, we cannot guarantee to take on every new client.
Would you prefer an accountant who can challenge tax law and win ?
WE HAVE - SEVERAL TIMES.
We have fought and won some significant tax appeals for small businesses.
Sometimes this can involve a direct challenge to existing law.
In one very high-profile case, when we were able to win a tax appeal
for the owner of a small business, this actually changed UK tax law.
There did not appear to be any accountant in Lincoln who could do anything
to help the distressed business owner (a disabled lady) at the time.
She had used an accountant in Lincoln who lost her original tax appeal
and then they just left her to the mercy of the tax authorities.
The tax authorities wanted to seize her house and throw her on the street,
and the Lincoln Echo featured her story on their front page.
This was actually a fantastic PR opportunity for any accountant in Lincoln
to leap up and defend the disabled business owner.
But no other accountants in Lincoln came forward to assist.
Eventually, we were able to win a tax appeal for the business owner,
allowing us to bring in new evidence, to win a second tax appeal.
We won both tax appeals by successfully challenging the existing tax law.
This changed tax law for any disabled person who owns a small business.
How many accountants in Lincoln have achieved anything like that?
