Our specialties

At Stephen Coleclough, we specialise in offering expert tax planning and controversy services. Our focus is on ensuring tax efficiency for both UK residents and non-residents.

Our tax planning services focus on strategic advice and prevention, ensuring that your documents accurately reflect your business activities. We leverage the benefits offered by UK tax law to help individuals and businesses reduce their tax liabilities effectively. Key areas include:

  • UK Leavers and Arrivers: Specialised tax planning for individuals moving in and out of the UK.
  • Inheritance Tax (IHT) Planning: Strategies for UK domiciled persons and non-UK resident trusts.
  • Tax Efficiency: Structuring income and profits to minimise double taxation and enhance tax efficiency.
  • Document Review: Ensuring your documents stand up to scrutiny and accurately reflect transactions.

In disputes with HMRC, our approach is grounded in practicality and evidence. We emphasise understanding the law and leveraging evidence to achieve favourable outcomes. Our services in this area include:

  • Dispute Resolution: Expert review and strategic advice for resolving tax disputes.
  • Tax Issue Resolution: Addressing both domestic and international tax issues relevant to the primary dispute.
  • Litigation Proceeds: Determining tax liability on litigation proceeds and calculating post-tax losses.

For clients owning UK property through non-UK entities, we assist with compliance under the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022. Our services include:

  • OE ID Acquisition: Obtaining the necessary Overseas Entity Identification (OE ID) for transactions involving UK land.
  • Verification Process: Verifying ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs) and ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.

We provide support in cases where authorities investigate the legitimacy of wealth, especially inherited wealth in a multi-jurisdictional context. Our services include:

  • Evidence Compilation: Gathering and organising evidence to support the legitimacy of your wealth.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Advising on obligations and powers of authorities in such cases.

What We Don’t Do

While we offer a wide range of expert services, there are specific areas we do not cover:

  • Tax Return or Compliance Services: We can review returns before submission but do not prepare them.
  • Sale of Financial Products: We do not sell financial products or provide regulated financial advice.
  • Document Drafting: We review but do not draft documents, except to suggest appropriate wording.
  • Litigation Services: We do not conduct negotiations with HMRC’s fraud or debt collection departments, but we provide expert evidence and support.
  • Accounting or Bookkeeping: These services are outside our scope, though we collaborate with accounting firms to enhance client outcomes.
