This course is for people who wish to learn about all the tax breaks and allowances accountants use (or should use) with their clients to reduce their overall tax liabilities in the UK.
There are over 90 different tax ideas and strategies discussed in this course; grouped into appropriate categories. Each tax break or allowance has it's own video so you can easily navigate and refer back to it in future.
The basics of each tax strategy is explained, by me, in person and if you need further explanation or elaboration then I am happy to answer all your questions in the community forum.
All the tax breaks and allowances are correct for the 2015/16 tax year and so apply for all UK tax returns due until 31st January 2017. I shall update the videos as and when new legislation comes into force.
In my 15 year career as a tax accountant, I have worked with an eclectic mix of creative businesses and their owners - from design agencies, brand consultancies and visual effects studios to bespoke jewellers, fashion brands and film-makers; helping them to pay the least amount of tax whilst staying on the right side of the law.
There is a common theme to all the questions that people ask me:
“How can I legally reduce my tax bill?”
“What expenses or allowances should I be claiming?”
“What do accountants do to pay less tax?”
“Why does everyone else seem to pay less tax than I do?!”
“Where is the line drawn between acceptable tax avoidance and illegal tax evasion?”
“Can I take advantage of the elaborate tax schemes that celebrities use?”
“What is the likelihood of HM Revenue & Customs investigating me, and what happens if they do?”
I know the simple stuff that works, the complicated stuff that doesn’t, and I am passionate about helping small business owners keep more of their hard earned cash.
Armed with this determination, I have written books, produced digital courses and ran talks and workshops to keep more money in your pocket and giving no more than your fair share to the tax man.
I am not out to cheat the tax man, and I am not interested in helping people contribute nothing to society. I simply help to level the playing field between big businesses with expensive lawyers and small businesses that really drive the economy.
Explore, experiment and implement these great tax saving ideas in your business and you will notice an immediate reduction in your tax bills.
I really hope this course helps you as much as they have helped both me and the creative businesses I work with every day.Dean Shepherd
