To help you succeed with your corporate and international tax requirements, our team focus on three key areas.
Expanding and trading overseas increases tax risk exponentially; whether it’s related to M&A activity, organic business expansion, financing your operations or a cross border supply chain, our team can work with you to understand these risks and manage their global complexity. We work closely with our international network in other jurisdictions to bring you the best of our global network.
We also know the importance of maximising the reliefs available to you, including innovation tax reliefs and capital allowances. We can draw on our extensive expertise in these areas to help you understand the opportunities for your business and ensure you make the best of the reliefs available.
Compliance is the bedrock of a corporate tax function, and our specialist corporation tax compliance team will manage every step of the process with you, ensuring your returns are prepared accurately, efficiently and on time.
Following several significant legislative changes in recent years, particularly around the rules on interest deductions and offsetting losses, good compliance has become progressively harder to achieve, along with confidence that your overall tax position has been optimised.
We work with businesses of all sizes to provide accurate tax returns, manage risk and maximise opportunity. Whether you have one UK corporate tax return to be filed or have a multi-jurisdictional group, we have the technical breadth and depth to support you.
Our approach is always to listen first and, based on feedback from all of the companies we deal with, make things as simple as possible for you. Unlike many firms, we don’t make you do all the hard work; we take your source data and prepare your tax computation from that, leaving you free to focus on your day to day finance activities.

I’m a tax specialist with over 25 years’ experience, both within Big Four firms and in-house, most recently as Head of Tax at RAC. I’ve been with Claritas since May 2018. My background is in corporate tax but during my career I’ve worked across the full range of taxes.
