ACCOUNTING IN YOUR LANGUAGE

ABOUT US

Established in 2005 by Andy Eggleston, EWP provides accountancy management services to UK and international business.

Our partnership with SAREG, a French accountancy practice with five offices in the French Alps, places us in a unique position, and is key to the services that we provide. As a partner in EWP and SAREG, Andy Eggleston retains an overview of the working practices and policies of both firms.

This is especially beneficial to our clients who have both UK and French accounting legislations to adhere to and who therefore benefit from both our UK and French knowledge and the synergy between them.

Offices in both the UK and France offer our clients flexibility, many of whom have operations in UK,  France and Switzerland. Consequently, EWP are dynamically placed to react quickly to constantly changing situations.

For an initial consultation, please call us on +44 (0) 845 508 5010 or send us a message and one of our friendly team members will be in touch within 24 hours.

TAXATION

Tax can be confusing and time consuming. EWP can help your business with Personal Tax, Corporation Tax and Sole Trader Tax.

Read more

Personal Tax

Self-assessment can be a confusing and time consuming task. It can also lead to penalties and unnecessary stress where returns are incorrect, late and not supported with appropriate records.

At EWP we can:

  • Calculate your tax liability
  • Complete and file your return
  • Liaise with any 3rd parties to obtain relevant data for your return
  • Present to you any tax saving ideas where applicable
  • Represent you if any investigation does arise
  • Advise how much you need to pay and when
  • Advise what records you are obliged to keep by law

Corporation Tax

Tax compliance is important and exacting. The Corporation Tax rate you pay depends on how much profit your company makes and you may be able to get deductions or claim tax credits on your Corporation Tax, known as reliefs. At EWP, our current knowledge of such reliefs enables quick and accurate calculations, with timely Corporation Tax submissions to avoid late payment fines. We will also review your tax return annually and advise where we think savings can be made.

Sole Traders and Tax

Sole traders, whilst having less legislative regulations to adhere to, are still responsible for their business and must register with HMRC. Sole traders are required to keep records of all business transactions, file a self-assessment each year, pay income tax on profits and make National Insurance contributions. Furthermore, sole traders are required to register for VAT if the turnover reaches the VAT threshold. EWP can assist with your tax computations and submission of your tax assessments within the statutory deadlines.
