Self Assessment

Whether you are an individual, freelancer or sole trader, Self Assessment can be time consuming for busy individuals and without expertise can be a confusing process.

Many taxpayers are penalised by HMRC each year for :

  • Missed deadlines
  • Incorrect returns
  • Not retaining/providing appropriate records

We will ensure that you are not one of those many.

We are here to spare you the worry and free up your valuable time by acting as your advisor and agent in all matters relating to Self Assessment.

Our comprehensive Individual Self Assessment service is tailored to you and will include:

  • Calculating your tax liability
  • Completing and filing your tax return on your behalf
  • Advising you when various payments are due and how much to pay
  • Advising on appropriate record retention
  • Introducing you to any relevant tax saving ideas
Parity Accounting

Corporation Tax

Parity Accounting will act as your agent with HMRC, file your returns on your behalf and deal with any claims to be made or queries raised by HMRC.

When drawing up your final accounts we will be keeping an eye on any tax opportunities or implications arising that will need to be brought to your attention.  By developing an on-going understanding of your business, your future plans and your individual circumstances we are able to review the tax affairs of the company alongside the preparation of the final accounts and the tax return.  We will ensure that you make the most of any allowable reliefs, tax losses and deferment opportunities and thereby minimise your corporation tax liabilities.

After consideration of any potential tax saving opportunities we will submit your return to HMRC on your behalf and advise you of your liability.

Parity Accounting


The UK VAT regime is complex and adds further to the administrative burden on VAT registered businesses.  Different VAT schemes can appear confusing and the preparation and submission of VAT returns can be time- consuming.  Mistakes made can be costly in terms of unexpected VAT liabilities and fines.  Parity Accounting can advise, assist or take on completely your VAT affairs to ensure that you are on the right scheme, all deadlines are met, returns correctly submitted and payments made in time.

Parity Accounting

Company Secretarial

The Companies Act requires companies to file various documents within strict time limits. Not only is this a considerable administrative burden, failure to comply can result in potentially severe penalties for directors. Parity can relieve you of both the burden and the worry by helping with your Company Secretarial duties.

Our service includes providing you with a registered office address, maintaining statutory registers and preparing and filing Companies House forms.

Parity Accounting

Bookkeeping and Accounting

This essential side of running a business is often side-lined by business owners who understandably want to focus on the business itself.   Parity Accounting can take this on for you and make sure your records are kept up to date and compliant with statutory regulations.  Up to date records will in turn help you plan better for the business.
