Tax Planning


The BTO Personal Team have their own dedicated website. To visit the site, click here:



The saying goes that only two things are certain in life: death and taxes.

However, there are a number of measures that any one person can take to reduce their tax liability in any given circumstances. In our experience, it is often a lack of knowledge or understanding of the UK’s complicated tax system which prevents people from using all of the reliefs or exemptions they are eligible for.

Our team would be happy to guide you through the various potential pitfalls and can advise on all aspects of Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax.  We deal also with the completion of tax returns for both individual and trust clients. Our experience and guidance will enable you to achieve your objectives in the most tax efficient way. We also provide advice on succession planning, asset protection and passing on the family business.

Our pragmatic approach enables us to identify areas where you can minimise the tax payable in a realistic and pragmatic way. We believe that it is vital to balance the benefits of tax planning against the real-life needs of you and your family and we will tailor-make solutions to your particular circumstances.
