Specialist Tax Advice

We provide advice in relation to specific client situations, including recommendations on how tax can be minimised.  Stephen Gilbey, Partner at Watkins, Stewart & Ross, Solicitors has said of our services to his firm of this type:-

‘As a busy general practice we find it enormously useful to have access to an authoritative source of private client taxation expertise. McKie & Co’s advice is always clear, practical and relevant as well as being impressively technically exact. Our clients appreciate our ability to draw on cost effective, specialist advice of the highest standard.’

Complex technical matters can rarely be determined with absolute certainty.  We consider that all tax advice needs to take account of the financial consequences of alternative outcomes, the cost and inconvenience of becoming involved in protracted enquiries and disputes with HMRC and in litigation. 

Our attitude to taxation planning is practical. Tax planning must stand up to rigorous technical scrutiny including a proper evaluation of its risks and to full, open and honest disclosure to HMRC. We supply that scrutiny based on long experience and dispassionate objectivity.
