Our acquisition of Accountax Consulting, in 2008, secured our prominence as expert advisers in employment status matters.

Accountax was established in 1999 as a specialist tax consultancy to assist accountants and businesses with self-employed status, CIS and IR35. They were the first tax advisers to win IR35 at the Special Commissioners (Lime IT v Justin) and have had unrivalled success at the Tax Tribunal on IR35, Status and CIS.   

The team is managed and staffed by ex-HMRC, legal and tax professionals who have real world experience of the issues our clients face in practice. The offering is straight-talking, no-nonsense advice and representation.

Accountax has been at the forefront of Umbrella company advice and services for many years, both prior to and following the introduction of the Managed Service Company (MSC) legislation.

Accountax offers a variety of additional consultancy, support on a wide variety of tax issues and contentious tax enquiries. The team has defended all manner of clients on various tax matters from doctors, pilots, fruit pickers, car valeters, chicken catchers and even nuns!

The team also provides reassurance to our clients with our standard and bespoke retainer packages and insurance packages for agencies and contractors looking for the ultimate peace of mind in respect of self-employed engagements.
