Corporate Tax


VAT Return Calculation

If you are struggling to understand your VAT return or you’re not sure whether you should be VAT registered, there’s no need to worry, our friendly team of professionals can provide you with the guidance and advice you need.

If your business is likely to turn over more than £82,000 in a year you are required, by HMRC, to register for VAT and to therefore file a VAT return to HMRC. You will usually need to submit a VAT return every 3 months, this is known as your ‘accounting period’. A VAT return records information such as your total sales and purchases, the amount of VAT you owe and the amount of VAT you can reclaim.

As part of our VAT Return Calculation solution we will review your books to ensure there are no inaccuracies before completing and submitting your VAT return to HMRC. We will also evaluate whether you can register for the Flat Rate Scheme. Each customer is provided with a designated accountant who can be contacted via email, telephone or LiveChat on our website.

Capital Gains Tax

Are you intending to sell a personal possession, property or business asset? If so, Black Diamond Capital Gains services will provide the advice and support you need throughout the process.

Capital Gains Tax is the tax on the profit you have made on the item you are selling, for example, if you bought a house for £80,000 and sold it for £100,000 you would pay Capital Gains Tax on the £20,000 profit. However, you only need to pay this tax if your profit is above the annual tax-free allowance, currently at £11,100.

You pay Capital Gains Tax when you dispose of:

  • Personal possessions worth £6,000 or more
  • A property that isn’t your main home
  • Your main home if you’ve let it out, used it for business or if it’s very large
  • Shares that aren’t in a NISA, ISA or PEP
  • Business assets

We understand this can be a complicated concept to get your head around. Therefore Black Diamond’s Capital Gains Tax services can give you advice on the appropriate reliefs, exemptions and allowances that are available to you. Our team of accountants will advise on a variety of options including calculating your potential Capital Gains Tax payable on disposal, advising on the potential Capital Gains Tax payable on a gift and advising on the availability of Entrepreneurs Relief. All you need to do is provide the information we require and the rest will be dealt with for you, no stress and no hassle.
