We see Simpson Wood as a proactive partner that often looks for ways to improve our financial position by providing advice on tax planning opportunities.

The people at Simpson Wood take time and care to understand our needs and to provide advice in a professional way – and on a level which is easily understood. I would have no hesitation recommending this company to anyone looking for professional advice across a broad range of financial matters.

Objective

Easilift Loading Systems, part of the international Loading Systems group of companies, has been working with Simpson Wood for more than 30 years. The company, based in Kirkburton, Huddersfield, requires financial advisors with a thorough understanding of group reporting procedures, and trusts our expertise in this area.

 

Our Solution

Besides carrying out Easilift’s annual audit and preparing its statutory accounts, Simpson Wood has provided first-class advice on matters such as Corporation Tax Compliance and Corporation Tax Planning, to help the company to minimise its tax liabilities.

Simpson Wood handles Easilift’s annual Corporation Tax returns and often provides advice on claiming tax relief for capital and other expenditure. Guidance and assistance has also been offered on tax-efficient remuneration strategies and the purchase and disposal of shares in the company.

 

Outcome

In addition to taking care of routine financial matters, Simpson Wood’s advice has provided the momentum for Easilift to continue investing and innovating. The company recently demonstrated its commitment to quality management by becoming ISO90001-accredited. Directors relied on Simpson Wood through the implementation stage to recommend improvements to accounting systems and refine financial processes.
