Who EY TaxChat™ can help

  • Self-employed

    If you are self-employed (and receive income over £1,000 during the tax year), you are required by HMRC to complete a tax return.

    EY tax professionals will review your income and expenses and claim relief on all expenses that are tax deductible through your tax return, for example:

    • Capital allowances
    • Allowable trading expenses e.g., travel and subsistence, advertising, indemnity insurance
    • Annual investment allowance

    EY professionals will also calculate any Class 2 or Class 4 National Insurance due to HMRC based on your income for the year.

  • Landlords

    If you receive rental income (over £2,500), you are required by HMRC to complete a tax return. This includes rental income that is received from property let in the UK or overseas.

    EY tax professionals prepare tax returns for landlords who let UK or overseas:

    • Residential property
    • Furnished holiday lets
    • Commercial property

    EY tax professionals will claim all available tax reliefs and allowances appropriate for your circumstances, including:

    • Allowable expenses
    • Property allowance (if your expenses are under £1,000)

    Rent-a-room relief (if you let a room in your home)

    If you receive significant savings and investment income e.g., interest and/or dividends, then HMRC may require you to complete a tax return.

    • Tax-free starting rate for savings

  • Sold assets (e.g., shares, property)

    Some common examples of chargeable assets are:

    • Stocks and shares
    • Land and property
    • Antiques, paintings, jewellery

    EY tax professionals will also claim all available tax reliefs and allowances appropriate for your circumstances and will keep an ongoing record of any capital losses available to carry forward.

  • Settlor or beneficiaries of a trust

    If you are a settlor or beneficiary of a trust, EY tax professionals will report any taxable trust income and claim the appropriate credit for any tax paid.
