Williams Giles’s work with foster carers
‘We understand the challenges faced by foster carers when it comes to tax. Some foster carers submit their own tax returns online, but many foster carers come to us.
‘We offer a comprehensive service, not only do we complete and file your self-assessment tax return, we will also remind you about upcoming deadlines, as well as talking to HMRC on your behalf. We provide the reassurance that your tax return will be accurate and on time.
‘We will also ensure that you are paying the minimum amount of tax possible - details such as the available National Insurance exemptions and credits can be overlooked and you can end up paying more tax than you should.
‘Your dedicated adviser will be at the end of the phone to answer any questions you may have.’
