Tax Return Services

Helping you to file your Self-Assessment Tax Return on time and avoid penalties.

We set up as tax return accountants for small businesses in 1985 and have helped clients from a wide range of backgrounds file their self assessment tax returns on time every year. Our service is prompt and easy to understand, and we’re happy to discuss what you need over the phone/email or at our offices.

You must submit a Self-Assessment Tax Return if any of the following apply to you:

  • You are a Company Director
  • You are a Sole Trader (Self-Employed)
  • You or your partner receive or have income above £50,000 and receive Child Benefit
  • You receive foreign income that is liable to UK Tax
  • You are a recipient of investment income over £10,000
  • Your annual income exceeds £100,000
  • You are in receipt of rental income
  • You have to pay Capital Gains Tax

We will discuss your business with you and then provide you with a simple form to complete and we will also provide you with any tax return help you might need.

The Challenge

We were a new publishing business struggling to keep our records in spreadsheet form. We needed a system that was easier to manage that could quickly provide us with the information we needed.  

The Solution

AMS helped us decide on the right cloud accounting software for us. They helped us implement it and each quarter they review the system to ensure our records are correct and useful to us.

The Outcome

We now have an easier-to-use system and with closer support from AMS we can rely on the reports produced by the software to see how the business is performing – pretty much at any time we want to.


We work with Small Businesses and Contractors who expect us to give good advice and help them save tax. Our library of 80+ short videos was produced in-house by us to help with all aspects of being in business and we are often praised for their simplicity on complicated matters.

We feel it’s important that we and our clients keep abreast of changes to tax law and advances in technology so we provide solid tax advice and help with bookkeeping. This includes support for people who are making the move to cloud accounting software.

We are very happy to meet you to discuss your business or even your idea for a business. We will advise you on the most tax efficient structure if you are setting up and we can review your business if you are already trading.
