Why do high net worth individuals need accounting services?

Accounting for high-net-worth individuals requires specialist, attentive, personalised, and committed service due to the amount of money involved and the care that needs to be taken to manage it.

The key advantages that many clients report from receiving professional tax advice from an accountancy firm include being kept up to date with any legislation changes and guidance on how to be more tax efficient. Not only can an experienced accounting specialist for high-net-worth individuals help you stay compliant but they can also save you valuable time and money in the long term. Having complete peace of mind that your accounting is in good hands will allow you to focus on what you do best.  

How can our accounting services help you?

Jan McDermott Chartered Accountants have extensive industry experience and understand the complexities involved in accounting and tax when dealing with large amounts of money and a high net worth. If you have assets that are worth more than £1 million or have a six-figure annual income, you will benefit from the advice and services of a tax accountant. Read on to see the various accounting services for high-net-worth individuals below. 

Capital gains tax

As a high net worth individual, you are likely to pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT) during your lifetime. This applies to gains you make on selling assets. There is an annual tax-free allowance which currently covers the first £6000 of your capital gains. Any excess is taxed at a rate of between 10%-28%, depending on your total income in the tax year, and the type of asset being disposed.

Income tax

The amount of income tax you will pay as a high-net-worth individual depends on how much of your income falls within each tax band yearly. If your taxable income is in excess of £100,000 of your personal allowance is reduced by £1 for every £2 over this limit.
