The two most common reasons new customers give us for choosing us over their existing accountants are returns not being filed on time or taking too long to file, and that they feel they are paying too much tax.


Our specialist tax team can offer support ranging from basic compliance – completing your returns, advising of the amount payable, and checking correspondence from HMRC – through to bespoke tax planning for income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

Working closely with you to identify future tax issues, allows us to plan in advance, so that there are no surprises and you can take appropriate action to minimise or eliminate those taxes.

Client Case Studies


  • We moved to Sibbalds believing that the service and support we receive would be more pro-active than what we had received historically. Since appointing Sibbalds Hari has delivered on what he said could do for us.

    Hari has been instrumental in assisting the business to grow and to maintain a positive cash position in a climate where many businesses are still struggling in both areas.

    Each quarter we sit down with Hari to go through the management accounts that have been prepared by Sibbalds. This service has been important to us as we are able to make strategic decisions on the company and the board are able to make informed executive decisions based on reliable management accounts. The discussions help us to explore where we can be more efficient as a business and consequently, we have seen our profits increase as well as receiving pro-active tax advice in the way the business is structured since using Sibbalds.

    They are always available to answer any queries we have and we do not have to worry about being billed all the time! We value the prompt and helpful advice that Hari and his team provide and we feel Sibbalds is a professional yet friendly and approachable firm of Chartered Accountants – we certainly have no hesitation in recommending Sibbalds to other businesses.

  • We operate a mailing company in Ilkeston, and moved to Sibbalds at the beginning of 2009. David immediately met with us to undertake some pre-year end tax planning, which was something we had never received before and resulted in a corporation tax saving of £15,000.

    David and his team really are pro-active – they are always offering ideas on how we can grow the business and pay less tax. Earlier this year, thanks to some remuneration planning we did with David, we were able to apply for Tax Credits which we had previously not qualified for.

    I would be delighted to recommend Sibbalds to any business owner who wants the support of an accountant who will actively look for ways to help them increase their wealth.

  • We find Sibbalds very responsive and easy to work with. Their work has been to a high standard while meeting very tight deadlines for the Annual Report and EFA returns. I would be happy to recommend them.

  • Dear David,

    You have been our accountant since we started in business 6 years ago. Over these years you have arranged my personal accounts, the company accounts, my partner’s accounts, my employees accounts, the employers payroll & even my family tax credits.

    As your card says you are not just numbers, you have helped and advised me in numerous ways. When ever we have needed some support, we have found you always available ready to help.

    This help has enabled our business to grow into the position we are at today. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the wonderful things you have done for our company and my family. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.
