Tax support services for the Legal sector

As tax and accountancy professionals, we understand that professional firms want access to the best possible advice, to help them provide the best possible service to their clients.

At Haslers, our tax specialists work with a number of legal sector firms, delivering tax advice and expertise designed to help them add value to their services, build stronger relations with their clients and sharpen their competitive edge.

When we work with professional firms, we’ll identify problems and provide bespoke solutions, delivering the right advice at the right time to ensure tax compliance and maximise cost-efficiency.

By bringing us on board at an early stage, legal firms can help clients to avoid potential pitfalls and deliver significant savings.

At the same time, we are ideally placed to advise legal practices directly on any tax issues affecting their own firms, such as VAT, transaction planning or the tax implications of a merger, acquisition
or business sale.

We are only interested in assisting other advisors to help their clients, so our legal firm clients can bring us on board in complete confidence that their client relationships are secure and there are no conflicts of interest.
