Chartered Accountants & Chartered Tax Advisers
Robertson Craig is a firm of Chartered Accountants and Chartered Tax Advisers. For over 30 years, we have sought to build a reputation as a trusted firm of specialist tax and business advisers, providing our services to entrepreneurs, business-owning families and high-net worth individuals.
In a world in which tax is becoming ever more complex, it is important to obtain the best advice available.
We specialise in providing corporate and personal tax planning advice, together with an annual tax compliance service. Our clients are typically privately-owned businesses and their owners, including high net worth individuals. We work in conjunction with our clients to deliver tax solutions that work for them and their business. We take pride in being approachable but plain-speaking and seek to explain complex tax issues and solutions without the technical jargon.
We also work closely with accountants, lawyers and other professional advisers, providing specialist tax advice to their complex clients and situations.
Our practice covers the full range of UK taxes.
Our approach seeks to deliver practical solutions that take account of existing business and financing structures. Through the relationships that we have built with our clients our role has in many cases grown to be one of business adviser as well as tax adviser, providing input on issues beyond tax including banking and financing.
