Specialist services
and strategic planning

The support we can offer you goes beyond the tactical day to day management of your finances. Glenton Smith can provide you with a flexible finance director to help with strategic decisions. You’ll reap all the benefits of a full-time finance director at a fraction of the cost.

You can access the following specialist and strategic services:

  • Tax planning
  • Planning and forecasting
  • Business structure and start up advice
  • Linking business and family finance
  • Employee remuneration and management
  • A network of professional service providers.


Tax planning: Are you paying too much tax? Our specialist tax advisers will make sure you only pay what the tax man is legally entitled to and no more. Through careful tax planning and regular reviews, we can protect your business’s and family’s wealth.

Business planning: Your Glenton Smith finance director can help you develop practical business plans. Together, we can set a clear direction for your business with specific, measurable and achievable goals.

Business structure: We can also advise you about the most effective structure for your business, be that operating as a sole trader, partnership, company or LLP. This is crucial for start-ups, but should also be reviewed by more mature businesses as your own and regulatory requirements change.

Business and family finance: We’re aware that for owner-managers particularly, business and personal finances are inextricably linked. And by considering both, we can make your finances as tax efficient as possible.

Employee remuneration: Your staff are likely to be the most valuable and costly aspect of your business. But are you paying them tax efficiently? We can save you money by recommending tax efficient remuneration packages. And if you need more specific input, we can also put you in touch with local HR specialists.

Professional network: Would your business benefit from other professional services such as legal, marketing or IT? If so, we can introduce you to a network of like-minded experts who can help move your business forward.


’Glenton Smith alerted me to £1,200 of tax credits I had no idea I was entitled to and explained how to claim them.’

Karen Ambrose, McTimoney Chiropractor


‘Glenton Smith spotted that I was due a tax refund of over £1,500 which the tax man had been sitting on for years. It seemed to me that HMRC made it as difficult as possible to get the money back, but Glenton Smith dealt with it with persistence and good humour.’
