Retirement & Estate Planning

Estate planning is about deciding on the best way to leave your estate to those you love after you die.

CRS will review your estate, including personal and business assets. Then we will highlight opportunities to minimise tax and help you to make the best use of the gifts and exemptions allowed under inheritance tax rules.

We can make sure your money ends up with the people you want and for the reasons you choose.


Our VAT specialists have an in-depth knowledge of all aspects relating to VAT.

CRS have helped a wide range of businesses solve their VAT questions and submit their VAT returns properly. Many businesses operate in a number of sectors and are subject to complex VAT rules and procedures. This can require the skills and experience of an expert to navigate effectively.

Efficient VAT planning can minimise your tax liabilities and maximise cash flow, by ensuring that all the appropriate VAT reliefs are claimed.


Trusts are relatively straight forward to set up and operate.

They can be used in inheritance tax planning and asset protection. We can advise, set up and offer accounting and taxation services for trusts, including acting as Trustee.

HMRC Enquiries

An HMRC tax investigation can be stressful for any business.

HMRC has the right to check your affairs at any point to make sure you’re paying the right amount of tax. If your business is selected, you’ll receive an official HMRC investigation letter or phone call.

With HMRC investigations on the rise, we can be with you every step of the way. Our expertise in this area means that you don’t have to worry, you can be rest assured that our expert and experienced team are working to support you.

Professional Fee Protection

Professional Fee Protection is an optional scheme to cover accountancy fees for tax enquiries and disputes.

Profession Fee Protection is an insurance policy that covers the accountancy costs of HMRC enquiries and compliance visits. We offer this cover to all clients.

“We moved our accounting requirements to Chris Smith some years ago. He came highly recommended. We were very pleased as Chris took time to understand our business. So when Chris decided to set up CRS Accountancy in 2020 we had no hesitation in transferring from his previous firm and supporting him in his new venture. We feel we are in safe hands.”
David Billingham, Director - Equilibrium Finance

“Chris has been my accountant since I established my business in 2005 and I continue to be impressed with his proactive approach and knowledge. He is down-to-earth but still very professional and explains things in a manner to ensure that I understand them, especially when it comes to matters of tax. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris and CRS Accountancy.”
