As a way of giving back to the community, Taxfile recently hosted a free ‘Tax Clinic’ at the Clapham Junction branch of Barclays Bank. Here, customers could informally chat with the Taxfile team about their tax affairs and raise any queries or concerns that they might have about tax, all in total confidence. Many customers seized the opportunity at the January event. They were a mixture of pre-arranged appointments and those simply visiting the branch. All Taxfile’s advice at Barclays Bank on the day was free of charge.
This first Tax Clinic was a roaring success and our advice proved to be very popular with the local community. While the advice on the day was free of charge, some customers asked Taxfile to extend their help into the future, on a more regular, commercial basis. This would typically be for the type of accountancy services that Taxfile offers from its offices in Tulse Hill, Battersea, Dulwich and Exeter. For example, payroll services, help with auto-enrolment, year end accounts, computations, submission of tax returns and tax refunds, clearing up messy tax situations … and so on. Such ongoing services are always quoted up front, so that customers know exactly what to expect going forwards. Most times, our accountancy services are offered for a fixed fee, which keeps things nice and simple.
Barclays Bank often recommends Taxfile to their local customers for tax and accounting consultations. Indeed, we work very closely with them as their preferred partner for local businesses here in the Clapham Junction and Battersea area. We’re both keen to be active in the local community and working together has therefore been a natural partnership. Barclays is also on a mission to personalise their offerings to customers and to add more value, so bringing in Taxfile to help with their customers’ tax affairs has made perfect sense.
Our Next Free Tax Clinic — a Date for your Diary!
Our next Tax Clinic will be on 4th March 2020. This will also be at the Clapham Junction branch of Barclays Bank (7-11 St John’s Hill, SW11 1T), although we are also discussing similar opportunities with other branches. We are hoping to do at least one Tax Clinic each month going forwards, so watch this space!
