UHY Hacker Young | Chartered Accountants

Our drinks accounting and tax services

We have an industry focused team with a thorough understanding of the drinks sector who can provide the following accounting and tax services.

Audit, tax & reporting requirements        

We can advise on accounts preparation, audit, forecasting and planning for exchange rate fluctuations, maximising available tax benefits such as capital allowances on any expenditure on new plant, managing supply chains and industry by-products.

R&D Tax Credits

There is generous relief available from HMRC in relation to research and development tax credits which can be reclaimed for areas such as investments in new recipes or products and process improvements through technology change. In particular small boutique distilleries are often eligible for R&D tax credits which can provide a company with welcome tax relief or cash payments where costs are incurred when creating a new product, for example.

Minimising administration for your drinks business

The burden of administration and compliance often takes up more time than it should. Our dedicated outsourcing teams can help reduce the administrative burden of payroll, VAT and regular compliance and handle all these issues on your behalf.
