“STAX has successfully advised many of our clients on capital allowances. Their work has not only had positive financial implication on our business but has also added real value to our client relationships. I have no hesitation in recommending STax to all our clients.”Paul Wade

“Tax as most people know is a complex area, Andrew Stanley of STAX has the in-depth knowledge to simplify it. He is straightforward and able to apply his expertise to real life business problems with the aim of tax saving. Over the past few years I always found STAX to be responsive, approachable and professional.”Mr Dave Hartley
“STAX personnel are easy to deal with; always available on the telephone to offer sound advice, promptly resulting in us establishing a long-term relationship which has been quite beneficial to my business and to STAX. STAX overcame problems for me that other tax experts were unable to resolve resulting in my business making three (100%) successful claims for “pooled capital allowance”. STAX worked closely with my solicitors to ensure that the Purchase Contract for a new business acquisition was completed in a manner that allowed for tax efficiency savings. I have a lot of other positive comments to make but I understand that a testimonial has to be short!”Mr Robin Roopun
“We instructed STAX to review our main surgery in Hove at the end of 2012. We received an enquiry from HRMC and the District Valuer. I was impressed by how STAX took ownership of the negotiations and brought them to a swift close. Overall we successfully claimed just under 40% of our expenditure in allowances. This gave us a massive and very welcome reduction in our tax bill. We have since instructed STAX to look at allowances on the rest of our branches along with several other related tax matters.”Dr Bruno Silva
“Both us and our clients are very happy with the service and results of STAX’s work.”Dominic de Lord FCCA
“I have referred a number of my clients as well as some of my contacts to them so that their capital allowances claims for their buildings are calculated. My clients have been impressed with the high level of professionalism & expertise shown by STAX when carrying out their work.
Wherever I encounter clients with property interests I always ensure that they are aware of STAX & the services they offer. The most important thing is that their work reduces the amount of tax my clients pay in a way that doesn’t involve the use of a risky Tax Avoidance Scheme & is made with full disclosure of their calculations to HMRC.”Andrew McKenzie-Smart ACA CTA
“STAX has worked with us on many property recovery and restructuring scenarios and examined the Capital Allowances case providing useful additional input in each case. Andrew and his team have always taken the time to explain their work with allowances and its implication in terms that non tax people can follow. I am pleased to recommend them.”Stephen Ray
