Play Less. Less Stress.

Working through and submitting your tax return can be complicated and needlessly stressful. Let the DIA handle your returns for you – saving you time, saving you hassle and saving your sanity.

Whether you are a PDI, a recently qualified ADI or an Instructor with many years of experience, dealing with HMRC can be stressful.  A piece of paper drops through the door that is often full of jargon; the tax demanded is higher than you expected; HMRC query some of your expenses…. etc etc these are problems that you could just do without.  What is more, tax legislation is constantly changing.

All that stress can be taken away with our fixed fee tax service.  Our highly qualified tax professionals get to know your affairs in great detail.  Our telephone helpline, which is available throughout the year, is staffed exclusively by the same people who work on your accounts and your tax return and it is open between 9.00am to 5.00pm (Monday to Friday) to answer any queries on your book-keeping or tax affairs.
