Seafarer's tax advice and tax return submission service

In these days of self-assessment the penalties for getting it wrong, or just plain late, are such that everyone needs a little help in settling their income tax affairs correctly. Even for those who feel that it is a relatively straightforward system find themselves, from time to time, out of their depth when dealing with HMRC. This is never more obvious than when your file has been selected for audit. Not only that, but whilst you are away at sea and unable to deal with these matters, your loved ones at home are called upon to handle these matters for you.

Do not despair, help is at hand in the form of SK Tax Service who will deal with these matters for you. Also, throughout the year you have access to their expertise to assist in ensuring that you receive all the advice required to enable you to qualify for Seafarer's Earnings Deduction. Every member of staff has access to the central database that holds full details of your claim. By reading out the dates of entering and leaving the UK, these can be entered directly into the calculator of your claim and advice given immediately as to whether or not you have qualified, or what further time out of the UK may be necessary to enable you so to do.

The emphasis is on a friendly, personal and bespoke approach as no two situations are the same. Having said that, the service offered is extremely professional and has over the years, been able to claim back literally millions in income tax for our clients. Advice is readily available to all our clients by mail, phone or e-mail so that all important guidance is always there to help you through the tricky parts of qualifying for a 100% claim.

£225 covers the first twelve months and we offer a reduced fee of £215 for the second and subsequent years.

Full Review

Our fee include a full review of your tax affairs and sea service for the last four years.

Reduced catch-up fees

Unlike a lot of other firms we do not charge a full fee for each tax return completed. We charge a reduced fee of £50 per tax return which is outstanding outside the current tax year.

All Inclusive

Your fee covers all the work necessary to bring your tax affairs up to date and to keep them in order.


We do reserve the right to re-assess the initial enrollment fee if the workload is more involved to the extent that a number of returns need to be submitted. Additional fees may be necessary to deal with National Insurance and rental income. Added to this is the fact that we will check your partners tax affairs without any extra charge. If it becomes necessary to deal with your partners tax affairs then a charge may be levied. Please note our fee includes VAT, it is not added on. If a firm offers a fee of, for example, £225 and then states in small letters, plus vat, the actual fee is £264!
