Fishing and marine clients have long been an important part of the GWA family. With an office in Berwick-upon-Tweed since 1918, we have always had close ties with the local sea and river fishing communities.

The fishing and seafood sector is extremely varied.  Whatever your specialism – be it bringing in the daily catch, managing a river fishing syndicate, processing the catch in your factory or selling the best produce via your wholesale or retail outlet – our team of experts is there to help ensure your finances are in the best possible shape.

You can be confident that our decades of maritime knowledge and experience will provide support to your business as it grows. We can provide peace of mind when it comes to tax-related challenges around the issues of new vessels or equipment, employment, staff and crew.

Below are some of the services our fishing and marine clients rely on us for:

  • form 46G
  • help with penalties and appeals
  • personal and corporation tax returns
  • advice on the best structure for your fishing or marine business
  • succession strategy planning for the next generation
