Financial Planner for Business Owners - UnaVida Wealth Management Ltd

Business Tax & Financial Planner for Business Owners

We understand that effective tax planning is at its most efficient when the adviser has a firm understanding of the personal and business financial arrangements.
Using this knowledge, it is often possible to make very cash flow savings and reduce tax, indeed using the “money go round” flows of personal monies into the business and out of the business, we often can make substantial one-off savings for the business owner.

Aligning your business and personal wealth goals

We work with business owners who generate annual profits of £175,000 or more.
If you wish to grow your business and increase your personal wealth, do contact us for a second opinion.

If your business is a good fit, we trust we will be able to repeat the success we have achieved for our business owner clients.

Understanding the 'minefield' of financial management , with all of the legalities and thresholds is not easy for those who have spent their working lives in other industries. The comfort of having an Expert to guide you through all of the complexities is of paramount importance. Having met & known Ray Best, UnaVida, for several years before placing my complete trust in Ray's operation means security for myself, family in my retirement & future. Thankyou Ray & UnaVida.

Until two years ago our investments were through major banks and we had become used to being small fish in a large pond where we had very little influence on investment decisions or advice on overall financial management. Disappointed and frustrated we discovered a locally based IFA that provided a comprehensive financial strategy covering investment, pensions, inheritance tax, wills, and life planning. We now feel appreciated and more closely involved with regular reviews, newsletters, and personal contact. Our investment portfolio has performed very well even in the last difficult 12 months. Ray has also been able to offer us very useful advice on using our investments to help our 3 children when they needed financial support. We have no hesitation in giving an unqualified recommendation for Ray and his team at UnaVida. Mike and Maggie Elson

Ray has been my IFA for nearly 8 years now throughout that time under Ray's guidance the performance of the portfolio has been consistent and has provided both gains in capitol and an income . however this year has been exceptional and Ray has excelled in picking some prime investments and with good timing has significantly increased my capitol . Ray has always been very good at communicating his views on investments and with his news letters , not only a good read and interesting shows a deep understanding of what is happening in the financial world . i would like to thank Ray and his team for a great performance this year.

A pension is a long-term investment that typically cannot be accessed until age 55 (57 from April 2028). The level of pension benefits offered could change depending on the value of your investments (and any income they may generate).

The interest rates in effect at the time you begin receiving benefits may also have an impact on your pension income. The tax consequences of pension withdrawals will depend on your unique situation. In later Finance Acts, tax rates, tax bases, and tax relief may change.

The opinions expressed by Ray Best are meant to inform and educate. Before making any investment decisions always take advice that is pertinent to your investment personality and financial situation.

You are aware that past performance will not necessarily be repeated in the future, but you should be aware that persistent poor performance invariably will.

The value of an investment and the income from it could go down as well as up.

The return at the end of the investment period is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you originally invested.
