Although businesses have always sought professional assistance when it comes to completing their annual tax returns, it is only more recently that individuals are also doing so. Tax returns advice can be sought from any number of tax professionals in any country and for a fee, they will fill in your return for you, ensuring that all relevant information is correct and also making claims for any exemptions which may be applicable. Many of the individuals that seek this sort of advice, find that the savings that they make due to exemptions they had not been aware of, often more than pay for the fee charged by the tax professional. Each year, any government only pays out a percentage of the refunds which they had expected to do as many individuals are unaware of all the refund possibilities there are. Obviously, as a professional, the tax experts know of any and all tax exemptions that currently exist and ensure that they will apply as many as possible to your return. When a government agrees to a tax exemption, they have already estimated how much they will have to pay in refunds should everybody that is entitled to the exemption, applies for it. When the government then does not have to pay out as much as expected, they are in the positive with their tax revenues but, that positive position rarely stays for long as many companies, especially the larger ones, often pay far less tax than the government expected them to. Tax returns for businesses can be a minefield of different clauses and regulations and by hiring professionals, sometimes full time, to deal with these returns, a business can save itself huge amounts in tax payments and many of the savings, the government were not expecting. This means that in any given year, a government will receive less in tax revenues than they had expected. They will try therefore, to make up this deficit in the following year by increasing tax rates. This means that the average person will pay more income tax and anyone who buys anything, will pay more purchase tax for whatever they buy. In the meantime of course, those same tax experts are still working for the same large companies and still scheming to find ways their bosses can pay less tax. This creates an ever increasing round of tax hikes with no perceivable benefits for the average person. The ability of governments to appropriately deal with these legal tax evasions is something that is being asked by an increasing number of people and so if the problem is not soon addressed, any government currently in power, can expect to have a short lived career. Although still only at the conspiracy theory stage, there are an increasing number of people that believe the governments don’t care as, on retiring from politics, they will be given good jobs by the same companies that they allow to save money on tax payments today.

Large trucks, in Europe, are referred to as heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and so therefore require HGV insurance before they can be driven on any roads. If, as a car driver, you look at an hgv insurance quote, you may think it a little high but things that have to be taken into consideration are the weight of the truck and the amount of damage it could cause if it were to be involved in an accident. Just as the type of insurance you take out on your car can affect the amount of the insurance premium, the same thing applies to HGV insurance. With a car there are just three types of insurance, third party insurance which only covers any injury, death or property damage caused to a third party. As this ignores any damage that may occur to the insured’s car, it is cheaper and is the minimum amount of insurance required by the law. A third party fire and theft policy is a little more costly as although covering third parties in the same way, it also covers the cost of fire or theft to the owner’s vehicle. The most expensive car insurance for a car owner is comprehensive insurance and as this does also cover damage to the insured’s vehicle, it obviously would cost more. With HGV insurance although similar things have to be considered, the damage that an HGV can cause to any third party could be far more costly and so the insurance companies allow for this when setting their price. This means that usually, the larger and heavier the HGV, the more the insurance for that truck will cost. It is an established fact that it is younger drivers which, as a percentage, cause the most accidents and so the insurance companies know this and may have additional costs if an HGV driver is younger than 25 years of age, something that all truck business owners need to be aware of. Many trucking businesses own more than just one truck and so they may look to get a discount by insuring all their trucks with the same company and although this is possible, it could take a lot of shopping around to find the best deal. It is for that same reason, many trucking company owners opt to hire an insurance broker to do that shopping on their behalf. As insurance brokers are often ex insurance agents they know their way around the insurance business. An insurance agent is someone hired by an insurance company to sell their policies for them and in order to do so, instruct the agent on all the fine print in the insurance policies. However, in return, that agent must sell that particular company’s policies and no others. A broker is usually someone that has left an insurance company’s employ in order to be free to sell insurance from any company. This means that a broker can offer a far wider range of policies than any single agent can and HGV owners can gain from that.
