Will I pay less tax if my partnership incorporates?

Can anyone help me with definitive advice on whether my consultancy partnership should incorporate to significantly reduce our tax burden?  Successive accountants have told me that it is "swings and roundabouts" and that overall our tax position would not change much from our current partnership to a limited company.  But when I have asked for a detailed comparison to prove this I am quoted a lot of money and reluctance to actually undertake one.

There must be a cost effective way of finding out one way or the other.  If you can help me please let me know.

How much detail do you want?
