Compliance

Accounts

Our team specialize in small and growing businesses. They understand the issues you face and the areas you need help with. We know that you don’t want to be unduly burdened with accounting requirements so we can take much of this pressure away by preparing the accounts for you.

We can produce annual accounts for a limited company, sole trader or partnership from any source documentation, manual records or computer generated accounts.

It’s also important to remember that a useful set of accounts can be a powerful asset in making good business decisions. We want to help your business become more efficient and productive resulting in you saving money or helping you earn more. We also offer a consultation every year before the accounting year end to review your business and advise on tax planning opportunities.

If you want to produce your own bookkeeping records we have lots of ideas for time saving cloud accounting software and apps.

Compliance query? Please give us a call.

Corporation tax return

Each year you will be required to file a Company Tax Return with HMRC and pay corporation tax.

Our accountants can assist with the preparation of company accounts, company tax returns and tax computations. We are here to relieve the burden of making sure everything is filed correctly and on time so you can have peace of mind that your tax is all sorted.

We offer a consultation every year before the accounting year end to review your business and to advise on tax planning opportunities.

We also provide a Company Secretarial Service to make sure you comply with Companies House filing requirements including filing financial statements and the Companies House Confirmation Statement (CS01 form)

Payroll

Running a payroll can be time consuming and complicated and divert resources from the core activities of your business.

With the implementation of Real Time Information, HMRC require information generally on or before the date of payment to the employee. Outsourcing this activity to us helps relieve the pressure and is cost effective. We are able to provide the complete service or simply provide support when needed.

VAT

We can help you set up a VAT account and liaise with HMRC on your behalf.

Our team can prepare your VAT return either from your own bookkeeping records or we can take care of the bookkeeping and vat return for you. We will try to ensure that you claim as much VAT as possible. Filing VAT returns late or with errors can lead to interest and penalties being charged. We can help you comply so you don’t need to worry.

As of April 2019 many businesses are required to file VAT returns using digital software that is compliant with the new HMRC ‘Making Tax Digital’ (MTD) scheme. We are up to date with the requirements for MTD and are experts in cloud software that is fully compliant so we can help you.

Business growth

Business plans & forecasting

Every business should plan ahead to ensure success but daily business pressures often make this difficult. Financial forecasts are a crucial part of any business plan and we can produce meaningful reports for you and help you use them to keep a close eye on your finances.

Management accounts

Management accounts show you how your business is doing either monthly or quarterly. We can prepare these for you to ensure you always have reliable and accurate information on which to base your business decisions.

Credit control

Regular, proactive contact with debtors keeps the cash flowing into the business and reduces the chance of debts becoming too large.

We can provide this cost effective service for you. In our experience, when debts are kept on top of, we rarely need to become ‘heavy handed’ in our dealings. We know customer relationships are important to your business. Where debtors don’t pay we can help to recover the debt.

Raising financing

One third of SMEs expect business funding to become more difficult post-Brexit. And with access to a finance a key driver in the growth of your business, this lack of accessible business funding could provide an obstacle to your short, medium and longer-term plans. We have teamed up with Capitalise, the business funding specialists, to help bring you a simple and efficient way to fulfil your funding needs.
