SERVICES WE OFFER

 

We offer a full management accounting service using the latest Sage software and state of the art technology to process your business records and to deliver to you all the key management information essential to you to profitably run your business. We have recently invested in the latest technology and can now either remotely access your Sage records held on your computer, or alternatively we can maintain your records on our Sage programme and allow you access to these records, at any time. Read below for a detailed view of the areas in which we can assist you:

Business accounts​

We can prepare all types of accounts, from small sole trader businesses, to larger enterprises such as, partnerships and companies.

Management accounts

You may not consider that management accounts are necessary, but in these difficult and challenging economic times, it can be useful to review how your results are going, in an affordable way. Because we have the technology to link up to your accounting system, we are able to access your bookkeeping system remotely and provide you with management accounts, for an affordable fee.

 

Forecasting

From time to time you may need profit and cash flow forecasts for your business.

Statutory accounts

All company accounts are required to be prepared in what we call a ‘statutory’ format. This means that the accounts have to be presented in a set way and disclosure of certain key information must be included. We have a great deal of experience in this field and can offer you an efficient and cost effective service.

Payroll service

We also offer a Payroll service tailored to your particular needs. We can take over your payroll completely, and prepare weekly and/or monthly wage calculations and all end of year returns, including P11Ds, so taking the strain off your shoulders. If you prefer, you can complete the weekly and/or monthly calculations whilst we take care of all end of year returns.

We think you will be surprised by how cost-effective our payroll service can be.

Personal tax returns

We have a wealth of experience in the preparation of personal tax returns, providing you with the assurance that you are paying the correct amount of tax and no more, and your chance of a Revenue and Customs investigation are minimised. We can complete the very basic return, through to the more complex returns with many forms of income.

We will advise you of any tax liability you may have and the due dates of payment.

Corporate tax returns

A company is required to file an annual corporation tax return. We can complete this on your behalf and advise you of the company’s tax liability.

VAT returns

We can prepare your VAT returns, usually as part of our bookkeeping service, and advise you of the VAT due to be paid or refunded. We have all the experience necessary to ensure that we claim the correct amount of VAT thus protecting you from penalties which Revenue and Customs can impose on incorrect returns.

Inheritance tax planning

Many people these days worry about how much inheritance tax will be paid before their estate is passed on to their loved ones. We can carry out a thorough review of your financial situation and prepare a report of our recommendations.
