Bookkeeping & Accounting
We can relieve you and your staff of an enormous burden by taking care of all your bookkeeping and accounting needs, including the preparation of your annual accounts.
Our first step is to work with you so we can gain a full understanding of your business. We then tailor our approach to your requirements so we can provide exactly the service you need.
Besides your core bookkeeping, we can also maintain your VAT records, prepare and audit your group pension fund, and take on short-term projects to relieve your staff of any temporary overload.
But perhaps the most important part of this service is the preparation of management accounts. These are vital to the continued success of Your business. We discuss your requirements with you and provide you with tailored information and constructive advice on a regular basis.
Most people who start up in business do so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through, not because they are experts in the legal, financial, and fiscal aspects of running a business.
Indeed, these matters can often seem daunting, and even off-putting, to the budding entrepreneur. The good news is that you do not need to be an expert in these fields to succeed in business. All you need is the support of a team of trained experts.
That''s where we fit in. Bring us your business ideas and we''ll help you to evaluate them in a constructive and realistic manner. We can also help you:
Decide on the most suitable structure for your business - sole trader, partnership, or limited company
Prepare a business plan, cash flow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts
Assess your finance requirements, advise on the best sources of finance, and draw up the necessary proposals
Establish a good working relationship with your bank
Complete any registration procedures with Companies House, Inland Revenue, or Customs and Excise
Deal with company secretarial issues
Set up a recording system for your internal use and for complying with statutory requirements
Start your new venture on a sure footing - call us for an initial consultation today
The last thing you need as a busy business owner is to use up valuable time and resources making sure you are complying with the Companies Act.
Moreover, with company legislation changing at the rate it does, you need to be sure you are fully aware of how the changes affect you and your fellow directors.
We can give you complete peace of mind in this area by carrying out your company secretarial duties for you.
Our services include:
Preparation and filing of statutory returns
Preparation of all documentation related to minutes and resolutions
Maintenance of statutory books
General advice on company law
Administering your payroll can be time consuming and burdensome, diverting energy and resources from the core activities of your business. And the task is made all the more difficult by the growing complexity of taxation and employment legislation and the accompanying regime of penalties for non-compliance.
We have dedicated staff that can relieve you of this burden by providing a comprehensive and confidential payroll service, including:
Administration of PAYE, national insurance, statutory sick pay, statutory maternity pay, etc
Completion of statutory forms, including year end returns, to issue to your employees and submit to the Inland Revenue
Summaries and analyses of staff costs
Administration of incentive schemes, bonuses, and ex-gratia and termination payments
Administration of pension schemes
Even if you have only a few employees, you will make savings by engaging us to administer your payroll.
Everyone knows that a successful business must plan ahead, but all too often the pressures of keeping the business going on a daily basis mean that strategic planning is not given the attention it needs. The result is often rushed judgements, over- or under-capacity, or missed opportunities.
Every business owner needs a planning adviser who has the time and space to take the long view and advice on appropriate courses of action before it is too late. With years of experience advising the local business community we have a wealth of experience and expertise for you to draw on. Contact us today for a planning review.
Audit & Tax Services
Though business owners traditionally regard the annual audit and preparation of annual accounts as a cost centre - a necessary evil that adds no value to the business - we strive to transform it into a profit centre.
Besides helping you meet the statutory requirements, we also take the opportunity to conduct a review of your financial and management systems. This can often result in our identifying potential problem areas and recommending opportunities to improve your business performance. We discuss the problems and opportunities with you and help you implement any agreed solutions.
We see the preparation of your annual report as an opportunity to enhance your external image. A well-prepared report can have a considerable positive impact on the perceptions of investors, potential finance sources, customers, prospect, referral sources, and even your own staff - all of which greatly improves your business prospects for the future.
