Fixed fee accounting services that work for you
Supportive, pro-active accounting services
Our accounting services
We produce annual accounts for small and medium sized businesses, whether you’re a sole trader, partnership, or operating as a limited company.
Far from just a compliance exercise, we review the completed accounts to make sure you’re operating as tax efficiently as possible, while also providing you with an insight into company performance that allows you to plan for the future.
Bookkeeping plays an essential part in making sure your accounts are accurate and you’re claiming all relevant business expenses. We know it can be a chore and our monthly or quarterly bookkeeping services can take the pressure off by doing all this for you, giving you back the time you need to focus on the business.
If you’d like more frequent reporting on business performance than just annual accounts, we can provide management accounts to give you timely feedback. Usually this will be at the same time as completing your VAT returns, but can be more frequent if required.
Whether you’re happy completing your own bookkeeping, or you’d like us to help, we understand that sometimes VAT returns can be hard work. With our expertise in VAT legislation, we make sure you’re charging and reclaiming the correct amount of VAT while completing your returns. This means any issues can be addressed in a timely manner.
Making Tax Digital and Software Training
The new law on ‘making tax digital’ means that a substantial number of businesses are now required to keep their accounting records in a digital format.
There are a lot of options for digital accounting and some will suit your business better than others. We can talk you through the various options and help you to get set up on your preferred choice. If you need an extra helping hand we can provide further training.
Employing staff can be crucial to building up a business and with HMRC’s real time information requirements as well as pensions auto-enrolment, it’s important to keep on top of your responsibilities as an employer. Our payroll service simplifies the process by completing all HMRC submissions for you. We provide you with payslips for employees, as well as clear advice on PAYE payments and due dates.
Company Formation and Company Secretarial
We can advise on the best structure for your business, whether you’re just starting out or the business has grown and needs a review. We can incorporate a limited company for you if this is the right model for you. With a limited company set up comes additional filing requirements for updating details of directors and shareholders, as well as filing an annual confirmation statement. Keep us in the loop with any changes to your business and we’ll take care of all this for you.
Self Assessment Tax Returns
Self-assessment tax returns can be daunting. Our tax qualified experts are on hand to complete your tax return accurately for you, making the process stress-free.
Whether you require a basic tax return, for example you have rental income in addition to employment, or your affairs are far more complex, we’re here to help.
Self-assessment tax returns can be completed on a standalone basis, but are also included within our fixed fee business accounting packages. We always prepare a quote on an individual basis to meet your needs, so you can be assured you won’t incur any hidden charges.
Business Tax Planning
We are qualified Chartered Tax Advisors, which means we’re best placed to make sure your business is operating as tax efficiently as possible. We like to get to know our clients and through building strong relationships and regularly keeping in touch with how the business is going, we’re able to be as pro-active as possible. Every business will come across something unusual now and then, so we’re just at the end of the phone to give you peace of mind and avoid any unexpected tax bills.
Personal Tax Planning
Whether you’re disposing of assets, planning for the future or wanting to review your estate, we can help you better understand the tax implications.
There’s nothing worse than a letter arriving on your doorstep from HMRC enquiring into your business or personal tax return. It happens and it’s unavoidable but it doesn’t need to be terrifying. With our accountancy services you can rest assured that everything is in order and even if you are the subject of a enquiry, it will merely be a routine exercise which we can take care of for you. We communicate with HMRC directly on behalf of our clients, resolving queries as quickly as possible and saving you the stress and time investment.
