Accountancy

We recognise that each client has individual needs and we will therefore tailor our services and work closely with you to meet your own needs and ensure compliance with all relevant standards.

If you are a limited company or registered charity, you will be required to prepare statutory accounts that must be filed with Companies House and/or The Charities Commission. We can help you by preparing such accounts and filing them with the appropriate authorities on your behalf.

Computerised Accounts

We are able to prepare your full annual accounts from across the range of computing or manual bookkeeping systems including cloud based accounting software. Whether you are a Charity, Sole Trader, Partnership, Limited Company, Club or Association our software enables us to produce annual accounts for your business in accordance with professional standards.

We aim to be timely, accurate and informative at each stage of the process and to discuss any implications which may have arisen with you.

We will work from incomplete records, manual ledgers or your own computerised records and provide them in formats suitable for proprietors, banks or other lenders, the H. M. Revenue & Customs, The Charities Commission and/or the Registrar of Companies. We can also produce forecasts from information provided and periodic management accounts. We also act as formal “Examiners” of accounts whenever appropriate.

Bookkeeping

Our bookkeeping services can save you hours of your own invaluable time and resources. After discussing your specific requirements with you we can set up appropriate accounting procedures and controls so as to ensure that your accounts are kept fully up-to-date and in compliance with statutory regulations.

We can also provide management accounts to keep you informed on essential areas such as:

  • Cashflow
  • Profitability
  • Performance ratios
  • Customer activity
  • Credit control
  • Budget comparisons

VAT

We are pleased to help with initial VAT registration, advising on the most appropriate VAT scheme to suit you and provide all compliant returns. Should you find yourself facing a VAT enquiry, we can also help to take the headache out of the process by negotiating with HMRC on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Our Services include:

  • Advice and assistance on VAT

  • Partial Exemption
  • Guidance on high-risk areas of VAT

VAT can be a complex issue and careful consideration upfront may help avoid unnecessary or unforeseen costs and also achieve maximum tax and cash flow efficiency - we are here to help you and with our guidance we may be able to save you substantial sums.

Monthly Management Accounts

We believe the key to a successful business is to have up-to-date financial information at your fingertips and by providing a monthly management account service (ranging from a simple profit and loss account to a detailed analysis of cost centre activities) we can help you to keep up to date with advances in accounting software and simplify the preparation of your annual accounts.
