Our Range of Services

Annual Accounts Preparation

We can prepare the annual accounts that your business needs to submit to Companies House and to HM Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) with the company’s tax return. We aim to produce the accounts as soon as possible after the year- end has passed to make them useful and relevant. All accounts are talked through with our clients to ensure full understanding of the figures.

PAYROLL

We run Sage payroll for a wide variety of clients, and set up a system for each client to ensure an efficient flow of the payroll information, including details of the necessary tax payments. We deal with HMRC on your behalf and prepare all the year end reports required by them.

Financial Director (“FD”) Support

For a number of our larger clients we provide an outsourced FD service in order to oversee the accounts function. David advises on the financial considerations of the business’s strategy, provides reports to investors and to the Bank, and assists in raising new finance from investors on your behalf. This support can be provided on an ongoing retainer basis or for a specific project.

Business Plans

If your business requires new investment then we can work with you to produce a robust Business Plan that incorporates all the necessary financial information.

Book-Keeping

You can send us your accounting records on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis and we will process the information at our offices or we can send a book-keeper to your premises. We primary use Xero which is a user friendly online bookkeeping solution but also work with Sage Line 50 and Quickbooks . The information processed feeds into the VAT returns and year -end accounts helping their preparation to be a seamless process due to the fact that we have in depth knowledge of the transactions that have gone into them. We can provide you with as few or as many reports as you require to ensure you have an ongoing understanding of your business’s results, who owes you money or what payments you need to make.

Management Accounts

We can prepare regular management accounts tailored to your requirements, providing up to date information to help you make crucial decisions about your business.

Cash Flows

We believe cash flow forecasts to be an essential management tool and have extensive experience in this area. Once we have set up a cash flow for a client we can help to monitor and update them on a daily, weekly or monthly basis as is required.

Preparation of Pre-Audit File

We have extensive audit experience and understand what Auditors are looking for and for larger companies that require an Audit we can put together detailed files for the Auditors to try and keep their questioning to a minimum and help you negotiate a reduction in the Audit fee.

Company Secretarial

We can be the Registered Office for your company and will deal with all the necessary paperwork required by Companies House to meet all your obligations.

Budgeting & Forecasting

We work closely with clients to produce budgets and help them monitor and analyse any variances and see if they are still on track.
