Services

Accounting

 

We can help with all aspects of accounts preparation for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies.

 

We can advise on and assist in the preparation of limited company Statutory Financial Statements including the preparation and electronic submission to Companies House of reduced disclosure accounts applicable to small companies.

Whilst we are not licensed to carry out audit work, we can assist in preparing a suitable year end audit file ready for audit so as to ensure optimum audit efficiency.

 

Access to timely and reliable data is vital.

We can help produce management accounts giving focus to recent business performance, providing analysis and forecasts in areas such as cash flow and profits.

These management accounts can be used to identify the profitability and efficiency of different business areas or product lines to assess the efficiency of different parts of your business, thus assisting in financial decision-making.

Tax

 

We can help our individual and business clients with all aspects of tax compliance, tax planning and tax advice.

 

We can help our personal clients with their annual tax compliance to ensure returns are filed accurately and on time.

 

Similarly, we can advise and assist in relation to Corporation Tax planning and compliance, including preparation and submission of corporate returns, capital allowance claims, R&D tax credit claims and applications for industry specific reliefs and benefits.

 

We can help you consider and plan your exposure to Capital Gains Tax (CGT) and Inheritance Tax (IHT) and ensure that all applicable reliefs and allowances are claimed to minimise any tax due.

 

As with all taxes, the importance of planning should not be underestimated. We can assist with all aspects of tax planning to ensure all options are considered to best manage any given situation and mitigate any resultant tax due.

Payroll & PAYE

 

We can setup and provide  payroll services for you and your staff ensuring all aspects of pay and PAYE/NIC legislation are complied with.

Pay elements and the changing way in which we are all working brings its own challenges.

Employees today are increasingly looking for a better work/life balance and are often seeking a more flexible remuneration package.

We can help you review your employees needs and bring opportunities for tax-efficient solutions such as salary sacrifice, remote working, cycle to work schemes etc

We can also provide advice on the choice of employee benefits and their tax implications for both the business and the employee and ensure all benefit-in-kind reporting is made to HMRC in an efficient and timely manner.

We can also advise on employment status and related PAYE compliance and employment rights.

Company Secretarial

 

We offer a comprehensive range of company secretarial services to businesses at all stage of their life cycle, whether it be company formations, share reconstructions, maintenance of statutory registers, preparation of statutory resolutions and minutes of meetings, as well as submission of documents to Companies House to ensure statutory compliance (annual confirmation statements, annual accounts, statements of Persons with Significant Control (PSC's), officer appointments/retirements, issue and transfers of shares etc)

 

We can also arrange for our own office address to be used as your company Registered Office address. 

This is often useful if you have only a virtual office set up, where there is no responsible person on hand to deal promptly with official communications or where you wish for sensitive or confidential information to be sent which you do not wish to be viewed by your local team.
 

VAT

 

Value Added Tax (VAT)  is one of the most complex taxes and requires careful planning and implementation to ensure businesses comply with legislation and account for and pay the right amount of tax.

 

We can provide you with advice in connection with VAT registration and can assist and offer guidance in relation to one-off transactions and current or proposed business supplies both here and abroad.

 

We can also offer advice on keeping VAT records, compliance with the new Making Tax Digital (MTD) requirements and offer assistance with the preparation and submission of your VAT returns as well as keeping you abreast of the ever-increasing and changing legislation as it affects you and your business.
