Business Accounting

Take control of your business

Who says Accountants live in the past? Just because your year end accounts are a historical summary doesn't mean the rest of your financial information has to be. If you keep your records up to date then add to it what you know about and then you can forecast. With a forecast you can plan ahead. Add in some monitoring and then you are in control of the numbers rather than the numbers being in control of you.

Your business shouldn't be all about accounts but, at some point, you have to do them. Accounts and accounts preparation aren't fun. We keep it simple so you can try to enjoy being in business.

Keep your records up to date


  • Bookkeeping
    • Invoices, receipts, bank statements, credit card statements. But you just want to run your business don't you. With more years of experience in sorting client paperwork out than we care to mention (oh go on then 33 and counting), we are good at this, actually better than good.
  • VAT
    • The necessary evil. It isn't if you keep control of it. Don't spend your VAT money, save it, forget about it, submit your return, pay your bill, move on. We keep it simple. 
  • Payroll
    • Leavers, starters, maternity, legislation changes, submitting online and on time. Something else you are doing that takes up your time. We'll sort it so you can forget about that too.




  • Management Accounts
    • If you want to know where you're at, and quickly, preparing useful management accounts (not just a version of your year end accounts) will help you focus on your business and what you need to do to get you where you want to be. It's a journey. We'll help map it out.
  • Year End Accounts
    • Used primarily for calculating your Business tax and reporting to members or trustees. There are a range of formats and official filing requirements. 
  • Corporation Tax
    • Another tax for incorporated businesses to pay. We'll calculate and submit for you. Get your year end accounts done as soon after year end so you can plan for the dreaded bill.


Planning / Forecasting


  • Business projections
    • Knowing where you want to get to means you can work backwards to work out what you need to do to get there. Equally you might not be sure of your destination but know you like doing x, but what do I need to do, how many do I need to sell to make a living out of it? By creating a business plan and forecast, reviewing it and amending it, you will gain control and focus on what you need to do. 
  • Corporation Tax forecasting
    • With timely information plus a bit of forecasting thrown in for good measure, we can estimate your CT bill so you can plan for it, then put some money aside and just pay it without stressing. 


Statutory obligations


  • Formations & Company Secretarial
    • We can advise you on the most efficient structure for your business be that Limited Company, LLP, Sole Trader, Partnership etc. We can act as your registered office, retain your statutory records, maintain minutes of meetings and keep your declarations up to date.
  • Auto enrolment
    • We can advise and assist you with your obligations regarding the necessary pension scheme for you and your employees.



Fixed fee or not to fixed fee

What's worse than your tax bill? Your Accountants bill for telling you how much tax you have to pay. A double hit. So why wait for an annual bill and then have it, your Corporation Tax bill and most probably VAT too to all fall at once? Spread your payments over 12 months and include our Forecasting package for free!
