Annual financial statements

Your accounts are necessary to keep you compliant with regulatory requirements and the tax authorities, but they have the potential to offer much more.

Prepared in the right way, they provide a vital tool to help your business run smoothly and provide valuable information for forward planning and decision-making.

By getting to know our clients and their businesses, we are ideally placed to prepare and interpret your accounts in the context of your business needs and the bigger economic picture of the sector in which you operate. We’ll also time your accounts production to help you take advantage of early tax planning opportunities.

We’ll identify strengths and unexpected trends within your accounts and suggest solutions if we find areas where your business and its performance could be enhanced.

We also offer a range of accounting services, including management accounts, payroll and VAT, to ease your administrative burden and give you the time that you need to get your business off the ground, as well as providing the information you need for decision-making

And once you are up and running, we’ll be there to support you as you take the next steps in growing your business.

Company secretarial

Every limited company must meet all statutory requirements.

For start-up or smaller businesses, this can be a demanding administrative burden when you have limited resources – but failure to file the necessary information on time, or correctly, can have serious consequences.

By using our company secretarial service, we will keep you compliant with Companies House. We’ll look after all the necessary duties and responsibilities, including ensuring that annual returns are made, notifying members of meetings, and keeping minutes of directors’ and general meetings, releasing the time and resources you need to run your business in the most effective way.

If you’re setting up a new business, we can take care of all the necessary administration and documentation.


The VAT regime is so complicated that that many businesses unintentionally overpay or underpay VAT. Dealing with VAT can also act as a drain on your in-house resources.

So it’s a sensible step to turn to professionals in the VAT field for efficient, cost-effective services, so that you can be sure you’ll stay compliant with VAT regulations and only pay the tax you owe.

Our services include VAT registration, checking of VAT returns that you have prepared in-house, preparing VAT returns on your behalf and VAT control and reconciliation.

We can also advise on both day to day VAT issues and on the VAT implications of specific business transactions, as well as providing support in VAT investigations.

Due Diligence

Due diligence

When you are involved in a business acquisition or merger, you want to know exactly what you are buying, as you would with any purchase.

Our experience in working with a wide range of businesses means that we are well placed to review the financial aspects of any business in which you are considering investing, working alongside your legal advisers.
We’ll look at issues including financial performance, both in the past and projections for the future, accounts, cash flow, valuation of assets and property and tax compliance, so that we can draw up a complete picture of the state of the business’s financial health.

Then we will report on any potential risks, providing you with the information you need to ensure that you are paying a fair price and that there will be no unpleasant financial surprises waiting for you.

Management information

Good quality management information is crucial to the successful running of your business, whether you are just starting out, managing growth or preparing to sell.

We understand that you need information and advice presented in a straightforward way, to help you make the evidence-based decisions that will best benefit your business.

From book keeping to management accounts, benchmarking to budgeting and cash flow management to profit forecasting, we can help. Because you’ll have a fully informed overview of your business, its performance and its potential, you’ll have a much clearer vision for your future.

We can assist in the creation of your accounting and administration systems and take responsibility for the control of that department, including recruitment.

Then we’ll help you to define your goals and identify the tools you need to achieve them, from making sure your business works as efficiently as possible to sourcing the necessary funding.

Payroll Outsourcing

For many businesses, payroll management and staying up to date with ever-changing payroll regulations take up valuable in-house time and resources that could be better used elsewhere.

By using our payroll service, you can be sure that your payroll will be prepared quickly, efficiently and accurately, keeping you compliant with HM Revenue & Customs requirements and deadlines.

We’ll produce your payroll at the desired frequency, calculating tax and national insurance deductions from your staff, as well as dealing with issues including bonuses, holiday pay, pension deductions, statutory sick pay, statutory maternity pay and student loan deductions.

We’ll also prepare all the statutory forms required, including the employers’ P35 annual return, the employees’ annual P60 tax and pay summary and P11Ds, detailing benefits in kind.
