CloudsDo you feel that you don’t get any value from your annual accounts?  Are they always prepared several months after the end of the financial year by which time things have moved on a lot so they are largely irrelevant?

Our Accounts Plus service is designed to give your business value from the process of preparing accounts.  It uses the latest online accounts software to streamline the whole accounts production process so that you receive not only annual accounts but also quarterly management reports from us.  This means you have much more relevant information at your fingertips from which to run your business.

We set ourselves the target of producing all accounts and reports within just one month of the end of the period.   Because both you and we have access to the online accounts software it means that we can work collaboratively on your accounts throughout the year, turning us into your Virtual Financial Officer so you get the benefit of our expertise.

We love Xero and we think you will too!

When it comes to which online accounts software to choose we will work with any system that you prefer including Sage, Quickbooks, FreeAgent and Kashflow.

Our system of choice is Xero as we think that it is the market leader in terms of value for money, ease of us and features.  We are Xero Bronze Partners so we know this software really well, allowing you to get the best from it.  Find out more about Xero at xero.com

And what’s more…

But the best thing of all about the Accounts Plus service is how much it costs. The use of technology allows us to provide this enhanced service to you at a really competitive price, often for the same amount or less than you are paying now for a traditional accounts service.  Arrange a free meeting wih us and we can show you how this all works and provide you with a quote.

Matchsticks spelling 'help'Handing over jobs such as payroll and bookkeeping to us means you’ll have more time to concentrate on other areas of your business.

We offer a full service in this area, tailored to your requirements and budget. Remember, we offer a fixed annual fee so you know your costs in advance with no nasty surprises.

Payroll and Workplace Pensions

Our payroll service is a really efficient way of taking care of the burden of this administrative task, now made even harder with the advent of filing with HMRC in real time and Workplace Pensions automatic enrolment.

Once you give us the information we make sure your employees can be paid the right amount at the right time.  We ensure you don’t have to worry about late filing penalties with HMRC.

Workplace pensions are now being introduced for all employers, whatever the size of the payroll.  Qualifying employees are automatically enrolled into a pension scheme and it is the employers responsibiity to ensure that this is done in compliance with the law. We’ll get you sorted out with automatic enrolment – from the set up of the scheme to its eventual operation.

 

Bookkeeping

When it comes to bookkeeping, you may be happy to carry out some of the work yourself, such as invoicing, with the balance of the work being carried out by us – this is where using cloud based accounts software such as Xero comes into its own as we can work as a team with you.

We will tailor our service to your resources and budget so you can relax, safe in the knowledge that your books and records are being kept correctly.

VAT

As Chartered Tax Advisers, we can also take care of all your VAT requirements, such as registration and deregistration, filing your online returns and technical advice on specific VAT issues.

Helping you with sound tax advice.

Man receiving advice from accountant

Man receiving advice from accountantSome accountants see tax work as just a form filling task to be done.  Not us.  We see tax work as an opportunity to do the best we can for our clients so they get the best deal possible out of the tax system.

We actively look for ways our clients can do better, constantly reviewing strategies as new tax legislation comes out.  All our clients receive a free end of tax year review as part of the package.

Good tax advice can really help you to make the right decisions.  As you would expect from a firm of Chartered Tax Advisers, when the time comes that you need some sound tax advice, we are able to provide you with a quality service.

Property

If you’re a landlord or a property developer, we can help you with our sound advice.  Owning investment property involves careful financial and tax planning and we have strong expertise in this area.  For example, we will explain the tax implications of owning property through a company versus owning property personally.

Buying, owning and selling properties can involve any or all of the major taxes – income tax, corporation tax, capital gains tax, VAT, stamp duty land tax and inheritance tax.  As Chartered Tax Advisers we can help you through this maze.

Investments and pensions

If you have investments or pensions we can look after the tax affairs that arise.  Good tax planning advice can be invaluable.  Please note that we are not authorised to give investment advice ourselves. However, we will work closely with your chosen financial adviser or refer you to one of our carefully chosen partners.

Mortgages

If you need a mortgage for either your own home or for an investment property, we can help you by working with lenders and carefully chosen mortgage
