Compliance is a key issue for clients and the preparation and submission of VAT on a timely manner is a key bi monthly headache. Taking the headache and fuss out of VAT compliance which enables the client to focus on the key issues of the business is what we do. We provide several different types of service in this area with simple excel based vat compilation, bimonthly bookkeeping and then a cloud accounting offering.
Regardless of what you are looking for in the lines of VAT work we can provide a fully tailored service for your needs and budget. As part of our bookkeeping work we also offer the add on of management accounts which ensures that business owners are up to date with figures which give them the ability to make fully informed decisions.

The filing of annual income tax returns for the self-employed can be a stressful time for clients. We prepare and submit annual tax returns for the self-employed whether it’s a business or simply a director who is obliged to file an income tax return.

As part of your annual review we look at areas like pension funding and tax savings, transferring the business into a company and managing tax payments.
From company incorporations to the filing of annual returns we offer a full and comprehensive range of services. Annual B1 compliance is one of the most important dates for a company due to the late filing fees and the loss of audit exemption for 2 years. We manage all company ARD dates and ensure that all returns are filed in a timely manner, thereby taking away the stress from company directors. We have a wealth of knowledge in the area of farming incorporations which includes setting up the company, ensuring the correct transfer of entitlements and ensuring the farmer has the correct leases in place for outbuildings and land.

Taxation is not just the submission of a tax return, we see that taxation is the foresight to see the issues before they happen, advise clients and offer options as to how best to manage their tax affairs. We also engage the services of a local external tax specialist which again enables to retain the personal links with clients while at the same time providing expert, up to date tax advice. Succession planning is another key piece of work we undertake and advise clients in relation to.
The preparation and filing of annual financial statements are compulsory for company directors. The penalty for filing accounts late is the loss of audit exemption for 2 years, which is a huge penalty. The additional work and costs for companies to prepare audited financial statements instead of audit exempt accounts can be 3-5 times the cost. Not only do we ensure the timely filing of annual returns we also ensure that your accounts format prepared is the correct format (FRS105/FRS102) and the company has documented their annual AGM requirements. Our in-house team will ensure that as a company director you meet all your statutory annual obligations.
We have teamed up with Receipt bank and Surf accounts to offer a fully automated and integrated accounting solution. This can be a no brainer to many small businesses in a time where the manual inputting of accounts data can be both costly and time consuming. This involves the direct processing of invoices from email, scanning or photo and the direct linking of your bank account to Surf so that the days of manually inputting transactions and performing bank reconciliations will be a thing of the past. We really are excited about the opportunities and the efficiencies that cloud accounting can generate for clients in the future and the seamless transfer of data from your current software providers makes it one of the easiest steps you’ll ever make.
