Accounting and Bookkeeping

The last thing you want in your business is to have valuable time and resources tied up with routine bookkeeping and accounting.That’s something we can do for you, either at your office or at ours. We begin by discussing your specific requirements with you and then we set up appropriate accounting procedures and controls and ensure your accounts are kept fully up-to-date and in compliance with statutory regulations.

Business Start-up

Most people who start up in business do so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through, not because they are experts in the legal, financial, and fiscal aspects of running a business. Indeed, these matters can often seem daunting, and even off-putting, to the budding entrepreneur. The good news is that you do not need to be an expert in these fields to succeed in business. All you need is the support of a team of trained experts.

Corporation Tax

Corporation tax represents a substantial part of your trading costs. Moreover, the increased reporting obligations, robust investigation policies on the part of the tax authorities, and harsher penalties for non-compliance mean that an undue amount of your time and resources can be taken up collecting revenue for the Government. We offer a range of services to help you minimise your corporate tax exposure and relieve you of the administrative burden of complying with tax legislation.

Payroll

Administering your Payroll can be time consuming and burdensome and diverts energy and resources from the core activities of your business. This task is made all the more difficult by the growing complexity of taxation and employment legislation and the accompanying regime of penalties for non-compliance. We have a dedicated staff that will relieve you of all of these burdens and provide you with a comprehensive and confidential Payroll Service.

This includes:-

  • Customised payslips.
  • Administration of PAYE, National Insurance Contributions, Statutory Sick Pay, Statutory Maternity Pay, etc.
  • Completion of statutory forms, including Year-end documents to issue to your employees and Returns to submit to the Inland Revenue.
  • Summaries and analyses of staff costs.
  • Administration of incentive schemes, bonuses, and ex-gratia and termination payments.
  • Administration of pension schemes.
Self Employed

Our firm has an enormous amount of experience in dealing with Self-employed individuals and Partners. Whether this refers to a Sub contractor in the construction industry, Self- employed trades people or Partners within Professional practices, we have the experience and know-how, to deal with all aspects of self-employment.

We will guide clients as to their responsibilities and other matters relating to VAT registration and payment of National Insurance Contributions, and we will clearly make aware to our clients the level of current and future tax liabilities. We are happy to accept information from our client in any form, including very basic records, i.e. the traditional paper bag full of invoices and paperwork, or from the more experienced bookkeepers that provide written ledgers, Excel spreadsheets or even computer generated back up copies. Whatever your current bookkeeping levels, we will always work alongside you and make the process of transferring information to us as simple as possible.

We have a large number of self-employed clients and give an extremely personalised and informative service. One of our priorities is to always communicate with our client in a non-technical, easy to understand manner.

VAT (Value Added Tax)

Value added tax is one of the most complex and onerous tax regimes imposed on business – so complex that many businesses inadvertently overpay or underpay VAT.

The ever widening scope of VAT, the constant stream of detailed changes to the regulations, and the ever growing demands of Customs and Excise call for a trained professional eye to ensure that you do not fall foul of the regulations and do not pay the Exchequer more than you need to!
  • We provide an efficient cost effective VAT service, which includes:
  • Assistance with VAT registration.
  • Advice on VAT planning and administration.
  • Use of the most appropriate scheme.
  • VAT control and reconciliation.
  • Help with completing VAT returns.
  • Planning to minimise future problems with Customs and Excise.
  • Negotiating with Customs and Excise in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals.
