Accounts preparation is a core part of our service to ensure you are able to fulfill the reporting requirements your business must meet in respect of its obligations to stakeholders and regulatory bodies, such as HMRC and Companies House. We prepare non-statutory accounts for sole traders and statutory accounts for limited companies.


We will prepare and submit your Company’s Corporation Tax Return to HMRC and advise you on any tax liability which is due within nine months of the year end. If you are a sole trader, knowing how much tax you have to pay, and when you have to pay it, is vital. We have vast experience looking after the tax affairs of business owners.


It may feel like you can save money by doing everything in your business yourself. However, using a local bookkeeper can actually save you more money and time in the long run. These savings come from a reduced risk of human error, years of experience working with many other clients, no missed payments to HMRC or missed tax deadlines.


Starting your own small business is hard work, and while a little daunting at the beginning, it’s an exciting moment in your life! Our goal is to help small business startups build strong foundations with as much accounting and tax support and advice as they need. We will meet all your tax, bookkeeping, and accounts requirements  


Not all accounting is aimed at meeting your statutory obligations. Some types of accounting are designed to provide business owners with information to help run and grow their business. Management accounts are a set of financial statements prepared on a monthly or quarterly basis, which provide an insight into the financial trading position of your business.


Whether you employ only a handful of people or a large workforce, dealing with the payroll and ensuring compliance with legislation, and avoiding possible fines, can be yet another burden and concern. By using our payroll service, you will be able to ensure pay is made in accordance with the appropriate legislation, allowing you to focus on your business.


Our business services include: planning, budgeting and raising finance through: expansion, restructuring, mergers and management buy-outs. We help business start-ups save time, money and stress in the long run. Our services include: Company formation, supporting raising finance, opening bank accounts, business plans and management accounts.


There are a number of reasons why a small business should use a Virtual Financial Officer service, including controlling back office costs, gaining access to additional financial and accounting expertise and freeing up time to focus on their core activities. Our VFO service utilises technology to help you make the right decisions for your business.
