Preparing Accounts should be much more than a reaction to a deadline set by HM Revenue and Customs - with foresight they can be a useful planning tool. There are many benefits to having your accounts prepared sooner rather than later:
We currently prepare VAT returns for a number of clients in various different industries. From Catering to Hairdressers to Motor Vehicle Garages, we are familiar with the nuances of VAT and can advise you accordingly. When HM Revenue Customs do come knocking, we are also familiar with the workings of the Compliance review and will fight your corner when the time arrives. Take the strain out of your book-keeping each quarter - hand us your records and sit back and wait for the completed return to come back in good time to avoid the possibility of punitive VAT surcharges of up to 15%!

We have extensive knowledge in the field of taxation - both Corporate and Personal. Broadly speaking we can help you with the following areas:

Personal Tax
Self Assessment Return forms, Partnership SA Returns, Empoyed Cases.We can help you with tax planning, tax enquiries and the simple preparation of returns be it a straightforward case of calculating your personal tax liability for the year or calculating and including your Capital Gains. What's more, our e-filing capability means that anyone due a refund should obtain it far quicker than through conventional channels - and the Revenue receive the form on time every time - no Royal Mail intervention required! In particular this can be of huge benefit to subcontractors.In good time, each year without fail we will write to you clearly explaining and setting out your tax liabilities even including a tax payment schedule to make sure you don't miss that all important deadline. If you do you could be liable to punitive surcharges.

Corporate Taxation
We also prepare CT600's for many Companies from their accounts. We can advise you of your liability to tax, when it is due and also advise you as to the impact of the new tax on Non-Corporate Distributions. Through pre-emptive tax planning and the use of salary and Dividends, we are also able to help you plan your affairs to make best use of the current tax regime. Don't drift along aimlessly paying unnecessary tax - come and see us and we can help you mitigate your tax liabilities.
Our Payroll bureau is fully equipped to assist you with all aspects of RTI and CIS. We can provide you with payslips and detailed management reports for weekly, four weekly, two weekly and monthly pay cycles. We also prepare BACs runs for clients who appreciate the peace of mind that comes with knowing someone else has a handle on when the payroll submissions are due.

Our payroll software also caters for reporting benefits on form P11D. This often overlooked area of payroll can prove to be costly as the Inland Revenue can seek to gross up some benefits received without inclusion on P11D.

We also have knowledge and resources to be able to deal with most payroll topics including SMP, SSP, dismissal, redundancy and much more.

Tax planning
Wouldn't you rather know how much you need to put away 9 months in advance rather than find you have a several thousand pound tax bill to pay next week?

Having reliable up to date financial information is much more likely to result in you getting the finance you require.

Acccounts are historical, but have them done quickly and you know immediately where your money is going, how your margins compare to competitors etc.

If you have a Limited Company, the law specifies that you must keep satisfactory records. Even if you're not, if the Inland Revenue want to know how you arrived at your taxable profit, you need to be able to show them!
