Our Services

Here to help, whenever you need us.

Accounting & Bookeeping

Whether you are a limited company, sole trader or partnership waiting for year-end results can be a time of uncertainty for a business. The outcome may be unexpected and unwelcome, leaving you with difficult problems to solve that could result in unnecessary expenditure.

Engaging a firm of Chartered Accountants who will work closely with you throughout the year to deal with problems as they arise will provide peace of mind and increase the overall efficiency of the task.

Whatever your needs, we can provide your business with a time and cost-effective solution.

Taxation & VAT services

Whatever your ambitions for the future, tax could get in the way. You need to have advisers on hand to ensure that your ambitions are realised without tax proving to be too much of a cost. The UK has one of the most complex tax systems in the world.

Our tax advisory team have extensive experience in working with businesses of all sizes and complexities, and working with individuals with different circumstances and aims for the future.

The team will spend time with you to really understand your issue and then work with you to develop a strategy that will provide you with a solution that works both commercially and is tax efficient.

Budgeting & Forecasting

Every management team has an opinion about what will happen to their business in the short, medium and long term, but having the ability to formalise those thoughts is a different matter. Many business owners have been in the situation where some significant expenditure is planned on one project or another, resulting in a facility being required from the bank.

It is much better to prepare in advance for these times of need than to approach a provider of finance at a time of weakness, when immediate support is necessary. Furthermore, a grant may be available to assist you in financing future projects.

Business & Strategic Planning

In a fast-changing world it is becoming more and more essential to know where your business is going, in terms of financial fluctuations. Every management team has an opinion about what will happen to their business in the short, medium and long term, but very few have the ability to formalise their thoughts.

We have all been in the situation where some significant expenditure is planned on one project or another, resulting in a facility being required from the bank. It is much better to prepare in advance for these times of need than to ask a provider of finance at a time of weakness, when immediate support is necessary.

Engaging a firm of Chartered Accountants who can provide this extremely beneficial service can result in an improvement to the bottom line, and help to focus forward thinking.

Finance Transformation

Having your management accounts reviewed by our experts ensures you have knowledge that you can trust, enabling you to make more informed choices.

Accurate financial information places you in the best position to be able to generate opportunities, such as; apply for funding, grant applications, R&D claims, patent box and other strategies.

We can provide a full commentary of the main issues, our observations of financial areas of uncertainty and risks to the business as well as compliance failures. As a business owner, this offers you the maximum chance to mitigate those risks and act on a timely basis.

Cashflow Management

All business owners have a “feel” for their business but not all will have regularly updated financial forecasts. We can provide you with regular updated cashflow projections based on rolling forecasts for the next one, two or three years.

We can advise you of the peaks and troughs in your cash flow, monitoring actual results against budgeted performance. We can highlight if and when any banking covenants may be breached so that the business can take fast remedial action. A good year’s results may result in a high corporation tax bill so we can firstly include such payments in the cash flow projection for next year and secondly call in our tax advisory team to see how the tax bill can be minimised.

Any expanding business will have greater demands on cash flow, as more and more cash is tied up in stock and debtors. This is technically called “overtrading” and presents a cash flow management risk to many businesses, especially those that expand quickly after a period of recession. Regular advice and recommendations from our Outsourcing Team will allow you to control the risk as you maximise the returns to your business.

Cash flow management also extends to arranging payment runs for suppliers and credit control services for customer accounts.

Year End Accounts

Every UK based company, charity and, indeed, branch of an overseas company needs to produce year end Statutory Accounts for filing at Companies House or the Charity Commission, as well as for their directors, shareholders and other stakeholders, such as bankers and, when required, HM Revenue & Customs.

The various changing formats and options can lead to confusion and the year end can feel like a huge hurdle for your finance team.

Our skilled team are up to date with all the issues and have a wealth of experience to advise you on preparation of Statutory Accounts so the results are fully compliant with the rules applicable to your company, professional and which present your company in the best possible light to the public, to your shareholders and to other stakeholders, such as your bankers.
