Services

Our comprehensive range of financial and business support services and ongoing strategic advice has helped many of our clients to grow and develop their businesses over the years.

Our aim is to provide a professional, personal, effective solution to all of your day-to-day accounting, auditing and taxation needs. We use our expertise to complete this work quickly and accurately, and our experience to explore opportunities and identify potential problems before they arise.

By getting to know you and your business we aim to become a valuable member of your team. We always aim to exceed your expectations and go that step further.

Pension Auto Enrolment

Whether you have one employee or 100 employees, auto enrolment places significant responsibilities on an employer. Employers need to enrol many of their employees into a work based pension scheme and pay some pension contributions.

We can help you:

  • Prepare for the start of auto enrolment in your business by an initial analysis of your workforce
  • Prepare communication letters to your employees
  • Calculate employee and employer contributions and prepare payment schedules for the pension scheme provider
  • Assess your workers each pay day to determine if they need to be auto enrolled
  • Register with The Pensions Regulator and help you keep the required records
  • After three years review the position of employees who originally opted out

It is vitally important that you prepare early and we would recommend starting initial preparations no later than nine months before your staging date. For example it could take three months to set up the pension scheme. If it is left too late you may fall foul of TPR regulations which could result in fines being imposed.

Audit

Many limited companies and other entities are required by law to have their accounts audited. We are Registered Auditors and have experience in a wide range of businesses, from small family-owned companies to large organisations.

Our audit services aim to provide you with confidence in the accuracy of your financial statements, and assurance as to the efficiency and effectiveness of your accounting procedures and internal controls.

Business and Corporate Tax

We relieve you of the administrative burden of complying with tax legislation and help you minimise your corporation tax payments. We deal with all business tax matters, including preparing income and / or corporation tax computations and preparing and submitting the relevant self-assessment returns.

VAT

VAT (Value Added Tax) is one of the most complex taxes imposed on business and one that many businesses inadvertently overpay or underpay. With a constant stream of detailed changes to the regulations, businesses can find it difficult to ensure they comply.

We provide a cost effective VAT service and work with a wide variety of businesses, providing varying levels of support from general advice to VAT return completion. We have helped many of our clients to reduce VAT assessments and minimise their VAT liabilities.
