Business Support Services

As one would expect, we can help with virtually all of your day-to-day accounting needs to ensure you have more time and better information to run your business.

We have a dedicated outsourcing team to help businesses who want someone else to look after their ongoing accounting needs. This help typically involves helping with preparation and review of management accounts. This could involve all the data input, to only deal with month-end journals or just be a review of your postings.  In all cases we would comment on the results.

Our support can also just be for areas deemed confidential, such as payroll, or areas which can be complex for some businesses such as VAT return preparation.

Our specialists are well placed to offer day-to-day support. They have many years' experience dealing with businesses and attend regular training courses to ensure their knowledge of accounting and tax rules and of software developments is up-to-date. They are happy to take telephone calls to discuss any accounting queries you may have.

Our business services include:

  • Day-to-day bookkeeping
  • Management accounts (monthly / quarterly)
  • Start-up services
    • Company set up advice
    • VAT registration
    • PAYE registration
    • Software advice
    • Books and records set up
  • VAT returns
  • Payroll
  • Advice on shareholder agreements
  • Tax planning
  • Benefits and P11d reporting
  • Company secretarial matters
  • Registered Office (at no cost)
  • Auto-enrolment (using M&H Financial Planning)

When conducting our outsourcing work we will be keeping an eye on changes in legislation that may affect you in the future (so you have time to prepare) and will also keep a look out for any tax saving opportunities that may arise.

We act for numerous UK subsidiaries where they effectively outsource their accounting department to us. We provide for them monthly reposting in their required format and ensure that their payroll, VAT and company secretarial filings are up-to-date. We can also liaise with group auditors if required.

Our outsourcing team is familiar with numerous types of accounting software, although the bulk of our outsourcing work is prepared using either Sage or Xero software.

If you would like assistance or a fee quote for services please contact Andy Crook, Ross Lane, David Jones or Phil Fenn.
