We offer a full range of services aimed at individuals and small businesses. The list below is an example of some of the services we can offer, but is not exhaustive. If you think there is an area we could help with, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Self-Assessment Tax Returns - for individuals and small businesses.
You provide us with the information (which might be in the form of a bag of receipts!), and we will turn this into a Self Assessment submission!
VAT Returns (MTD Compliant!)
Since April 2019 most VAT registered businesses are required to submit VAT returns in an Making Tax Digital (MTD) compliant format. We use Quickbooks Online or Sage to prepare your information and submit it to HMRC in the approved format.
PAYE and Payroll
We can provide weekly or monthly payroll services, including all aspects of managing and recording sick leave, annual leave, pension auto enrolment etc.
Sales and Invoice Recording
Whatever the size of your small business, you will have records for sales and expenses! We use Excel, Quickbooks Online or Sage to analyse and record these for you. Whether you have a neat file of paperwork, or a bag of receipts, we can sort these out for you!
If you don't yet have bookkkeping software we
can help advise on this, and may be able to
provide licensed copies at discounted rates!.
An important part of bookkeeping is regular bank reconciliations, to ensure that all payments made and received have been correctly recorded. We routinely carry these out for all clients as part of day-to-day bookkeeping, and are also happy to help and advise on how best to record and keep track of petty cash and cash till transactions.
We will provide all small businesses with management reports on a regular basis. As a minimum this would be monthly Profit & Loss statements, but we will work with you to provide the reports you need for the day-to-day running of your business in a format and frequency which works best for you.
Liaison with Accountants
For some small-medium sized businesses (particularly limited companies), it may be appropriate to employ an accountant as well as a bookkeeper. This is very normal practice, and we would prepare your books in a cost-effective way which makes it easy and straightforward for your Accountant to produce financial statements for your business each year.
General Office Administration
We can help with other general office administration tasks as required. Examples might include support with social media and website administration or producing forms and spreadsheets for particular tasks.
