Accounts Production

We can...
Prepare accounts to help in completion of self-assessment tax returns;
Produce financial statements to file at Companies House and abbreviated accounts to ensure the minimum amount of your financial information is made public.
We ensure that Accounts are prepared to agreed timescales and deadlines.
But we can do more than just report the history of what's already happened...
Identify areas where we can assist in minimising your tax liability;
Identify areas of the business that give you the most opportunity to make improvements;
Use the accounts to help you measure where you are in meeting your goals and what actions you need to take.
We take the time to explain your accounts to you so that you understand what is going on financially within your business, helping you to plan for the future.

Management accounts and Bookkeeping

Management Accounts

We are able to prepare half yearly, quarterly or even monthly accounts in a client specific layout, to give management up to date information which enables them to make prompt and informed decisions to move their businesses forward.


We can relieve you and your business of a significant burden by taking care of all your bookkeeping and accounting needs. This ranges from making use of our inhouse bookkeeping bureau to the preparation of your annual accounts. We will treat every business individually so that we can tailor our approach to your requirements.
Besides the core bookkeeping, we also maintain your VAT records, prepare your payroll and take on ad hoc projects to free up valuable time for your staff.

Company Secretarial

We can help you fulfill this role and offer the following services...

  • Registered office facilities;
  • Maintenance of statutory registers;
  • Submission of statutory documents;
  • Giving notice of General Meetings;
  • Drafting agendas for company meetings;
  • Preparing Minutes of Meetings;
  • Completion of share transfer forms;
  • Preparation of share certificates;
  • Carrying out company searches;
  • Filing of Compliance Statement;
  • Acting as Company Secretary;
  • General Company Law advice;
  • Advice on protection of minority interests.


HM Customs and Excise have ever increasing powers which give many day to day headaches for businesses in dealing with VAT.

We can help to steer you through the minefield of regulations and set up the right sort of recording systems so that trouble can be minimized.
We advise on when its advantageous to register and de-register and which of the optional systems are the right ones for the business. We'll help in dealing with inspections and give what assistance is needed should a client be singled out for special examination.
Again, for peace of mind there can be insurance against the extra costs of coping in the unlucky event of a VAT Investigation.

Corporate Taxation

We provide services to enable your business to be fully compliant with all corporation tax requirements: preparing corporation tax returns, submitting returns to HMRC within 12 months of the accounting year end, fulfilling the tagging requirements of the statutory financial statements (with detailed profit and loss account), calculating the amount of the corporation tax liability and advising on the payment dates of liabilities.

As part of the process we would involve you to ensure we can legitimately minimise your corporation tax liability by spotting planning opportunities.

Personal Taxation

We provide a comprehensive personal tax compliance service for individuals and partnerships that includes:
  • completing your personal tax return to include all income from all sources and to claim all allowances and reliefs available to you
  • calculating your overall liabilities for the year and advising you of these and of the due dates for payment
  • receiving and checking your self-assessment statements of account and liaising with HM Revenue & Customs as necessary
  • dealing with claims to reduce payments on account, which can be beneficial under self assessment.
  • dealing with HM Revenue & Customs investigations and aspect enquiries.

Tax Planning

Not only is the tax man always with us, but tax law is continually changing and never gets easier.

It is therefore very rare that an individual or business cannot benefit from, or has no need for, readily expert advice on taxation. 

We do more than merely advise on a piecemeal basis - we look ahead to your future. We take into consideration how you plan to expand or diversify your business, where you hope to invest, and what provision you intend making for your retirement and your family.

When we are advising pension plans, personal investments and planning for the future we always do so with the most advantageous tax perspective in mind whilst also considering the particular needs of the client, as tax is not always the most important factor.

Even though we identify problems before information is submitted to the Revenue, difficulties can arise. For extra peace of mind we offer insurance against the extra costs of coping with HMRC Investigations.

Fixed Fees

Would you like to know what you will be charged before you are billed?

Since we introduced a FIXED FEE POLICY for the majority of the services we offer, our clients have found the certainty of knowing what their fees are going to be and when they were payable much more satisfactory.
We do not believe in sending out unexpected invoices.
