Business Support Services
By gaining an understanding of our clients’ requirements we can provide a custom-designed support for each business.
When it comes to business support our team is reliable, regular and accurate. Nobody knows a business better than the people who run it, so we take the time to build a full understanding of our clients’ requirements and provide a custom-designed service for each business.
Only then will our business support services recommend the targets that help build success and profit and prepare the monthly or quarterly management accounts that monitor them. Our aim is to that ensure all business decisions are based on reliable, accurate information – something just as critical to the success of small businesses as it is to large.
Payroll is time-consuming, and the penalty regime for non-compliance leaves no margin for error. We can handle all your payroll requirements and relieve this monthly pressure at a very reasonable cost.
Bookkeeping and accountancy can be an enormous burden. We can help with general bookkeeping – either at your offices or at our own premises. By carefully reviewing your systems we can also create effective in-house management information procedures or can handle everything on your behalf. You can then be confident that you are up-to-date and accurate – at an affordable rate that leaves you free to run your business.
Business Planning and Forecasts
Every business should plan ahead, and every business understands this. But sometimes work pressures simply get in the way. We can provide you with financial forecasts that are clear, concise and timely – and that enable informed business decisions to be made.
Tax – Corporate, Personal & VAT
Through efficient tax planning and advice we can ensure you pay only the correct tax required by law. We help you understand the tax implications of your business decisions, as well as how to plan for your business in an informed tax efficient manner.
The legal responsibility for correctly calculating corporation tax falls on the business owners. We understand this can be a considerable burden for owner-managed businesses and so can prepare tax returns and calculate your company’s tax liability on your behalf.
Recently increased reporting obligations, investigation policies and harsher non-compliance penalties also mean your time and resources can easily be taken up with tax administration rather than running your business.
We help minimise corporate tax exposure and the administrative burden of compliance. Effective corporate tax planning can also result in significant improvements to your bottom line.
We can undertake the form filling and compliance aspect of Self Assessment for you, completing tax returns, calculating tax liability and advising you when to make payments and how much to pay. Our advice is always practical, and we’ll always tell you of any personal tax and planning opportunities available to you.
VAT can be complex, even for small businesses owners.
We can help you with.
- VAT Registration
- VAT Planning and Administration
- VAT Control and Reconciliation
- Completing VAT Returns
Inland Revenue Investigations
Inland Revenue investigations can be stressful and worrying – and the Revenue can now review cases on a ‘sample basis’. In short, tax investigations are becoming more frequent.
If you are about to be the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support.
With an increased risk of investigations, it may also be wise to consider an annual insurance policy that protects you and your business from unexpected costs.
An investigation will undoubtedly result in additional accountancy work being undertaken. The amount will depend on the complexity of the case, but it could be substantial. A small annual premium means you can relax; knowing you will not be liable for these professional costs.
Thinking about setting up a new business?
We know it can be daunting but we’re here to make the whole process quick and painless.
New businesses usually stem from a good idea, but new business owners seldom have the knowledge, experience or know-how to turn these ideas into a successful business. Thankfully, it’s not necessary to be an expert in every area, and many common pitfalls are easily avoided with a little support and advice.
We can help you…
- Decide if you should be a sole trader, partnership, limited company or limited liability partnership
- Prepare a business plan, cash flow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts
- Complete any registration procedures with HM Customs & Excise and Companies House
- Deal with company formation issues
- Set up a recording system for your internal use and to comply with statutory requirements
- Keep on top of bookkeeping, VAT, payroll and other accounting requirements

Helping you manage your business better means getting to know you better – and we take the time to do that. It’s all about giving you the tools that let you spot business opportunities when they arise, identify problems before they occur, and make informed decisions all of the time.
The professional and personal goals you set are central to the advice we offer, and they’re upmost in our minds when our Management Consultancy Team reviews your business. They know that every business is different, and that one-size advice rarely fits anyone – let alone all.
We can help you better control crucial areas such as credit control, stock control, budgeting and financial reporting systems – and we can help to identify and address specific problem areas such as gross profit, cost control and stock valuation.
We stay informed so we can ensure you and your business remains compliant with ever-changing rules and regulations.
