We were asked recently how we start to help a potential client who has an already established business.
They usually have an internal accounts person – perhaps recording everything on Sage or QuickBooks accounts software.
We can provide all the support they need and complete the tasks they are not comfortable with. This can include posting month end journals and the preparation of monthly or quarterly accounts.
We run a payroll bureau so we can advise on net pay and payments due to HMRC and deal with the RTI submissions to HMRC.
We can answer technical questions they may have on benefits in kind, company cars, VAT issues, and also we give general business advice.
We can give tax planning advice including looking at the share structure of the business.
We can help with the preparation of business plans and projections to help raise bank finance etc.
So it is definitely not just about year-end accounts!
We look at simple ways of saving our client’s money
We give practical help and guidance when they want it and where they want it
And once we are engaged with the client, we try to ensure they do not miss the many deadlines which give rise to ever more penalties.
Call us to set up a meeting, so that we can help you run your business more effectively
