Business Planning

The essentials of starting a new business are always based on a realistic business plan and adequate finance.

Most prospective business owners will no doubt start with a foundation of a solid business proposition and plenty of entrepreneurial spirit.  We will carefully assess and explain to you what we believe may be the best way to operate, whether as a sole trader, limited company or LLP, taking into account practical and tax based considerations.  Where applicable we can look after the legal aspect of company formation. We will, of course, also advise on the best approach to maintaining your accounting records.  

 

In summary, whatever the size of business you are considering starting up we can provide vital advice on:

  • The form the business should take, sole trader, partnership, LLP or Limited Company.
  • Company formation procedures.
  • Preparation of projections, cash flow and business plan.
  • Structuring the financing support required.
  • Bookkeeping tuition and implementing management procedures and systems.
  • Tax planning.

 

We recommend that you do not wait to come and see us until the business is well underway, or perhaps close to needing the first set of annual Accounts to meet a reporting deadline as opportunities to operate more tax efficiently etc might already have been missed.

Company Secretarial

The company secretarial function for any business is often seen as an arduous task normally overseen by a family member or senior employee as Company Secretary.  This can be met with issues as the designated Company Secretary may not have a full understanding of the duties they are required to undertake.

With our in-house expertise, we can ensure that statuary deadlines are met; we will handle all your statutory obligations including the filing of accounts, annual returns as well as changes of directors and secretaries.  As part of the service, we manage all the paperwork required for the payment of dividends and dealing with share transfers.

Our full company secretarial services include:

  • Company formations
  • Preparation and electronic filing of statutory returns
  • Preparation of all documentation related to minutes and resolutions
  • Maintenance and storage of statutory books.

Payroll

The task of payroll processing can often divert you from your core business activity. It is our job to help and take the worry and time out of this process for you.

By allowing us to look after your payroll activity, we will free up more time for your staff to attend to other business areas, therefore creating more opportunities and raising efficiency in the business.

Our payroll services are thorough and, of course, compliant with HM Revenue & Customs statutory requirements.  We can deal with every aspect of UK wages and salary requirements including:

  • Setting up a new payroll system
  • Day to day payroll processing
  • Dealing with PAYE and National Insurance deductions
  • Completing your end of year returns
  • Holiday pay
  • Statutory pay
  • Stakeholder pensions

Personal Tax

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Audit

For an owner-manager an audit is a vital business control. It is not just about the legal requirement to do so but gives business owners an insight as to how their business is performing allowing them to take what necessary action is appropriate.

We will spend time understanding your business and then test the mechanisms in place, working closely with the team in-house, to make the audit as efficient as possible.

By doing it this way we are able offer constructive feedback on your internal systems and processes to make the audit more efficient in the future.
