Our Services

Company Formations

There are a number of reasons why you may want to set up a limited company but as a rough guide, if your company is turning over more than £60,000 a year it’s worth considering.  We can register the company on your behalf; provide advice, covering areas such as shares structures, ownership, salary levels and dividend extraction and register with HMRC for taxes such as VAT, PAYE, CIS.

Statutory Returns

All UK limited companies must be registered and maintain up to date records with Companies House,  we can help you through each stage of the process, from setting up your limited company to the ongoing administration.

Registered Office Facilities

When you form a limited company, you will be asked to provide an address as your registered office.  We offer a service through which you can use our registered office address, providing you with an independent address and also ensuring important documents from, for example, Companies House and HMRC, are properly received and promptly dealt with.


Most business owners hate bookkeeping – you’d much rather be out there making money for your business.  We offer a tailored bookkeeping service to suit most requirements. In some cases we carry out the work on site, for others we arrange the regular collection of paperwork and run the books from our offices. Whatever your needs our team of experienced staff can fulfil your obligations.

Management Accounts

Looking at finance accounts less than once a year is never a good idea.  The real power of a complete bookkeeping system is having important management information to hand on a timely basis.  Having your finger on the pulse of your business is crucial for making key business decisions.

Virtual Finance Department

Our offices are based near Bristol but we service a wide range of clients all over the country.  Distance is no longer a boundary thanks to our modern approach to business.  We offer cloud accounting packages meaning you are always up to date and well informed.  We can also offer dedicated phone lines and emailing, meaning your customers won’t know you have outsourced your finance department.

Invoicing and Credit Control

The issuing of prompt professional invoices contributes towards a polished company image.  This combined with effective credit control ensures a healthy cash flow and minimises the potential for bad debts.  Alternatively, if you prefer to raise your own customer invoices cloud options make this simple.


The complexities of HMRC VAT schemes can result in you unintentionally overpaying or underpaying your VAT.  We offer a complete service; advice and planning, registration, control and reconciliation, filing VAT returns and dealing with HMRC on your behalf.

Payroll and Auto-enrolment

Whether you’re a new business or looking to change provider, we provide a complete payroll service with an attention to accuracy and detail.  All too often, we gain new business because payroll providers miss the all-important details.  We produce all the necessary documentation and provide reports on what to pay and when. We also provide advice on changing legislation such as holiday entitlement and Nation Minimum Wage. In addition, we offer cost effective Auto-Enrolment solutions to your payroll to ensure you stay compliant with the law.

Construction Industry Scheme

If you work in the construction industry, whether as a contractor, subcontractor or on a construction site as part of your day-to-day duties, the work you carry out may fall under the Construction Industry Scheme.  We offer a complete service; verification of each of your subcontractors to determine the level of tax to ​deduct from them, providing the subcontractor with the necessary statements that are required by law, filing the monthly returns to HMRC and telling you what you need to pay and when.  Completing all of this on your behalf will avoid late filing penalties and ensure tax is reclaimed or paid correctly.

Accounts Preparation

Whether you are a sole-trader, partnership, charities or not-for-profit organisation, accounts preparation is an essential requirement for every business. Financial accounts meet many needs, for Companies House, HMRC and other purposes such as raising company finance. We offer a number of accountancy services to save you time and money whilst ensuring all areas are covered.  We will prepare your accounts and ensure they are submitted by the due dates.

Corporation Tax and Loss Relief

The tax on your company’s profits has to be reported and paid on time, otherwise there are heavy penalties.  Oddly the Corporation Tax payment deadline in nearly three months before the final date on which the return has to be submitted.  If we have prepared your end of year accounts, the CT assessment and online filing is all part of the service, ensuring your CT liability is carefully calculated and taking full advantage of all offsets and allowances that the business is entitled to claim.

Self Assessment

If you are self-employed, or running your own business, you will be required to file a personal tax return each year.  We provide a service to complete and file your personal Self-Assessment forms, having first made sure that you are claiming all the costs and expenses that you are allowed, to reduce your eventual tax bill.  We will make sure that you are fully aware of the payment deadline in good time ensuring your peace of mind.

Capital Gains Tax

Capital Gains Tax is a tax on profit when you sell or give away something (an asset) that has increased in value.  It’s the gain you make, not the amount of money you receive that is taxed.  We look at each case with a view to mitigating any potential tax liability, from the smallest liability to the most significant one.  We are here to guide you through this complex tax, even looking at private residence relief where applicable.

Training and HR Services

We offer software and accounting support and training, this can be for your in-house accounting personnel or for yourself and can add value to your existing function, improve your internal reporting and reduce your end of year accountancy costs. We also offer HR services; handling your starters, leavers, contracts of employment and recording holidays etc.  Outsourcing this function has many benefits; most notably it is more cost effective than employing someone to do this and ensures your staff details and salaries remain entirely confidential.
