Your accounts tell your financial story and should be prepared in a meaningful way. We prepare a set of annual accounts that are meaningful to you, with insights as to what your numbers say. Your business tells a story and the best way to understand that is through the growth of your business and looking at the numbers that matter to you most. We will look at relevant non-fictional information and focus on the information you want that will in turn run your business easier and better.
We will also prepare statutory and other regulatory accounts to meet your legal obligations and aim to prepare these with minimum fuss and time so that we can focus our time on things that will help you and your business in the long run, such as saving you tax, explaining what your numbers mean and helping you to maintain, improve and grow your business. Copies of your statutory accounts must be sent to all shareholders, Companies House, HMRC and people who can go to the company’s general meetings.
Accounts for HMRC - Sole Traders & Partnerships
For Sole Traders and Partnerships you will need to present accounts that are acceptable to HMRC. We will prepare these accounts from your annual accounts and allow you to have peace of mind knowing that they have been properly submitted to HMRC. The last thing you want to worry about is making sure these are submitted and we can take that worry away from you.
Company Secretarial Work
Company Secretarial services are probably the least understood aspect of running a company. In return for limited liability, a company is legally obliged to carry out several duties. Whilst filing annual accounts and tax returns are the obvious, companies also have to keep statutory records, minutes of certain decisions and events, notify Companies House within a time scale of certain changes or event, and prepare minutes and tax vouchers for dividends paid. If these are not done, if becomes hard to sell your company, or borrow monies, and a host of other things.
Appointing a company secretary can be extremely helpful to the effective running of the company. We offer this service to make sure we deal with these matters as standard, keeping you legal and up to date.
