Help & Support

Isn’t it just larger businesses that need an accountant?
Not at all, all businesses, both large and small, can benefit from advice on ways to manage their financial affairs and reduce their tax liabilities. We can handle all of your bookkeeping, management accounts preparation, payroll and VAT returns on your behalf. By doing this it makes the preparation of the final accounts easier, saving time but also critically giving us a good insight into all of your financial affairs. From that we are better informed to offer you the sound advice you need to grow your business.

Can I maintain my own accounting records?
Of course you can and we will always be available to provide help and training should you need it. The better prepared you are to maintain your accounting records the more time you can spend on running your business.

Can you help me grow my business?
There is no one size fits all and we will sit down with you and to discuss your business and ascertain your goals, and then together we can develop a strategy which will be the foundation on which you can build your business. Growth requires leadership and teamwork, and we have access to a wide range of other professionals who can play a part in your overall team if required.

Why do I need the best accountant I can get?
Growing a business requires a great deal of teamwork and an accountant is an integral part of that team. We can help compile and interpret the financial position of your business, and offer relevant advice thereon throughout the year to help you understand where your business is in terms of financial stability and what you can do to move forward. By taking away the headache of accounting and tax compliance work we can also free up your time to spend on working in your business.

Why are accountants expensive?
Any business has a whole range of costs and the fees of an accountant are just one of those costs. The cost of not having an accountant may end up costing your business more, as a good accountant will add value not only in terms of mitigating your tax liabilities but by providing good, sensible financial and commercial advice. We will work closely with you to ensure that you get value for money.

How do you charge?
Our charges are based on the projected hours we anticipate working on your behalf during the year. We put together and agree with you a fixed fee which will cover the work you have asked us to do. Should any additional work be required then we will again provide a quote and agree with you in advance a fee for that additional work. Continual contact and ad hoc advice is built into the fee so there are no surprise charges for any queries you may raise during the year. We also offer the chance to pay our fees by monthly standing order thereby spreading the cost and easing your cashflow.

How easy is it to change accountants?
If you believe that changing to us is the right thing for your business then the process is very simple. We will guide you through what needs to happen and will work closely with your previous accountants to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities.
