Full List of Services offered by theAccountant.UK

Remote and onsite support for your existing finance team
Not all companies can either afford a full time finance manager / director. We close the gap by supporting the finance team with mentoring, help and advise but bridge tha gap between finance and management.

Financial Planning and Analysis 
theAccountant.UK can take your raw data and turn this into management accounts, cashflow and budget forecasts. With added graphics and intelligent pictorial formats to display data giving you management information to run a successful business.

VAT and Tax returns
HM Revenue & Customs is now imposing heavier penalties for late or incorrect tax returns. Why struggle to keep on top of the constant changes to tax legislation when we can take care of it for you? We can save you time, worry, and money by filing your self-assessment, partnership or corporation tax return for you, leaving you to concentrate on running your business. We will do all the necessary computations, complete your return and advise you how you can minimise your tax liability. As your agent we can also deal directly with HM Revenue & Customs on your behalf and, should you be selected for an enquiry we can act for you at any meetings.

Payroll services
We can take care of the whole payroll system for you. Under the ‘Real Time’ system introduced by HM Revenue & Customs, running your own payroll has become more complicated. Let us take the time and energy to ensure the correct figures are submitted at the right time. We will also keep up to date with the latest rules and regulations. Whatever the size of your business, we can prepare your payroll accurately and on time. We can issue payslips for the employees, supply all relevant paperwork such as P45’s and P60’s and liaise with HM Revenue & Customs.

CIS services
theAccountant.UK act as your agents, we can submit your monthly CIS return, verify any new sub-contractors and issue you with remittances to support your sub-contractors tax deductions. We’ll then inform you of how much you need to pay HM Revenue & Customs. If you have a PAYE scheme we can reconcile the sub-contractors tax and PAYE tax due so that you pay the correct amount. If you are a limited company we can also offset the tax you have had deducted at source against your sub-contractor and PAYE liability to improve your cash flow.

Company formations & Secretarial services
There are benefits to having limited liability status, so setting up a limited company and keeping it running shouldn’t be a daunting task. We can help you form a limited company with Companies House and deal with all the forms and paperwork that are involved in both the setting up process and the yearly running, leaving you free to concentrate on your business.

Board Member
Do you need a company director or company secretary? We can sit on the board or non-exec to boost your company profile or offer professional advice. We also file annual returns and maintain the company register.

Forensic Accounting and Investigations
We can extrapolate financial and statistical data from your accounting systems and check for any irregularities. Everything is checked and balanced to paper records where available to ensure piece of mind or actual theft. We can advise on security and measures to prevent and or catch the perpetrator in the act.

Credit control and Legal notices
Collect money on time and issue default notices for late payers. We work with Thomas Higgins solicitors to issue outstanding notices for just £10 each. However we find a friendly phone call works just as well and keeps the customer happy!

Value for money audits
Are you paying too much for services? We can audit your utility, motoring, technology etc expenses and offer advice on saving money. We’re so confident we can save you at least 3 x our fee for finding savings that if we can’t find ways to save you money we do this for free!

Technology and Computing
With years of setting up systems and websites, we can offer advice on how to setup your servers, PC or websites. This can be done for a fixed fee or hourly rate, your choice.
