Business Taxation

small ovalCore Business

Our core business services are aimed at small businesses, taking in business from small start up enterprises through to sole traders, and more mature Limited Company enterprises with turnovers up to the audit threshold of £6.5 million.

Rather than being a faceless "tax'n'accounts" factory the ethos is to provide solid personal service for all types of businesses and be the first point of professional contact for small businesses owners whether your question is a technical bookkeeping one or to act as a sounding board for your concerns over your business strategy.

Although your accountant's core service is always going to be the completion of your tax returns and accounts, we are skilled to act on a far broader management basis. Tax efficiency is one consideration, but we can also work as a virtual Finance Director, giving advice and practical assistance on wider issues such as business direction and development, credit control, accounting systems, investment evaluations, PAYE and staffing issues and more.

Unlike many practitioners our principal James Smith has considerable experience working as an accountant in industry so we have seen both sides and do not just have a blinkered "practice" view that is unfortunately not uncommon in our industry.
