Our working style and team structure recognizes that you want to work in conjunction with your accountants. You may outsource aspects such as bookkeeping, payroll and management accounting but your overall requirement is that you can work with your accountant as your key business adviser. You want an accountant that listens and understands your business before giving advice.
We have designed our services so that you get to know as many of our team as possible. Our MD, Mark Hjertzen is always available to give you the benefit of his broad and detailed experience of SME’s and Owner Managed Businesses .Other members of the team are on hand to advise on areas such as taxation ,accounting, company secretarial and audit. Whilst team members have specific areas of expertise they have a sufficient knowledge of other areas for our advice to include a consideration of any wider consequences that it might have. We look at the whole picture not just the part. For example, if we are advising on a tax matter we will consider the impact of the advice on your accounting policies and vice versa.
Our reputation is for helping businesses from conception through to sale or succession. We aim to provide the widest possible range of high quality, realistically priced services to businesses. We will be very pleased to help yours.
Audits, Independent Examinations and Assurance
We have substantial experience of auditing UK subsidiaries of European holding companies. We currently act for subsidiaries of French, German, Danish, Italian and Dutch companies.
We plan our audits to minimise the disruption to the client whilst ensuring that deadlines are met and that our fees are charged on a sensible and realistic basis. Our audits are risk based which means that we can concentrate on those areas that are of most interest to management.
Having a disciplined approach to audit means that we can also apply our specialist skills to a range of non-audit functions such as forensic, due diligence assignments and investigatory assignments.
Apart from preparing annual accounts and periodic management accounts we advise on compliance matters and the design of accounting systems.
Our services include independent examination, statutory audit, internal audit and general advice.
Bookkeeping, Payroll and Business Support
Our bespoke payroll service covers all of your compliance obligations together with providing you with summaries and analyses of staff costs in whichever format is most appropriate to your business.
We can advise on the administration of ex-gratia payments, bonuses, incentive schemes, maternity pay and statutory sick pay together with any other areas that might crop up from time to time.
Our wide range of business support services extend from advising, for example, on the appropriateness of H M Revenue & Customs’ various VAT schemes and the completion of VAT returns for the scheme most appropriate to your business to advising foreign companies on setting up operations in the UK.
